My Publix Trip - Paid $8.38

Finally a week where there are some cleaning supplies that are a decent deal with the BOGO sale and a coupon matchup. I stocked up on Soft Scrub and Lysol, plus some pens (for overage). Its amazing that pen sale has been going on for several weeks! Also the papermate TQ has reset with an exp date of 9/3. If you ever need an mpp of TQ's you can more than likely get them HERE. Hope this doesn't end as it seems like someone is selling TQ printables on ebay. I refuse to buy any coupons since I'm not sure these people have obtained them in an ethical manner.
 
Unfortunately, it seems like we all have to deal with unscrupulous couponers more often these days. My store is becoming frustrated with the number of couponers who just throw a pile of coupons at the cashier and they don't match any items they purchased, or they don't get the required amount (two items for a $1/2 coupon) and then they fuss when the coupon is handed back. The manager told my DH that they appreciate "good couponers" like us because they are increasingly having to train their staff to watch out for the scammers.
 
Anyway, my shop was not one of my best by a long shot but I need to remind myself I walked away with a $10 GC and all my groceries for around $8. So I came out ahead - not by much but I usually don't spend more than about $3 on a trip. I skipped the gas card deal since I'm stocked from last time, but I would encourage anyone who drives to get a few of these cards as they are a good deal.
 
Yesterday in my mail I got my $20 Publix GC from a storm rebate, not sure which one it was exactly, I think it was pretty recent though. I also received my $25 Publix GC in the mail the day before from Blog Spark for compensation for doing a giveaway next week (Check back on the 18th for a Publix GC giveaway). So it seems like I'm flush with Publix gift cards for a while.
