Ok so before I head to HEB I make sure I have my list ready with all coupons, giftcards, and catalinas I have.
I check the weekly ad for deals that I may have coupons for and even if I don't and they are still a good deal I will take.
I will usually pay close attention to all the B Savings Coupons hanging on the isle next to the items.
It takes me about 3-4 hours for a good savings trip planned out.
MQ means Manufacturer's Coupon and these are the coupons from the newspaper. You can see when and which insert these coupons came out on here.
I did 3 transactions on this trip because I had 3 $5 Catalinas from a previous deal HEB had from last month. You cannot use them in one transactions so that is why I split my purchase into 3.
I got these Valentine's Candy Boxes and used the $3 off $8 coupon that HEB had available if you are signed up to their weekly email newsletter. If you are not signed up yet, you can do so here.
Here is the coupon for this deal.
The big candies were $4ea. so $8 total minus the $3= $5 for both
and then the small candies were $1 at 8 = $8-$3coupon=$5 for all 8
I used 2 printable coupons.
I also got a good deal on the meat and seafood section and I used the printable coupon HEB has available until Friday 2/14 of $3off $15 Seafood or Meat Purchase

Make sure at checkout that you have all coupons in order so that you won't make your checkout longer. I had a not so patient cashier but as always was nice to him and at the end Thanked Him for being so patient with me and asked him to give me a card to comment on his patience to corporate. He was pleased.
If you want to save how I saved I highly encourage you to start buying the newspaper on Sunday's and go to coupons.com for monthly coupons.
