My 3/25 Publix Trip – $100.46 for $35.23 or 65% Off

Publix Shopping Trip

This was apparently candy and drinks week for me at Publix! I always stock up on candy around the holidays like Easter, Halloween and Christmas and I hide or freeze the excess so it will last until the next holiday. Since I had great coupons for both I had to stock up on the cran-grape juice and the Diet Cokes. I needed to spend a few more bucks so I could use a $10/$50 Apple Market coupon that came in a local monthly mailer and I decided I’d like to try the Natura wine since there were no alcohol exclusions on the coupon. Today I bought $100.46 worth of groceries for $35.23, or 65% off after coupons.  Here are the deals:

#ImagineSpring with OshKosh B’Gosh Kids Spring Fashions

Disclosure – I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for OshKosh B’Gosh. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.”

Clothes from Oshkosh B'Gosh

It seems like it was freezing just a week or so ago but now we’re already having high temps in the high 70s, low 80s and the azaleas are blooming like crazy. I didn’t think spring was ever going to get here and I’m thrilled that it has and that with it we get these longer days since the time change. We’ve been spending lots more time playing outside and that makes everybody happy, but especially momma since they’ve been sleeping so well at night after all the playtime.

I went over to the Oshkosh B’Gosh store at the Tanger Outlet Mall in Foley, Alabama and was very pleased with such a large selection of adorable kids’ clothes at such great prices. There were lots of fabulous things on sale plus I had this coupon for 25% off an Oshkosh B’Gosh purchase of $30 or more.

Clothes from Oshkosh B'Gosh

There was so much to choose from that I didn’t have a problem finding some new spring clothes for all five of my kiddoes and I’m psyched to report that I ended up with 13 items for $118.52 after 25% off coupon, plus I got back $20 in Carter’s & Oshkosh Rewards that are good off any purchase of $20 or more through early May. My girls got two shirts each and my “pink” girl got an adorable pair of pink pants. My oldest son got a shirt and some much needed socks, and my identical boys got a shirt, pair of shorts and pair of swim trunks each. They were all happy campers about their new spring clothes couldn’t wait to model them for these pictures.

I can’t wait to go back and spend my rewards on more cool clothes for the kids! You can find a store near you here or check out their website, and don’t forget to grab your 25% off coupon! While you’re at it you can also check out Oshkosh on Facebook and Twitter.

El Monterey Breakfast Burritos

If you’re like most moms (and dads!) you don’t have nearly enough time to do everything you’d like to do and of course feeding the family always comes first. With five kids and three jobs – I have a full-time job that I love plus I teach college courses online and I work hard on this blog – time is my most valuable commodity and anything I can do to save time is a major deal for me. If I can save time while making my family happy then I feel like a winner!

The kids all love these egg, sausage and cheese breakfast burritos from El Monterey and they only take a minute and a half to prepare in the microwave. My dad even sneaked one off the breakfast table but I caught him in the act and he said I needed to get some more just for him. They are made from delicious scrambled eggs, pork sausage and all natural cheddar cheese in an oven baked flour tortilla. Not only are they a fast and yummy breakfast, but they’re also great for taking on the road with us on those days that we’re running late for school. Now you can save money as well as time with this coupon for $1 off any El Monterey Breakfast or Signature Multipack Burrito or Chimi.

Yummy Fruit and Yogurt Wraps and $15 PayPal Cash Giveaway

Yoplait Greek 100 Whips

My kids get two meals a day plus a snack at school but they always seem to be “starving” by the time they get home so I like to have quick and healthy snacks ready for them when they get home. The kids really loved these fruit and yogurt wraps that I made with Yoplait Greek 100 Whips! and they’ve become a new favorite afternoon snack at our house.

We’re huge yogurt fans at our house but I have to be honest – the last time I brought home Greek yogurt for the kids they all turned their noses up at it and refused to eat more than a bite. I love that Greek yogurt is lower in fat and higher in protein than regular yogurt but I was nervous about getting the kids to try it again. Well I am very happy to report that the new Yoplait Greek 100 Whips! are a huge hit with the kiddos. I brought home the blueberry and strawberry flavors for them to try and they are super light, creamy and delicious. We will definitely be trying some of the other flavors like lemon meringue, strawberry cheesecake and vanilla cupcake. Grab your coupon for a FREE Yoplait Greek 100 Whips! yogurt from Publix here!

Yoplait Greek 100 Whips

I found this fruit and yogurt wrap recipe at the Yoplait website along with a bunch of other great ideas. I love how simple these are to make and that they’re filling enough to tide the kids over until dinner, plus the kids have enjoyed helping me make them and that’s always lots of fun.
