Weekly Shopping Totals Link Up: Saved 53% On Fresh Food and Paper Products at Publix

After a week+ recovering from surgery followed by a week in Colorado on vacation that was planned before my surgery, our fridge was looking pretty bare. We are a little limited in what I can eat since I am now gallbladderless so we have been sticking to eating from our Zaycon chicken stockpile in the freezer so I mostly picked up yogurt and veggies. I also took advantage of some Ibotta deals and stocked up on paper products too.

I know that from some of our weekly shopping trips you may wonder what we eat, use to shower with, and so on. But know that we have a large health and beauty/toiletries stockpile, very full pantry and freezer. Want to see what's in our stockpiles? Check out my Stalk My Stockpile series HERE! 

We are due for a big pantry cleanout/organization soon and I may even need to due some freezer organization since we are placing our fall order of forty pounds of Zaycon chicken soon too. I love that I can budget once every six months for our chicken order and then we really don't have to spend money every week on meat. I use our excess grocery money for the chicken order and it really helps us keep our budget down.

I didn't save much over 50% this week but I am totally ok with that since we were restocking the fridge on fresh items and I was able to get some of my favorite brands of paper products while still staying around $30 for the week. I only used a few coupons and a $5/$30 Winn Dixie coupon so this week's trip is an example of a great way to save buy shopping a store's sale cycles : )

Total retail value: $75.84
