I have unpacked boxes until my fingers bled this week.  The joyful side of that is realizing how much we have blessed with, the truthful side is that we pack rats and need to seriously declutter our lives.  The pantry was the last thing I packed and the first thing I unpacked.  As I reorganized everything I realized that we still have 8 bottles of BBQ sauce, 7 bottles of mustard, 8 boxes of cereal, and worst of all in my opinion 9 boxes of pancake mix.  To make pancake matters worse a box arrive today from Hungry Jack in preparation for a giveaway we will run in a week.  I think the next few weeks for us will be a lot like a scene from Forest Gump as we have pancake everything.  Pancake fried chicken, pancake donuts…

I did go shopping this week on top of all the unpacking.  I hit Bi-Lo on Valentine’s Eve.  We got things for a birthday party we hope to have tomorrow if the weather behaves, and lots of produce.  I also stocked up on orange juice, eggs, milk, and bread.  I’m in love with the Pepperidge Farm Simply bread and it is B1G1 right now, so my night was made!

Total before sales and coupons: $215.58
Total spent: $97.56
Total saved: $118.02 or 55%

This was a very B1G1 heavy trip, so that gets you 50% savings even before coupons.  Plus I used a $5 off $20 Publix coupon that came in my post office moving kit.

      Will bilo take dollar general and Fred’s and other competitive store coupons for 5 off of $25?

      • wowformisty

        Mine takes them. They accept 1 for every $25 you spend. Good luck, each BiLo seems to vary greatly with what they will and will not accept.

      Add hot sauce to the pancake mix (after mixing it up with water or whatever), cover small chicken strip breast meat with the mixture, and fry. You will have buffalo chicken strips! Dip in ranch dressing.

      • That sounds great! I have at least 5 bottles of Franks Red Hot…

      My family loves it when I dip onions in the pancake mix to make homemade onion rings.

      Thank you Jenny for all that you do! (even while moving) I had a great week at Publix: I stocked up on Kleenex, pasta, tomato paste… other things I’m forgetting, but mainly I got $25 worth of good stuff for $8.50. Yay! We love you, Jenny. Your site is definitely unique: I tried to find one just as amazing for my sister who lives in MD, but could not find one that measures up to yours.

      Make pancakes or waffles and freeze them for easy breakfasts…just pop them in the toaster oven and whaa-la! Much better than Eggos!!
