Catherine's Awesome Trip To Publix Wednesday Night! (Saved $116.94, Spent $15.69)
Couldn't help but share this one with you! Catherine, a member of "Clipping for a Cause," went to Publix straight after our clipping party Wednesday night to get the items on her list.
When we meet at the church each week, we usually spend about an hour or a little more clipping coupons for items that will be free or less than a dollar. Using various websites such as I Heart Publix and Southern Savers , we are able to print weekly ads with coupon matchups for several stores in our area. We take the coupons clipped for each store and divide them among 5-8 volunteers who then purchase the items and bring those items to the next meeting. From there, we divide everything purchased from that week and it is delivered based on the individual needs of the charities we help support!
Catherine shows us how a little over $15 can purchase nearly 50 items to donate to needy families.
