A big shout-out and THANK YOU to my friend Margie who gave me 6 Smart Balance Butter coupons. I hope you did this awesome deal last week. I was able to get a raincheck because they were out of the spreadable butter. They were BOGO for the large 15 oz. size and you were able to stack two $1 PQ's and 2 $.50 MQ's and pay just $.35 each! These normally run $3.69 each and it is my favorite butter (next to the real thing, of course)! I am stocking up at that price! Don't you just love those rainchecks and coupon stacks!!!


I love getting Dawn dish soap at CVS when I can get the small bottle for $.50 each. I like to use it as a filler for my never-ending ECB's and it is a great size for our camper. If you want to print the coupon now and hold it, use zip 77477 at and use next week at CVS!


I thought I would give you an update on my Smart Balance Milk! I wouldn't believe this if you told me but my milk expired on April 8th and as of today it is STILL GOOD! I smelled it first and didn't smell anything wrong. So I figured I would go for it and take a sip. Perfect...tasted like milk! So here we are just a day over 2 weeks and the milk is still good! That is great news for those of us who don't go through a lot of milk!

Just a FYI that the gas card deal should be coming back the week of May 1 - May 7! I read it on another blog along with a sneak peek of that ad! Go to and you will see it for yourself! I am excited about stocking up on Clorox bleach using my $2/$3 coupon! Not all the matchups are done yet but it is awesome to see the NEW NEW ad! Save those rainchecks and pull them out in a few weeks!


I am struggling to come up with enough stuff in this new ad to use my $5/$30 coupon. I found this deal to help me out. Lubriderm 6 oz. is $3.29 each. Use the $1.50/1 in the PAF and the $1.50 printable coupon and pay only $.29 each. The cats pride cat litter is BOGO $6.99. Use the $2/1 MQ from 3/2 SS and $2/1 PQ from the Paws booklet or printable and it is FREE plus moneymaker! Also, NY Texas Toast is 50% off and when you use the $1 printable coupon you will pay under $.50 each! Stouffers Lasagna and Muellers Pasta round out my list. Actually I now plan on doing two transactions buying 6 Cats Pride Litter at one time and throwing in another lasagna and some produce! Big surprise I can actually use two WD coupons with this ad!


I was in Target today and noticed they had kids jeans, up to size 5 for just $3.00 a pair! They had the adjustable waist with the button also. They were marked 70% off and were such a great deal! Unfortunately, the only one I have to buy for in that size is in south florida so they don't need jeans! Head to Target to check them out if you need any!

We don't drink much milk here at our house so I prefer to buy Smart Balance milk because of its LONG expiration date. I really prefer to get it for $1 a 1/2 gallon with coupons and a sale! My husband is one that if the date says April 8, 2014, he is throwing it in the trash. You cannot always go by those dates. My Smart Balance milk is dated April 8th and I was still able to use it this morning! I keep waiting for it to start turning and it has not yet! So for those of you that stick right by the date this is proof that you can't always do that! I am going to check and use it everyday for my oatmeal. I can't wait to see just how far it will last past that date!

I can't remember if I ever told you guys but I found a blog that reports the Publix ad on Sunday evening instead of Monday morning. I LOVE that I can preview the ad at night and print my coupons before everyone else in the morning! Check it out at

Want some free strawberries to go with the cheap Sara Lee poundcake you can get at Publix this week? Head to Target where strawberries are on sale for $1.50. Use the $1/$1+ fresh fruit Target mobile coupon (text THANKS to 827438 and use the $.50 coupon when you sign up at


I went into Publix tonight to use my $10 coupon and ran across something that rung up full price that was supposed to be on sale. The McCormick Grill Mates were clearly marked $.99, save $3.90 on the shelf. On top of that I had $.75 off coupons. When they rang up, they rang up full price. I brought it to her attention and she sat there and scoured the ad for the sale. I told her I didn't know if it was in the ad and I ran back and got the sticker off the shelf. You know what that means! They gave both of them to me for free plus I still used my $.75 off coupons! If you do this deal and it rings up full price, make sure you bring it to their attention. I was at the beach store so they will probably fix the glitch!


Just in case you missed it, be sure to check the Target ad from Sunday's paper and cut out the $10/$50 coupon. In case you threw it out it is also printable on the target website. It is only good until April 19th so make sure you use it this week before Saturday!

LeCreuset is having a sale at the outlet location. When you walk in, you scratch a card where you can get up to 35% off an item. I have been waiting for a sale to buy the forged frying pans. They are like the Calphalon but will never warp and have a lifetime guarantee. I am so tired of spending $40 - $60 for a frying pan only to have it scratch and warp in just a short amount of time. I bit the bullet and spent $150 on two frying pans, a 12" and a 9" and am excited to know I will get these replaced if anything should happen to them. Now is also a good time to pick up any cast iron pieces if you want to start a collection. I have one and eventually want to add the largest one to my collection. My only regret is that I wish I had these when I had all the kids living at home when I cooked up a storm!


We just got in the cutest bracelets at the store I work at, PEACE LOVE HOME. They are called Gingersnaps. You can choose rings or bracelets and snap in a disc which will change the look of the whole bracelet. They are fun and full of blitz and are the latest rage out there! Tired of spending $$$$ on Pandora, Troll Beads, etc.? Come check these out! They are so cute and really hot!


I spotted the new booklet GET A BUNDLE OF SAVINGS at the SR 16 store to the right of the customer service desk. Keep your eyes out for this book! Last year I stocked up on Kleenex and Huggies wipes for my daughter!

Beginning 4/13, eggs will be $.99 at Walgreens. If you printed the $.55/2 coupon for eggs from Facebook (look up incredible edible egg) you will get them for just $.75 a dozen. Take this opportunity to stock up on some eggs! I think I see some quiche in my dinner menu plans!

Just in cased you missed it, these are the hot deals this week at Publix. Right Guard Deodorant, Hawaiian Punch, Krave Cereal and milk, Friendship Cottege Cheese, Beneful dog food, Suave Body Lotion, Yoplait Go-Gurt, and Magnum Ice Cream Bars. Add more cereal to your list (Golden Grahams), Jello and Toufayan Wraps.


Well, darn it!!! That is all I have to say! I am sure you have heard that Winn Dixie is starting to take competitor coupons. That was the good news. The bad news is it is not the stores in this area. Gainsville, Tampa area and many central Florida locations are going to accept them. Once again, North Florida is out of the loop! I am just hoping that the NE Florida Winn Dixie stores will jump on the bandwagon and follow their footsteps. As much as I dislike WD, I would go in there more often if I could get some good deals!

Something happened to me today that I never wanted to see happen. I shopped at the Moultrie Publix because I had to visit someone in the shores...big mistake! I had six boxes of cereal in my cart and I went to use 6 target coupons. They told me the new rule was only one competitor coupon per order. They let me use two because it was BOGO but they had to take four boxes off my order. I would have thought they would have let me get my boxes and tell me next time they would only take one. I left that store and went right over to cobblestone and got my 4 boxes of cereal and 10 deodorant for a grand total of $.18 after using my competitor coupons. They didn't mention anything about the new rule so I am hoping that is moultrie's rule and the other stores don't follow suit. Let me know if this same thing happens to you!!


Look at the Winn Dixie ad that came in yesterday's mail. There is a $5 off $40 coupon that is good for 4 days only. Make sure you watch the date because it expires 4/5/14! I am going to stop by there and pick up some bleach for $.99, boneless chuck roast for Italian beef sandwiches and chicken leg quarters for $.89/lb.
