#CrunchyGoodness Meets Creamy #PlatefullCoop #Publix

How does some free Cascadian Farm granola and free Liberyogurt sound? Both are possible this week!

Fall is a great time of the year to switch to a hearty breakfast for those cool mornings. Of course you eat breakfast, don't you? It's my favorite meal of the day because all the choices are yummy!  Your family will love when you serve granola topped with fruit and yogurt. Cascadian Farm Granola and Liber yogurt are a perfect, easy combination that is convenient to prepare before school or work. My favorite combination is the Fruit and Nut Granola topped with Blackberry Liber yogurt.

If you have a hectic morning and need to bring your breakfast with you, there are these handy two part containers with a lid where you can pre portion the cereal and yogurt to transport to your destination. Then you can munch on your mid morning snack after you get settled from your commute. This #CrunchyGoodness in your morning can't be beat!

My Publix Trip - Gas Card Deal, Saved $130

So, I think I like the new coupon policy. I actually found some eye drops and vita melts on the shelf at #Publix today. I actually thought this weeks sale had a lot of stuff I needed to get and managed to get my order up without too many fillers, so I could get a gas card. But then after throwing in ground pork and buns to make Manwiches this weekend, my order got even  bigger so I got TWO gas cards. The cashier didn't say anything, but I'm not sure if that's allowed to do multiple gas cards per order. But we're in the grace period another week so its cool. Another cool thing, was I didn't need numbers which hardly ever happens, especially since I stacked store and manufacturer coupons on almost all my deals.

In the end, I spent $101, and my receipt tells me I saved $130. We walked out of there with two $50 gas cards and our pile of groceries was essentially free after the coupons. In the old days, I would have expected to make a profit off the gas card deal but now I'm fine with paying for the gas card and getting my food for free. Life is really going to change with couponing after all my WD $5 off $30 expire at the end of the year. Besides the cutback in Redplum coupons in Tampa, and then no WD, and the tighter coupon policies, I'm sure my grocery budget will need to be adjusted.

But couponing will always be worth it.

Publix New Coupon Policy Size Clarification

The new Publix coupon policy is confusing everyone, especially the stores. To clarify the new policy which starts on 10/18/14, if a coupon does not have a size requirement it may not be acceptable. Well, here is your justification that "any" is considered a size. Its a letter from corporate that states coupons that state "any size" are acceptable. Save it to your smartphone, you're going to need it.
