Coupon Mom: Save big on school supplies

Stack savings at Publix

Vitamins, supplements: Check Publix flier racks to find a store coupon circular titled “Over $41 in Coupon Savings” and combine store coupons with manufacturers coupons for big savings. Use the $5-off-two store coupon for Sundown vitamins along with two of the $1-off coupons in the Aug. 2 RedPlum to save $3.50 per bottle of vitamins. Use the $3-off-two Glucerna shakes (four- or six-pack) store coupon from the same Publix flier along with the $3-off-two shake multipacks coupon in the Aug. 2 SmartSource to save $3 per multipack. Look in the Publix flier for a promotion that gives you a $10 Publix Gift card when you spend $30 on participating health and beauty brands listed.
