This week turned into a big week to buy cheese. Not only did I buy string cheese at Publix, I bought shredded cheese and salsa con queso at Bi-Lo. It always makes me happy to stock up on cheese because it goes fast in my house.Of course, I did the Breakfast deal. I purchased 4 boxes of cereal for $10 and got a gallon of milk free. I then used a Publix coupon to get $2 off of orange juice, which, when paired with a manufacturer's coupon, made the juice free, too. So, after coupons I spent just $6 for 4 boxes of cereal, a gallon of milk, and a 59 oz bottle of Trop50 OJ. I also picked up a gallon of store brand juice for just $1.99 after sale and store coupon. I assume it had a coupon on it because the expiration date was just 5 days away.
The total value of my trip was $89.15.
The total that I spent was $29.11.
I saved $60.04 or 67%.
Bi-Lo is still offering the great breakfast deal, so you can still get a free gallon of milk with the purchase off 4 cereals. Unfortunately, the Publix coupon is expired, so you won't be able to get the juice for free.


I don't usually buy much at Ingles, and this week was no exception. But I wanted to take advantage of a couple of really great deals. I made a quick stop to pick up the Clorox and Toaster Strudels.

The total value of what I bought was $17.72
I paid $3.72.
I saved $14.00 or 79%

Also, Savingstar has already credited me $5.96 toward the their $5/$25 purchase promotion. The really great thing about this is that I was credited for the full price, not the sale price. 


I had a really good trip to Publix this week,  stocking up on several favorites. I did buy a couple of things without coupons, but the overage on the flatbread made up for that. This was also my first time using Publix Digital coupons. I have always had paper coupons for what I was buying, but this week I wanted to buy the string cheese and the only coupon available was the digital one. It was really very easy.

The total value of what I bought was $101.20 and I paid $31.58. That's a savings of $69.82 or 69%

Publix just made me very happy. They are now participating in the Savingstar program. For those of you who do not know what Savingstar is, it is a coupon company that gives you money back when you purchase certain items. It is very easy to enroll and participate. Just go to, sign up for a free account, and then list the numbers from each of your store loyalty cards. For Publix, you will have to get a Upromise card, since they don't have a loyalty card. Simply ask for one at Customer Service.

Once you are signed up, you simply choose the offers that you are interested in. When you buy that product at a store using a card that you have registered on Savingstar, the discount will be credited to your online account. Once you reach $5, you can request a payout via Paypal or to your bank account. However, it can take up to 30 days to receive your credit.



Sam's Club has teamed up with General Mills to help provide meals for the hungry. You can help by texting "HUNGER" to  35350. You will receive a text back requesting your zip code. This is to make certain the meals that you help provide will go to your area.

RARE COMBOS COUPON has a new and rare coupon this morning for Combos Snacks. These are one of my favorite snacks when I need "just a little something before dinner." Go HERE to print your coupon for $1/2. I think that the current Publix price is 2/$3, so this would be a really good deal.

I had another great CVS trip this week. I was excited about the Pantene deal because I recently discovered that I am out of hair spray and that is a definite no-no, especially in March and April! And let's not forget the M&M's! Anyone who knows me well, knows that my weakness is M&M peanuts, only these days I alternate them with the peanut butter, anyway, this is what I bought.

2 L'Oreal Advanced Hair Care @ 8.50
   Used $4/2  printable or RP 2/15
6 Pantene Products @ $20
   Used (2) $5/3  P&G 3/01
2 Dry Idea Deodorant @ $6
   Used (2) $2/1  RP 3/01
4 M&M's @ $12 (2 different deals)
   Used (2) $1/2 printable CVS coupon (no longer available)
1 Reese's Easter Egg

I had to do 2 separate transactions because CVS does not allow 2 identical store coupons in the same transaction.

Total retail value was $73.26
ECBs used was $24.60 (including $5 Beauty club ECB that I received that day)
Cash paid was $2.77
ECBs received $14.87
Total spent was $7.50.

I do not include the beauty club ECB in money spent because it is one of those "little extras" that CVS gives me for being a loyal customer. And after these purchases, I'm well on my way to receiving another one. I received a 20% off coupon in my email this week.

CVS currently has a really great deal on L'Oreal Advanced Hair Care products. The 12.6 ounce bottles are prices at 2/$8.50, and with the purchase of 2, you will receive a $4 ECB. Use the coupon for $4/2 that was in the RP 2/15 to bring the price down to just .50 plus tax for both bottles. That's an awesome price for a quality product. This deal ends on 3/07.

Right now you can get the Transformers movie for free on Google Play. The regular price of this is $17.99, so this is quite a deal. I don't know how long this deal will last, so you'd better grab it now.

I was on and noticed some great new store coupons. Go HERE to print these coupons:

$1/2 M&M's 9 oz or larger.
$1/2 participating Dove, Simple, or Vaseline Skin Products
$1 off one Huggies Product
$1 off one Pull-Ups
$2 off $10 in Poise Products

Remember, these are store coupons and can be used in addition to manufacturer's coupons.

The M&M's coupon will pair nicely with the one that was in this past Sunday's Red Plum to make this deal at CVS this week.

$2 ECBs wyb 2 M&M's candy 9.9-12.6 oz bags at $3.

2 M&M's @ $3 = $6
-$1/2 Mars M&M, Snickers, Twix, 3 Musketeers, Milky Way, Dove Chocolate, Unwrapped Bites, 6 oz +, RP 3/01
-1/2 M&M's CVS coupon

You pay $4 & receive $2 ECBs
That makes them $1 per bag.

I do not usually take a picture and post all of my purchases together, but I feel so good about today's trip, that I just had to see it all together. I'm not going to go into details. This trip had more meat than usual, including 2 boxes of popcorn shrimp, 6 bags of meatballs, 1 tray of large meatballs, and 2 packs of premium lunch meat. It also included 9 single-serve entrees. The total retail value was $191.91 and I paid just $48.75. That's a savings of $143.66 or 75%. That's better than my average savings. I will post separate stores and savings later.
