Weekly Totals Link Up: Saved 74% At Publix


I don't know about you but I have almost been too busy to shop/coupon the last few weeks. I planned a coupon light trip today since I just couldn't bring myself to sort through my stacks of inserts and printable coupons that need to be organized before they take over my kitchen. Most of my coupons were ones I printed this week and set aside for this trip.

Justin went to Publix with me today and we kind of just let loose and grabbed a couple of things that weren't on my list and were in no way rock bottom deals. It's nice everyone once in a while to just forgot the list and get what you want :  )

Even though we did some impulse shopping I managed to save 74% thanks to some moneymaker baby food, two $5/$30 Winn Dixie coupons and $10 worth of Boar's Head for free thanks to an up coming sponsored blog post. I managed to get a few other free or under $1 items and since we didn't really need anything I kept my shopping totals really low this week.

Maybe I will get around to going to Target and CVS one of these days but for now I am enjoying living out of the pantry/fridge/freezer/stockpile and not spending much after the expenses of the holidays.

Don't forget to stop by and enter my two current giveaways! $150 Container Store Gift Card and a FREE Product Coupon from Edwards Pies.

    1. Nice trip! Have you tried getting your husband into the couponing world? We do it as a couple and it helps to cut down on any of the unplanned items (unless we take our kids)! Still and awesome trip though!! Just think what you would have paid if you weren't a savvy couponer!!
