ATTN: HOUSTON READERS: 50% off @ Randalls

The Randalls Store located at 9503 Jones Road is CLOSING its doors.  They have announced 50% OFF of everything in THAT PARTICULAR store.  NO EXCLUSIONS!!  (thanks to a very special friend for telling me about this!)  This just started at 8am Wednesday.  They said they will be restocking tonight for business tomorrow!

So, as an avid couponer, I had to venture out.  And, I really didn’t want to do it with three kids in tow.  So…..I headed out after they went to sleep tonight.

PREPARATION:

I really didn’t have a chance to prepare.  All I did was load everything I could onto my Randalls card (cellfire & shortcuts).  And, I took all of my hanging file folders of coupons and popped them into a rubbermaid hanging file folder container.  And, off I went!

CRAZINESS:

I arrived to the store and there were no carts to be had.  (PS.  My coupon container weighed about 40 lbs).  I carried it around the store until I finally got smart and asked two nice ladies that were checking out if I could help them to their car so that I would be able to snag their cart when they were finished!

Then, I was ready.  For the craziness!!

For those of you who shopped SUPER DOUBLES……ummmmm…..it was about twice as bad as that…..lines, people……YIKES!

THE PLAN:

As I say, I didn’t have much time to prepare for the event…..so, I went in thinking I would for sure grab what I knew would be FREE:  Nature Valley Nut Clusters ($3.50 catalina deal + printable + cellfire), GLADE Candles (using blinkie coupons for FREE refills and $1.50/1 for FREE candles).

In addition to FREE items, I was also hunting for items that I didn’t have a stockpile of….and ones that I hadn’t been able to score for FREE since I began couponing over a year ago:  Playtex Tampons, Olive Oil, Cooking Spray, to name a few……

NICE PEOPLE:

There were some VERY friendly people I met while I was there.  One informed me of the Catalina deal with the BC Fruit Snacks.   Pairing the $1.50 Catalina deal with my loadable coupons made it a pretty good deal – I wish I would have had my printable coupons for those!

Another reminded me of the 200 Calorie DiGiorno coupon I had printed today! (thanks jane4girls)  That made for FREE pizza!  YIPPEE!

Another ran to get Olive Oil as I clipped coupons when we were getting close to the cashier!

It was so much fun meeting everyone who was shopping!  Such nice people!

FRUGALICIOUS FINDS:

So, here are all my goodies!

It was a great time!  I am glad I ventured out to check it out!

May your day be ‘just frugalicious’!
