Had an hour to kill

I dropped my son off at preschool and headed over to Albertsons to do a little double couponing. (I know, I'm crazy) Anyhoo, I didn't get the paper the other day and missed out on some doubles, so I was figuring I'd just grab an ad in the store...WRONG they were all out. I happened to see a little booth set up for the newspaper guy to collect subscription orders. He asked if I had all the doubles I needed, I told him I didn't and he gave me a bunch! SWEET! He also hooked me up with a Sunday subscription for only $1/issue...which he said the newstand price is jumping to $2 June 1st I think.

Anyway, I did my shopping as planned--I had to do 2 trips to use the doublers the way I wanted to, but here is what I got:1st transaction:
2-Sweet Baby Rays BBQ sauce 10/$10 2.00

I so want to learn to do this. I'm collecting coupons and trying to figure it all out, but it is a bit overwhelming. Great job!
