Reaping Your Harvest

Posts Tagged ‘9/30

I was feeling a bit saddened on today due to several things going on, so in efforts to give myself a kick, I decided to grab a stash of coupons and head on out to a few stores. All of the items pictured below were purchased between 5 stores (2 Publix, 2 Rite-Aid, & Wal-Mart). I left the house with $50 in cash…came back home with over $32 in cash and $10 in UP+ Rewards.

So what did we do with all of these items?

Hubby and I divided it up into four (4) households, including our own.


Fellow reader, Margaret, wanted to know if I thought the $0.85 deal on the Coke products at Family Dollars this week was a good deal, with the in-ad coupon.

Whenever, I see deals such as this, I immediately being to think on current sales elsewhere. This isn’t done to deter me from purchasing those products at the particular store, only as a means to allow me to see how much more, if any, I can get for my money.

In this case, I see that Publix has the 2L Pepsi Products on sale this week 5/$5. Now although each bottle is $0.15 more than the Coke products at Family Dollars, take a look at how, when using coupons properly, you can further stretch your dollar.


(5) Pepsi, 2L Products, 5/$5
(6) Hamburger Helpers, BOGO, $1.59
(2) Pledge Wipes, BOGO, $3.99
(4) Halls Cough Drops, BOGO, $1.69
(6) Progresso Soup, BOGO, $2.29
(2) Shedd’s Country Crock, BOGO, $1.89
(2) Crystal Light Drink Mix, BOGO, $4.69
(2) Old El Paso Dinner Kits, BOGO, $2.95


(1) $5/$25 Rite-Aid Purchase (PRINT)
(2) $0.75/3 Hamburger Helper (PRINT)
(3) $1/2 Hamburger Helper (Rite Aid Vid. Val. Q)
(1) $2/2 Pledge Products, 9/26 SS
(1) $2/2 Pledge Products (TARGET Q)
(2) BOGO Halls Products (MFQ within Rite-Aid Sales Ad, 9/26-10/2)
(4) $0.50/1 Halls (Rite-Aid Vid. Val. Q)
(2) $1/3 Progresso Soup, Better At Home Booklets
(3) $1/2 Progresso Soup (Rite-Aid Vid. Val. Q) *same coupon with Hamburger Helper & Granola Bar on it
(2) $1/1 Crystal Light Drink Mix (PRINT) OR $1.50/1 Crystal Light Tearpad, 12qt.
(2) $1.50/1 Crystal Light (PUBLIX) *was available last week on Publix Kraft site
(2) $0.50/1 Old El Paso Products (PRINT)

Subtotal (Pre-tax): $33.44
Total OOP (After Coupons): $4.25-$5.25 plus tax (depends upon Crystal MFQ used)

Now if Margaret goes to Family Dollars to purchase 5 of the 2L Coke products, she would pay $4.25 plus tax OOP….but that would be all she would get. For the same price, or a $1 more, she could go to Publix, work the scenario above and pay roughly the same amount of money OOP for her beverages, simply a different brand, however, in addition to the five (5) sodas, she would also walk away with 24 additional items to put in her stock pile for another rainy day.

Worked it out? Please feel free to come back and share your experiences.

Remember, this is only an idea as to how you can do more with less, or with the funds you were already planning on using. These deals can always be adjusted to fit the needs of your family. Simply allow this to act as a tool of guidance.

Reaping In Abundance,

Penny The penny item for TODAY ONLY (Wed., 9/29 or Thurs. 9/30) is:

Publix White Bread -thanks Maleca

The coupon will not be located within the Sunday’s ad, but within the Wednesday newspaper. FL does not participate in this promotion.

For those shopping at the Dorchester Rd. store, these coupons are provided at the register for those meeting the qualifications.

The last time we posted about the Martha Stewart Do-It-Herself Workshop it was over. This time around we are posted it much sooner for all those who were interested in attending. Note that the first 30 individuals to register will receive a FREE project organizer.

Over the past week I’ve been heavily in the “do-it-herself” mode…painting and out in the yard. It’s been rather relaxing to get away from everything else and do some that allowed my mind to refocus and get renewed.

I encourage each of you to register NOW before spots fill up.

Just wanted to alert you to the newest $5/$25 Rite-Aid coupon. I’ve updated the sidebar under the $X/$XX printable coupons for easier access.

I apologize for posting this so late. Haven’t been feeling too well but still wanted to get on here and share this breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert deal with all of you. Remember, this is only a guide…shop according to the deal or substitute the items that fits your family’s needs.

Huge thanks to Maleca, Ms. Carolyn, & Andreas for alerting me to the Better at Home booklets (This deal is dedicated to each of you!). A lot of the coupons needed for this deal can be found within these booklets! If you have not been able to locate them throughout the store, please head over to customer service as a lot of them have resorted to placing them behind the desk. Happy Shopping!

Catrina and I love our mock coupon trainings that we try to do at each workshop. The idea is to present a few items with possible coupons to use on them and you have to tell us which one(s) would reap you the best harvest. So, here are the best coupons to use for this deal. Post what you should pay using these AND/OR what you will pay according to the coupons you have available to work this deal.

Reaping In Abundance,

Kay n Hubby FL
Hello and welcome! I am a military spouse & mom of four boys and two girls, ages 1 to 10, oldest diagnosed with autism. We're located in the Charleston, SC area. My family and my faith are very important to me. Since I've started using coupons I have been able to save more money and become a better steward of my household. I hope to seed into the general public, and our military families, how to spend less and get more.

Get ready to take your grocery & household spending to a whole new level! Couponing is not only a means to seed but an avenue to harvest...both opportunities are endless & a joy to delight in.

I welcome feedback and comments! Thank you again!
