Shopping is fun right?  Well its even more fun when you can score an awesome deal.  Most of my friends and family either think I’m nuts, want to get in on the savings or their eyes glaze over when I talk about my coupons and how I save money on anything I can.

I want to share an example of how I shop and let you all decide if its awesome or totally insane!

What do Old Navy & Publix have in common? Nothing really except that this week you can score an awesome deal combining their promotions!  Publix has a coupon on the very back page of their ad  for $10 off a $50 Old Navy, Gap or Banana Republic Gift Card – Um, that’s 20% off and I haven’t stepped foot in Old Navy yet!

Old Navy also gives away tons of coupons on their Facebook page each week in a little game called Barker’s Bones.  This week they have a $10 off $50 printable coupon in their ad too.

So if I redeem my $50 gift card (that I’ve only paid $40 for) I can actually get $60 worth of stuff!  I’m up to 33% off….Now all I need is a great sale.

Old Navy just so happens to have every single sweater in the store Buy One Get One Free, coats at 60% off and a TON of clearance. Ahhh!

I went today and grabbed 3 cute shirts, a tube dress for my cruise, 2 sweaters and a pair of jeans and still had 88¢ left on my gift card which they kindly returned to me in cash. My out of pocket cost was only $40 for everything shown below. The sweaters alone were $26.50 each regular price.  You could easily do something similar to pay for Christmas gifts or update your winter wardrobe.

Alright, if you think I’m nuts you are free to stop reading… if you want in on this deal head to Publix before 12/14 (12/15 if you live in FL).  If you want this weeks sale items (BOGO sweaters, 60% off coats etc) print out your $10 coupon now and head straight to Old Navy with your gift card (these are only valid til tomorrow 12/11).

If you want to wait, next week’s sale will be good too:

Layering Camis $2
Men’s Slippers $5
Performance Fleece $5
Jingle Jammies $8
Men’s & Womens Wool Blend or Frost Free Jackets $30
Coupon for $20 off $100 in the Old Navy Flyer (Hint: if you really need a lot of clothes, you could buy 2 gift cards at Publix this week and save them for this coupon next week!)
