  1. WOW!!! You did good girl!

  2. I wish I could do this good in real life. Unfortunately we’re moving this week, so I just have to delight in the possibilities… :-)

  3. I’m new to all of this, so it might be a dumb question… When you say “transaction #1”, etc. are you leaving the store & returning another time, or are you just grouping your items & paying for them by group, all in the same trip?

  4. Both. I usually will do 2 transactions in a trip and the cashiers don’t give me any hassle. If the store is not at all busy I might do more, but I try not to hold anyone up. Sometimes Hubby is sweet enough to go with me and I’ll hand him my RRs from Trans 2 and he’ll do my trans 3 and 4. I also am lucky that there are 3 stores within 2 miles of me in Tyler, so sometimes I’ll do 2 transactions at one store and drive to another store to do 2 more. Clearance selections change so I like to check those out anyway.

    Troup hwy store doesn’t have the Acai berry programed correctly in their system so it is not BOGO and the January coupon book is only taking $5 off instead of $10. I hear they are well stocked on it though per my Mom. I want your Natrol coupons if you don’t:) I take the Acai berry daily.

  6. Question…when you print your coupons do you print in color or black and white? The price for ink if expensive didnt know if it made a difference being scanned easily or not..

  7. Always in black. Funny you should ask because I just posted a few weeks back about this. http://www.thriftytexaspenny.com/2010/12/save-money-on-your-printing-costs.html
