I really like to do the gas card deal when it’s available so I had to hit $50 in groceries today in order to take $10 off.

There wasn’t a lot on my list this week and I decided to get the BOGO candles in order to hit $30 so I could use my $5/$30 Winn Dixie coupon but I thought I’d check out the BOGO wine while I was in the store and I noticed the $25 rebate peelie on a lot of the beer packages with a total purchase of $50 or more so I figured that would make both the beer and wine free!

My 8/27 Publix Trip – $65.40 for $18.04 or 72% Off


What I Love About the New Fiber One Cookies & Streusel Bars

Disclosure – Information and a prize pack have been provided by General Mills through Platefull Co-Op, however all thoughts and opinions are my own.

Fiber One Cookies

I’ll be honest, I really didn’t know what to expect when I was asked to try the new Fiber One Streusel Bars and Chocolate Chip Cookies. I like a nice soft cookie and I kind of thought that with all the extra fiber these might not be as soft, moist and chewy as they turned out to be. I also wasn’t sure if my five kids would even try them, much less like them, but I have been very pleasantly surprised.

A couple of the kids actually fought over who got the last Blueberry Streusel Bar and my daughters and I all really enjoyed the Strawberry Streusel Bars. The kids have even asked to take them and the Chocolate Chip Cookies to school for snacks and I’ve gladly let them do that.

My oldest son asks for a fudge round for a before bed snack practically every night. I’ve tried everything to get him to eat something else, I’ll give him fruit instead and he’ll eat it, then go ahead and ask for a fudge round after – and then it just becomes a big argument. I got him to try a Fiber One Double Chocolate Chip Cookie one night and he absolutely loved it, I’m SO happy that he’s started asking for them now that I went out and stocked up on them, which is awesome because I love them too!

The fudge rounds are 250 calories with 90 calories from fat and they only contain 2 grams of dietary fiber. On the other hand the Fiber One Double Chocolate Chip Cookies contain 120 calories with 40 calories from fat and still have a whopping 5 grams of dietary fiber or 20% of the recommended daily allowance. That thrills me because we’re able to get the chocolate that we’re craving without any of the guilt and the extra fiber keeps us fuller longer so we’re not left wanting more. They’re available all over, including my favorite store Publix, and you can even grab some Fiber One coupons here!

Publix Shopping Trip

I went to the Publix closest to my house today instead of the one closest to my work that I usually go to and I was actually very disappointed. They’ve recently finished a remodel of this store so I thought I’d give it a try again but I went in with a very short list and an even shorter amount of time to spend but they didn’t have two of the BOGOs on the my list, didn’t even have empty spots where they should have been. I stopped a manager who was very helpful and went to great lengths to make sure I was happy, but I still left sad that they didn’t have the Suave deodorant I could have got for free after coupons or the Velvet Crush Pinot Noir that I wanted. I had to figure something else out quickly so I could hit the $30 I needed before qs to use the $5/$30 Winn Dixie coupon I had so I just threw some more of the Philly Swirl popsicles in my cart for the kids. Today I bought $65.40 worth of groceries for $18.04, or 72% off after coupons and $3 RR.  Here are the deals:
