Publix Savings – 66.9%

May 17, 2009


I was excited to see the Publix sales this week!  We could really use a few new Aim-N-Flames.  The only one we own (that I got at the Dollar Tree) always seems to end up in my craft room.  I use it to heat seal the ends of  hair bows that I make, so anytime my husband is ready to light the grill, I have to search through the mess to find it.  For $0.75 each we can keep one upstairs in the craft room and one downstairs in the kitchen, it’s perfect!!  I was also interested to see if my Publix would take a manufacturer’s coupon and a Target coupon for the Kraft Cheese.  They always take CVS and Kroger coupons as competitors, but they’ve been a little iffy about taking Target ones.  Well, this shopping trip, I’m happy to report, that they took the Target coupon with no questions asked!  Here is what I got:

(2) Mott’s Apple Juice – On sale 2/ $2.95, Final Price:  $1.48 each

Great Kroger Deals This Week

April 20, 2009

Thanks so much to The Thrifty Mama for posting about two great deals at Kroger this week:

Free Angel Soft Toilet Paper – YEAH!!  I was so sad when Kroger stopped carrying the 4-pack Cottonelle that was FREE after $0.50 off coupons were doubled.  This is only this week though……. 

Cheap Barilla Pasta

Sometimes I get so focused on the Publix deals that I miss some awesome deals at other stores…. – 70% off

April 15, 2009 is 70% off until 4/20!  Check out Fiddledeedee! or Southern Savers for the details….

I was super excited to see that my husband’s favorite local pizza place was just added!  I can get a $10 gift certificate for $0.90!  To use the certificate it requires a $20 purchase and an added 18% gratuity.  If we plan our meal just right, we can get $23.60 of food and service for only $14.50.  That’s a savings of 38%!

Teaming Up, Southern Style!

March 2, 2009

Jenny at Southern Saversannounced a new partnership with Christy at Southern Plate today.  The recipes that Jenny and Christy are featuring today cracked me up!!  How did they know that our refrigerator veggie drawer looks like this?!?!?!?   


I’m looking forward to trying the Boston Creme Pies!

Kroger Sales

January 20, 2009

I don’t usually save as much during my shopping trips to Kroger as I do at Publix.  This may just be the week to break that streak. 

Check out all these great deals at Kroger listed out over at Southern Savers!

I am totally going to take Jenny’s advice and copy her list into Word to edit it into my very own shopping list.  I have had great luck with the Kroger ShortCuts and P&G loadable coupons.  Cellfire on the other hand?  No way.  I’m in the process of scanning my receipt and UPC to e-mail them to get $1 back that didn’t work!  What a hassle.  This was the 3rd time a coupon didn’t work like it was supposed to.  I decided this time I was calling them on it.  I’ll keep you posted.  (Wow, that was a tangent…)

If you end up at Kroger this week and you get some good deals, report back and let me know!
