Weekly Shopping Totals Link Up: Saved 94% on $140 Worth at Publix

I have not had a grocery shopping trip like this one in forever. I was so excited when I made my shopping list and I went to the store yesterday with my fingers crossed to actually find all the deals and moneymakers I was looking for. I spent under $9 for over $140 worth of stuff.

Love that for under $10 I got lots of Greek yogurt, tons of money making Nutri Grain bars, some veggie pasta, body wash, beans, dish soap and so much more. I split my trip up into two transactions so I could use two $5/$30 Winn Dixie coupons too.

I was shocked to find that my store had everything single thing in store and all my coupons and prices matched up perfectly. I was able to find an amazing cashier and I was literally in and out in 45 minutes or less. I am so proud of myself for sticking to my "find the bottom of the deep freezer" challenge/commitment and I bought nothing that goes in the freezer. Have to make room for our Zaycon chicken order

We are really working  hard to "clean out" our freezer, pantry and fridge so I really only got the super deals plus some fresh stuff like eggs, yogurt, salad and some fruit.

With the craziness of our very busy wedding season kicking off I have yet to make it to Target or CVS in the last few weeks but I am going to try really hard to make it there next week. Since I only spent $9 yesterday I have plenty of grocery budget cash left to spent elsewhere: )

  1. WOW!! Congrats! I love how you break everything down! I was wondering what SS and RP means? Also where do you get all your coupons? I tried last week using the Sunday paper, ads, ibotta app, and a few online coupons and just got over whelmed and nothing matched up. I'm just getting kinda bummed. I feel like I'm missing something!
