1st Try: January 10th :)

So, one BIG tip I forgot to add to my original post:
GET THE WEEKLY ADD ON PUBLIX.COM each week on Wednedsay.

Plan your weekly meals around what is on sale, ONLY WHAT IS ON SALE.

My first Publix run was tonight. Before coupons from the paper, online, B1G1's, their sales, stacking, and stocking techniques, my bill was: $180.00

After utilizing all of my lessons learned my total bill was: $127.60!
That's a savings of approximately: $53.00!!!!

Not too shabby for my first go-round.


  1. I saw your link on Facebook and, since I'm a blogging addict ('s not healthy) I had to come check it out. I'm going to need to take serious lessons from you. I've been trying to do this same thing for awhile now, but I don't feel like I've really made any progress. I save a small percentage every week, but nothing like what I know is possible. =/ Bring on the tips. I'll be reading.

  2. i'm so overwhelmed and yet intrigued by this art of couponing. :) i'm sure if my job allowed "nemo" breaks here and there, and the convenience of a home computer and printer, i'd be down for the effort it would take to get things rolling. :) sounds like a task for my summer break!
    i admire your multi-tasking skills-- through it all, you remain beautiful, love your family, love your Jesus, and keep a business running with creativity that's on the edge of its seat. :)

  3. thanks ladies. i know it's been a while, but i should be able to update soon :)
