This Week's Publix Trip

Here is a photo of this week's Publix trip. After being out of town for a long weekend, we really needed a few fresh items. I am happy to say that it has been well over a week since we last grocery shopped which means that we have been spending less than $40 a week on groceries lately. That is a major improvement from what we were spending.

Here is the breakdown of today's trip:

Total Retail Value: $103. 54
Total Spent Out Of Pocket: $30.75
Saved: $72.70

That means I saved about 70% !
