We managed to pull off our second week of no shopping except for a quick run to get milk.  I’m amazed at how much milk we go through and I think when we move we should get a cow…

To help cover the cost of the milk I grabbed a few money maker south beach snack bars.  I grabbed two boxes of bars that were a $3 money maker and paid 57¢ for milk in the end!  I feel like at least once a day someone emails to ask how to save on items that don’t have coupons, well looking for things that make money is great way to do it.  We won’t actually eat the South Beach bars, I think they are yucky and for my husband they aren’t gluten free.  So they got donated in a bin at the front door of the store, and we happily walked out with our 57¢ milk.

How did you do this week?  Leave a comment or a link to your savings post.  If you took any pictures use hashtag #SouthernSavers if you share them on instagram and they will show up on our facebook page as well!

      Where were the South Beach bars a money maker this week?

      • I used the nifty sales search tool to figure it out. Believe it was Publix, but ended 1/29. Boo!

          What coupons were used to make it a money maker?

          • There was a $3 printable … it was only available for a few days and expired either yesterday or today. I used the rest of mine today at Wal Mart where the “delights” (chocolate covered sunflower seeds, yum) are priced at 3.98. I don’t have a Publix near me, but it looks like they were BOGO.

            • Jane

              That coupon was only suppose to be used for the snack, meal and smoothies as well as the ready-to-go meals, not for the cereal bars and good-to-go bars that were BOGO at publix.

            • The verbiage on the one I used included the bars … I used it on the whipped peanut butter snack bars last week. It wasn’t a money maker for me, but still a good deal.

          I used the sales search tool too, but came up empty.
          Thank you.:)

      I am glad to hear you were able to get inexpensive milk. I have three kids and they love

      …milk. Finding a way to get a good deal on it would make me feel content, too.
