Bi-lo shopping trip picture

I thought I would take a few minutes before my big FSU game starts tonight to share how we did at Bi-Lo today.  I’m quite pleased!

My goal on every trip is to save at least 50-60%, it’s not to leave the store only paying $1.  If that were my goal, my family would hate me, the store would despise me and well we would go hungry.  I want none of that to happen, so we are on the more moderate side of “extreme couponing”.

This trip included a number of competitor coupons, which is one reason I LOVE Bi-Lo.  They take almost every store in town’s coupons, even the drugstores.  Today they also took the Aldi $10 off coupon.

I thought I make it easy on you and pull exactly the deals I did from both the Bi-Lo Weekly ad list and the Bi-Lo Unadvertised Deals.  Remember you can make just one a shopping list from each list combined, and you should always look at both lists!!

My Totals for Today:

Before sales and coupons: $214.70
Total Spent in the Store: $$68.07

I’ll get back $6.15 from SavingStar and submitted for $2.75 from Ibotta.

Total after amounts back: $59.16
Total Saved: $155.54 or 72.4%

I also earned 40¢ in Fuelperks off my next 20 gallons = $8 saved!  That puts the whole trip right at our weekly budget of $50.  This will easily make this weeks meals of BBQ Pork, Chili, Chicken & Rice, Chicken Noodle Soup, Pork Chops & Mashed Potatoes and cake… lots and lots of cake.  Not really, the cake just goes in the stockpile and we are set for the next birthday.

    • Susie

      I love BiLo, it’s my favorite couponing store for groceries. I have $1.27 in fuel perks right now. That brings gas down to under $2 a gallon as well as all the good coupon deals.

    • Jen Beaver

      well done! You are so inspiring… And your tutorial videos are so funny! Jennifer

    • tiffany

      where did u get the Aldi coupon?

      • susan

        Look on the right hand side, under latest articles, and go to the next page. There will be an article with a link to the Aldi’s coupon

    • Lrwaabc

      Jenny, I’ve read before that your husband is gluten-free; how in the world do your keep your weekly grocery budget at $50 if he can’t eat gluten? Since we found out my daughter can’t eat gluten (not a choice–it makes her very sick), our grocery bill is definitely higher.

      • We don’t really do any bread in meals and eat pretty simple meals: a meat, starch and veggie. Staying simple keeps it a lot cheaper and less stressful on me worrying about hidden gluten.

    • Crystal

      Great Job!! My Bi-Lo store today would not take the $10.00 ALDI coupon. They said they no longer take any $ off $$ coupons anymore. :(

      • pdnr

        Mine won’t either. I was also denied using a $ off produce or $ off meat competitor coupon because I was told it was not specific enough but after talking to the manager, they changed that policy and will now accept those but not $ off total $$ coupons such as the Aldi one.

    • lshtm

      You shop like me girl…….. can’t wait to meet you in person Thursday !!!!! So very glad I stumbled across your site !!!!

    • Jen

      Hey Jenny! I’m a FSU alum – go Noles!

      Jenny My husband says i can no longer use your site if your a Noles Fan

      • Hopefully he can look past our differences and at least let you save some money :)

        • Daisy ‘Cabrera’ Argudin

          Im sure if you post an amazing deal on UM gear he will forgive you.

        • momof3

          mine will be so happy you are!

    • Tracie

      I am trying to find the Right Guard on Saving Star. Can you help me please?

    • Tabitha Williamson

      Jenny please clarify the competitor coupon rule! I having trouble with it! The corporate policy say up to 10 competitor coupons per household per day. I keep fighting with my store and they are telling me it’s up to $10 worth of competitor coupons per day! Please clarify???

      • There is definitely no value limit, just quantity of coupons. Many stores will also limit one competitor per offer (so only one Walgreens $3 off etc.) My total competitor today was around $17-$18 if I remember correctly, but I was under the 10 limit.

        • Tabitha Williamson

          How do I fix this? I even showed her on the posted corp. coupon policy that is posted in the store. And she still refused, bc she said that’s what her manager has told her to do. Thinking of calling corp!!!

    • Crystal Feaster

      Theres a $4.00/1 huggies coupon in Walgreens November Coupon book thought someone might want to know :)

    • cynthia

      Thank you so very much for all your hard work…..my husband got laid off, and we have been struggling financially, I have been blessed with this website……..thank you again!

    • jj

      there are no bi-lo’s in atlanta area. :(

    • jb

      With the P & G rebate do you have to spend $50.00 or is that you get up to $50.00 minus coupons ?

    • Jenn

      /Jenny – you mentioned an .85/1 mfr coupon for the Betty Crocker Cake mix – I am not seeing it on your list – can you explain the math on this one please?

    • Becky

      Hi Jenny, Im confused on the degree clinical.. You mentioned using one ecoupon, one target coupon and one mq, making it $1.49.. The mq is 2.50/2.. not quiet understanding the math or how it could be used on just 1 deoderant.

      • Becky

        Sorry.. I should have read the coupon better.. :)

    • Sam

      Jenny, I bought the 8 o’clock coffee and tresemme heat spray. I tried to scan it in on my ibotta account and it told me that the item didn’t match. The items are exactly as pictured. Any thoughts on what to do?

    • Dee

      I remember the day when Publix was the store to shop..Bi-Lo has really stepped it up with their acceptance of competitor coupons..hope it continues…love Bi-Lo right now…

    • Cynthia

      I am new at this couponing can someone explain to me this savingstar thing? I do not understand what you are talking about on it. Thanks

    • Tracie Easterling

      is there anything wrong with the link to coupons.com page or maybe just my computer. just checking

    • Shawna Fisher Leet

      Go Noles :)
