God gives us children for a time

To teach them how to love the Lord,

To train them in His righteous ways,

To follow and obey His Word. —Sper

Have I Told You How Much I LOVE Publix?

I really do!  It is so refreshing to be able to go into the store and have a plan, use my coupons and come out with a cart FULL of groceries for less than $75 each and every week!

Today, I was able to purchase $215.51 worth of groceries for $73.61.  Can you believe that? 

My big savings this week was on some Listerene purchases.  I was able to get 2 bottles of Listerene, 1 Liter size, that also had a 16 oz bottle attached for $0.50 each!  Very amazing! 

Another great deal was the Lunchables.  I was able to purchase three of the sandwich ones (without drink) for $0.50 each

Glade plug in refills (twin packs) were also a great deal this week, I was able to purchase 2 twin packs for $1.99 each.  These are normally around $5.50 each, so great savings! 

And my last super deal was the Frito Lay classic variety pack.  This pack contains 22 bags of single-serve size chips in various flavors.  The regular price is about $9, but I was able to get them on sale, with a manufacturer and competitor coupon for only $4.49!  That's about $0.20 each bag!  Great for school lunches coming up!

So, if I pair a lunchable sandwich with a bag of chips and one of the Honest Kids juice pouches I got for FREE, I have a lunch for $0.70!  WOW!

All thanks for Frugal Fun and Fortune and I Heart Publix.  Matching up coupons to sale items is the way to go!  If you haven't checked them out yet, what are you waiting for?

Can You Really Get FREE Stuff?

Right now, through Sunday, check out our local Hagan Ace Hardware for FREE printer ink refills!!

Seriously!  I took my printer cartridge down to my Ace Hardware handed it over to them and a few hours later received a call that my cartridge was ready.  When I went to pick it up, they scanned it at the counter and said that was all, no payment needed! 

I believe this is something they've just started doing, so it is a promotion to make everyone aware that they are now doing it.

I've already tried out my refill and it works great!  I was amazed that they refill my ink cartridge, some of the other local stores do not.

YES!!!  You really can get FREE stuff!

Want the Good News or the Bad News First?

Let's start with the bad news so we have something to look forward to! 

Bad News:  I went over my grocery budget this week, but especially over for this half of the month!  By about $40.  Yikes!  In my mind, I can justify it because we used up most of our stock piles before vacation, then used some of our grocery budget last month towards "vacation eating out."  So, now we are building up our stock piles again.  That is probably the hardest part about couponing, building up your supplies. 

Good News:  I saved over $100 at Publix today!!  Mostly due to store sales, but I was able to accumulate over $30 in coupons.  Very good effort today!!

Tell me about your savings, leave a comment below!

Not feeling the best lately.  No motivation.  Extremely tired. 

Also, not sure if I'll finish the 1950's Housewife Challenge blogs.  If you want to see the remaining posts, let me know.  Otherwise, I'll skip it and start posting again after school starts.
