Grand Plié a la Seconde—Pas de Bourreé—Glissade—Jeté—Assemblé

*Grand Plié a la Seconde is the founding step, the beginning. The opening act of a shopper’s plan is the store, the retailer, and the sales within.

*Pas de Bourreé are the steps between; clipping the coupons, watching the blogs, matching the ads.

*Glissade is the prep. Making a list and organizing a plan creates a graceful interlude for the main event.

*Jeté, the flying leap; the actual shopping trip.

*Assemblé, where everything comes together.

The finale takes place at center stage with the register, the sale, the coupons,

and the shopper taking a final bow. Let us dance our way to savings!

Walmart Vs. Publix...

This Ad 

Was In Yesterday's Paper
*South Florida SunSentinel*
Walmart Vs. MY Publix
Yes, MY Publix! I am Loyal, but I like a good deal when I can get it! If I can get something for free @ Walmart or there is a Produce or Meat Price Match that cannot get beat! I'll go!! Other than that my Price Matching takes place @ Target!

What they Don't Show you in the AD above is Sale Items... Why? Because then Publix is Supreme!

Anyone can go into a store and purposely Buy items that are NOT on Sale! Like:
*Uncle Ben's Ready Rice that would go on Sale 4 for $5 the next day.
*CF Diet Pepsi which was B2G2free(Blog post featured!)
*Colgate Total 4oz(but they got 5.8oz) was On Sale $2.19
*Orange Juice(while not Tropicana that week) is on Sale Nearly Every Week 2 for $6

But come now, It's not Always about Prices!
Customer Service is KEY!

Have you not been able to find an item? Were you able to find someone to help you?
At Publix there is plenty of employees more than happy to show you straight to the product or give you precise directions.
At Walmart... For me, took me more than 10 minutes to find someone who would listen to me, and they just roll their eyes and say, 'Aisle 4'... I would later find the item by chance on Aisle 6 O-o...

I'll Take Publix Any Day!

Tips and Tricks #5 Stockpiling Basics!

Stockpiling is for hoarders! I’m NOT Doing it! Why should I?!
Well, with that mentality, please don’t! But if you want to save more money then listen up!

 Not Mine! :) ;)

I believe more than 65% of all Sales are seasonal. The best time to buy school supplies is between 4th of July to mid/late-Sept. Condiments, like Ketchup, mustard, BBQ sauce, and etc is right NOW! Cleaning supplies is in March and April. Flour, sugar, and other baking needs is in Nov. and Dec. I got unbelievable prices on toilet paper and paper towel on Black Friday! (yes that’s what I got on Black Friday, LOL). So If they’re Seasonal, should we not stock up on it while we can at the lowest price possible?!

Yes! That is what Stockpiling means!

Think about it like this…

You know you go through two boxes of cereal per week, so you buy one box on your Sunday trip and one box on your Wednesday trip. When it is on sale (which is about once every six weeks), you buy four boxes on Sunday and just skip that item on Wednesday. Wasn’t it nice to not have to buy cereal on Wednesday?! But come a week and a half later you’re paying full price for it again! :( LET TRY THIS:: Instead of only buying four when it’s on sale, try buying 12. Now you can take Cereal off your list for six whole weeks!! And when it’s time to buy it again… ITS ON SALE AGAIN!! :) Stock up again, so you only have to pay sale prices in the future!

You can do this with a lot of different items and slowly but surely your grocery list will shrink in size to things you can only buy fresh (like produce) and some things you need to stock up on. At First your grocery bill may seem to rise when you start stockpiling, but that is because while you are buying sale/coupon items in bulk, you are still buying all your regular items. Your regular items will slowly be knocked off your list as you stockpile them during their own coupon/sale time. Once that happens your bill will drop a lot!

I got excited when I started couponing…

When I first started, this time last year, I bought everything that was on sale and I had a coupon for. As a young person still living at home, it normally wasn’t MY job to buy things like shampoo, conditioner, bodywash, and deodorant. My mom did :P lol. Then I started couponing and when my mom kept forgetting the Qs, or told me it was still too expensive even with coupons; I bought it. I spent about $20 + my average $30 for my regular things to buy about 15 things of hair and body care items. I was at my budget limit for the week and I just could not understand what I did wrong. I was spending more, not less! But next week came and I realized I have enough soaps and etc for at least 3 months!! My next item was something I bought regularly, pasta, then it was sauces, chicken, frozen veggies… Today I buy my stockpile items each week, unless there is something special I want… for a single person, I usually spend about $15 to $25 dollars a week… This week’s hail includes 28 soup, 2 body wash, 2 sauce packets, 4 tooth pastes, 2 B&J ice-cream, 1 box of cereal, 2 loaves of bread = $23.13… saved $88

**Remember if it’s free or a MM after coupon and sale GET it! Those $5 off $30, or $10 off $100 Qs are BEFORE Coupons!! Even if you don’t use it! Someone else could, so DONATE IT!!
