Here are a few of our favorite tailgating tips to help make your game day less stressful and more delicious!

My 1/17 Publix Trip - $77.45 for $32.77 or 58% Off

We had a rare “snow day” here in northwest Florida today, the schools were closed and so was the base where I work so the kids and I had got to hang out together all day and we had a pretty good time keeping the fire stoked and doing house stuff. Everybody pitched in and each kid made something for breakfast – eggs, toast, sausage, bacon and smoothies – it was pretty neat, of course that left me with cleanup detail but I’m delighted that they’re learning to cook. The girls went with me on the Publix trip and although I hate to go “off list” I couldn’t say no when all they asked for was fruit for smoothies and it was all on BOGO today! We bought $77.45 worth of groceries for $32.77, or 58% off after coupons. Here are the deals:

My 1/10 Publix Trip - $70.26 for $34.61 or 51% Off

There wasn’t a lot that excited me on sale this week at Publix and since there wasn’t an Apple Market coupon in the paper again this week I didn’t have a target price to reach so I just picked up a few staples on stock up prices like the Ocean Spray juice and the Ragu sauce. I am very happy to have saved over half off on several meals for the week including this beautiful chuck roast! This week I bought $70.26 worth of groceries at Publix for $34.61, or 51% off after coupons. Here are the deals:

We go through quite a bit of laundry detergent at our house so I’m always happy to stock up on a good Purex deal, and with the kids still out of school for the holidays I probably should have bought more of the Bagel Bites for snacks until they go back next week. Today at Publix I bought $83.74 worth of groceries for $37.53, or 55% off after coupons and $5/$50 Apple Market coupon from today’s newspaper. Here are the deals:

Since we will have to make cookies for Santa this week I picked up the Nestle Toll House cookie dough, and of course I’m looking forward to eating my share! We’re planning a Christmas brunch at my parents house so I bought the sausage and cheese to make the kids favorite breakfast casserole and the cheese cakes are for my dad and his sweet tooth.

We are planning a family brunch for Christmas morning and the kids are already looking forward to the breakfast casserole (eggs, cheese & sausage) and my mom’s famous “hawgs” so I’m stocking up on some of the things we’ll need. Of course I’ll take any excuse to have these Sister Schubert’s yeast rolls so we’ll also make a spiral ham to go with those.

My 11/29 Publix Trip - $81.29 for $22.11 or 73% Off

I’m excited about the great deals I got at Publix this week on Advil, wrapping paper, and shampoo but really there are lots of bargains to choose from this week. At the last second I realized I was about fifty cents short of being able to use the $5/$50 Apple Market coupon from today’s newspaper so I threw in the York Peppermint Patty. I hate it when I do that because I would have filled in with a better deal if I’d figured it out sooner, but I already ate the candy so I guess I can’t complain! Today I bought $81.29 worth of groceries for $22.11, or 73% off after coupons. Here are the deals:

My 11/15 Publix Trip - $96.62 for $33.64 or 65% Off

I’ve been so busy at work that I haven’t really had time to plan our Thanksgiving menu yet so I kinda feel bad about not getting too much food today, although I did get some great deals on toiletries so I’m thinking I’ll just have to plan another quick trip to Publix over the weekend to pick up a turkey and a few other things that we’ll need. I have an extra $5/$50 Apple Market coupon from today’s newspaper so if I need to add a few items I’ll stock up on pantry items that are always great deals during the holidays.  Today at Publix I bought $96.62 worth of groceries and toiletries for $33.64, or 65% off.
