Big Boo Hoo - Bye Bye $0.50 Kashi Cookies and Pita Crisps at Publix -

Recyclebank - Kashi - Odwalla
Good News and Bad News


The Bad First.
I've been patiently waiting for Publix to put the Kashi Pita Crisps, Kashi Cookies and Kashi Crackers on sale again.  The new yellow Publix Advantage Flyer shows them for $2.50 each on sale.  So I clicked over to Recyclebank and look for the $2 off any one Kashi item coupon.   Well, there it wasn't.  Yes, I said wasn't.  This happend a couple of months ago, and the Kashi coupon turned back up a short time later.  So I'm hoping it will reappear when we turn the calendar page to May.

The Good Second.
There are still lots of very good exclusive coupons available at Recyclebank.  There is an Odwalla coupon for $1 off any 1 item, and it's on special for just 40 points today.  How long does it take to get the 40 points?  About a minute.  In fact, when you are visiting the world map to earn points, look for Japan and you'll earn 35 points just for uploading a photo relating to recycling.

    Extreme Savings: $3 - 1395 Calories - 3 Meals and 4 Snacks / Desserts

    Prior to about 10 months ago, I would have been delighted if the ingredients for just one lunch cost just $3, let alone paying $3 for 3 meals and 4 snacks / desserts.  What has changed is they way I shop. These days, I:
    • Plan shopping trips carefully, watching and waiting for the best deals 
    • Combine sales, BOGOs, store coupons, manufacturer coupons, competitor coupons, gift card deals, clearance, and any other great savings scenarios t
    • Stockpile, stockpile, stockpile in pantry and freezer
    • Purchase produce at farmers markets or Aldi's, which saves a whole bunch over Publix and Super Target 
    Not every meal or every day will look like our menu from yesterday.  Some days everything is made from scratch, some days we dip in to the freezer for a little help.  We try to make sure we are eating  veggies, fruits, grains, and proteins that make sense.
