I wasn't too excited about this week at Publix. Mainly the dog food, because I needed it. And then I get home and find a Target $2/1 printable. Drat! I could've made that deal even better! (Since I didn't have the $3.50 printable, I've used those up, so I was using a $3/1 printable from HERE). I did find 4 bags of charcoal, so I used a raincheck on that to get some things we needed.

Did two transactions and was able to use two $5/$25 comp. q's on the second since it was way over $50. :) They didn't make me break it all up into separate transactions. I already had the one figured out so I left it and used a $4/40 Food Lion Cat.

  1. Wonderful trip! Don't fret about the dog food Target Q. It is only for Purina One, which is a bit pricey.

  2. nice work I'm off to hcw to find out where you got the ritz bits Q! lol

  3. So I went to the Purina site to get the $3 coupon, I don't see it anywhere. I signed up for a quote and never saw it. What am I missing? Thanks.

  4. Margery- thanks! I didn't see that. That makes me feel better! :)

    Cheap- Those q's were from the first batch of Kraft printables released a few months ago. Most of them expired already, but the smartsource ones have a 8/31 expiration. I was saving them in hopes of some bogos! :)

    Shannon- sorry! On that second page, there is a box that says "offer code" enter the code B3KCA and then select one of the options and "save and email quote". When they email it to you, there will be a link for a $3 coupon. HTH!!

  5. I need some of the .99 cat foods. There was only like one other thing I was wanting but can't remember what it is now. Definately not an exciting week at Publix for me.

  6. The target Q is for Purina ONE dog food so it wouldn't have worked for the Beneful anyway.

  7. Ha, you can't beat getting beer free by buying your weekly groceries. I know you husband must love your couponing!

  8. You are my new hero this week :)

  9. Amelia- yep, he gets really excited when I can "work it into" the deals. :)

    Candi- thanks!
