Publix ---- saved 76%

I've been going shopping with a friend most Wednesdays lately. I didn't really need anything this week, but I did help her find some good deals.

Trip summary:
I bought Muellers Whole Wheat spaghetti and a pint of Ben & Jerry's ice cream (BOGO). I found a little coupon book at Food Lion yesterday with a .75 store coupon for B&J; look at the front for a "green" coupon book.

Total before savings: $5.21
Total out of pocket: $1.25
saved 76% ---- My friend saved about 45%; I'm getting really frustrated with the lack of good coupons in my area. It's making it hard to save more for her; she's a little pickier than I am about brands.

Walgreens --- saved 67%!

I went to Walgreens today. Needed some eggs, and Walgreens always has them for .99 around here (that's even cheaper than Aldi).

Trip summary:
I bought eggs, 3 Schick shave gels (free after RR this week), and 2 $30 bottles of Osteo Bi-flex (BOGO this week). I started out with $5 RR from earlier and did separate transactions for 2 of the Schick for more RR.

Total before savings and coupons: $75.80
Total out of pocket: $24.71
saved 67% --- I still have $3 RR for later

Sorry for the lack of updates this week!

My cat has been driving me insane! She won't let me sleep more than a few hours, and this has been going on for about 3 weeks. I've been unable to concentrate on anything, much less couponing/samples.

Luckily, we have come up with a solution. Now, that I've gotten some rest, posting will continue like usual!
