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!

Order Total: $14.89 ($9.98 after $5 rebate)
Tax: $2.57
Grand Total: $17. 46

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.

March Coupon Class OPEN!

We have added another evening class to our schedule for March. Two classes are still open for registration. You can click on the links below if you wish to register. Both of these classes are in Mobile.

The Couponing 101 Workshop provides participants with everything they need to know to get started with strategic couponing including:

*Couponing Basics (includes terminology, finding coupons, organizing coupons, and more) This is the foundation.
*Publix 101
*Local Grocery Store Policies, including Target and WalMart
*Drugstores 101: CVS, Walgreens, Rite Aid

Classes last 2.5-3 hours. Attendees are required to RSVP so that the appropriate number of materials can be available. Limited seating.

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.

The beads are then donated to Augusta Evans School. The students use them for various learning activities then resell them as a fundraiser.

12 pounds = 1 grocery bag filled to the top with beads.

Get Your Paper(s)!

There are 1 insert in today's paper:

*Parade also has a couple coupons

Get more than one set of inserts a week! Recommend 3-4 sets.
Get the Mobile and Pensacola paper--The coupons in the inserts are different. You can buy the Pensacola paper at several gas stations in Baldwin County and Publix.
Larger cities get better coupons! Atlanta has great inserts! I do not recommend subscribing to the Atlanta paper--shipping costs too much. You can buy large city whole inserts from coupon clipping sites like Dede's site found in the right side bar.

Tips for Shopping Children Consignment Sales

So here it is! Our first video debut! Consignment season is kicking into high gear and Eastern Shore Mom has some great tips to share with readers. Personally, I have consigned my children's clothes once, shopped twice and volunteered once. For me, it was tough because I would get in the door and see all of the stuff and think--Oh my, this is way too much. I would just get overwhelmed. Well, last night I learned what I was doing wrong.
Yes, there are secrets to shopping consignment sales and ESM is sharing them with all of us!

1. Just like with Publix, when shopping consignment sales you want to make a list of needs and wants. Focus.
2. You'll want to bring along something to tote your goodies in(laundry basket w/ belt).
3. Big items first! They will tag and reserve the item, so you can finish shopping.
4. Be sure to write down child's sizes and trace your child's foot on a piece of paper for shoe shopping. Consider shopping for this summer and next summer's size.
5. Always check the boy section for unisex shoes(Crocs, Keds).
6. Look for NEW items at a consignment sale.
7. Find a place to sort what you have in your basket. Make sure that you have everything from your list. Tops to match shorts, etc...Hang unwanted items in specified locations.
8. Monogram on an outfit wrong? Consider put an applique over it!
9. Take a couple batteries with you to test electronics.
10. Volunteer or Consign!!! Volunteering/consigning gets you in the door to shop before the public.

As you can see we had a good time. However, I want you to know that I was truly impressed with the items at Kidz Klozet. It was well laid out/organized and the prices were GREAT. The video was fun. You can get a feel of our personalities if you have not met us in person. Eastern Shore Mom knows her stuff when it comes to consignments! I am super excited about shopping my "first" sale with ESM's tips and the video blogs to come...Can we make another one today?!?
