Sweet Day at Publix!


I have kind of slacked off on my posts about saving money on my coupon shopping trips. I guess I am so used to saving enormous amounts of money that it isn't as "big" of a deal anymore. I do want everyone to know though, that I AM still saving enormous amounts of money and this is one "whim" (couponing) that has not been placed to the side!!

I did not take a photo of my buys for today...most of it needed to go straight in the freezer/fridge, but here is the breakdown:

What I bought:
4 pints of Starbucks ice cream
( free! can't wait to try it! one is chocolate chip coffee! Mmm!)
4 packages of Morningstar Farms frozen "meats"
($1.39/each)
3 bags of Dove chocolate
($1.15/each, yeah, I didn't need these...or did I?)
6 (4pk) Yoplait Yoplus Yogurt
(.25/each)
1 loaf of Pepperidge Farm Oatmeal bread
($2)
1 gallon of milk
($2.25)
2 containers of Reddi-Whip topping
(.50/each)
(Noah begs to buy this all the time for waffles, so it was finally a good deal!)
2 bags of Back to Nature granola
($3.79 for both)
1 bar of Velveeta Cheese
(.80)


Total: -78.25

Sales: -35.17


Coupons: -21.16

Total after sales and coupons:

$21.30
Total Savings:
$56.95

I just love coupon shopping! Other than the sweets I bought this week, I really bought healthy stuff! I really love Dove dark chocolate...those three bags will last me for MONTHS and MONTHS! I only spent $21 and I don't really need much else this week, but Kroger is having an awesome sale on Pillsbury dough products, which I love to have on hand for quick recipes. Not the healthiest thing in the world, but in moderation! ha!

Thanks for posting this. I didn't comment on it earlier, but I read it, and got some of the deals before they were over. I love the Morningstar Farms veggie "meats", and the Fiber One yogurts, and when they are that cheap, I love to stock up!
I also bought Cheerios. They were B1G1 at mine, and get a free Publix bag with purchase. Andy fussed at me though, because I had just bought several Cheerios, so we now have like eight boxes, all different flavors. (Honey nut, plain, banana, multigraiin, etc) Our cabinets are full!
