Saved 70% at Publix! (3/16)

This post is a week in the making...I was waiting till I went back to exchange some things and I didn't get back till yesterday...Oh well. I officially have no more room in my freezer so I think I will be taking a break this next week from shopping unless it's a need. 

My favorite buy was probably the Lucky Charms for $0.69 each! 

oop: $20.44
savings: $48.66
That's a savings of 70%!!!!
(I grabbed the wrong box of Bayer and didn't notice till I got home...So later on in the week I exchanged them for the 20 count. So the picture has the wrong boxes, but the prices are updated...)

I got everything that I wanted, except the frozen pretzels. I don't know if I was just not seeing them, (but I can never seem to find them at the Publix in Taylors) or they don't sell them. Oh well. I had already grabbed a box for $0.20 at Bi Lo earlier this week, and my freezer is REALLY full... Still, wish I had grabbed a rain check from last weeks sale at Bi Lo. Live and learn...

Here's what this week's haul got me! :)

(the prices are after coupons)
2 boxes of Lucky Charms: $0.69 ea.
Palmolive dish soap: $0.75
2 Resolve Spray and 1 Stick: $0.49 ea.
Snuggle Fabric Softener: $1.99
2 Ken's marinade sauce: $0.50 ea
2 Pepsi cola products: $0.83 ea
Publix frozen vegetables: $0.99
2 Gortmans shrimp: 2.00 ea
2 Bayer Advanced 20ct: $0.99 ea
2 Halls cough drops: $0.45 ea
2 containers of strawberries: $1.11 ea
1 lb of asparagus: $1.11 (I used the $2/$5 produce coupon for the strawberries and asparagus!)
Beechnut Mini meals: FREE!

I've been keeping record of my weekly shopping and savings in a spreadsheet for 4 weeks now and my year  to date savings is 52%. Alone, my Publix savings YTD is 69%!!!

Now....Here's hoping I stay out of the stores this week! We need to eat out of our freezer for a few days!

Anyone have any good ideas on what I should do with the strawberries in my fridge? I need to do something quick as we haven't been eating them quick enough! Smoothie recipes?!

  1. Wow Beth! You are amazing at saving with the coupons! What an inspiration to me. I really should cut some out and use them :)
    By the the tough mudder pic...just looked into it because my husband is thinking of doing one of their races. Have you?

  2. Ok I feel dumb...that pic below was just an ad--HA HA! Oops!

    1. Haha! I was a little confused for a second!! I'm glad I can be an inspiration! It's a fun hobby for me. I'm not like a crazy couponer you might see on the tv show. I think that's TOO crazy for me!!! :) Thanks for commenting!
