How’s 97% for good savings?!

It has been a while since I’ve posted a great Publix trip. I’ve certainly had many great Publix trips lately, but this one is just the icing on the cake!!

Today’s trip shows the importance of stacking coupons (combining a manufacturer’s coupon with a store coupon).

Here is the breakdown of my trip:
(2) Nabisco Mini Variety Packs – $5.99 – BOGO price $3.00 – Used $1.50 coupon = $1.50 each.

(2) Ronzoni Quick Cook Pasta – $1.29 – BOGO price $0.64 – Used $0.50 coupon (doubled) = $0.46 overage on each!

(2) Progresso Bread Crumbs – $2.09 – BOGO price $1.05 – Used $1.00 coupon = $0.05 each

(1) Hidden Valley Farmhouse Original Dressing – $3.39 – BOGO price $1.70 – Used $2.00 coupon = $0.30 overage!

(2) Milky Way Bare – $0.45 – Used BOGO coupon (doubled) = $0 each

(4) Sundown Vitamin B-6 – $3.59 – Used $1 manufacturer’s coupon and $6 off 2 Publix coupon = $0.41 overage on each!

(4) Sundown Vitabmin A – $3.29 – Used $1 manufacturer’s coupon and $6 off 2 Publix coupon = $0.71 overage on each!

My total before tax was negative $1.41!! After tax I only had to pay $1.69 for my $56.61 worth of groceries!!

What to do with all of those vitamins you ask? I plan to donate them to the food bank at my church and use them in Coupon Party goody bags.

75% Ain’t Bad!

Today’s Publix run wasn’t my best, but who can really complain about saving 75% off your bill? I bought so much that it wouldn’t all fit on my counter top, so thus the two pictures. I am a little disappointed with myself for going over my New Year’s resolution amount of $50 a week, but I have a lot for my depleted stockpile (after finishing the Pantry Challenge), items for Coupon Party goody bags, and great produce! I was even able to get an awesome deal on one of my hubby’s favorites – deli Genoa Salami! I could almost give it to him for Valentine’s Day he loves it that much. 🙂

So here are my numbers:
Spent $62.34
Saved $188.31

Part of my great savings came from a $5 Publix gift card that Publix mailed me last week. Around Christmas time I emailed the corporate office a request for a Publix calendar (they were full of great coupons, but only available in FL), but they were not able to send me one. I got the $5 gift card instead! Thanks Publix! You really do have awesome customer service!
