My 11/30 Publix Trip - $88.17 for $38.83 or 56% Off

There wasn’t a whole lot that I needed on sale at Publix this week so I threw in the beer in order to hit $50 so I could use the $10/$50 Apple Market coupon from today’s newspaper. Now that I’ve already been to the store I’m thinking I really should go back and get more wrapping paper while it’s only 50 cents a roll and I probably should have got some chicken leg quarters on BOGO. Looks like another trip may be in my near future! Today I bought $88.17 worth of groceries at Publix for $38.83, or 56% off after coupons. Here are the deals:

DIY Vanilla Mint Lip Balm

DIY Vanilla Mint Lip Balm

If you are new to making lip balm, the first thing you should know is that it really isn’t as hard as you may think! It also isn’t time consuming either and one great perk is you can save a lot of money by doing it yourself. If you have a good, natural base, then once you’ve made your own lip balm a few times, you will feel confident in changing the flavors and ingredients for them with no problem. This recipe has a good base which comes out nice and smooth and then with the addition of a great spearmint essential oil and vanilla extract you’ll have a perfect flavor combination.
