Quick Publix and Wal-Mart trips

Right now, I’m in the thick of helping put together a 4th of July celebration for about 500 people. My husband and I are both in headship of various parts of the celebration and it’s catching up with me! The next few days are going to be very busy and very hectic, so I can’t promise much around here until the weekend is over!! I will post what I can, when I can, and I’ll do my best to pick up the pace next week!

First, I went to Publix this morning to get the penny item (tortilla chips) and get a gas card ($50 Shell card for only $40 when you buy $25 worth of groceries before coupons).

Here’s what I got:

Johnson and Johnson non-stick pads x2
Johnson and Johnson first-aid kits x2
Publix tortilla chips
Carefree pads x5
Bayer Advanced x2
Garrity flashlights x2
Reynold’s aluminum foil 75 ft x2
Rotel x2
French’s mustard x2
Goldfish x6

Total before coupons/sales = $57.06
Total after was… FREE plus $.64 profit or 101% savings!!!

The only way I was able to leave with profit was that I got the gas card in the same transaction, so the profit applied to the gas card, making it cheaper than $40! AND the goldfish had $.75/1 peelies on them to make them only $.25 each! I am so pumped about that because my kids love them!!

On our date tonight, my husband and I ran by Wal-Mart (romantic, I know!), and it was the most fun part of the date, or at least the most interesting part! We saw quite a few shoppers that rival the ones shown in THIS video (seriously!) and I got some more freebies before the coupons expired!

Noxzema razors (x8)
Nexcare bandages (x3)

Total before coupons = $18.76
TOTAL AFTER = FREE plus $.24 profit or 101% savings!!
