My last tripples at Waldbaums.

The next several posts I will explain my simple system, for anyone who is not solely devoted to being frugal, but is still a frugal at heart.

Many supermarkets double coupons, and if you're lucky, several times a year they will tripple coupons for a week. These are the weeks I replenish my stockpile, and get all my necessities free or almost free. I don't keep many dried items and what I have I keep in my 2nd freezer.

Here's some of the junk I picked up on my last tripples.

I did one last trip in which I picked up a few more of the free stuff. By then I was exhausted and didn't keep a record of it.

Wish i could retire now LOL.

That's a great trip! Our stores don't double or triple coupons here. The best we have is a twice-a-year caselot sale, which was this week. I don't get anything for free, but they do have great deals on canned goods (corn, tomatoes, beans, green beans, and mandarin oranges).
