Publix Trip 1/19- Saved 83%!



Free gum!


This week was the first time since I started couponing that I actually did not "need" anything. If I had not been able to get to the grocery store this week we would have been just fine with our frozen chicken, frozen veggies, Smart Balance milk and Egg Whites supplemented by our stockpile. When I told Justin that he said he was really starting to see how much couponing is paying off and he said that I should just skip the store this week. However, there were some good deals I could not pass up adding to our stockpile and since I only spent $21 total, I don't feel too bad about it : )


I finally found the Gas-X money maker deal and also snagged a decent number of freebies. I saved 83% so all in all it was a great week for me.
