Weekly Shopping Totals Link Up: Another Publix Trip With 62% Savings



I did it! I actually went to the grocery store and managed to not buy a single frozen item! We have just kicked off our own personal "find the bottom of the deep freezer challenge" and I am attempting to not buy anything frozen until the end of March when our Zaycon order arrives. 

Since I am refocusing our weekly budget to stock up on paper products, household items, and pantry staples this week's trip may look a little sparse when it comes to meat and other things we have on hand in the freezer.

While this trip may not look like much, I was able to get 36 double rolls of toilet paper, 120 Finish Gel packs, and almost 75 trash bags and everything else for $40. I also used two $5./$30 Winn Dixie Coupons.

I did spend $39 earlier this week on a good sized trip with lots of basics so that puts me around $80 for the whole week. It's right at the top of my weekly cash budget but since I only spent $9 the week before, I had plenty of grocery cash on hand. 

Breakdown of Thursday's Publix trip:
Total retail value: $106.83
Total spent: $40.74
Total saved: $66.09
Percent saved: 62%

  1. I also ordered the zaycon chicken, but split with someone, so I also need to make room in my one and only freezer for 20 lbs of chicken. Thanks for the inspiration to clear out the freezer and pantry :)

    It's going to be difficult to pass up those awesome frozen food deals, though.
