I had a short, quick trip to Bi-Lo this week. I really didn't need anything but tea, but grabbed a couple of other things while I was there. It's funny, my family actually prefers the cheaper tea, so I picked up the Lipton for someone else. This is what I bought.

2 Clear Value Tea Bags @ 2/$1.96
2 Lipton Tea Bags @ 4¢ overage
1 Idahoan Potatoes @ FREE
4 Mahatma Rice @ 4/26¢
2 Birds Eye Frozen Veggies (not pictured) @ 58¢

The total value of what I bought before any sales or coupons was $17.55. The total that I paid was $2.76. I saved $14.79 or 84%.


This week's trip to Publix was really great! I got some really great deals and stocked up on beverages. This is what I bought.

4 Hawaiian Punch @ 4/$3
4 Welch's Juice Blends @ 2/$3.38
6 Hamburger/Chicken Helper @ 6/$4.29
2 Paul Newman Salsa @ 2/$2
2 Hunts Ketchup @ 2/$1.31
2 Quaker Granola Bars @ 2/$1.29
1 Nivea Face Balm @ 37¢
2 Nivea Shave Gel @ 2/88¢
2 Tombstone Pizza @ 2/$3.99
1 Duncan Hines Frosting Starter @ 89¢
1 Duncan Hines Frosting Flavor @ 1¢ overage
4 Ronzoni Pasta @ 4/98¢

The total retail value before any sales or coupons was $78.11. The total that I paid was $22.37. I saved $55.74 or 71%.

I had a really awesome trip to Publix this week, especially thanks to a great BOGO Publix coupon that I found on Fanta, which were already on sale B2G1. 3 coupons entitled me to get six 12-packs for the price of one. I only had one problem, which was resolved quite easily. When I looked at my receipt, I realized that my two 2.50 off Alexia coupons had not been scanned. A trip to customer service took care of that, and I was refunded $5 in cash. Here is what I bought.

6 Fanta 12-packs
4 Knorr Pasta Sides
2 Kraft Fresh Take
20 Sheba Cat Food cans
4 Velveeta Casseroles
2 Welch's Fruit Snacks
2 Sunlight Dishwasher Gels 32ct
2 Sunlight Liquid
1 Alka Seltzer Cold
1 Alka Seltzer Sinus
2 Alexia Fries (not pictured)
2 Friskies Cat Food bags
1 Snausages Dog Treats

The total before any sales and coupons was $122.24 before tax. The amount that I paid was $15.66 before tax. I saved $106.58 or 87%.

I don't know if this deal is available in all areas, but I found it in my store today. Publix has Coke Products 12-packs B2G1 at $5.49 each. I found BOGO stickers on 12-packs of Fanta, which is a Coke Product. So... I bought 6 12-packs. The store sale deducted 2 of them. Then I used 3 BOGO coupons, making 3 more of them free. So I paid $5.49 for six 12-packs of Fanta drinks!

If there is one flavor that I like almost as much as chocolate, it has to be caramel. And when you put the two together, it is utterly awesome. Well, today is National Caramel Day, and to celebrate the folks at Marzetti have issued an awesome coupon. Being on their email list, I just received a link to a coupon for $2 off of any Marzetti Caramel dip. Go HERE to print yours. I was able to print two coupons, which means I won't have to choose between flavors. I will, however, hold onto them for a couple of weeks to see if anyone puts them on, to make it an even better value. They also recently issued a $1.50 off one coupon that can be printed HERE.
