Weekly Totals Link Up & Saved 63% At Publix Today 3/29

Not that clear/sharp because my camera's battery died so I used my phone...


How has your week been? Mine was a little hectic but it's good to be back in the swing of things after the craziness of Spring Break and then the following week catching up from Spring Break. I actually was able to do some real couponing in today's trip and I am finally feeling like I am back on track with coupon organization and grocery planning.

I wanted to make it to Target this week to see our newly renovated "Fresh Grocery" store but it didn't happen and I am hoping to go this weekend. Today's Publix trip was my only shopping this week and it was a pretty big trip.

This week's Publix ad lasts until Easter Monday so I broke up what I wanted out of the sale and bought some this week and will buy some next week to spread it out with our weekly shopping budget. I didn't find any good deals on fresh veggies this week so we will either eat what we have in the freezer (which is a ton) or swing by the local produce stand.

Today I finally was able to stack one of my $5/$50 Publix coupons with a $5/$30 Winn Dixie coupon from Enjoy the City because for the first time in a long time I hit $80 before coupons. That really helped with today's total since even after coupons and sales I ended up spending a little more than our targeted $50 a week and saving about 63%.

Don't forget to link up your weekly totals/shopping trip posts below and if you have a food blog come back on Monday for my first Mealtime Monday recipe link up!
