A few weeks ago I gave two readers a $50 gift card to the store of their choice.  The only requirement was that they had to report back.  We’ll one report is in and she did amazing.  Her store choice was Publix (would be my choice also) she did her shopping in three trips so scroll down to see the final numbers…  lets just say she saved more than my electricity bill last month!!

Note from Sarah (the winner & shopper):

I’ve almost used all of my $50 now. I have 1.96 left!! I am so proud that I met the goals that I set for myself!!! I had said that I thought I could get $200 worth…so surely I can squeeze in that last 8.06 for only 1.96! Included in these trips I bought meats, cheeses, dairy products & soda’s too, even got some treats for the dogs & a few things I had no q’s for that we just needed.

I really enjoyed seeing how well she did and hope you did too.   Maybe it can be your turn next.
