In My Cart -- $253.52 of Groceries for $7.37!

I decided to start sharing my couponing adventures on the blog! I buy ALL sorts of items. Healthy produce and organic to tasty just good for the soul junk food. I eat it all so I coupon for it all, too. You can coupon no matter what type of diet you follow. I also donate a ton to the food pantry and USO.

  • An ibotta rebate trip. I needed 4 more rebates to get a $4 bonus that were ending. So got some of my crackers, some ice cream and some vegan paleo hot pockets plus cereal to donate. 
  • The lettuce was on bogo with a $1 digital Publix coupon so only $1!
  • The Glucerna had both a manufacturer and a Publix coupon and was on sale so made $4 every 2 boxes. I used that overage to pay for my fancy $10 cheese in the bottom corner. Whoa!

Our store does weekend freebies for loyalty members. This week it was a Chobani less sugar yogurt and a Hershey's candy bar.

Foodlion does promotional texts if you sign up for them. They send out discounts now and again. For Valentine's Day they gave everyone $2 towards flowers/candy or Valentine's presents. I opted for some Godiva which also had an ibotta rebate so was only 25cents. Yay!

Equal was a money maker and donation
