There wasn’t a lot that I needed this week so I bought the beer and the potatoes for our 4th of July get together and stocked up on a bunch of chips. I love the garlic parmesan wings at Beef O’Brady’s so I’m excited to try their new wing sauce, we might have to do those on the 4th too! We’re just having a family BBQ in the back yard but if you’re in the Pensacola area and looking for something to do then check out all the 4th of July celebrations here. Today at Publix I bought $88.74 worth of groceries for $36.21, or 59% off after coupons and $10/$50 Apple Market coupon from today’s newspaper.

My 6/15 Publix Trip - $90.36 for $34.73 or 62% Off

My ten year old boys think they’re all grown up so they were super thrilled to get the Axe Body Spray and I was very happy to grab the deal on 7Up. The Publix I go to hasn’t had any Diet 7Up in stock the last several times it was on sale so my stockpile was all but gone before today’s trip. The kids tried the new Dole Fruitocracy as soon as I got home with the groceries and they really like them so that was a score. Today I bought $90.36 worth of groceries for $34.73, or 62% off after coupons and $10/$50 Apple Market coupon from today’s newspaper. Here are the deals:

Late Spring Cleaning with Mean Green

Late Spring Cleaning with Mean Green

While we like to keep the house as clean as possible all year round, I always like to tackle those projects each spring that seem to get missed during the year. It’s already getting pretty darn hot out but it’s technically still spring and I found a couple more things that needed a good cleaning like the outside of these patio doors. With so many kids handing slamming this door shut every day I wanted to be sure it was clean and bacteria free so I used Mean Green Anti-Bacterial Multi-Surface Cleaner to cut through this tough grease and grime while killing 99.9% of germs. I simply sprayed the door with the cleaner and wiped the grime away, I couldn’t believe it didn’t take a bunch of scrubbing to clean this mess.
