Bi-lo -- saved 85%!

My friends and I also went to Bi-lo. They did pretty well; one even got a catalina deal I didn't know about. I saved my shopping for later in the night.

Trip summary:
I had a raincheck for Bounty Basic single rolls BOGO. I bought 16 rolls (don't worry, they had plenty left).

Total before savings and coupon: $20.68
Total out of pocket: $3.07
saved 85% -- that's just .19 a roll! also this trip will go towards the $50 I need for the P&G $100 coupon book I mentioned here

Publix --- saved 62%

I did a mega shopping trip on Wednesday. I not only did my shopping, but also the shopping of two of my two stores! Whew, was that tiring.

Trip summary:
I bought 4 Bird's Eye steamfresh veggies, 2 boxes Mrs. Paul's fish sticks, 4 jars Publix jelly (for my sister's wedding), 2 dozen eggs, and the penny item, Publix oreos.

Total before savings and coupons: $29.85
Total out of pocket: $11.37
saved 62% --- the jelly was over half the bill, but Publix is the only place that has the flavor I needed

My friends also did well; one saved 25% (diapers are pricey, ouch) and the other about 45%.

Victoria's Secret -- saved 59% + FREE!

I went to Victoria's Secret because my coupon for a FREE Fragrance sampler was close to expiration. Don't forget to sign in at Pink Nation and print out your coupon. I also had a FREE panty with any Pink purchase coupon that they sent me in the mail.

Trip summary:
I bought some Pink lotion to go along with my free items. The fragrance sampler is completely free, no tax. I was also not charged tax on the free panty.

Total before savings and coupon: $16.06
Total out of pocket: $6.56
saved 59% -- please join Pink Nation if you haven't already; all members will get a special FREE gift when they hit 1 million members. I've also gotten a lot of free stuff just by being a member anyway.

Lane Bryant -- saved 56%

I made a quick trip to the mall today. I was hoping to use my Lane Bryant $15 off $15 coupon I got recently.

Trip summary:
I found a sweater and a summery shirt on clearance for $14.99 each. It was hard finding items I liked that weren't see-through or exorbitantly expensive.

Total before savings and coupon: $125.64
Total out of pocket: $55.69
saved 56%

Complete Earth Fare's Boot challenge and get a coupon to exchange Oreo cookies for FREE Earth Fare Organic Cream cookies (3 flavors available). Coupon is valid until 3/17.

Thanks to SouthernSavers for sharing this info.

BOGO Starburst coupon!

Just become a fan of Starburst on Facebook to get your coupon. This would go great with the Skittles coupon I mentioned here.

Mail Call! Purex 3-in-1

I got a sample of the new Purex 3-in-1 today. I had forgotten I requested this sample. There are 2 sheets included which are enough for 2 regular loads or 1 extra large load. I like the concept behind this new product that combines laundry detergent, fabric softener, and anti-static. I'm planning to try it this week.

Get your own sample here. A $1 coupon that expires 12/31/11 is also in the packet. If you like it, you can get another coupon by telling a friend about their contest here.
