I combined a $5/$20 personal care products coupon from Sunday’s Target ad and some great coupons in the Publix advantage flyer to score an excellent deal on Axe products this week.

My 5/2 Publix Trip - $91.47 for $34.79 or 62% Off

These Margaritaville shrimp are so easy to prepare and they’re delicious! The box says its an appetizer but I like to make them for the adults when the kids are having corn dogs or the like and a box is plenty for a meal. I was also pretty tickled with the deal on M&M’s this week (after coupon) but just to make sure I don’t eat them all myself I gave half of them to my mom. This week at Publix I bought $91.47 worth of groceries, or 62% off after coupons. Here are the deals:

How to Protect Fruit Trees and Shrubs from Birds, Squirrels & Other Pests

How to Protect Fruit Trees and Shrubs from Birds, Squirrels & Other Pests

There are lots of cheap or free methods you can use to help protect your fruit trees and shrubs from pests like squirrels and birds, such as hanging aluminum pie plates or old CDs from the trees branches to scare them off.  You can also buy reflective bird tape to hang from the branches or place an owl decoy nearby to scare away birds.

We have quite a bit of time and money invested in grapes, blueberries, limes, lemons and satsuma trees and its a fight every year to keep the birds and squirrels from stealing most of our delicious crops so I’ve tried all sorts of things to keep these rude invaders away. All of the above methods are helpful in keeping birds and squirrels away from your fruit trees and shrubs, but they’re not foolproof and the critters are smart and get used to these tricks after awhile. I really wanted to cover my fruit trees and bushes completely to keep everything out so we devised these simple domes using irrigation tubing to use as a framework for wildlife netting.

My 4/25 Publix Trip – $80.24 for $31.22 or 61% Off

My 4/25 Publix Trip - $80.24 for $31.22 or 61% Off

My kids absolutely love Cheez-Its so I grab some every time they go on sale but you just can’t beat the buy 6 get 5 free deal that I ended up with this week. If you buy 6 boxes (two of the boxes have to be Duos) and use the buy 2 get a box of Duos free coupon from the Publix Green Advantage, you end up only paying for one box since three were already free with the BOGO sale and the two coupons take off the price of two boxes of Duos. Score! I picked up a few other staples and can’t wait to try this King Malbec. Today at Publix I bought $80.24 worth of groceries for $31.22, or 60% off after coupons. Here are the deals:
