I can not believe that it is already August. This summer has come and gone so quickly! This week, we had the pleasure of watching a four month old Golden Retriever Puppy. She was the absolute sweetest thing. While she definitely added more work to our daily routines, she was a fun addition and she made the week absolutely fly by.
Today I went to Publix thinking that they would be out of Smucker’s Uncrustables. You all know that I have been posting about this deal for a week now so I assumed you all would have beat me to them. Well, I was pleasantly surprised to see that I was able to use all 8 of my coupons! We will probably go through one box in our house but we have friends with 5 kids so I have a good home to send the remaining seven boxes to Beyond that, today wasn’t a very exciting trip. Although, I was very excited about the green grapes I bought – they are super firm and perhaps the largest grapes I’ve ever bought. I was also happy with the fact that the cherries were again on sale for $1.99/lb. The asparagus was a last minute decision – it looked good and I thought it would be a great addition to the meal I’m preparing for dinner tonight.
I should note that hubby and I went shopping together so I split my purchase into two transactions so that he could use a $5/$30 Winn Dixie coupon and I could use a $5/$25 Save-a-Lot coupon.

My friend Kelly emailed me the picture above of the groceries she scored at Publix yesterday! She and I have been talking about how it is challenging to save money at Publix lately. Don’t get me wrong, the sales are still awesome. The problem is that the coupon matchups for the sales are sub par lately. Nonetheless, Kelly was able to spend just $15.23 on everything pictured and she saved $63.48! That is savings of 80.7%!
