Celebrate Earth Day With Publix

Spring has sprung, and what better way to welcome its arrival than by giving back to our planet?
Celebrate Earth Day with General Mills by incorporating new environmentally-friendly practices into your daily routine, like bringing reusable bags to the grocery store or other “green” initiatives.
A couple of weeks ago I made a quick stop into Publix to grab some stuff I needed.  I saw some super cute reusable bags with alligators and flamingos.  I used to have tons of reusable bags, but I made the mistake of leaving them on the floor in the pantry one day and my dog chewed them up. I grabbed a few and have been taking them with me each time I go to Publix. It might seem small, but the small actions add up and every little bit helps!

Starting April 12, you can find great savings on brands like the Cascadian Farm, Larabar and Muir Glen, available at Publix. Be on the lookout for the “Happy Easter” booklet in stores!

The Happy Easter booklet contains the following savings and are good thru 5/2:
  • $2 off 2 Cascadian Farm Frozen Organic Fruit, Vegetables or Potatoes 8-16 oz.
  • $2 off 2 Muir Glen Tomatoes 28 oz or Pasta Sauca 25.5 oz
  • Cascadian Farm Cereal or bars on sale for $2.99 each (7.1 – 14.6 oz)
  • Larabar Multi-Pack (5 ct) on sale $4.99
  • Buy any 3 Cascadian Farm 7.1-14.6 oz or Muir Glen 14-18 oz or Larabar 5 ct. products and get one Publix reusable bag FREE
You can print the following coupons for even more savings:

New Liberte Flavors and Savings at Publix



 If you have been following my blog for awhile you know that I buy Liberte yogurts very often.  I love how rich and creamy they are.  Liberte Mediterranee uses only the finest ingredients and nothing more - from whole milk and cream to live, active cultures and bold real fruit.  And as always, they refrain from adding gelatin, sugar substitutes or preservatives.

Be on the lookout for new Liberte Mediterranee Lime and Orange-Mango flavors in all new packaging.  You can also grab a great deal on Liberte Mediterranee right now at Publix.

Liberte yogurt 10 for $10
use $.40/1 printables from HERE

This is a GREAT price on high quality yogurt!

Publix Trip 4-10-14


I made a last minute change this morning and headed to the closest Publix instead of my regular store. Me nor my little guy were feeling great and today is my hubby's birthday.  There were a few things I didn't get on my list because I planned on using Target coupons so I guess I'll need to make another trip before this sale is over.  Oh, and at the bottom of this post you will see why I choose to do the majority of my shopping at Publix and not at Walmart.  
Here's what I got today:

(4) Old El Paso Frozen Entrees $7.99

Now onto the thorn in my side today...since I didn't go to my regular Publix I also didn't go to Kroger which is where I get stuff I need that isn't on sale at Publix.  The items in the pic below cost me $31.71 plus tax at Walmart.  I will get $.50 back from Ibotta for the milk.  But the difference shows you why I love my Publix!!

I'm Definitely a Savannahian

I came across this on Facebook and I can totally relate to the whole thing!  I've lived in Savannah my whole life (except for the short time I lived in Atlanta.)  When I was younger I dreamed of moving to far off places and seeing it all, but now that I'm older I wouldn't want my children to grow up anywhere else.
If you'd like a good laugh and are from the Savannah area or even been to Savannah you should read 22 Signs You're a Legit Savannahian

I am working on the Kroger Trip and should have it up shortly. I've got a little one with a nasty virus so I'm slow this week.  I hope everyone is having a great weekend!

Publix Trip 4-3-14


A heads up - I forgot the Chips Ahoy cookies in the truck so they aren't in the pic.  Also, for those that are new here, I wanted to say that I don't do that whole "extreme couponing" thing because to be honest nobody needs 500 candy bars.  Seriously.  I do real shopping for a real family of five.  I aim to save money on the things that we really need.
On a side note, I've been getting so many pie crusts lately because I finally found a recipe that everyone in my house likes that involves carrots and peas.  If you have trouble getting your little ones to eat veggies I highly suggest trying the Chicken Pot Pie recipe from HERE.  It's super easy and it's really good.  My kids won't eat peas any other way.

Helping Joplin reopen its schools

And this is just another reason why I support General Mills. :-)

Helping Joplin reopen its schools

Nearly three years after a tornado ripped apart Joplin, Mo., another sparkle of hope emerged in early January with the re-opening of three schools – two of which were rebuilt with funds from the General Mills Foundation. It took millions of dollars to rebuild Joplin’s Soaring Heights Elementary and East Middle Schools – destroyed in... View Full Post

$5 Off $50 Publix Coupon

Ok, so when I got home from shopping today I found this little goodie in my paper.  I was NOT happy that I didn't have it BEFORE I went to Publix this morning.  And I'm sure there won't be enough deals for me to make another trip.  :-(
Keep an eye out for it.  It's only valid through 3/19.
