Men Can Coupon Too

I'm still up North being caregiver for a family member. The weather up here in MN is brutal, can't say I'd recommend it. I'm trying to be tough and have managed an hour of outdoor walking everyday for my exercise. I miss riding my bicycle and my hot tub, even though I hear the weather is warm and dry in Florida.
 
I've been shopping up here and I have to tell you people in Florida, we are very lucky with Publix and the generous coupon policy allowing a manufacturer coupon on the free item of a BOGO, plus the use of competitor coupons, and no minimum amount required to use coupons. I did a big shop at Rainbow here in MN and they have double coupons of up to 5 coupons if you spend at least $25, and you can stack with their store coupon and use expired coupons up to 30 days. I had a handful of coupons and it still didn't do much to help savings. We spent $118, and saved $60 (40 was store sales, 20 in coupons) for a 33% savings. With low savings like that it is going to be hard or impossible to convince my family up here to coupon.
 
Oh well, Publix is still great. Even DH can save money. He has done four shops with my input over Skype, and saved $342, spent $25.62 for a 93% savings this week.

(There is a great deal on Duracell batteries this week using the Publix $1.50/1 coupon in the All the trimmings booklet + $3/2 MQ from 11-24RP. )
