FIVE Multi Grain Cheerio Coupons!

Wow! There are a ton of great coupons out right now. I am sorting through them now. Remember you do not want to print everything right away. Most coupons will expire within 30 days of printing so the longer you can wait the better. However, there are some HOT coupons that you do want to print asap because they will reach print quantity limits quickly and disappear. I will highlight the ones I consider HOT in my next post...for now, I LOVE this one!!!

5 $1/1 Multi Grain Cheerio Coupons! One coupon delivered to your inbox for 5 weeks.

My Publix Savings 3/3

So what can I say--but these are maintenance mode trips. So long are the days of the overflowing buggy. We have plenty and I will not just buy something because it is a great deal. We have to need it....and right now we just need the essentials(milk, bread, fresh veggies)...Since I was purchasing milk and the Nabisco coupon was expiring within the next day or two I decided to get the cookies too. Made the munchkins happy. I did stop by yesterday and get 3 packs of Fiber One yogurt for $1.71 total (will get tacked onto my weekly total).
Glad to hear that many of you that joined us within the past couple of months are reaching maintenance mode. Woohoo!

No overage and no Register Rewards used in this trip. For $10, I think this is a good trip! The ground turkey and cat litter alone would have been $12!

Publix Sneak Peek ad starting 3/3!

Publix Sneak Peek HERE (starting 3/3).

(Complete ads & match ups will be posted shortly.)

Keep in mind that the sneak peek prices will be slightly different from our local prices (by a couple of cents). Check the paper ad or to get exact local pricing.

Reminders about our local store policies:
The key to the game is buying the sale items. The BEST deals are the B1G1s. My list is mostly B1G1, essential items and sale items. I buy fruits/veggies/meats that are on sale that week. These sale items are already GREAT deals--Add coupons and they are AWESOME buys!

Locals(the following applies to Fairhope and Orange Beach locations):
*Our local Publix ads usually run Wednesday-Tuesday. Holiday ads vary.
*Sneak Peeks are always subject to change.
*Our local prices will usually vary by a couple of cents from Sneak Peek ads.
*NO Food Lion, Harvey's, Dollar Store, etc... coupons accepted at our local stores.
*Manufacturer coupons & store coupons (local grocery/drugstores/Target/Publix) accepted at the Publix in Fairhope and Orange Beach.
*One $/$$ coupon per visit per day at Fairhope location as long as your order total qualifies before coupons. Orange Beach is accepting one Publix $/$$ and one competitor $/$$ per person per day.
You can find a list of $/$$ here. Always hand these to the cashier first.
*No doubling of coupons or penny items at the Fairhope/Orange Beach stores.
*You do not have to buy 2 of the B1G1s to get the sale price. They ring up 1/2 price and 1/2 price at our local stores.
*ONE Manufacturer + ONE store coupon = ONE item.
*No Price Matching at Publix. No Price matching coupons.
Read more here.
*NO CVS Extra Care Bucks...ONLY Walgreen's Register Rewards. You can use Walgreen's Register Rewards like cash to pay. Always hand these to the cashier last. Fairhope will accept unlimited non expired Register Rewards. Orange Beach is one per retailer.
*Orange Beach shoppers please hand over your coupons to the cashier first as she/he may need to match up.
*Publix stores are NOT required to give overage. Buying trial sizes to obtain major overage is resulting in a review of policies. Stores are aware of which items give overage and reserve the right to refuse allowing excess.
* Publix no longer allows copies of Green and Yellow Advantage flyer coupons. They must be originals.

What are match ups? Available coupons and the source matched up with sales items. BIG time savers!

*Just getting started? Read Publix 101

*Are you in another location? Use the above as a guide to know what to ask your store customer service/manager. Every store is different because each store manager decides on their local coupon policy. You can also send me an email and I will do my best to help you out with your policies.

Buying Coupons!

The BB purchased some coupons this a.m.--B1G1 Purex coupons from Dede. I plan to use them at Walgreen's this week to score FREE detergent because it is B1G1 this week too!!! I paid .40 for each coupon, maximum order was 10. So hopefully, I can get my hands on 20 bottles. If it all works out, I will not need detergent for awhile. You can find a link to Dede's site in the right side bar.

FYI: B1G1 signs are in the stores on the regular Purex liquid detergent.
