Bi-lo --- saved 54%

Bi-lo is open really late and it's just across the street, so I stopped by there too on Wednesday night. Since it was late, I didn't pick up much.

Trip summary: I bought 2 4lb bags of Dixie sugar and about 6lbs of pork chops. I haven't bought much pork lately, except for ham, because the prices have been outrageous. I try to pay under $2/lb.

Total before savings and coupons: $27.55
Total out of pocket: $12.70
saved 54% ---- it's nice being able to save on the essentials!

Publix --- saved 51%

Well, I had to go shopping solo yesterday. My friend had to work late :( I got to the store luckily before closing. I did two transactions.

Trip summary #1: I bought 4 Green Giant Valley Fresh Steamers. Grandpa loves the corn!

Total before savings and coupons: $9.76
Total out of pocket: $1.00
saved 90%

Trip summary #2: I bought 4 bags of Baked Lays and 10 cans of Campbells Chunky soup.

Total before savings: $40.77
Total out of pocket: $24.51
saved 40% --- not bad for no coupons!

Overall, I saved 51% this week!

Mail Call! P&G and Lane Bryant

Got some nice stuff in the mail today. I got another $15 off $15 coupon from Lane Bryant. They are having a sale right now, buy 1, get 1 50% off on all shorts and crops. I may have to go use this coupon!

I also got a nice sample box from Proctor and Gamble. It came from P&GEverydaySolutions through the P&GbrandSAMPLER section. You must be a member of P&GEverydaySolutions to request samples. The samples are great and you get some sweet coupons. I got a can of Iam's cat food, 3 Pampers diapers, and a sample of pink lemonade flavor Metamucil. I really like the $3 coupon for medium or large size Tide and the $1 coupon off ANY Tide. I requested other samples, so I'll just have to wait to see if I get them. P&G does limit how often you can get samples; you'll need to wait at least 90 days inbetween requests.

Mail Call! CVS

I've gotten two great flyers in the mail from CVS. The first one is a $1.50 store coupon for ANY Kotex! Since it is a store coupon, I can combine it with a manufacturer's coupon for extra savings. The second flyer was a new CVS card. CVS just spontaneously decided to send me one in case my old one was too ragged to use anymore. They also included a $5 off a $30 purchase coupon!

I got both these flyers by connecting my CVS online account to my CVS ExtraCare card. I highly recommend doing this. Last week, they emailed me a $4 off $20 purchase coupon and that wasn't the first time they have sent me special savings. When I went to check my CVS online account, they let me print out my quarterly earnings too! It's also worth a visit to check out their coupons: they are a mix of store and manufacturer coupons.
