Shaw's Dollar Doublers: Day 2

Another benefit of today's Hannaford Hopping was having the option to visit a Shaw's store other than my own.  I did get advanced notice that the Scarborough store was fully stocked on Uncle Ben's Rice, so we headed there to break things up a bit.  

This was my strategy:

The Dollar Doubler (DD) items I wanted were the Uncle Ben's Rice (9 total, meaning 3 Q's, so I could get the $3 Catalina), two more boxes of Wheat Thins and four bags of Tostitos since I found the $1/2 tearpad at the Gorham Hannaford.  That gave me seven $1 coupons to double, so I also added in some YoCrunch yogurt.

My Cart:

4 Bags of Tostitos at $3.99 each, BOGO
Used $1/2 from tearpad
Total of $5.98 BDD (before dollar doublers)

2 Wheat Thins Bold Flavors, $2.50 each
Used 2 $1/1 Facebook Coupons
Total of $3 BDD

This brings my total to $8.98 BDD


2 Tostitos Salsas using another coupon found on a tearpad at Hannaford in Buxton the other day for a Free Sala or Queso WYB 2 Tostitos

4 Maruchan Yakisoba noodles, free with $.50/1 from the 3/11 SmartSource

Now I had to bring my total after manufacturer's coupons to $15 in order to use the Dollar Doublers

12-pack of Scott Bath Tissue, regularly $10.99 on sale for $6.99
Used $.99/1 Scott Bath Tissue 8-roll or more
I expected it to double, but there is tiny print stating do not double...I was shocked that the cashier noticed, but she did even though I didn't!
Paid $6.00, bringing my total to $14.98 

Half Dozen Rolls from the reduced bakery section, $1.75

Total BDD was now $16.48 (I thought it would be closer to $15, but the Scott not doubling made it a bit higher)
Total OOP was $12.83, down from $48.04 
Savings of 74%!!!

Hubby's Cart:

9 Boxes of Uncle Ben's Rice $1 each
Used 3 $1/3 Uncle Ben's Coupons
Total of $6 BDD

4 Yoplait YoCrunch Yogurts $.60 each
Used $1/4 YoCrunch Coupon
Total of $1.40 BDD

This brings his total to $7.40 BDD

He also got one free package of Maruchan Yakisoba noodles

His fillers to get to the $15 minimum were:

Shaw's Chicken Strips, regularly priced at $4.99, on sale for $3.99
Manager's Special Coupon for $1.50 off on the package
Paid $2.49

Total BDD was $17.11

Plus $3 Catalina earned for purchasing 8 or more Uncle Ben's products!
