Weekly Totals Link Up: Saved 83% and $81 at Publix


Spent $16, saved $81
Can you imagine paying almost $100 for these groceries. I was mind blown when I realized how much these would have been out of pocket with no sales or coupons. I didn't even buy any meat or much produce. To think back to the days when i would be been ok with paying full price for these things makes me cringe. 

This week was an amazing shopping week for me. I hit up CVS and saved 74% and then the stars aligned for me at Publix today and I was able to advantage of a gift card with purchase deal, a $5/$30 Winn Dixie coupon and tons of sales and coupons. I also had two coupons for FREE products from blog promotions and used three Publix Yellow Ad. Flyer FREE product coupons too. 

I was so excited when I called my Publix's and they told me that they would honor the recent FREE $10 gift card when you make a $50 purchase coupon from Target. Since it was a gift card deal coupon, I could also use the money off total purchase coupon as well. 

I was thrilled to stock up on baking supplies and Justin is very happy with cheap coffee. I may run back and do another transaction later this week for just chocolate chips and free ziploc containers so I can be completely stocked for the year. I thought I had bought enough baking chips during last year's sale but I ran out by June. This year I am making sure I buy enough during the holiday sales to last me the whole year. 

I am still banned by Justin from really buying any meat, frozen veggies or frozen items in general since our freezers are still both pretty full. We have been spending the last week or so making dinners from the meat and frozen produce we have on hand so it has been fun to slowly use things up. We did roasted one of our big turkeys and made some room but since I want to buy some hams during the Christmas week sale I will have to make a little more room before my frozen food shopping ban is over : )

Total retail value: $97.20

  1. oh i'm moving to wherever you are-- these coupon deals are amazing. I'm not sure that our Hawaii coupons are as good/ work the same way strange, though as cost of living is so very high we sure could use good coupons.

    Aloha,
    I'm stopping by from An Ephesians 5:33 Wife to say "hi" and to invite you to join for An Aloha Affair, a sweet gathering and growing together of creative souls. You are always welcome. Always.
