Stocking Up For Holiday Baking At Publix 11/11


Here is my weekly trip to Publix this week. I said last week that I was going to make the effort to shop on Thursdays from now on but with school and open house yesterday, I did not make it home until well after Publix had closed.

In case you can't tell from the photo, I stocked up for the holiday baking season today. Publix has some amazing BOGO sales going on with holiday/seasonal products and only took advantage of a few. I also did not need any meat/poultry since I did end up going back to Publix last week to stock up on chicken at $1.99 a pound. I also was able to use a $3 off $30 Publix coupon as well as a $5 off $30 Winn Dixie coupon since my pre coupon total was over $60.

I spent a little more than usual (for me) today but I bake ALOT during the holidays and I couldn't resist the chance to stock up on some products that never go on sale. I also bought a few items for my new weekly recipe project. (see post on this on Monday) Here is the breakdown:

Total retail value of today's trip: $132.37
Total spent out of pocket: $36.77

Saved 72% in total
