I got 4 containers of Huggies wipes, 8 soft packs (the Christmas ones), 3 jars of Gerber baby food, a cheese stick, a Huggies babywash, and Huggies disposable washcloths for a grand total of $2.62!

I also picked up some Christmas clearance. I got the Cherry Cordial Hershey kisses which were marked down to .69 a bag and then used the .50 off coupons so woohoo for .19 a bag!!! I got some lights for .50 a set! I'm officially stocked for wrapping paper, boxes, Christmas cards for next year and possibly 2 years.

Well I shopped in Delaware so no sales tax!

I had to do a bunch of transactions but it was worth it.

I had 2 coupons for Huggies Ultra clean sensitive .75 off each and then the $3 off 2 Huggies products making my total .28 for 2 containers. I did the same thing with Huggies Supreme Wipes.

I had 2 coupons for $1 of bath/body products by Huggies so I got 2 of those and used another $3 coupon.

Then I did the soft packs of wipes 2 at a time plus a jar a baby food or cheese stick with the $3 off coupons. The wipes were $1.47 so I needed something else for the overage.

Technically, there's only supposed to be one 3.00 coupon per transaction. I split mine up too... I did three transactions the other night...

Yeah the $3 off coupon says one per transaction and sometimes they are pretty strict about it. So I had DH sit in their little "food court" area and feed Ben will I made several trips through the line. After 2 trips I smartened up. I had kept running back to the baby department each time to get what I needed.

Then I got smarter and put all of the wipes and stuff I was getting into a cart then parked the cart behind a clothes rack in the girl's section (near the registers). I paid for my stuff, handed it off to DH and then went back to my little stash for more. I'm all about the savings but not so much about the exercise involved!

Lazy and cheap!!! Doesn't get any better than that does it?

It doesn't say one per customer, just one per transaction... so I put it all up on the conveyor and separate with the little dividers and say, "I'll be doing XX transactions." Not my fault they stipulated it the way they did. Let them ring them up separate, but as long as it doesn't say one per customer, I am not going to pretend I'm only using one.

There's nothing to get away with, silly. We're totally within the realm of the guidelines clearly written by them on their coupon--one per transaction. They've issued coupons before that say one per customer. These don't say that.

Thanks for the info! I was getting dirty looks just for using the coupons. Sometimes I'd like to slap the dirty looks right off their faces. One lady was totally impressed. At first she didn't know what to do. She was like "you have 3 coupons for 2 items, you can't do that." I told her I could and she finally tried it and it worked. She was impressed!
