Reader Spotlight – All This And Free Cookies, Too

2011-222X222

This week’s Reader Spotlight comes to us from Dena, who Take it away, Dena!

When my kids were little I tried couponing. It was horrible. There were’t many websites you could print coupons from, and the ones in the paper were usually a joke. I did better just getting store brand items and trying to shop as cheaply as I could.

Now, 4 kids later and me being a stay at home mom, the grocery bill was just too much. We could easily spend three hundred dollars and it seemed like we would get just enough to get by each time. I was sick and bored one night and saw that Netflix had Extreme Couponing on it. So I watched every single episode.

It just seemed so simple. I have plenty of time and that’s the main thing it seemed I needed. Now, we have shelves stocked with everything we could possibly need that we paid pennies for (if anything at all!)

I can donate as much as I want and not break the bank. I can give stuff to family members and help them out. And more importantly, we have money to do things with our kids that we couldn’t have before. We can take them on trips or just to the zoo because we aren’t worried if we’ll have enough food or money to last until the next paycheck.

I Heart Publix has been a lifesaver for me in my couponing journey. You make it so simple and I know it is greatly appreciated by myself and many others. Thank you for helping make me a couponer and I know my family thanks you, too (they love free cookies!).

Thanks for sharing, Dena!

Reader Spotlight – A 30 Year Career In Couponing

heart mouseThis week’s Reader Spotlight comes to us from Sloane, who started couponing LONG before the Extreme Couponing craze. Take it away, Sloane!

I have been couponing off and on for almost thirty years!

It began when I wanted to stay at home with my three wonderful daughters. When they were old enough to understand couponing, they would tell each other “mom won’t buy you that cereal until it is on sale!”  When I had my second daughter and had to let my husband and the oldest go to the store they came home with one bag of groceries for about sixty dollars and I almost cried!

It is not always easy to stick to a budget – it is ok to give yourself a break – a splurge is a necessity, and life does not always allow you to stay focused. When I found this site over three years ago it changed how I coupon for the better, and I cannot thank Michelle enough. With two daughters in college it makes all the difference – we are at that stage where we help with what we can, but they still have student loans because we cannot borrow for our retirement !

Almost every time I go to Publix someone asks me how to coupon and I refer them to this site. Thanks again to Michelle who makes our lives easier !

Thanks for sharing, Sloane!

Reader Spotlight – The Road To Savings

road to savings
This week’s Reader Spotlight comes to us from Brittany at The Rogue Mom, whose upbeat and positive story is a great one! I think you guys will agree :)

When my husband and I first got married, I used to make a list of the meals we wanted to eat, make my grocery list, and go to the store to purchase those items.  I was spending about $160/week for 2 people!  We were both just out of college up to our ears in student loans with a new house payment on top of that.  But both being very blessed to have great jobs, we didn’t think twice about it.
I started shopping the Publix BOGO sales after I had my first child.  I started getting a Sunday paper and clipping coupons for only the products my family used.  Maternity leave was expensive and I wanted to try to offset the loss in our savings as much as I could.  I started stockpiling enough food until the next sale of a particular item.
It wasn’t until I received the first daycare bill for child #2 and realized that I was dedicating a mortgage payment a month to childcare that I really started looking for ways to save more.  When Pinterest came out, I discovered the I Heart Publix website and started combining coupons and sales. Soon after I discovered the Publix shopping list, where I could quickly and easily make my grocery list, organized aisle by aisle, to save me time (even more necessary than the coupons for this working mom!)  I started making my meal plan after I made my grocery list, basing all of our meals on what was on sale and in season.
Now I have an accordion file with coupon inserts and a small one for printed coupons, not to mention Ibotta, Shopmium and Upromise.  Last week, I bought $248 worth of food for my family for $136.  I bought food for 7 days of meals, 4 freezer meals, and added 45 items to my pantry stock (including laundry detergent and batteries!)  Here’s the kicker – I had 31 coupons and was in and out of the store in 35 minutes.  Publix really is very coupon friendly!  And I’m just getting started!

