I have found the joy of ordering coupons online. There are several places that have this service available but I have been getting mine from Coupons and Things by Dede. My coupons are send out quickly and as long as I order them early enough, I get them by the weekend. This has been helpful with Publix deals that I really want to get.

Today I made my Publix run. I don't usually have my stuff ready in order to go before the weekend so I try to go on Monday or Tuesday. Lucky for me, in Georgia, the Publix sales go from Thursday until Wednesday. The times I have gone on Wednesdays though, I have found that they are out of several things.

Today I got several really good deals that are brag-worthy! Dove deoderant was buy one, get one free (BOGO) for 2.29 which made them about 1.14/each. I had $1 coupons so final cost for those were 14 cents EACH!!

9 Lives cat food was also BOGO, each bag was about 1.99; after my coupon they were 99 cents!!

My favorite was the Hidden Valley Dressing. They were BOGO making each bottle 1.69/each. I had $2 off coupons (ordering extra for the deal) meaning that Publix PAID ME to take home the dressing!! Gotta love better than free!

Other things I got today:
4 boxes of Cheerios
4 boxes of Trix
2 boxes of Cocoa Puffs
2 boxes of Special K w/berries
15 boxes of Pop Tarts
6 bags of 8 o'clock coffee
6 bags of Tyson breaded chicken
4 boxes of Jimmy Dean breakfast sandwiches
4 jars of Peter Pan peanut butter
6 packs of Pillsbury ready to bake cookies

Total before coupons/sales: 253.41

Total out of pocket: 80.80 (a little more than usual but that is OK...)

Total Savings: 172.61 or 68 percent!
