3 Myths to Saving on Groceries That Cost You! - Southern Savers

Preach it!

That’s how you don’t it!

Oy, Busy Birfday Week, Time for Music

Been doing some stuff. Not couponing. The one thing I might try to squeeze in before the new ads start at drugstores tomorrow is a gift card deal at Walgreens:

If you buy two $25 iTunes gift cards, you’ll get a $10 Wags card as well. However you coupon-math it, you’re getting $10 freeeee off of the $50 you shell out. Good, right? I’m thinking it over. Shelling out anything over $10 is pretty unlikely for me, but I just might. 

sometimes i get drunk enough to be, like, i probably shouldn’t light a bunch of candles in my house right now. you know what i mean, internet? 

Freedom Isn’t Free

I’m rarely on top of the “Free Friday Download!” Kroger ecoupons, just because my Kroger emails go to my hotmail address, and who checks their hotmail address these days? I use my phone to load ecoupons to my card, usually while I’m wandering around the store in the middle of the night.

Anyway, today I happened to be on top of it, and it’s not a bad one:

Free Liberté yogurt! Reason enough to stroll through Kroger in the next few weeks, huh? With the Free Friday ecoupons, you have to load it to your card today (online or through the app), but the coup is valid for a few weeks. *.*

What a beautiful day to run out of gas because you left your wallet at home!

New report confirms Metro Atlanta as leader in sprawl

A report released today from Smart Growth America calls Metro Atlanta the most sprawling large metro in the US. This confirms that, despite the strides in good urbanism happening all over the region in pockets, there’s a major uphill battle in the long run due to the sprawling development…

In your face, coupons!

I stacked rebate offers from ibotta, Checkout 51, and Shopmium at Publix tonight to get even better deals on some BOGO items, so I’m getting an extra $5 back from my $12 grocery bill.

Triscuits, on sale for $2.25, Checkout 51 offer for $1.00 —> $1.25.
Honey Maid grahamfuls, on sale for $2.10, $1.00 from CO 51 —> $1.10.
Belvita Soft Baked biscuits, on sale for $2.50 with one CO 51 offer for $0.50, one ibotta offer for $0.75, and one Shopmium offer for $1.00 off two —> $1.38 each.

The Smuckers was $3.49, but there was a hang tag on it for $1 off, and a Shopmium deal for $1.00, so I scored it for $1.49!

This is excellent, and I think that Americans are animal-protein-obsessed, but also… do you even know how much broccoli you would have to eat to hit 100 calories?
To put it differently, do you even know how much more broccoli you get to eat than you would be able to eat of the beef?
100 calories is less than three ounces of lean beef, and over three cups of chopped, raw broccoli.

Kroger by Fives

There’s a Mega Savings Event at Kroger this week—btw, Kroger ad weeks start on Wednesday errrwhere now—and it includes a handful of “natural”/”healthy”/straight up organic products. The Mega Event is basically for $5 off 5 products, and you can mix and match across all the participating products. High five!

image

Still, I have plenty of food here and I’m not looking to stock up on anything in particular right now (read: I have a two month supply of coffee and almond milk). Then I got this text from friend Genius: “almond breeze is $1.99 at kroger if you buy five and there’s a blinkie.”

A blinkie! All I needed was the slightest urging, nay, the slightest mention. Off to Krogs!

Upon arrival at this specific Kroger (I didn’t have any of my own coups for Almond Breeze, so I went to the Kroger in question in search of the magical coupon dispenser known as the blinkie for its occasional blinking red light). I picked up other items that would match with the Mega Event, so I wasn’t even planning to get more than three almond milks. 

Then I went nuts and found other things and it was midnight and I was just loving the hell out of Kroger so I bought a ton of shit. 

image yeah, i know it wasn’t the plan, but give me a minute to explain… there were deals!

First, the orderly results of my Mega Event participation… times three:

image

Each item had its price listed, then the price it would become if purchased with other participating items in the Mega Event, e.g., Almond Breeze was $2.99, but $1.99 in multiples of five. I used five blinkies for $0.55 off each = $1.44 per carton.

Cascadian Farm granola, priced at $2.99—>$1.99 for the sale, and there was an ibotta offer for $1.00 off, so I basically got it for $0.99

Kashi cereals were $2.99—> $1.99, plus there is a Kroger ecoupon for $1.00/2, so I got them for $1.49 each. 

Kashi crackers and cookies, $2.49—> $1.49.

Belvita Soft Baked Breakfast Biscuits were $3.39—> $2.39, but there was an ibotta deal for $0.75 off AND a Checkout 51 deal for $0.50 off (I love how you can stack those), so I got them for $1.14.

Arnold bread, $2.99—> $1.99.

…and the Imagine vegetarian broth, originally $2.49 but $1.49 as part of the Mega Event. I’m thinking about going back to Kroger to get a bunch more of these, but I don’t have a ton of cabinet space left, and truthfully how much am I going to make soup and risotto in the next year? 

OK, now here’s the other stuff I coup’d!