Thanks for sharing, Brittany!

Reader Spotlight – Canstruction And Couponing

canstructionphoto credit

This week’s Reader Spotlight comes to us from Coupon Dude, who has a story that I just love! I have seen these fabulous structures in stores and never knew how much work went into them!

You guys can check out the Canstruction.org site to see how to get involved or even look to see where the upcoming events are. There are several coming up in the various Publix states.

If you want to watch the construction of Coupon Dude’s awesome project – check out the video HERE.

Many of us have become amazing couponers thanks to the skills we have learned from I Heart Publix.  Although we start by providing for our immediate families, many share the fruits of our efforts with our extended families, our co-workers, local shelters and food pantries.  But there is another way to put our unique skills to use….

Each year, members of the design and construction industry (architects, engineers and contractors) participate in Canstruction.  In a series of very clever local competitions designed to bring attention to hunger and the work of food banks, Canstruction events are held throughout the year in cities around the world.  Teams from the design and construction industry apply their talents to construct sculptures from non-perishable food items.  Entries are judged in several categories, and emphasis is placed on utilizing food items with a high nutritional value, especially proteins.  After the competitions, the sculptures are “deCanstructed” and the food is donated to local food banks.

Not only does each team have to be creative in the design and construction of the sculptures, they also must procure the food items utilized.  This can mean raising anywhere from $2,000-$10,000, no small task.  But we all know that coupons can reduce the cost of food.

In 2013, I was honored to participate on a team in the Atlanta Canstruction event, and I saw an opportunity to apply the skills I have learned from I Heart Publix.  I got our team to save MQs from the newspaper, and to beg, borrow and steal even more MQs.  We ordered our food from my local Publix and those MQs reduced the food expense by hundreds of dollars, allowing us to purchase even more food that would be donated.  Our entry, titled “Hunger…hiding in Plane sight” received both the Juror’s Choice (best in show) and People’s Choice awards.

1

As you can see, we have some very creative people on our team and there were a LOT of hours put in the design. Every can type used has to be precisely measured to make the whole come out correctly. If we got off by 1/16″ with each can, the plane would have stretched by about 2″ and fallen over…so precision is super important. As you can see from the images, the computer model is pretty darn close to what the final sculpture turned out like.

FYI, the lower portion of the plane was Starkist tuna cans, the upper portion of the plane was Publix canned chicken, the windows were canned fishcakes, the tail was Vienna sausage (chicken and beef for the two colors), the engines were guava paste cans, the “cloud” was bags of Publix marshmallows, and the “sky” background wall was Progresso soup cans. All of the cans in the back wall were identical, just rotating the cans to expose differing parts of the labels created the “clouds.”

The manager at my local Publix (Ansley Mall store in Atlanta) helped tremendously coordinating the ordering and delivering of the food. That is a much bigger task than you think – the food you see fully filled several SUVs and pickup trucks. Several of the teams ordered their food from Kroger – their orders were messed up and not delivered in time to allow a practice build before the event. Which goes to show why we all love Publix! :)

Wherever you live, there is probably a Canstruction event held nearby.  A quick internet search should point you in the right direction.  We might not all be able to donate financially, but we CAN donate our couponing skills.  Find your local Canstruction event and start saving those coupons!!

Thanks for sharing, Coupon Dude!

Reader Spotlight – Learning The Ropes

ropes

This week’s Reader Spotlight comes to us from Sarah, whose starting couponing in 2012 and has built quite a stockpile for her family since then. 
Take it away, Sarah!

I started couponing shortly after my husband and I got married in 2012. We had attended a financial class through our church earlier that year, and one of our classmates was teaching a couponing class, so I decided to give it a try.

