Shopping Trips

Yesterday when Jim got home from work, I immediately left for a quick trip to Publix. It wasn't a great week at Publix and my coupon savings amounted to only about $15. (I guess every little bit helps.) They were out of several things I went for so I thought I would try again today.
While I was in Easley, I decided since it K-Mart was having a spectacular double coupon even (double coupons up to $2), I would check in and see what they had. It turned out to be a great trip.

18 Qt. Rubbermaid Box
Lever 2000 6 pack
Red Turtleneck (for MC)
3 tubes of Colgate Kids Toothpaste
1 Kids Colgate Dora Toothbrush
2 Bags of Ricola Cough Drops
2 Bottles of Gilette Shampoo
2 bottles of Sunsilk Shampoo
2 bottles of Sunsilk Conditioner
2 boxes of Ziploc Sandwich Bags
1 Jumbo Pull ups

Total = $60.96 OOP= $30.12

Then this morning, my 2nd trip to Publix was pretty good.
1 box of NY Garlic Breadsticks
2 bottles of Crisco EVOO
5 cans of Pillsbury Crescents
6 cans of Pillsbury Pizza Crusts
Total= $26..83 OOP = $15.11 Plus, I will send in my receipt for a $10 Publix Gift Card

To make my trip extra special, IHOP is right beside Publix and Maci Clare and I stopped in for free pancakes. YUMMY! And it was to benefit a great cause (Children's Miracle Network).

I told you I wanted to change my Monday routine to include Publix and HL, so I started that last week. I did awesome there both weeks and I did soooo awesome at KMart on Sunday afternoon, too:) I knew about the pancakes at IHOP today, but decided to go ahead and take Karson yesterday to avoid the crowd, and he had a program at school tonight and they practiced several times during school today and I didn't want him to miss!
Work on that coffee date - if MC would be happy at McD's or CFA, so would I!
And as if I have not already written a book here, I just wanted to say that I have not been to WM in 3 weeks:) YAY!

I just haven't been up to the coupon thing lately :-( I even skipped triples at Bloom (shame on me!)Glad you did well at KMart! And free pancakes too? Super!

Thanks for leaving me a comment. I just had to tell you, my hubby HATES onions with a passion! Know what I do? I put the onion in a blender with the tomato sauce that goes into the meat and blend, blend, blend! He never knows it's there but it adds SO much flavor!
