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.

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