Honestly, I felt overwhelmed at first. During the coupon class, she showed us several different websites and told us about the various store programs and policies…a lot to take in for a newbie like me! But I was really drawn to her display stockpile…she had brought a sample of all the items she’d gotten for free. I was floored! I was so shocked that it could be cheaper to buy brand name items than store brands, and that you could even get things for FREE!!

I started easing into coupons that summer, and fell in love with I Heart Publix. By the fall, my husband was looking for a new job and we were down to just my income. My fun little hobby now became a necessary part time job for me. Thanks to the shopping list feature, I was able to see exactly how much I would be spending each week before we even stepped foot in the store. I could ‘edit’ our list to make the most of every penny, and we were prepared when we went shopping each week.

After only a few months, I had my own stockpile – much to my husband’s chagrin as we moved to our new apartment. I didn’t realize how many things I’d been able to stock up on until I had to pack it all in boxes. :) Here we are a few years later and while things are still tight, I am not worried one bit about whether we will run out of essentials. We’ll be able to feed our two cats for the next 8 months with all the food we got this spring, and we can do laundry almost indefinitely with all the great detergent deals I’ve found. (Not to mention all the free/cheap soap, shampoo, and toothpaste!)

My husband was skeptical at first, since he thought it was so annoying to be in line behind a couponer, but now he’s taken the weekly shopping trip as his own. I’m so proud to have such a helpful spouse since he’s taken the time to learn the ‘rules’ and has made friends with most of the cashiers and managers at our store. Coupons have really changed the way we shop for groceries, and I have to say that I really do love Publix (and this fabulous site of course!) so much that I’ve stopped shopping elsewhere almost completely.

Thanks for all you do, Michelle!

Reader Spotlight – Following In Mom’s Footsteps

piggy bank

This week’s Reader Spotlight comes to us from Cassandra, a young couponer who learned how to coupon from her mom. As Cassandra went out on her own with her own family, she has taken what her mom taught her and run with it!

Take it away, Cassandra!

I am a 21 year old couponer, and I love every minute of it. Everytime I go into a store and get our groceries, the cashier always gives me a look that says “You look like you’re 12, how did you know how to do all this??” The simple answer: My mother.

Growing up, it wasn’t easy-breezy. Our pantry wasn’t very full, and the meal selection was usually very routine (the cheap staples like grains, veggies, and more than likely more chicken than you could ever imagine eating in your whole life). I was a kid, I didn’t mind. It was like that for a while, but I realized eventually that my mother was spending more time looking at those ads that came in the mail than anything else. Our pantry got fuller, and the meals got more inventive (more beef!!). Mind you, my mother had always been frugal, but we’d never had anything like this! She had large storage bins in her closet full of the bathroom necessities: toothbrushes, toothpaste, shampoos and conditioners of all brands, shapes, and sizes, and deodorant as far as the eye can see. We started getting fun treats every week, which would be whatever snack happened to be BOGO or on sale for cheap. Shopping trips on Sunday with my Mom and my grandparents were… fun!

As I got older, I got interested. My mom proceeded to show me how she did things, rolling coupons and rewards at CVS and Walgreens, using the BOGO deals at Publix or other local stores, and all the other fun tricks of the trade. I got the occasional razor deal, or my favorite in high school was when I got about 15 hair dyes on clearance, with coupons, and I got PAID .52 cents!! I tried my best to find things, I was never really good at it.

That was until I met my loving soon-to-be-husband. We started dating and I realized that his state of affairs was a wreck. He has a (now) 12 year old daughter, and when I spent some of my nights over there, making dinner for the two of them, I realized that he was living, well, like a single father that had no idea what he was doing. He bought a new frozen meal every night to make (full price, yikes!!), had nothing in the pantry, and I’m pretty sure the only thing he knew how to cook on/in was the microwave or the grill. (He tried to have an Italian girl make a frozen lasagna!!)

