So, personally, I use a lot of different blogs/websites for my couponing enjoyment. Some of those being...

Southern Savers
Clippin' with Carie

Totally Target
I Heart Publix
I Heart Saving Money

...along with,, and which all have wonderful coupons that most of these sites will eventually lead you to.

This weekend I had the biggest savings trip of my life!!! :) It was wonderful, and yes, I did buy things that I needed. Because that's what I always hear. "You're spending more money than you would need to." "You wouldn't buy that without a coupon." "I don't know what I'm talking about, but I want people to think I do." Haha...they don't actually say that last one, but it's what they're doing. :) "They" being that group of people who uses these excuses to keep from couponing.

To prove that I shop with a purpose, I am going to break down my recent Publix trip and show what I got and how much I saved.

What I got:

1 box of Capri Sun (for Raymond, he wanted it)

1 Clorox toilet bowl cleaner (I was all out!)

2 Green Giant valley fresh steamers

1 bag of Tyson boneless chicken tenderloins

1 Jose Ole breakfast burrito

2 Aunt Jemima's microwave breakfasts

2 Degree deodorants (for Raymond)

2 Mott's Medley juice

2 Hillshire Farms smoked sausage

2 Betty Crocker fruit snacks (gushers, fruit roll up and fruit by the foot combo box!)

2 bags of Seneca apple chips

2 Marie Callender's fresh steamers

2 Cole's garlic loaves

1 2.5 lb bag of Idaho potatoes

5 boxes of Mueller pasta

2 Bertolli pasta sauce

1 4-pack of Green Giant green beans

1 Febreeze set&fresh (Meadow and Rain-my apt smells so good!!!)

How much I saved (and how much I spent):

That would be a grand total of $24.11 spent and $65.86 NOT spent.

I love coupons.

You can find all these deals on Here's a link for this particular week of Publix deals. It's not too can go tonight or anytime tomorrow and still get these deals...if you live close to a Publix.

I'll keep you guys updated on more coupons and trips, but for now, take a look at this gorgeous African Violet growing on my porch!!! (and I've had it over a year, so I'm doing good!)

Want some SWAG???

What does SWAG even stand for? I have no idea, but if I had to guess I would say....Sweet White Alligator Goggles. Yeah...SWAG! And when I say "alligator goggles", I mean goggles that an alligator is wearing, not a person wearing goggles made out of an alligator! Why would a person do that??!

Apparently, swag is a verb in Australia. It means
to travel about carrying one's bundle of personal belongings. Thank you,

The reason I bring up SWAG is because the word Swag has been on my computer screen everyday for the last couple days. I've been using the search engine on and have been earning some points!!! When you sign up with Swag Bucks you get a chance to earn points every time you search using their search engine. Sure, you don't win every time, but sometimes! And when you get enough points you can get free stuff...all for sitting on you butt and playing on the computer! AMAZING!!!

Click on the banner below to start earning points for yourself! When you get enough points to get something for free you should let me know. I like knowing when people get free stuff!

Search & Win

I'll be posting more sites and opportunities to win free stuff later on so keep your eyes open! Happy winning!...and being lazy!
