Here’s how we did… how did you do?

(post your shopping successes at the bottom of the page in the comments or LiNkY! please link directly to your shopping trip page only)

I was pretty darn happy (and tired) after my Publix shopping trip on 6-6.  I made much of this in one trip but did add a few more to get the full amount of body wash and all that Hellmann’s for the donation box so I’m wiped out after this. After I got home from my trips and took the picture I actually found more Dial coupons so I ran to the closest Publix for a couple of things and then stopped by Dollar Tree for a little frustration to top off the day,  but for the most part this is an entire mornings shopping results! If anyone ever says that couponing is not hard work then they are definitely not an extreme couponer! (but I love it!)

I was a little disappointed that I didn’t get the 50 cent Yakisoba coupon this time (which doubles at my Publix) or I could have knocked down the total a little more but I’m not gonna whine about it… FREE is FREE, right?! My youngest son was thrilled to see all those Yakisoba come home since he just ate the last one recently. (I realize feeding him those does not exactly make me mom of the year but he gets in the pantry and makes them on his own when I’m ignoring him blogging and this shamefully makes me happy Devil)


I can’t wait for hubby to get home.  I’ve been spoiled with all that he does and I’m really feeling it when he’s out of town! (Miss you sweetie!)

Publix Shopping Trip on 5-23

 

  • Deb

    Great deals-I’ll be duplicating most of ‘em! :)
    Printing like a madwoman right this minute :)

    • Mich_TCC

      Awesome, Deb! I hope you got the 50 cent Maruchan coupon for a great moneymaker instead of the one I got this time. (assuming your store doubles). That will help a bunch on reducing your total!

  • Joni Mason

    I always love to see all the deals you got! And, yes couponing is hard work! I can’t imagine how you do it all! Thanks for sharing!

  • Shannon Phillips

    I love to see your deals, but what I love more is your commentary. Always entertaining to read! Thanks for always putting your shopping trips up here!

    • Mich_TCC

      I’m glad you enjoy it, Shannon. I enjoy writing what pops in my head, even if it’s a little “off”. I figure I’m leaving myself open to some negative comment but hey… I just gotta be me. :) I’m sure some read what I write and just shake their heads!

  • Kamaya

    I can’t focus on anything else but the key lime pie….I LOOOOVE that pie so much! They sell it at my dollar tree, so I’m going to pick me up SEVERAL slices for .40 cent each…thank you very much! And I can’t leave without telling you that you did a wonderful job.

  • JMFLORIDA

    GREAT JOB, BUT COUPON HELP.
    I KEEP SEEING PEOPLE USE MULTIPLE TARGET COUPONS IN THEIR SHOPPING TRIP. I WAS WONDERING HOW IT IS BEING ACCOMPLISHED. THE COUPONS SAYS LIMIT ONE COUPON OR OFFER PER GUEST. I WAS TOLD AT MY LOCAL PUBLIX THAT I COULD ONLY USE ONE TARGET COUPON FOR MY ENTIRE SHOPPING TRIP, WHICH I HAD ACTUALLY THOUGHT IT WAS PER SPECIFIED ITEM BUT WAS RECENTLY TOLD DIFFERENT.
    ALSO HOW ARE YOU ABLE TO PRINT MORE THAN 2 BEST MEALS AT HOME COUPONS.
    THANKS.

    • Mich_TCC

      JM, I can understand where this would be confusing and it even seems to be a matter of differing opinion among the couponing community but each store has been given the leeway to make their own policy regarding competitors, right down to which if any they will accept. Since they have already chosen to accept a coupon that is to be used in a competitor store only, they have already gone against the wording on the coupon. In fact, the coupons also state may not exceed value of item but Publix allows the overage if you use a $1 off coupon on a $0.75 item. The policy only states that you can use one store or competitor and one mf coupon per item but does not get into detail about how many per transaction. Bottom line is that the competitor coupon policy is store driven starting from whether they will take them at all. This is the first I’ve heard of a store limiting one competitor coupon for the entire transaction and I’m wondering if that was an error by one employee. You may want to go verify that with customer service at that store or if possible, go to a different Publix store if you have one nearby. I hope that helps.

      The Best Meals coupons from the email allow anywhere from 2 to 4 prints so you may want to try printing more than 2. It will give you a message that you’ve reached you print limit at some point. It also helps to have family and/or friends print theirs for you if they are not using them. Having these additional resources is helpful for any coupons, not just the Best meals coupons so get your family and friends on board and you should be able to work something out for additional coupons when good deals come around!

      • JMFLORIDA

        Thanks for your reply. It helped. Just trying to figure best way to save and all the rules seem to change from time to time only to help make things confusing. My Publix/Target policy just seemed weird to me, hopefully it will be cleared up. Love to see your post/savings, little jealous, wish we were in land of double coupons so my total savings would resemble yours.

    There is a B2G1 free dial body wash coupon on coupons.com to make an even better money maker!

  • Staci

    Let me stated that my Publix is a true BOGO Publix. Dial is BOGO $3.85. Deal: buy 6, use 2 B2G1 MQ & 3 $2/2 TQ. So the B2G1 coupons each take off $3.85. So the 6 Dial body washes become a $2.15 money maker before tax!!

    • Mich_TCC

      Thanks for the scenario Staci. Since I am in the land of half price BOGO’s I tend to forget to get excited about the great opportunities for the true BOGO shoppers when a BxGx coupon pops up! Here… the value of the B2G1 is only the half price of one. I’ve added the coupon in the lists. Thanks for the reminder!

  • Shanel

    I love your blog.Since I started reading your blogs i have really started to save on groceries.Before that I used to only coupon at drug stores.Thanks for all your hard work.

    • Mich_TCC

      Thanks so much for the comment, Shanel! It’s so nice to hear!!

  • Renee S