When I moved in, there was an overhaul. I think the fact that this beautiful little girl was suffering from her father’s horrid cooking jump started my couponing-bone. We started a budget, and the 100 a month we spend on groceries can now last for two, if anything were to happen in the next month. We now have a full pantry, a full freezer, more deodorant, shampoo, conditioner, toothpaste, and other toiletries to last us all year. They get a REAL meal instead of a pre-packaged, frozen entree.

My mother is my role model. I share my hauls with her, and tell her about all the latest deals, and she does the same. We’re closer than ever. I thank her from the bottom of my heart for introducing me to this lovely version of frugality, and giving my new family the good start we need to have a stress-free life (at least when it comes to money!)

Reader Spotlight – Stumbling Upon Savings

Unknown
This week’s Reader Spotlight comes to us from Sharon, who taught herself to coupon after discovering an auction for coupons on Ebay. She has done great since those first steps!

Take it away, Sharon!

Shortly after getting married I found out I was pregnant, Oh Boy! I decided to quit my good paying full time job and my husband had just started his educational career so our income was cut by 60%! I realized very quickly that I would have to adjust my spending or we’d be broke and homeless in 3 months.

I started selling some of our stuff on eBay to make extra money and stumbled upon an auction for coupons. I started doing research and low and behold, people actually saved tons of money using these things!

I found several blogs, and I Heart Publix quickly became a favorite of mine. I started saving money right away. I took it slow and just shopped Publix for the first month, learning their rules and the stores “coupon quarks.” Then I expanded into CVS, Walgreens, and the other stores in my small town. I recommend that new couponers take their time and learn the system of each store.

We went from spending $400-$500 a month on groceries and household items to spending less than $200 a month on the exact same items. I also have an impressive stock pile that my husband calls our Hutchmart.

I feel like couponing gave me the financial freedom to choose to be a stay at home mom until our son went to school. Those first 5 years of his life were such a joy…He’s now 10 years old and I am in a full time job that I absolutely love. I still coupon and bargain hunt…it’s in my blood forever!

Reader Spotlight – Here’s Mine…Now Tell Me Your Story

buttonWell guys it’s a sad day…I am out of Reader Spotlights.

I looked back and we’ve had a reader spotlight every week since July of 2010. I have to admit that I love reading your stories. It’s nice to hear about how couponing and saving money have impacted others. We all started somewhere and it’s interesting to look at the journey.

Since I couldn’t find any stories left in my folder, I thought I’d give you guys an update on my savings journey.

Many of you have been with me since I started my site. So I will just briefly touch on my start.

I started couponing before couponing was cool ;-) I was a brand new stay at home mom and started to feel the pinch from the loss of my income. My husband and I had made the decision that my most important job would be raising our child (soon children). We knew that we’d have to get creative with finances. One day I saw a news story about a woman who got $100+ in groceries for next to nothing thanks to coupons. It just so happened that I saw the show as I was unloading a $200+ grocery trip. Needless to say, I was interested. That day I changed the way I shopped and we started making all kinds of changes financially.

My husband and I started budgeting and really looking at how we spent money. At first it was just day to day, then week to week until eventually we had a plan for a whole year. We have made mistakes here and there but overall we have been very successful in our efforts to reduce our debt and save money.

All these years later I still coupon, save money and look for ways to cut my budget wherever I can. While I might be called frugal,  I consider it smart planning.

I make my money work for me. That doesn’t mean I don’t splurge on things on occasion but I am very aware of where all my money goes from day to day. Today the only debt my husband and I have is our new house and my goal is to have it paid off in less than 5 years (2 years is my fast track goal!)

We try to be smart with our money. So as an example, we don’t get a new car until we can pay cash for that vehicle. We are able to do that as we start saving for the next new car the day we bring a new one home. We have a nice emergency savings as well as educational savings for the boys. It’s really eye opening when you look and see where your money goes every day! I think by being on top of your spending, you start to appreciate that money and look for ways to keep more of it in your pocket!

