I didn’t shop at all last week and made up for it this week!  We did a big Publix trip and then grabbed just the freebies at Bi-Lo & CVS.  The Bi-Lo deal is running for a few weeks so you’ve got time to stock up on some random, but fun, freebies.

Let’s start with the free…

Bi-Lo:

We bought Marshmallows, Mac & Cheese and Coffee.  Can’t make a meal out of it I know.

Total Value: $38
Total Spent: $12.16
Got Back: $10 Digital Reward & $4.50 off Catalina offer!

This is part of their lunchbox rewards deal running this week plus we grabbed community coffee that pairs in great with a catalina deal and high value coupons.

CVS:
