Saved 95% At Publix- Lots of freebies and under $1

Spent $2.55 and saved $45!
 With last week's Publix ad not starting until Friday last week, I was pretty  much planning on skipping that ad all together. Other than laundry detergent and cookie mix there was nothing that caught my eye.

As the week went on I read about a bunch of good deals on sale items not from the weekly sale ad and I was planning on chancing that they would still be around tomorrow when I got back on schedule with my regular Thursday shopping trips.

But Justin needed carrots and celery for Turkey Soup he is making using the leftovers of a turkey we roasted for dinner tonight so I figured I would grab detergent, cookie mix and an assortment of freebies/moneymakers while I was at it so I could use a $5/$30 off coupon.

The Goody and International Delight deals as well as this sale on Smart Balance (not the BOGO one) should be good for awhile so no worries about them ending with Florida's sale ad today. Tomorrow I am planning a small trip with the new ad so I can get back on my regular schedule of shopping the first day of the ad.

Breakdown of today's Publix trip:
Total retail value: $47.62
Total spent: $2.55
Total saved: $45.07
