Today's Publix Trip & Weekly Totals Link Up 2/23


The only place I shopped this week was Publix. I had a $5/$30 Publix coupon from last week's Viva Italia flyer and a $5/$50 Albertson's coupon from yesterday's paper plus a $25 Publix gift card. My total before coupons (but after sale prices and BOGO's) was $81 so I was just barely able to use both coupons together. After my gift card and coupons, I only paid $8.98 for all our groceries this week so we will get to put plenty of extra money from our grocery budget cash into our short term saving envelope (for our spring break cruise!).

There were lots of good sales I didn't take advantage of this week since we are really well stocked on pastas, tomatoes, soups, sauces and meats. 

Also, be sure to check back Monday for a menu plan/recipe link up!

Here is the breakdown of today's trip:
Total retail value: $113.52
Total spent out of pocket after coupons and gift card: $8.98
Total saved: $102.99
Percent saved: 91%
