My Publix Trip - saved 97%

This is another slow week at the store for me, there is not a lot I need or want. My trip this week was focused on getting produce for our salads and using a raincheck on the Nutrigrain bars to get overage to cover the produce. We did get some of the Aleve D since its on sale for $3.99 (reg $6.59) but it was sure a hassle at the pharmacy. Since the product has Sudafed and drug dealers use this stuff you have to sign a log, they need your id and enter it in their database and you can only get 2 per person every 30 days, and you need an override so you need to get a manager over to the pharmacy since there are more coupons than items and it goes negative. It was free after using coupons but it didn't help bring up my order total.
 
The new essentials deal with Raisin Bran is pretty good if you print the AARP coupons (just google aarp coupons). Just a reminder, the Green Advantage Flyer expires Saturday, and also the diet Pepsi $1/1 PQ expires Saturday too. Today would be a good day to ask for a Poise raincheck if you've been unable to find this on the shelves the entire sale period, your store will probably do this for you if you've not abused this privilege in the past. I also found the sheet of Shopping spree coupons on a cardboard display near the front of the store. I don't see many deals with these yet, but we'll see what comes up in the next week since they expire shortly.
 
My store has also tightened up on enforcing all wording on the coupons. They only allow one Sundown coupon per transaction, only one seafood $2/2 coupon per order and only one Save A lot per household. This actually has helped because now there are vitamins in stock. Before there were never any. I would rather get one than none, so I'm cool with it. Anyway, my total was $72.64 before coupons and I paid $1.94, saving 97.33%.

Dieting Hurts

My stomach is growling with hunger. I ate a good breakfast of oatmeal with cinnamon apples. And I had a banana for a snack. And some melon and strawberries as another snack. But my morning commute on the bicycle makes me really hungry. My metabolism is higher all day long. And makes my stomach hurt. I am craving carbohydrates, and those couple bottles of water just aren't making me feel full or satisfied. I want some bread or crackers, but my lunch will offer no relief with just a salad and yogurt packed in my bag.
 
I have a snack drawer here in my desk with cereal bars, snack bars and protein bars that I am resisting. It is to prove to myself that losing weight is not easy. It takes a lot of will power to stick with it. I know a 120 calorie snack bar won't make or break my efforts, but its the point. You should know and feel if you are dieting. If you are hungry, or exhausted at night and fall asleep in one minute, or your muscles are tight, or your ischial tuberosity is sore from the bike saddle - these are gentle reminders from your body to your brain that "Hey, I know what you're doing and it hurts".
 
The effort to lose weight is tough if you're doing it the right way, with proper nutrition and exercise. Do you eat breakfast everyday, at home? If not, you're probably overweight or have unhealthy issues. Do you prepare your own lunch? If not, its probably out of box or a restaurant meal and you're probably overweight or have health issues. Do you exercise at least thirty minutes every other day? If not, you probably are overweight or have health issues. These are three simple things that are frugal and will lead you to a healthier lifestyle, where you can control your weight.
 
But it won't be easy. It will take some effort on your part - you have to wake up earlier to make breakfast. You need to prepare your lunches ahead of time which requires planning, time and effort. Exercising is the easiest of all to fit in. Just slip on a pair of walking shoes and head out the door for 15 minutes, twice a day on your break at work. Or park in the back of the parking lot at the store. Take the stairs instead of elevator.

So, I sit here and my stomach still hurts, but my jeans are looser. Only a few more minutes to lunch time. I think I can do it.

The Incomplete Stockpile


I'm loving the $2 off $2 Publix Seafood coupon this week. I even went recycling on Monday night to get a few extra coupons. We've been getting 1/4 lb of the $7.99 scallops or shrimp each per trip and last night decided to have a seafood dinner. Remember when our freezer quit a couple weeks ago? That was where all the Buitoni noodles were frozen and apparently we threw ALL of them away. I thought for sure we stashed a few in our other freezers or the fridge but last night I could not find a single package of those darn noodles. But the great thing is they're on BOGO sale this week and I actually have the accompanying coupons so for $0.15 a package I could get some more. Except they're such a good deal the shelves are empty. I did get a rain check but, back to the dinner dilemma - no noodles.
 
But I do have some Knorr noodles in my stockpile, but not two packages of the same flavor. And silly me I didn't get a single one last week when they were BOGO with the PQ to make it a good deal. And the Uncle Bens rice we have is a year expired so we tossed that. So we had no rice. I didn't want to use Muellers pasta with the fresh pasta cause I didn't want to make a cream sauce and I wasn't in the mood for Red Sauce. We finally made some Green Giant seasoned broccoli, Buitoni mushroom ravioli with mustard sauce, and sauteed the shrimp and scallops with garlic, butter and bay seasoning.
 
It was a great meal, but it made me aware of the holes in my stockpile. It really sucks to have tons of food but not what you need. How does that happen to a stockpiler? It usually doesn't, but when it does - it needs to be a wake up call. It seems like the $2 coupons are starting up again at Publix so I'll have to round out my stockpile with some products like rice, noodles, sauce mixes and frozen vegetables.
 
How is your stockpile? If you're not sure exactly what you have it may be time to do an inventory and toss expired stuff and make a list of items to put on future shopping trips.

My Publix Trip - Saved 97%


The store was pretty picked over tonight. I did manage to find some Nutri Grain bars to use the new $1/2 printable to get overage. However, the coupon doesn't scan for whatever reason and therefore was scrutinized and discovered that it states limit 4 like coupons so I had to pull one back and only use 4. My special order of Poise did not come in again but the manager said he would initial the coupons so I could use them after the sale when the warehouse starts to fill orders again. Next week I'm going to start trying to get multiple rainchecks for the coupons because I know they'll never have more than a few in at any one time - The end of this deal is March 1.
 
So this trip I got our salad stuff and a couple other BOGO items. No freezer stuff allowed since our freezer died this week and we've been eating Steamfresh and Mr's Pauls trying to make room for our upcoming Zaycon order of chicken breasts in a month. I think we're going to try to just manage with out getting another freezer unless its a deal on Craigslist. The little compact freezers are just not worth repairing when you can buy a new one cheaper than a repair job cost.
 
Anyway, good luck on finding what you want this week. I think I'm getting a little burned out now that the weather is nice, it's just nicer to do other things besides scour the deals, cut coupons and shop all the time.
