Publix Deals, an Adorable Valentine, and a Sports Wreath

Publix Deals and an Adorable Valentine

 I went to Publix tonight.  I thought it wouldn't be busy since it was a Monday.  Boy, was I wrong!  It was packed.  I thought maybe so many people were there because of Valentine's Day tomorrow, but everyone was buying regular groceries.  Well, anyways I spent $63.96 and saved $51.22, however I do have a mail-in rebate for $10 from Tyson so really I saved $61.22.  Woo hoo!!

Adorable Valentine
I wanted to share my son's Valentine's.  He has a Valentine's exchange tomorrow at school.  Here is what I did.  I was nervous because I ordered the pictures from Snapfish on the 6th.  The delivery said it would take from 2 to 4 days.  Boy they were wrong!  I just received them today.  Eeek!  Talk about last minute.  I rushed to open them and check out the pictures.  Then I got busy slicing and stuffing the lollipops.  I think they turned out wonderfully! I love them.  I think they are SO adorable!  I want one. :-)

Sports Wreath
Every holiday my teammates and I switch names to have a secret person.  A week before the holiday we start our exchange.  We buy a dollar present everyday and then on last day we get a five dollar gift.  I decided for this holiday I would make my secret sweetheart her final present.  I decided to make her a Yarn Sports Wreath!  Here is how it turned out.  I think it came out really cute even though I don't care for the team.

The black circles are black felt flowers.  The picture didn't turn out very good.


  1. I've never heard of Publix. Looks like you were quite the bargain shopper.

  2. I believe they are in the south. Publix is like Kroger.


  3. Not only are the cards adorable, but so is your son! So, so sweet!

  4. So... I know this is totally a random post, but I was just searching through your blog and came across it. This post is SO me. haha. I follow a publix blog/website that tell me all the cheap items. I definitely don't do as well as people on that TLC show... I usually do right around this one. I'm a cheap mama! haha :) plus I'm at UCF now for my masters... so yeaup - totally a post made for me! Have a great day!

    Dirty Hands and Lesson Plans

    1. Is it Southsavers you use? That is what I use to find my deals. I live in Florida so coupons don't double which stinks. I could never be on that show because without them doubling I just can't save like they do. Plus, I am not as crazy as those people. I don't do the dumpster driving or anything like that. I only get the newspaper for coupons. A few of the teachers I work with went to UCF for their undergrad. It seems to be a pretty good school.
