Super Shopping: Lots of Freebies!

My total for the week (from March 6-13) is $57. Double what I have been spending for the past few weeks. But I will get $5 back for a Rebate and also got $17 RRs! So only $35 after the Rebate and ECBs.

Since I've been paying cash for food purchases, I find myself spending less. My husband thinks it's because it hurts more to give them my dollars and cents knowing I'm not getting it back. He is so right!

I also went to Publix on Thursday but we put all the items away before I could get a picture! My total for that was $8.34 (saved $49.24 or 85%).

On Tuesday, our Publix shopping totaled $20.50 for everything above. We saved $75.50, or 73%

These are all the items bought FREE with coupons!

This was my Target trip Saturday. Everything cost $10.47

The next morning, I stopped by Target again for some staples (Blue Bell Ice Cream for $2.88!) and paid $10.12 for everything. The 30-pack oatmeal was on clearance for $3.48 and I had a $1 Q!

I wanted to share this neat find: Tazo Organic Apple Tea is only $1.78 but some boxes had $1.50 off 2 Qs. It also had a Q that will let you get a Grande (I think) Tazo Tea at Starbucks for only $1.50. My friend and I went shopping together and hunted and hunted for extra peelies. Luckily we found one for each of us!

These are the items I got at Target for FREE plus overage.

On Sunday, I stopped by Wal-Mart and bought these for $9. I asked for extra inserts at Customer Service and they gave me 2!
We saved $8.40 on gas using 4 coupons ($2 off $10 Murphy USA) at the Wal-Mart gas station. Instead of $41.40, we filled up the tank for $33!

At Food World, the paper towels and rice are FREE. I used the FREE Marcal Q from 3.7 SS and Redplum had $0.50 Qs for rice that they doubled, to make the rice free (use zip 90210). Soft Scrub is FREE at Publix this week using Target Q and manuf Q. Use the links at Totally Target to get the Qs.

This Sunday I got these at CVS and paid $0 because I used ECBs, coupons and a CVS money card. BUT, the toothbrushes I picked up were NOT the right ones. So I had to go back and fix it.

I came back, got the right toothbrushes. All these for FREE + $1.50 moneymaker!


  1. I love those Marcal coupons, too! I probably have a six month supply of tissues and paper towels, all of which were free, now because of them.

  2. I have never thought to ask for extra inserts at the customer service desk. That's a great idea, I am hoping it will work at my Walmart :)

  3. It seems to work best early Sunday morning right when they are stocking each register with the drugstore and department store ads. I've also found a stash over at the jewelry cash register.