I keep evaluating and adjusting our budgets to make sure we stay on track. Even if I won the lottery tomorrow, I would still use coupons! I think once you see how easy it is to save money, it’s hard to go back to paying full price!

OK…now it’s your turn. I really do love hearing from you guys and would love if you’d take a few minutes to jot down your story. You can share how you started, a fun experience, what saving money has meant to you or just really anything that is related to couponing and saving money.

Email me your story – contactiheartpublix @ gmail.com (remove the spaces).

Reader Spotlight – Using Coupons And Sharing Smiles

Hopefully the sun will melt all this ice!This week’s Reader Spotlight comes to us from Sue, who has a great message to share. If you need an Enjoy the City deal, I believe the current sale is still running through 9/15.

Take it away, Sue!

Thanks to Michelle, I purchased a bunch of Enjoy the City books last July with the Winn Dixie coupons. Spent $100, received 50 books X 4 Winn Dixie coupons = 200 $5/$30 coupons.

To use all those coupons I would have had to spend $5000! There was no way that was going to happen before they expired in December. I generally spend $120-$150 per week BEFORE coupons. Instead, here is how I used them:

First I had to break even on the cost of the books. $5 X 20 = $100, so my first $600+ in groceries, (my orders averaged about $33.) made that happen. **Let me take this moment to thank my wonderful significant other for spending HOURS in Publix while I sorted my orders into $30 sections with matching coupons, to make the most of the W/D coupons :) **

Of course, with my 5 separate orders, I spent a lot more time at the checkout. So I would give the customer behind me (if they have $30 in groceries) one of my W/D coupons, explain how to use with their order and thank them for being so patient with me while I saved $20-$25 on my total bill!

One time I had a crabby old man complain to his wife about the wait and I said “Stick with me and I’ll save you 5 bucks on your groceries today!” Got him curious and he decided it was worth the wait. It is amazing how attitudes change with a little kindness.

I have to grin when people said, “…but it’s a W/D coupon!” and I would explain that Publix would rather accept the coupon and have you spend $30 at their store than send you to a competitor to use the coupon.

I would also offer a coupon to the cashier, so it got to the point where the cashiers would flag me down when I walk in to get me to come through their line! :)

If you have gotten a similar Enjoy the City deal and have some extra coupons, do a little calculating of your own and see how many smiles you can pass on!!!

Reader Spotlight – Couponing Through Tough Times

don't-give-up
This week’s Reader Spotlight comes to us from Kim, who has had a rough few years. She uses coupons to help her keep stocked on the basics and is even able to help others. Take it away, Kim!

I had a friend who introduced me to couponing a few years back. When she stopped couponing, I came across your site, and I’ve been using it ever since. It’s been almost 5 years now, and I have to say over the years I’ve gotten better with the help of your site!

Almost 2 years ago I was forced to move back in with my father or be homeless when my townhouse was sold out from under me. I moved in with my dad and we split the bills 50/50. He wouldn’t be able to make it without me being here, as he is living on his retirement.

Last year I was fired from my job. I had been hospitalized twice and when I ended up sick a 3rd time, I was fired. I live in Florida which is a right to hire, right to fire state, so there was nothing I could do to fight it. Plus I worked for a government agency, so no one would fight for me anyway.

After losing my job, I went on food stamps and I have been on them ever since. In the beginning, a single person would get $200 a month and as of last November it was reduced to $189. I know the prices today…without sales or coupons it is impossible to live off that much!

I still haven’t been able to find a permanent job; all I’ve been able to get have been temporary jobs. I’ve been living off unemployment to pay my bills when not working a temporary job. With the coupon matchups from your site as well as others for other stores, I have been able to keep food in the house. Even last summer, when a girl that I treat as the daughter I can’t have came to live with us, I was still able to feed her, her 2 kids plus my father and I as well. I just want to say, thank you for all you do!
