Before I go into our savings, I have some exciting news!  Next week I get be a guest on FabLife a daytime talk show hosted by Tyra Banks and Chrissy Teagan.  I found out yesterday so it’s kinda a last minute whirlwind but I have a feeling that’s normal for them. We are taping next week in L.A.!!  With all the excitement my husband and I decided a splurge was in order and for the first time in two years I got a professional haircut.  (To save money my husband cuts my hair and has for years.)  As soon as I know when the show airs I share the details with you!!

For our savings (to help make up for the non-budgetted salon visit) I went Publix and Bi-Lo for shopping.  Technically we only bought 4 things at Bi-Lo and two of them weren’t for us… but we did go there and shop.

First Bi-Lo since it’s short and sweet.

I went to look for unadvertised deals and left with two deals that I loved.  First was free Peter Pan Simply Ground Peanut Butter and the other was clearance Luvs diapers.   You’ll find the coupons needed for both deals in the Bi-Lo unadvertised list of deals.

luvs diaper clearance

The Luvs diapers are 50% off, plus we have a Publix store coupon this week for $3/2 and current manufacturer coupons.  I also had another $5 off $30 purchase coupon.  We don’t need size 6 diapers (never have with any of our girls) but our pastor’s wife does.  This is a super easy deal to bless someone with!

Total Value Purchased: $57
Total Spent: $17
Total Saved: $40

That means we paid less than the regular price of one pack of diapers for both plus some peanut butter!  We also got 10¢ off per gallon of gas in fuelperks.

For Publix I went with a friend to help teach her how to do this couponing thing.  It was a treat because I had her cut all the coupons!  You can see my shopping list here.  Our trip went great, but I think just being organized is the key there.  It really isn’t overwhelming or stressful when you walk in with a shopping list and know and the plan!

Total Value Purchased: $118.51
Total Spent: $37.75
Total Saved: $80.76

      LOVE your hair, and congrats on the show! I just set my DVR. Do you know which day you’re going to be on?

      Congratulations on getting to be a guest on a nationally broadcast TV show. That is so exciting, you must be nervous. I have had my guy cut my hair for me to not only save money, but to save me from the bad haircuts I always seemed to have gotten at the salon. So if I was getting my hair done for the show, I think they have makeup and hair people that do it for you on the set, having someone else near my hair with the shears would terrify me more than going on TV.
