Save-a-dime: PUBLIX 9/2/15

I was not feeling well today. And it is the last day of this ad, so I rounded up my coupons and the list and sent Hubby to Publix and as he walked out the door, I reminded him to ask for his
Senior discount !
5% helps save some dimes.

What he bought was 8 bags of frozen Birdseye Steam fresh veggies
2 packs of Ball Park Franks
4 Jars of Vlasic Pickles
2 boxes of Luzianne tea
2 bottles of Wishbone Dressing
2 cartons of Mayfield Ice Cream
1 pack of hot dog buns
2 cans of Beef Ravioli

Total before coupons and sale prices 72.60  savings with coupons and sales 50.68 out of pocket 21.92
He also brought home 4 rain checks.  Never forget  your rain checks. Because they will restock and you will get the lowest price.
 So tomorrow I will see what I can save at Kroger.
Oh and teach your Hubby to coupon it really helps to have someone to go pick up the deals when you are feeling under the weather.
The cashier was impressed that a man was using coupons. LOL

This is a rant. I don't think I have ever done a rant on this blog.
 I feel the time has come.
I was in my local Khol's store today. Just checking out the clearance and passing some time. I began to talk to one of the ladies working there. She was checking on a price for me. We began to talk about things like insurance and retirement. 
    When she mentioned  that they had been told, this company will no longer give the employees any paid vacations or personal time with pay. I don't even work there and this makes me upset. Some times I feel this country is going backwards.
   I know some of you are saying well she should quit and get another job. I don't think she should have to quit and find another job. When people work hard for a company they should get something for there efforts. 
     I will no longer be shopping there. This store charges top dollar for the products they sell. They should treat their workers with some dignity. I have worked over 45 years at many different jobs. Some not paying much, Other paying more. But never once did I have a job that didn't at least give a one week vacation or paid personal time. This is not the Eighteen Hundreds or early Nineteen Hundreds.
  When people had to start unions just to be treated fairly. 
Come on Kohl's you can do better than that, for the people who keep your stores running.
Until you do I won't give you any of my hard earned dollars. 
I would like to know how you readers feel about this.  
These are my feelings, based on the conversation I had with the store associate.

Subtotal on this deal was 74 cents. I got back the $3.00 extra care bucks.
Retail before sale would have been $22.00.

Still saving dimes at Rite Aid

Go to to print out coupons for $1.00 off 3 boxes of Kleenex.

Back to Rite-Aid to work out a monthly deal. This transaction is a little more work but well worth the effort. So remember I will be using my $12.00 dollars in rewards from yesterday. The monthly deal on this item is to spend 30.00 and get back $10.00. There is also Catalina's printing when you buy 8 boxes you earn a $2.00 Catalina. I printed 2 of the $1.00 of 3 coupons from and I had 5 of the 50 cents off 3 boxes coupons from the Sunday papers. I will be breaking this into 3 transaction so I can earn my $6.00 in Catalina's along with my 10.00 in rewards. Oh these tissues are on sale for BOGO this week. These 3 transactions will track on my loyalty card. Transaction 1 8 boxes with coupons and rewards out of pocket  was 1.71. I also got back a $2.00 Catalina. Remember I am only paying for 4 boxes four are free. I repeat this transaction and get back another Catalina for $2.00.
In the last transaction I will purchase 10 boxes paying for 5. (BOGO) 
I earn another $2.00 Catalina and a $10.00 dollar reward. This is $65.00 worth of Kleenex. 
My out of pocket on this after coupons & rewards came $17.81, 65.00-17.81=50.19 that is a savings of $50.19. I left the store with $6.00 in Catalina's and a 10.00 reward. Now if you remember I started this week with  $12.00 in rewards. I made them grow, now with the $6.00 in Catalina's and the $10.00 in rewards I am working with $16.00 of store money for the next deal I find. Stay tuned to see what that will be. 
Yes I know 26 boxes is a whole bunch of Kleenex. My son and I where both sick at the same time last month. We used up 10 boxes in less than 2 weeks. That is why I am stocking up while the price is right. So I won't be paying full price when we need it. You could do this deal twice if you have enough coupons sadly I did not. 
PS. the Rite Aid's in the Stockbridge -Mcdonough Ga. area have  all Christmas Clearance 75 percent off if you need anything now is the time to check it out.

I started my retirement with the Flu. I have had 3 weeks of just awful. Yesterday I got up and made a trip to Rite Aid.

My  best deals there so far this week began with the Deal on Max-Freeze it was on page 4 of their weekly ad. It is normally $9.99 at my store. On sale for $5.00 limit one.(Good Price) I started this week out with $12.00 in Rewards from last week. So of course I picked up the Max-Freeze. On page 12 the Colgate Total is on sale for $2.99 on the 5.8 oz size limit 2 there are 50 cents coupons for those of you that have been getting the Sunday papers. Making them 2.49 the best part is you earn a $2.00 ups on each one.
I used part of my $12.00 rewards from last week to pay for these items.
 I earned back
 back $9.00 in rewards.
A dollar or less, Free is best. We have 2 Rite Aid cards. The next day my hubby repeated this transaction. Using coupons and rewards and he also got back $9.00 in rewards. So by rolling my rewards from day to day my out of pocket was sales tax. And I still have 12.00 in rewards for tomorrow.

Coupons and Stockpiles go hand in hand.
A good coupon-er always  buys more than they will need, this will be the start of a stockpile for your family.

Please buy what your family uses. Then when the 85 inches of snow falls on your town you will look in your pantry, a smile will come across your lips, because you won't need to go out and fight for water, milk eggs  and bread.

A well stocked pantry can be a stress relief when faced with an emergency.

                                                       December is almost here.
I wish we would get a little snow this year.
Living in the South, I don't see scenes like this often.
What's the weather like for you?

If you are just starting down the coupon path to saving dimes. Please check out

This girl is fun to watch. Has great information. And she helps me save lots of dimes
. You can find her on Pinetrest too.


Am I the only one who feels Kroger let us down, When they stopped doubling coupons? Did they not say their prices would be lower?
 Okay so when do the lower prices start?
I shopped with Kroger every week for 35 years. Now sad to say, I pick up prescriptions there. And every once in a while I might pick up something if I have a great coupon and they have a great sale. Not to many great sales of late.
 So now I heart Publix.
 Kroger why do you forsake all your Crazy coupon ladies?


 This is my 1st transaction this week. I am starting the week with $9.00 in rewards

and 3 $5.00 dollar off 3 coupons for Pantene Pro-V Fine Hair Solutions Shampoo, Flat to Volume, 12.6 oz.I will buy nine of these which will make my $30.00 if you buy $30.00 you get $10.00 back in rewards. I will pay $6.00 out of pocket and get $10.00 back in Rewards. Money maker I will use the $10.00 dollar reward tomorrow, on transaction 2. You always want to get rewards back on everything you purchase.

Swag Bucks ! It's like finding free cash....
