Wow, you guys had a LOT to say last week about the new season of Extreme Couponing and last week’s video! I loved reading all your comments and it makes me beyond happy to know that you all are committed to using coupons in a way that is ethical, respectful of others, and nice.
And, speaking of NICE, did y’all see the not one but TWO giveaways I’m doing this week? :-) If you haven’t already, head on over to the LWSL Facebook page for your chance to win your very own Qubie Coupon Organization System just like the one I use (a $49.99) value!
Entering is super easy. Just click on the “GiveAway” link found on the lefthand menu (clicking from here should take you right to that page), then enter your email address. (Just so you know, the email address goes ONLY to me and is used ONLY to notify the winner. I will never sell or share your information.)
That’s it, easy peasy! After you enter, you have the option of sharing the giveaway with your friends. Please do! If a friend you refer happens to win the Qubie system, YOU will win too!
(If you really want a Qubie but don’t want to wait, you can go ahead and order one. If you happen to win the giveaway, Qubie will refund your purchase price. Use coupon code LWSL5OFF to save $5 on your order!)
I will pick & announce a winner on Saturday, September 10th!
And now, on to shopping….My shopping trip this morning was a bit of a letdown, to be perfectly honest. I was strangely excited by the prospect of $0.67 juice boxes–I guess now that I am making school lunches I realize how quickly those items add up–but to my dismay the Minute Maid boxes were not included in the sale. Boo hoo.
Even though I was only buying a few items, I wasn’t paying very close attention at checkout and didn’t realize that some of the potatoes I grabbed weren’t included in the BOGO sale. Luckily I did check my receipt & was able to get it corrected before leaving the store!
Here is what I got:
At Publix I spent $22.64 on $61.50 worth of groceries, a savings of 63%.$5/$25 Purchase Save-a-Lot Competitors Facebook Coupon 5 Pepperidge Farm Goldfish Snack Crackers or Grahams – $1.00 (2) $0.35/1 Pepperidge Farm Goldfish Grahams Printable (NLA) (2) $0.55/1 Pepperidge Farm Goldfish Xtreme Flavor (Peelie) (1) $0.75/1 Pepperidge Farm Goldfish Grahams (Peelie) Final price: $0.49 each (average price) 4 Potato Inspirations Honey Gold Potatoes, 24oz, BOGO @ – $3.99 $0.55/1 Potato Inspirations Facebook Printable Final price: $1.44 each 4 StarKist SeaSations Fish Fillets, BOGO @ – $5.99 (2) $1/2 StarKist SeaSations printable or (RP 08/14/11 R) Final price: $2.49 each 3 Publix Fruit Snacks, assorted varieties, 5.4oz – $1.00 Publix 2% Milk, 1 Gallon-$3.79 Publix Dozen Grade A Eggs-$1.99 * * *
