Today is the first day of school for a lot of kids here in Florida. But for our family it’s our second week. Our homeschool year started last week and it’s
kicking me in the butt making me get back into the swing of things – which I needed.
I’m getting back on schedule with housework, schoolwork, and life in general. And it’s actually pretty refreshing. I had tons of ‘projects’ scheduled to do this summer and basically got NONE of them done. LOL.
So I’m off to a new start and yesterday got me going. My DH and I ran some errands and I had an AWESOME trip, savings wise, at our local Publix!
I’ll be posting tomorrow on some of the yummy things we are doing with what we purchased at the grocery store, but for today I just couldn’t help but share how much I saved yesterday!
My Publix Savings Summary
Store Coupons $5.00
Vendor Coupons $28.59
Advertised Specials $69.64
My Total Savings $103.23!!!!
How cool is that. I spent $54.00 and got over $157.00 in groceries!
My DH loves to go grocery shopping with me on trips like this. When the cashier rings us up and the total comes out – he gets a big smile and winks at me.
I know for some this may seem really silly – but for me it’s a lot of fun. I enjoy being a homemaker. I love to make homemade meals and provide for my family. Getting the most for my money means a lot to me because my DH works darn hard for it and I want to be a good steward with what God has provided.
My DH really appreciates the effort and the the reward that comes with it.
