My Publix Trip 2-18- UPDATED!

I was super excited about going to Publix today- I think it was mostly because I was going with just one of the babies which meant my chances were really good for no screaming while shopping! I found soooooo many great coupons while shopping today!! They were all over the store-but most of the coupons I picked up I will hold onto for future sales but either way I plan on going back before this weeks sale is over! I thought I did pretty awesome considering I bought a 6-pack of beer and a dozen roses! I couldn't beat the prices! The beer had a hangtag on it to save an extra $2.00 when you bought pasta and I was getting some pasta for FREE so it worked out great. The roses I bought just because I wanted them- sure they were a little wilted but Baby H and I wanted them! We cleaned them up and took off all the dying petals and they look beautiful now =)

I also won this Baby Bond nursing cover on another blog- I have not had a chance to try it out yet- but it looks pretty easy and I think baby H is going to like not being covered up by our current nursing cover (she gets so hot!)- this cover hides mommy but not baby!

Tuesday's Mailbox!

After going out shopping today I came home to ANOTHER package! This was my Pull Ups Potty Dance House Party I won! It included a FREE coupon for Pull Ups, 15 sets of various coupons, 15 coloring sheets, 15 sets of stickers, 15 Potty Dance DVDs, 15 Potty Dance mats & 1 USB drive. This is my second House Party I have been picked for so far this year!

If you have any questions about anything I have posted please feel free to ask!!

Finally Some Shopping!

I did not do much shopping last week because I just didn't see much we needed! I ventured out today because I had some coupons that were about to expire here is what I got!!

Walmart is not my favorite place to shop-- but I did not feel like driving all the way to Publix- they didn't have everything I was looking for but I got all of this for $35 after coupons! The biggest part of my purchase was the two diaper genie refills that are $6 each- Walmart is the cheapest place I have found them- Anyone know any good deals on these?

My best scores were 7 FREE Athenos Greek Yogurts, BOGO Minute Maid Orange Juice, $.59/lb Bananas, 2- $1.00 Glade candles & 6 squeezable applesauce/drink things that Hunter LOOOVES for $.67/each!

We also went by CVS today because I had a $3 CVS Excedrin PM coupon (expiring today) & a $3.50 Excedrin PM coupon that I figured when combined would make for a pretty good deal. I had not even looked @ the CVS deals this week so I did not know what they had going on. I was pretty stoked when I saw that these two HUGE boxes that are normally $10.99 each were on sale for 2/$13.98 with $3 ECB. So after my coupons they were only $6.48 total plus I have $3 in ECB. I also picked up a bunch of Valentine's Day candy for the hubby- one because it was 50% off and two because I had some "extra" CVS money to spend. My total for all of this was $6 and change and I still have $3 in ECBs to use (total savings was almost $40)! (Missing in the picture are two more Nerds Ropes- Hunter thought they were toys)

FREE Aquafresh Extreme Toothpaste- After Coupon

You can go here to print a $1/1 Aquafresh Extreme Toothpaste coupon. Target and Walmart have this toothpaste in their travel section for $.97!
