Super Shopping Saturday

Well, it's still Friday. But what the hey... I'm on a roll.
I did a lot more grocery shopping this week than I intended. Mostly to stock-up on some items and to get some rebates sent in.

Publix, I love your BOGO sales! But I didn't realize that IHeartPublix and I have different prices (she's in Atlanta where it's cheaper). All the same, still great deals, spent only $22, saved $32! Plus grapefruit is FREE with the drinks. Since this pantry challenge started, mine has been to eat what I buy. So the goal is to finish off all the fruits and veggies before buying more. Waste not, that is my challenge!

Walgreens was a friend to me. Spent $39, got $24 RRs back. I had lots of RRs expiring so it was nice to find deals to use them on. Plus, there's a $10 Rebate that I'm doing too.

CVS- Thanks for letting me branch out in make-up. I've never used Physician's Formula before, much less their organics. Spent $0.14 on all this stuff! Went back for more, of course. These were 75% off (look or the green dots) and then I used my ECBs to cover the rest. I also bought all the SoyJoy I could muster (FREE after ECBs) and made some early Valentine's gifts for some friends in our MOPs group. I called them Mommy-To-Go packs with Dove chocolates, SoyJoys bars, Crystal Light and Folgers Instant Coffee sticks.
I also went to Wal-Mart and price-matched enough produce for the week, spent only $10 there. And I stopped by Winn-Dixie because we were so, so hungry and didn't pack lunch. Bought a $5 sub to split and spent $2 for 4lbs brown rice and got FREE organic products.

  1. Thanks! I just posted at IheartPublix how I didn't feel like I was doing a good job at all like half a second ago! I really needed the encouragement.

  2. Man, I wish we had a CVS. Physician's Formula is THE ONLY make up I can wear. I am allergic to anything else! You will love this make up if you have sensitive skin!

  3. Rite Aid might have these for 75% off too. I hope you have Rite Aid! I'm excited to try it. I normally don't wear make-up but I'm willing to change that.


Love to hear what you think! Leave a little note to let me know you dropped by today.
