Weekly Totals Link Up: Saved 70% At Publix Today

Spent $37 for $122 worth of groceries.
I had a very fun week of shopping this week. I was able to save 70% at Publix today and I saved 55% at Target earlier this week on some fun groceries and household items. 

I loved this week's Publix ad. I had all the coupons I needed and everything was the right size/type/price to match my pre-planned list so the trip went quickly and smoothly. I had finally cleared some space out in our fridge and freezer thanks to a few weeks of eating mostly from our stock pile. So, clearly, the logical thing to do was buy tons of stuff to fill them back up to the brim again : )

I went for broke today with the frozen treats because we really do enjoy having a treat once a week but we never buy them because full price on those types of things is way too painful and unnecessary. Today I took full advantage of the sales from the June "Dairy Month" Yellow Ad. flyer since I don't know when we will see sales on some of those products again.

I was able to use a $5/$30 Winn Dixie coupon and I had a small money maker in the form of dog bones so even though I bought some non sale items and a whole chicken my Publix total was still pretty good. I did go over my usual $50 a week with my Target trip but all in all, I feel like I got alot for my money this week and I was able to stock up on things we need and use all the time so I am thrilled.

Make sure you check out my super fun giveaway of the Publix Smart Savings Booklets and some Winn Dixie $5/$30 competitor coupons too!

    3. I usually use the Press Journal or any of the Scripts Treasure Coast papers. I do find that they have very different coupons than the national match ups so I usually have to go through with my local sale ad and coupons and figure what will end up being a good deal for me.

    1. I am new here, so I am sorry if this has been asked before.....and I did look all over your site, and I couldn't find anywhere that you have a list of the best deals at Publix PRIOR to showing your weekly shopping. Did I miss it? or do you just post your shopping trips??
