I love saving money.
I also love getting items that our family and another family need.
Last night, I went shopping for my friend (my side job) so I checked to see if I needed anything from Walmart and Publix. I looked at some websites to see what deals people had found plus checked out the companies websites for coupons.
I had (3) $1.50 off any Folgers printable coupons to use at Walmart - this would help pay for the Organic Rice Milk that Harper needed. On top of that I had (2) $1 off Rice Dream printable coupons.
In total, I paid $1 after tax for 2 Rice Milks and 3 Folgers Instant Boxes!!! I saved over $6 by spending a few minutes looking for the coupons I needed.
Publix was super simple. I had the BOGO Publix coupon for the Hawaiian Punch plus (2) $1 off printables. I paid less than $1 after taxes for these two juices. They will be given away to some friends. I saved $4.39!
This morning, the girls and I left around 8:30 am to make a quick run to the Bread Outlet (then stopped to say hi to Grandmommy) and Aldi.
The Bread Outlet is where I hit the jackpot! I did not know that in the mornings right when they open they sell a tall shelf of bread 2 for $1.00!!! Awesome!
I was purchasing bread for two families this week (mine and another) so this was perfect. God definitely blessed me with this find.
I picked up (10) loaves of Nature's Own 100% Whole Wheat Bread and (2) Nature's Own English Muffins for $7.00 plus tax!!!
At Walmart this bread is over $2 a loaf - I saved over $15 by shopping at the Outlet.
All of the bread is in the freezer - I will pull out what I need in the mornings!
A trick I learned from Mad Hungry is to freeze your bread - when you need to make a sandwich in the morning before work for lunch - take the frozen bread out - make the sandwich - your sandwich will thaw out by lunch time! No need for a fridge!
Aldi was simple. Milk, eggs, onions and applesauce. Total Spent $6.84 after tax!
