Weekly Shopping Totals Link Up: Saved 67% At Publix

I am finally back on a regular shopping schedule again, right in time for school to start back up and throw everything out of whack again : ) I was so happy with this week's shopping trip, thanks to some free product coupons, great sale/coupon stacks, and the ever amazing Ibotta app, I was able to only spend $30 this week. And since our dryer needed a somewhat pricy repair this week I was very happy to stay under budget.

I know that many of you who are new to reading Couponing & Cooking may read these weekly shopping posts and wonder if we eat meat, what we make for dinner, if we wash our hair etc. And I just wanted to let you all know that we do have quite a stockpile and a freezer full of Zaycon chicken, frozen turkeys, hot dogs, sausage, bacon, veggies, butter and tons more.

Thanks to couponing, I am able to stock up on things at rock bottom prices so that I may go weeks or months without buying laundry detergent or soap or pasta but that doesn't mean we don't wash our clothes, bathe or eat carbs. Check out my past weekly shopping trips to see how we shop the sale cycles.

Lately, I have been able to get some great deals on paper products due to sales, stacked coupons and some Ibotta offers. As long as it fits in my weekly budget, I always try to grab those deals because I find that I can go a month or more sometimes without seeing a good price on toilet paper and I hate paying full price for toilet paper : ) I was also able to use two $5/$30 Winn Dixie coupons since my total was over $60 before coupons.

 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!
