Teaching My Kids at Publix and Saving 81%!

I actually took the whole family shopping with me today! I would give the boys an assignment and they would go with dad to find it. I let them pick what they wanted from the bakery since I had a $2.50 off $10 coupon from Kroger. My 8-yr-old actually paid attention this time to the screen as we checked out and was announcing to all that could hear him about the money we were saving. It was fun and hopefully a learning experience for the kids. Here is what we purchased:

That's just fantastic. I'm going for those washable markers tomorrow (wink).

Dr. Mom, can you post the link to that milk Q please (when you have a moment)?

LA girl said...

Was that the coupon from coupons.com that had to be printed in June?

Dr. Mom said...

I got it from Attention Target Shoppers and printed it several days ago. Here is the link http://attentiontargetshoppers.blogspot.com/2009/06/value-of-zip-code.html.

However, when I was typing up this post I looked at the fine print of the other one that I printed and it appears that it is not supposed to be used in TN. Oops.

Great job! You know, I have some milk coupons for Horizon that have not to be used in TN in the fine print either. I wonder why? Something about the dairy laws here I think. Weird.

Hey, you know if you go to coupons. com and put in the zip 19543 a coupon should pop up for $2 off Listerine. When you actually print this coupon, in the fine print it says that you can use it for Reach Floss. Combine that with your Summer Savings q for Floss and you get $1.51 overage! :)
