My Publix Trip - Spent $2.48, Saved 91%

After the great deals at the pre - Thanksgiving sales, this weeks sale doesn't seem that great. I still have dozens of gas cards from the previous sale, but if you can manage to find $50 worth of product, the $10 off $50 gas card deal is always worth getting. If you get Shell gas cards  you can combine it with the Fuel Rewards Network (FRN) program they offer.
 
Anyway, we just needed some salad stuff even though we finally have some of our own produce in the garden - tomatoes, green onions, cucumbers and green peppers! It was a short growing season this fall for some reason and our plants are starting to shrivel up already. But for a while we'll have our our salad toppings.The best deal I see this week is the International Delight creamer but you'll probably be limited in quantity since its a Target coupon.

Is Fish a Safe Source of Vitamin B12?

It's alarming to know that at least one in four adults in the United States today experience vitamin B12 deficiency. Even more disturbing is the fact that half of the U.S. population has less than optimal levels of this important nutrient.
Why are many people suffering from B12 deficiency when it is one of the most common vitamins today? In fact, you can get it from a wide variety of sources. Vitamin B12 is prevalent in animal food products, including beef, liver, and other meats, as well as dairy. It is also present in fish and other types of seafood.
Seafood Sources of Vitamin B12
The National Institutes of Health say that the recommended daily allowance (RDA) for B12 is 2.4 micrograms per day for adults. For pregnant women, the RDA is slightly higher. Consuming different types of seafood will provide you with the ideal RDA for vitamin B12.
Some examples of seafood with ideal levels of B12 are clams, mollusks, shrimp, and scallops. For example, a three-ounce serving of cooked clams can give you 84 micrograms of vitamin B12.
There are also saltwater and freshwater fish that contain ideal amounts of vitamin B12. Freshly-caught tuna, snapper, salmon, haddock, and halibut are some great examples. For example, salmon gives 4.9 micrograms of B12 per serving. As for freshwater fish, the ideal choice is wild rainbow trout, which may contain 5.4 micrograms of B12 in every three-ounce serving.
However, when consuming seafood and fish for their B12 content, make sure you only consume freshly-caught wild ones. Avoid factory-farmed fish as much as possible, as these are not as healthy as they appear.
The Problem with Factory-Farmed Fish
The rapid growth of the fish farming industry is due to the decline in ocean fish stocks. In fact, in 2003, researchers found that tuna, swordfish, marlin, sharks, cod, halibut, and other large fish varieties had dropped by 90 percent in just 50 years. This means that only 10 percent of all large fishes are left in the ocean!
One of the main reasons why this happens is irresponsible fishing practices. One example is trawling, a process that works by scooping up everything within the range, up to the ocean floor. Of the acquired resources, only five percent is used, while the 95 percent is dumped back into the ocean, dead and useless.
The decline in the quantity of freshly-caught wild fish is the reason why many supermarkets and establishments now acquire their seafood from factory fish farms. Not only are the fish from these farms contain less B12, but they are loaded with other unhealthy toxins that you would NOT want to put in your body.
Studies have found that farm-raised fish contain higher levels of dioxins, PCBs, toxaphene, dieldrin, and mercury than wild fish. These farm-raised fish are also loaded with antibiotics, hormones and even chemicals to change their appearance. For example, salmons are given synthetic chemicals to give them their pinkish appearance.
If You Want to Get B12 from Fish, You Need to Get Fish from a Safe Source
The problem is that some wild-caught fish may contain certain levels of pollutants and heavy metals (although these levels are lower than those in farmed fish). Before consuming any fish or seafood product, make sure you verify its purity first. Find a trustworthy source that can provide you with wild fish that is free of toxins and is sustainably harvested. One wonderful example is wild Alaskan salmon, which is harvested from pristine freshwater lakes.
Indeed, getting optimal levels of vitamin B12 should be an important concern of any health-conscious person. If you choose seafood as one of your B12 sources, remember these safety considerations, so your efforts will be rewarded.
About the Author
Mishka Thomas suffered from two years ago. However, instead of supplementing, she chose to increase her consumption of B12-rich foods instead. Fresh, wild-caught fish is one of her favorite B12 food sources, but makes sure to consume it moderately.

Spent $3.96 on My Publix Trip

Another spendy week is in my future and I'm burning through my gift cards this month, having spent $79 already in November and its only halfway through the month. Usually my shops are less than a dollar, but I've had to change my attitude and be okay with spending less than five dollars per shop. For the last several years I've had essentially free groceries due to couponing but I see the tide turning and expect to have to actually pay next year. I just shake my head when I'm at the store when I see what others without coupons spend on their groceries, it is so outrageous.
 
Anyway, I managed to get that good Lindsay Olive coupon from facebook so I could stock up on them since they are free with the coupon and the bogo sale. Of course all the vitamins are gone since the end of the green flyer deals are today, and it looks like the only vitamin on sale that might be a deal next green flyer is Vitamin D at 33% off. The Save A Lot facebook coupon is the savior this month,
 
This weekend in your Sunday Tampa paper keep an eye out for a single page Sweetbay flyer as it may have the $5 off $35 coupon like we saw earlier this week.
 
So for my shop we don't need salad stuff since we're taking the week off work. I spent $3.96 and saved 90%.

$5 off $35 Coupon in Today's Paper

Those of you in Tampa area, there is a $5 off $35 Sweetbay coupon in today's front section of the Tampa Bay Times, page 5A. It can be used at Publix too. Expires 11/17.

My Publix Trip $14, Saving 82%

This week the ad for Publix is freaking me out. I have so many scenarios and can only get a few things I need in each trip because there is just not enough overage or moneymakers to afford me all I want. In the last week I've had to split orders and do multiple transactions just to use the $5 off $25 SAL or WD coupon to get any overage. Also the prices in my stores are much higher than the ad match ups I've calculated on. This week the Halls cough drops are $1.57 rather than the $1.23 everyone is using in matchups. Also the Suave Lotion is 3.29 rather than 2.45 in the match ups. But it didn't matter because the shelf at my store was empty. That's because the coupon doesn't beep if you use more than 2 in your order. So the wording "limit 2 per" is worthless and people will still clear the shelves. Anyway, a rain check is a good consolation since it will extend the life of the coupon which expires this weekend. I also need to get dog food that is kind of expensive, the Purina One big bag. But the stupid bag is not as big as it used to be, only 16.4 lbs now so that means it doesn't even last a month for a big dog. It's hard to cover fifteen dollars in overage these days in one order. I'm hoping for a good PQ in the Sunday paper - maybe a $5 off $50 if we're lucky.
 
So this shop I spent over $14, the most I have spent on any shopping trip all year (except for gas card shops). I saved $78.54 for a savings rate of 82%. I made a last minute decision to split the order so I could throw in another $5 off $25 and I didn't do the split very well. I was stressed out how much it was going to cost. One order ended up being negative and the other ended up over fourteen dollars. I really need to chill out and accept that they have moved my cheese. I hate that vendors are making smaller packages and raising prices and lowering coupon values. I understand the coupon usage restrictions, that doesn't bother me because if they didn't have them I would never be able to find the products I seek. So, I have several more shops to plan and do this weekend so I can get some Suave, Purina One and of course I'd like to get more of that Kraft Cheese.
 
I hope you have good luck with your shops and find all you need. Have a nice holiday weekend.
