Celebrate Family Memories with Big Savings at Publix! #PublixFamily

I don’t have to tell you that life is super busy these days. Whether it be school activities, running errands, or getting projects done around the house, our days are constantly on-the-go! I appreciate the days when there is nothing on the calendar, and we can sit back as a family and relax.

Even though the days are busy, I try to make sure that our family enjoys conversation, good laughs, and delicious food around the dinner table each night. This is a great time for us to make memories and to catch up on all of the day’s activities. Thanks to Publix, mealtime can be stress-free and delicious with exclusive coupons included in the Family Celebrations Promotion. There are over $35 in coupons that can be found at GetTheSavings.com/Family-Celebrations, or you can find the Family Celebrations Booklet at your local Florida Publix store. These coupons are only valid 9/4-10/2/21, so you will need to act fast! Before you head to Publix, I would suggest that you check the entire list of coupons to help plan your shopping trip.

I am always trying to think “out of the box” when it comes to dinner ideas, so I was excited to see that one of the coupons in the Family Celebrations Booklet was for $1.50 off any Any One (1) Sir Kensington’s Product 8.45–20 oz. I spotted several varieties of Sir Kensingon’s Dressing & Marinades, and chose the Dijon Balsamic. Immediately, when I saw this product, I thought of how delcious the marinade would be on wings! Boy, was I right! These wings were delicious, crispy, and every bite was packed full of flavor. Did I mention that this recipe was super easy? 

I took a small bag of frozen chicken wings, and place the entire bottle of Sir Kensington’s Dijon Balsamic Marinade over them. I covered for several hours in the refrigerator then baked the wings in a 400 degree oven for around 25 minutes! Voila! I served with a salad and dinner was served!

Try this recipe and let me know what you think! In the meantime, head on over to GetTheSavings.com/Family-Celebrations and check out all of the money-saving coupons that are available!

Florida readers, be sure to keep an eye out in your Valpak envelope which contains more details on the Publix Family Celebrations promotion.

Nominate a Deserving Teacher for the #GreatTeacherGiveback

Can you believe that it is once again time for school to start? Is it just me or does it seem like the summer gets shorter every year?

As we are busily preparing to send our kids back to school this year, it’s important that we not forget about the teachers that will be teaching our children. Not only do they sacrifice their time, but most teachers also give of their own money to ensure that their classroooms are ready for their students.

Teachers often have to provide their own supplies, decorations, and even books. In a recent study it was estimated that they average teacher spends over $500 out of their own pocket for these items. That is a lot of extra cash that many teachers may not have. Even as a part-time paraprofessional educator at my school, there are supplies and items that I purchase with my own money. Items like rewards, school supplies, and even extra-curricular work can really add up.

In addition, many students will come to school with only a fraction of the items that are listed on their school supply list. A majority of schools do not provide their teachers with funds for school supplies, so this means that the teacher will have to provide those items for the students. An extra $500 a year can be overwhelming for many teachers, so any extra funds are definitely helpful.

Wouldn’t it be awesome to give back to a deserving teacher? How would you like to nominate a teacher that you know to help them get funds for their classroom? Thanks to the generous folks at Savings.com and the #GreatTeacherGiveback, FOUR deserving teachers will each win $500 for their classroom! Teachers, you can also nominate yourself for this giveback! Simply head on OVER HERE to the nomination page and fill out the requested information. Nominations will remain open until August 19. 

Good luck teachers, and thank you for all that you do!
