Free & Nearly Free Stuff – With & Without Coupons

I Lo♥e Extreme Savings

(Just Bragging A Little Here, 🙂 )

Yesterday was the last day of the FREE boxes of Fiber One cereals with 25¢ overage on each.  So it was my second trip this week.  I was actually planning on Publix paying me to shop,  but some impulse shopping caused me to dig in to my wallet for a credit card (one that gives cash back for all purchases, of course).  Had I not inspected  the clearance rack at the front of the store, I would not have picked up a $4.50 bag of bird food (saving at least 50%).  The rest of the $14 and change was spent on Boar’s Head products from the Publix Deli counter.  It is very rare that I don’t impulse buy some items, but usually I can manage to find a coupon, or the item is a BOGO.

You only live once.

Coupons Used:

  • 4 Publix Starkist .50/1
  • 21 Publix General Mills cereal from weekly ad $2/1
  • 21 Mfr Fiber One cereal .75/1
  • 3 Publix Green Advanrage $5/2 for Phazyme & Sominex

The rest of the savings was from BOGOs and other sales.  All in all, I am delighted that I am set with cereal for many months to come.  Our pantry already had a bunch of  Kashi cereals and oeatmeal stocked.  Now we have a nice variety.
