Stock-Up Saturday

Good Morning everyone! Hope your weekend is off to a great start too.

Emily and I were out the door early this morning to take advantage of some sales at Publix. We stocked on up some things for breakfast and lunch, as well as some household items and toiletries.

We spent $35.04 (including tax), and saved $92.53. The diapers alone were originally priced at 19.99 a box.

Better yet, Kimberly-Clark is running a January promo. Since I purchased $35.00 worth of Kimberly-Clark products (pre-coupons), I submitted my receipt to get a $10.00 Publix gift card back. So my readers in the Southeast, it's a good time to stock up your pantry.


The produce selection was hurting at Publix today, so we hit Kroger on our way home to finish up our shopping. We also got other fresh items like milk, cheese, yogurt, and the ingredients for a new recipe I'm excited to try.

If you want to check back later, I'll be posting the recipe for Rosemary and Olive Oil Cake with Chocolate Chunks. I paid almost $8 for the little bag of spelt flour needed for the recipe, so it better be as tasty as the magazine claims. I'm intrigued by the sound of it. We'll see!

  1. I am so impressed with your savings. I need to take lessons from you. I love to shop sales and coupon clip but I have yet to learn how to shop like that. Way to go!

  2. Amazing! I might save like $20 on a trip to the store... but not $92. Do you get coupons online, or do you just get them from newpapers and ads? Way to stock up. I just stocked up on some BOGO chicken. :)

  3. I buy two double-coupon editions of the Sunday paper each week and print a bunch online too. These are some of my favorite online sources.

    It's *possible* that I've become crazy coupon lady. I have a file bin at home dedicated to fliers and coupons. It can be a little time consuming. I probably spend about an hour each weekend clipping and organizing. The savings are still greater than what my hourly rate would be at work, so I justify the time that way :)

  4. Wow! That's awesome! I'm by no means a couponer. By that I mean that I don't use them at all or even read the circular that comes in the mail. Now you have me wondering if I should pay more attention to it!
