We had a wonderful day of shopping today.  I got brave and went to 3 stores this afternoon during what should have been nap time.  No naps for us though, and everyone did great.  Don’t worry I know it was a fluke and I won’t make a habit of it.

Tips from this weeks trip:

  • Grabbed an extra ham to stock up at Easter prices (lowest price until the next “family” holiday)
  • Bought 4 Wheat Thins, using (2) B1G1 and (2) -.55/1 coupons — Always remember that a B1G1 coupon is really a coupon off one item and the other item is still full store price and can have another coupon used.
  • Used a coupon found in a Publix flyer at Bi-Lo because it was a manufacturers coupon — don’t let the words “Redeem at” scare you.  If it is a manufacturers coupon use it where you want to!
  • Redeemed a raincheck for the skillet meals.  When I got the raincheck I told customer service that I had a coupon that would expire before they were restocked — they wrote okay to use expired coupons on the raincheck!!  Made the meals $1.50 ea instead of $7.99 ea. (I love Publix.)
