Reaping Your Harvest

Posts Tagged ‘scenario

Thanks, as always, to Michelle at I Heart Publix, for seeding into our lives through the usage of the matchups. Please visit her for the remaining of the sale’s ad.

We’ve been blessed to make it to another new sales week. With that comes another deal. For those of you who are new, please jump right on in and work out the following transaction with us. If there are items in which your family do not want/need, feel free to tailor to scenario based upon your specific needs. If you need assistance in doing so please leave a comment with your questions.

These scenarios are based on stores which offer the double coupon incentive and are created, solely, as a tool to help you further your savings…seeding to feed!

I’ve been hearing from some of you, that you are still not where you would like to be with this whole couponing concept. You are seeing some savings but would like to do better. The most common items I’ve seen sent to my inbox for stockpiling tips is on paper products.

As many of you already know, I DO NOT, under any circumstances, want to be in a position where my paper products are low, mainly my toilet tissue. I can almost work with the paper towel and paper plates not being as plentiful, but tissue HAS to be in a comfortable number range or I get those pre-couponing thoughts racing through my head when we were purchasing, at FULL price and as needed. Not a good place to be in when you have so many people in one home.

Even if it’s just you or you and your child(ren) or you and your significant other, toilet tissue is a must have. So what I propose is a turn back to the basics. For the next few weeks or so, we are all going to focus on creating a stockpile of toilet tissue and/or paper towels at a comfortable level for your family’s needs.

Each New Week, New Deal transaction I put up will focus on this item and you have the option of replacing it with paper towels or something else your family may stand in the need of, such as produce or milk.

I encourage EVERYONE to start getting multiples of coupons. Again, this will be based upon your family’s needs.

These scenarios can be worked in addition to your normal shopping trips, you’ll just add these items to go towards your stockpile without adding much to your regular budget. As the weeks go by, you will start seeing your budget reduce as you will no longer need to purchase some of the same items and/or you’ll be spending less out-of-pocket (OOP) on them through the use of sales and coupons.

***BLOGGERS: If you’re participating in the Publix Weekly Deal Scenarios, I ask that you please add the button above to your posts as this original concept was a creative idea by Reaping Your Harvest as a way to meet readers requests. I don’t mind others joining in, but because it took much work and prayer to come up with this idea, I feel it’s only fair to note where the idea originated.

Today was an extremely LONG day. SO much has been going on lately that I needed some time to think, and what better way to get the mind under control than shopping.

Here’s what we reaped:

I’ll work on the matchups and posting of the receipts for those interested…gotta get some sleep first though.

We absolutely loved this movie! I’m a huge Toy Story fan, so it was natural to assume that this would be at the top of my list of movies to watch.

Interested in watching with your family…well, let’s make sure you save a little while doing so.

Head on over HERE to print your $8/1 Toy Story DVD/Blu Ray Combo pack coupon. For those of you who are Disney Reward members, make sure you enter your movie code on the website, after purchasing to have access to the movie online. This is a great feature for us, as we enjoy watching movies while away on vacation, without the hassle of tagging along the DVD case.

There are a LOT of different scenarios out there geared towards you getting the best deal.

Collin, Hip2Save, has done a great job at putting them all together in place…take a peek.

My favorite:

::CVS (doesn’t require the above coupon)

Deal Scenario:
(Spend $25 on Select P&G products = $16 instant savings on Toy Story 3 DVD)
Buy Charmin bonus 16 pk (+ 4 double rolls free) $9.97
Bounty paper towels reg rolls 8 pk $6.97
Buy 6 Puffs reg or plus lotion 60-108 ct tissue $0.97 each = $5.82
Buy 3 Dawn 9.5-10.3 dish soap $0.97 = $2.91
Total now = $25.67
Plus, buy the Toy Story 3 DVD $19.99- $16 instant savings = $3.99
Total = $29.66
Use the $0.25/1 Charmin coupon from the 10/10 PG
Use the $0.50/1 Bounty coupon from the 10/31 PG
Use 3 $0.25/1 Dawn coupons from the Organize in Style coupon booklet
Final cost only $28.16 for ALL the above (Which includes the $19.99 Toy Story 3 DVD!)

…you know, I always have to look around for more coupons, so if you plan on doing the above transaction, here are a few coupons that I have on hand that would make this a little less OOP, if you also have them;

-use (3) $0.50/1 Dawn Renewal with Olay Dish Soap, 10/31 P&G (instead of the $0.25/1)
-use (4) $0.25/1 Puff Singles, 10/31 P&G *limit of 4 like coupons per trip per P&G new policy

CVS card holders, check those e-mails for your $4/$20 CVS purchase Q. One of our readers used her’s today at CVS to reap some really great items, and showed how you can spend less, while getting more!

Here’s Ms. Dee’s harvest:

There is a CVS store coupon on cvs.com for $1 on any GLADE relaxing moments product (9.7oz room spray, plugins scent oil refill, or 4oz jar candle).

i printed 4 cpns (on the home page click on in-store cpns, a new page will open and glade will be the first cpn. after you print the first time, click on store cpns and it will appear again until it reaches print limit).

this is what i got earlier today:

2 glade 4oz candles 2.50 ea
2 glade 9.7oz sprays 2.50 ea
1 starburst gummi snack .89
1 huggies pullups 8.99
4 mentos 1.79 bogo

used:

-$4/$20 cvs cpn
-.89 free starburst gummi snack (instant win from wrapper)
-(3) $1 mentos manf/cpns
-(4) $1 off glade rel/mom cvs cpns

-$1 off glade relaxing mom premium spray manf/cpn

yay!!

For those interested in working this same scenario, given you have the above coupons, be sure to visit Huggies Pull-ups site to print your coupons!

Absolutely great job! Thanks for sharing!

Have you taken advantage of the $8/1 Dulcolax Q located HERE? If not, now would be a great time to print as Rite-Aid currently has the 7 dose bottles priced at $7.99ea.

Scenario:

(2) Dulcolax, 7 dose, $7.99
-use (2) $8/1 Dulcolax (PRINT)
makes them free

These are being reported as the regular shelf price, so hold onto these, if you can for the new week scenario as a filler. If this is something you won’t be using, always a great thing to donate to someone who will.

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!
