Weekly Shopping Totals Link Up: Saved 80% at Publix



This week I did something I never do. I split my shopping trip into three transactions. I had a bunch of $5/$30 Winn Dixie coupons with an June 30th expiration date that I found earlier this week while cleaning out my coupon cart. I HATE it when I misplace coupons and let them expire so I was determined to try and use three if possible today. I had a huge shopping list and some high value coupons so I knew I would reach $90 before coupons so that I could use three $5/$30 coupons.

My cashier was amazing and even though I was a little flustered breaking up my transactions and using the right coupons for each, she was super patient. Gotta love when you actually get a clerk who doesn't treat you like you are breaking the law by using coupons : )

I meant to go shopping yesterday but I am so glad I never got around to it because when I got home at the end of the night I had a $25 Publix gift card waiting for me in the mail from MyBlogSpark for an upcoming blog promo I am doing in the next week. Which means that after coupons, Ibotta and my gift card I only spent $6.44 of my actual household cash budget today. Which also means that I have enough in my budget to maybe even hit up Target! Sad life I lead...

Just a friendly reminder, most of the deals and sale prices are from the current Publix sale ad  which means they will be good through next Wednesday in Florida and Tuesday elsewhere. Some of the other deals are from the current Publix in store Advantage Flyers which are good for a few more weeks. Click though the links to print the coupons I refer to, due to the time sensitive nature of printable coupons some may not be available to print anymore. Feel free to comment which questions, suggestions or deals you have found!

Total retail value: $156.71
Total spent (before $25 gift card): $31.44
