I'm so addicted to couponing and chasing a good deal. Thank goodness I have a wonderful husband We've been married 12 years. (He must love me very much because he puts up with my couponing and low carb cooking)!!! We live in San Antonio, home of the NBA champions, San Antonio Spurs!! I am a big Dallas Cowboys fan and have always admired my favorite player, Roger Staubach. We belong to a Texas Hold 'em Poker League and have made some really good friends while playing poker. I am a proud Grandmother and love spending time with my "munchkins".

HEB shop-using up the cats

Okay, I have a boat load of $1.50 and $2 catalina coupons that I collected during the BTFE deal they had. I had some expiring today and by 10/19 I will have to use the rest. The catalina coupons say -Save $1.50 (or $2) off any HEB own brand item, so I have been on a scavenger hunt to find HEB brand items that I will use. Actually this is very easy because HEB has such a vast variety of its own brand items. Hill country fare also qualifies-it has to do with the bar code number on the item (starts with 4122 0).
Today I spent $8.35 cash OOP for $30 worth of groceries! That's pretty good for HEB! I did do this in  5 transactions just to be on the safe side and used a $1.50 or $2 cat each time.  As it was, a manager was called 2 out of the 5 times and I have no idea why.

Thanks to Katy's Couponers for blogging about a great deal opportunity. Use the $1.50 off any Vicks from 10/10 PG on a small box of Vicks cough drops.  The Vicks are .99 and each $1.50 coupon takes off the full amount with no beeping. That means .51 overage for each one you buy.  I was able to use 6 coupons and I have more for tomorrow!
