Weekly Shopping Totals Link Up: Saved 57% at Publix

Are you already feeling the stress and rush of the holidays? I know I am. I finally made it to Publix on Monday (to shop last week's sale ad and advantage flyers) and I had all intentions of going yesterday for this week's new ad but life just got the best of me. Between end the semester school/work stuff, planning a big Christmas party, and a few upcoming sponsored blog posts (get excited), I just never had time to get a list together and go to the store.

Thank goodness for a freezer full of Zaycon chicken, getting our produce share this week, and having lots of milk and eggs on hand from a past sale or else I wouldn't have been able to make meals or bake this week. I will probably be doing lots of shopping in the next week as we get ready for our Christmas party so it is a good thing I have been saving extra grocery cash.

Our produce share was great this week. See the photo below to see everything we got.

My trip wasn't anything special this week but I did have a few freebies and was able to get everything we need plus paper products for under $30. Can you tell that we had enchiladas this week? As usual, I used a $5/$30Have you already shopped this week's Publix ad? Get any good target deals? Make sure to link them up below so I can add them to my list for next week!
