Weekly Shopping Totals Link Up: Saved 69% at Publix- Stocking Up On Snacks


My Publix trip was a little frustrating today. To start it off, I thought that my coupon trades would be in the mailbox today when I got home from work but they had yet to show up. I was really looking forward to getting some very cheap Dove Men's Body Wash and maybe even some moneymaking Poise items but I guess I will just have to run back to the store early next week and hope to grab the deals. 

Once I got to the store, I found that alot of items on my list were not priced as advertised in more store or were out of stock (FREE Cascadian Farms Granola Bars). I really struggled in not buying any frozen items but I am so proud of myself for resisting those aisles completely. 

We are doing well in our clean out the freezer challenge and in the last week or so we have eaten/cooked/used: a nine pound ham, 3 pounds of chicken, a box of puff pastry, a tub of butter got moved to the fridge, a tub of cool whip got moved to the fridge, a few pieces of frozen bread, some frozen veggies, and a package of frozen Butoni pasta. It seems like alot but I feel like we have barely made a dent. We are going to have to get much more serious about it before our Zaycon chicken arrives at the end of March. 

We don't usually have too many snacks in the house but this week I did take advantage of a few good deals to stock up on some snack items to have on hand over the next few weeks. Other than the super deals, I really just grabbed our usual weekly salad and Greek yogurt and not much else. I will be set on baking M&M's for awhile too : ) 

I managed to hit $65 before coupons so I used two $5/$30 Winn Dixie coupons. I spent $11 earlier this week but even so I managed to stay under $50 for the week.
