Weekly Totals Link Up: Saved 76% At Publix 6/14

Spent $29 for $120 Worth of Groceries
This was a really fun week of shopping and saving at Publix for me. There were lots of things on sale BOGO that I rarely see go BOGO and I had some great coupons too. Our fridge/freezer/pantry are super stocked after a couple weeks of great shopping so I was able to grab milk and salad to supplement them while grabbing lots of fun deals too.

I have said it before but I will say it again, the reason I love couponing is because I have plenty of the basics on hand at all times. We can grab a few chicken breasts out of the freezer or a bag of frozen veggies or a box of pasta from the pantry and I never have to pay full price for it when I need it. I can buy things when they are at rock bottom prices and use them over the course of a few weeks or even months.

This week I was able to get four boxes of fish fillets for free, free tomatoes, cheap hot dogs and even some fun summer treats to have on hand over the next few weeks of ultra humid weather. No don't worry, we don't plan on eating all four boxes of frozen treats before next week. In fact we almost never buy them because the thought of paying $5 for a box of ice cream is not something I enjoying thinking about. But at these prices I was able to stock up so we can have them on hand for when we want a little treat.

After a crazy shopping week last week, I restrained myself and only shopped at Publix this week. I also had a $5 off Publix breakfast sale coupon and a $5 off Winn Dixie coupon too. I am hoping to hit up Target this weekend if I get a chance too. Remember to link up your shopping/savings posts below and share your deals with all of us! (It's working now, sorry!)
