I am so excited about this trip because I saved a lot for what little groceries I had. I would have saved even more if I would have been keeping up with the Sunday coupons, but ever since I went home for the holidays I got out of my coupon groove. But, I’m getting back into it now. Here’s a picture of  $74.66 worth of groceries that I got for only $28.52!!!!!! That’s $46.14 in savings! Wooohooo! Check it out:

6 months ago I would have never thought that buying NAME brands could save me so much money. I used to always buy store brands and thought I was doing good. I am very proud of myself for this trip…it, honestly, was just a last minute trip because I needed coffee but I couldn’t pass up some of the deals and coupons I matched. I LOVE www.southernsavers.com and if you want to learn more about couponing, you should go there. She is great! She even does coupon workshops. Ok, I’m elated so I’m gonna go play with my daughter!



My 1st Local Harvest delivery

One word to sum it up…disappointed. My box costed $19.50 and inside it was: 1 cucumber, 2 bananas, half romaine head, 2 pears, about 1/2 lb green beans, 7-8 small potatoes, pint of strawberries, and a pint of cherry tomatoes. Granted, it is all organic…but, I still don’t think it was a bang for my buck. I guess I had to give it a try but I don’t think I’ll be doing it again. I do better shopping at Publix with my coupons…speaking of…

I was happy to save $23.34 with my coupons! Only spent $60…and had a $5 off Rite Aid coupon and a $5 off CVS coupon. I really love it when I have a $5 off Kroger coupon and a $5 Walgreens coupon. That happened to me once and it’s an immediate $20 worth off my total! Love Publix!
