Southern Savers

I wanted to pass along a wonderful couponing blog. It is www.southernsavers.com and I have found so MANY great deals on her blog. She covers most grocery stores in the southeast as well as CVS, Rite Aid, Walgreens, and Target. There is often alerts about free stuff and great coupons. The other week there was a great deal at Snapfish.com. If you were a new member, you got 50 prints free and there was free shipping the week of labor day. We take tons of pictures, and I spent about $9 for 150 pictures.

The best deal this week: diapers at Rite Aid. Last night I went to Rite Aid and this is what I got:

3 packs of Huggies Pure & Natural
1 case of Nestle bottled water
1 A&D diaper rash cream
1 small box of vanilla wafers (Josh's reward for staying with the kids and he needed it since Josiah decided to cry the whole time I was gone - poor Josh!)

Total out-of-pocket: $17
Total rebate check: $10
Total spent: $7

If you don't coupon, you are throwing away money!! The diapers alone were $11 each! Yes, I had tons of coupons - $3 Huggies coupons, $2 Rite Aid Huggies coupons, $5 off when you spend $20 Rite Aid coupons, $2 off A&D diaper rash cream, & $.50 off bottle water and it was on sale for $3.88.

Look at this site - you will save money!

I normally shop at Bi-Lo and Ingles. Neither one of those are in Louisville, but they are everywhere in SC. I also shop at Publix sometimes - esp for baby stuff. They have store coupons and with the manuf coupons, you can save a lot of $$ on diapers and wipes.

Very rarely do I go to Wal-Mart. They don't double coupons, and if you watch the sales at the grocery stores, most of the time you can get items much cheaper than at Wal-Mart.

Meiers (sp?) is great in Louisville. I'm pretty sure they double coupons and I know sometimes they triple coupons. Also, Kroger doubles coupons and southernsavers has their ad up every week.

We are having a terrific vacation!
