Here’s another shopping trip sent in by a Queen Bee reader – way to go Nina! She ended up only paying $0.10 cents for everything pictured above after coupons, doublers and catalinas! She did four transactions (most stores will let you do at least three, but check with the cashier beforehand). You can only use three doublers were transaction – that’s the reason for multiple transactions.
Here’s a breakdown of what she bought and how she saved:

Not bad Nina! I’m super impressed and your kiddo is so cute!
