Weekly Totals Link Up: Saved 65% At Publix- A Huge Shopping Week!

Spent  less than $70 for almost $200 worth.
I had a HUGE shopping week this week. Not only did I grab some amazing deals at CVS on Tuesday but today's Publix trip was quite possibly the biggest single shopping trip I have had since the Holiday sales ended in January. I was able to stack some great coupons with good sale prices and great deals on not just groceries but lots of household products as well. I wanted to take advantage of the Labor Day ad and get us well stocked on things to last until the holiday sale ads start in November.

Even though I "only saved 65%" this week, I am beyond thrilled with what I was able to get for $68. My trip was a great combination of things we needed for the week as well as stocking up on lots of basics and staples. I was really excited to get a decent deal on sugar since I haven't been able to find any good sales on it since the holidays and I HATE having to pay full price for it.

I did dip into my reserve grocery money this week but that's ok because many of the things I bought will be used for week's to come and end up saving us money in the long run when I don't have to pay full price for them. Justin went shopping with me tonight so we did end up splitting our trip up into two transactions so we could use two $5/$50 Winn Dixie coupons which helped bring our totals down a bit too.

Total retail value: $196.88
