  1. Mary, Rosie and I think that we should all receive a complimentary box of hot cocoa 🙂

    Lol! I guess since some of those coupons came from the office recycling bin it would only be fair to share some with you 🙂

  3. Katie says:

    But did you have to go through the line 7 times?!

  4. admin says:

    Not really. I had them ring my order up as 7 separate transactions so that I could “roll” the OYNO coupons. If the 18 boxes of Swiss Miss would have been rung up in one transaction the register would have only given me $3 OYNO order instead of $9 so I had to split them up.

    I organize my cart as a I shop so that when I get to the register I can just put the product up on the line in the order I want them rung up. I also make sure I have my coupons organized and in order before I go to the store. This saves a ton of time when you are in line. I also tell anyone that gets in line behind me that I have a lot of coupons and will be doing separate transactions so they know I might be awhile. If someone comes up in line behind me with only a few things I’ll tell them to go in front of me. I try to be courteous to the other shoppers. Most of the cashiers at my GE are used to this and are pretty fast. The cashier today did the 7 separate transactions and all the coupons in under 7 minutes.
