Food Saver Cost Plus Meat Sale

Food Saver has boneless pork loin for $1.42 (1.29 +10%) per lb.  I have had it in the past, and it is really good.  I have also had the their butcher cut it up into stew meat and chops at no additional cost.  If you are looking for a good deal on meat, this is it!  This price is good through Sunday, March 3rd.

Saved 93% at Publix!

I actually just stopped in for a couple of deals when I realized that Progresso Beans were BOGO, and there were Publix coupons at the front of the store.  This made them less than what you would pay at Aldi, and it is one of our staples!  Fortunately, I had a Kroger $5 off of $50 coupon in my purse!  Just FYI, this sale ends tomorrow.

I think it should have been two dollars more and the cashier may have rung up inaccurately.  Since I generally don't go back to have items fixed on my receipt when I am over charged, I figure it evens out in the end.

Super Doubles Begins at Harris Teeter Tomorrow!

Get your high dollar coupons ready for Harris Teeter's Super Doubles which begins tomorrow and lasts for a week!  They will double any coupon up to $2.  Keep in mind you can only use 20 coupons per day that will double (otherwise any other coupons will be deducted at face value).  Also you can only use two printable coupons of the same kind or three manufacturer coupons of the same kind.  However, you can use three manufacturer and two printables for five of the same product.  Be on the lookout for blinkies from other stores - these often make for the best deals.  For instance, Publix currently has a blinkie for .70/1 Friendship Cottage Cheese which makes the individual 5 oz serving at HT free.

Saving over 85% at Publix & Harris Teeter

There are some great deals this week! There was a lady behind me at Publix who was amazed at the final price. She asked if I did this well every week and it was nice to respond, "Most of the time." It took me about an hour to plan these two trips but considering I saved about $140 between the two, it is time well spent. I stock up on what is on sale each week. Eventually everything goes on sale so I have quite a variety of items.  It is then that you plan meals around what you have.  Guess what my kids will be taking to lunch for the next few weeks?

Link Love: Tennessee Trails Association

Do you like to hike?  Tennessee has some of the most beautiful trails I have ever seen.  It's funny that when you have the opportunity to travel and see the world, you realize how very lucky you are to live in the area that you live with its incredible beauty.  So when I found this site, Tennessee Trails Association, which has many planned trail hikes and is very inexpensive to join, I thought I would share.  Check out their planned schedule of events
