This is a fun weekend for us, our youngest is turning 1.  In honor of her (and the guests that come with 1 year old birthdays) we haven’t done much shopping.  I made it to Publix, Kroger, and Walgreens. We have really been living off of our stockpile for the last month or so, and beginning next week it’s time to start restocking.

    • paige

      OK OOP was $69.92 total saved was $125.71. The oop was way to high for me but it was 4 trips this week and last that I am counting. I am ashamed of my self because out of the $69.92 $29.36 + tax was publixs subs we eat them all the time, they are so good! Oh and I bought my husband $11.00 worth of V day stuff. After seeing how much we spend on subs I think I’ll quit, thats a lot of money. The V day stuff is cool though Just once a year.

      So as always thanks Jenny minus v day an subs my oop would have been $29.56

      Our Publix has Viva paper towels by the 8-pack. Can I use eight Viva coupons or am I limited to one?

    • Jenny

      It is considered one item so you can only use one coupon. sorry

    • Rachel W

      Since you are stockpiling next week could you indicate what prices you think are stockpile worthy earlier in the week? I am new to couponing and I just want to know what good prices really look like. An asterisk or something to notate what a good price is would really help me.

      Thank you so much for doing all this work! I really love your site!
