20 lb. turkey for $1.81 – Publix deals

Here is my Publix trip from Friday.  I was super excited to use the $10 off any Turkey coupon as Publix had turkeys on sale for $0.59/lb. and had many Kraft items on BOGO as well.
Here is how my order broke down:
Total: $86.58
-$38.51 in coupons
I paid $48.07
The 20 lb. turkey was $11.81 so after $10 coupon I only paid $1.81 for it.
The 12 Kraft items I bought were:
  • 4 Cool whip – BOGO at $0.83/ea = $3.32
  • 6 Cream cheese – $1.25/ea. = $7.50
  • 2 Ritz crackers  BOGO at $1.54 ea. = $3.08 (-$1.00/2 coupon)
So the turkey plus 12 Kraft products at sale price were $25.71 – I paid $14.71.  Since I would have bought those Kraft items anyways the $10 turkey coupon was a great deal for me.  I just might go back and buy another one tomorrow. :)

Are you shopping on Black Friday?

The countdown is on!!  2 weeks from today is the BIGGEST shopping day of the year! :)  My excitement is growing rapidly and I am already working on my list and plan for the day.  Or maybe the night??  Not too sure about this whole all the stores are opening at midnight thing – but an all-nighter shopping trip does sound a little exciting! :)

I follow this great site – bfads.net – that releases the ad details and even scans of the ads as soon as they are available.  You can already see Wal-mart, Target, Best Buy, Kohls, and many more and start working on your list and strategy for the day (or night?)   Sign up for their emails or like them on facebook to get the details as soon as they are released.

Are you braving the stores this year or waiting for Cyber Monday to shop in your pajamas?  :)

My Publix shopping trip + new series

Publix is having a pretty good sale this week with lots of baking supplies!  (Check out Southern Savers Publix list for extensive details.) 


Here is my shopping trip from this evening:

Total: $57.05

- $23.85 in coupons

I paid $33.20  (savings of 41%)

Price I paid after coupons:

  • Ricola cough drops – FREE @ coupon (actually gave me 10¢ overage on each bag)
  • Betty Crocker brownie mix – $1.02
  • Nestle cookie dough – $0.82
  • Nestle chocolate chips – $1.07
  • Domino sugar – $0.49

Now while some of you might be amazed that I saved that much with coupons or that I saved that percentage off my bill (and yes, I am thankful for those savings), I am not quite as thrilled as you may think. 

You see, for the last 2 years I have paid $0.25/bag for Nestle Morsels, $0.50/package for cookie dough, and got brownie mixes for FREE or less than $0.50.  So these prices (although good and the best I have seen in many months) are much more than I am used to paying.  And I have spent $33 of my $40 weekly budget and still have some things I want to stock up on at Kroger during their Mega sale this week.

In light of that, I am introducing a new series –

“How to save $ when grocery prices go up … and coupon deals slow down”

I have been noticing again and again, over the last few months, that grocery prices are on the rise, shelves are empty more than they are full, coupon values are going down, store policies are getting tighter, and coupons just don’t seem to be as good.  Therefore, resulting in higher prices even for an avid couponer like me. :)

But there are some ways we can deal with it and still save money!  I hope to share some of these ideas with you over the next few weeks. 

And I would love to hear how you are dealing with the rising prices and slower deals – leave a comment or email me at centsiblesavings@yahoo.com.  I might just use your suggestion or comment in a future post.

Earn more swagbucks with swagbucks tv


I am looking forward to doing some Christmas shopping with my Amazon gift cards that I earned for FREE with swagbucks.  (New to swagbucks?  check out my Swagbucks 101 series here.)

Looking to earn some more swagbucks?  You can earn a lot by watching Swagbucks TV!

Here's the basic rundown of how Swagbucks TV works:

-Go to swagbucks.com (signup for an account if you haven’t already) – then click on “Swagbucks TV” on the left hand side.

- Choose something to watch from the thousands of videos available in categories like Entertainment, Food, Fashion & Beauty and Homes & Gardens - each channel features content from different providers and can educate and entertain you while you earn.

- As you watch videos, the SBTV meter at the top right of the screen fills up.  After 10 videos, it will reach 100% and you will earn 3 Swag Bucks, with an overall cap of 150 Swag Bucks each day.

- You can share the videos with friends, and the link you send is referral enabled, which means it also serves as a way to get new referrals to Swagbucks!

Here’s a tip – whenever you are on the computer (even right now!), you could have a video playing in the background.  I spend a good bit of time online – researching deals, blogging, checking facebook or email, etc.  All during that time, I try to remember to keep a video playing and when it stops, click over and start another one.  Without much extra effort and no additional time, you could earn a nice quantity of swagbucks depending on how much time you spend on the computer!

So head over and start a video while you are catching up on the deals and printing coupons. Smile

Kroger mega sale: $0.29 cream soups, $1.49 sugar, $2.99/lb. of cheese


Kroger is on the second week of one of their mega sales (Buy 10 items, get $5 off at checkout – basically giving you an additional 50¢ off each item)

Campbell’s Cream of Mushroom or Chicken Soup - 49¢ after mega savings

Use $0.40/4, $0.30/4, or $0.25/4 coupon from 9/18 SS

Or use $1.00/5 printable coupon

Makes it 29¢ after coupon!

Domino Granulated Sugar, 4 lb bag, - $2.49 after mega savings
Use $0.50/1 coupon from 8/28 RP

Makes it $1.50/1 after coupon

Also my store had the Kroger brand 16 oz. blocks of cheese on sale for $2.99 (usually $6.99!).  I have not seen any great cheese prices lately, so $1.50/8 oz. is a decent price right now.  (The current price at Kroger is $2.29 for 8 oz. and Aldi is right at $2.00/8 oz. too.)

There are TONS of more deals, check out Southern Savers coupon matchups for the rest.

Coupon for $5 off $30 at ALDI


I think I shocked my husband as we were riding to church last night and I was going through my paper when I squealed out loud when I saw this coupon!  On the front of the Aldi ad there was a coupon for $5 off a $30 purchase at Aldi (good through 11/19)!  Aldi does not accept manufacturer coupons, but will take Aldi coupons although they rarely, if EVER, issue store coupons!

So check your paper again (and make sure to check for the FREE coffee and Huggies coupons too) to see if your Aldi ad has the coupon.  It was in the AJC and for the Atlanta area so I am not sure if this is only local for the Atlanta area or not.

You can view the Aldi ad with the printable coupon on their site (change to your location), but I am not sure if they would accept a printable copy of that coupon.


If you are headed to Aldi, check out some of their reduced prices – Butter for $1.99/lb, 3 lb. bag of apples for $1.99 and more!

Check your newspaper–FREE bag of coffee coupon + Huggies coupons

I posted this on facebook earlier, but I didn’t want those of you not on facebook to miss it.

Make sure to check your newspaper from yesterday for a coupon for a FREE bag of Community coffee in the actual paper.  For me it was on page A23 of the AJC (Atlanta Journal Constitution).  But there are reports of other people finding it in other papers – check this post for details.

Also, my paper had a single page flyer from Wal-mart with Huggies coupons on the back – they are manufacturer coupons so could be used anywhere.  The Huggies coupons were for the boxes but the Pull-ups coupon doesn’t specify a size so could be used on any size (except trial).

*HOT coupon - $1.50 off ONE Kraft cheese


Print a coupon for $1.50/1 8 oz. package of Kraft cheese.  This coupon won’t last long, so hurry and print it if you want it.  (Should make for very cheap cheese – $0.50 or less.)
