Clippin' with Carie
I Heart Publix
I Heart Saving Money
...along with coupons.com, redplum.com, and smartsource.com 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!!!)
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 Southernsavers.com. Here's a link for this particular week of Publix deals. It's not too late...you 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!)
