My Promised Publix Post

Caroline wanted her picture taken this afternoon! Notice her prized reusable shopping bags...she doesn't like it when the cashier takes them!
Sorry the picture is dark??

Sorry...once again, Blogger is messing up my spacing???????
My publix shopping was a HUGE success. I managed to stick to my budget. I have some really random things, but they were so cheap or free that I might as well buy them! :) This was a classic trip for stockpiling. There were only a few items that I needed, but I took advantage of some of the great deals to build up my supply. Next week, I will need to buy more milk, lunchmeat and fresh produce. I spent more time planning my trip transactions than normal because I was on a limited budget of $20 to spend. Remember, I spent $15 and $6 at Kroger/CVS on Saturday for this week's budget.
Oh, and "Q" means coupon and all my coupons that were under 50 cents were doubled.

WOW! That is amazing! I would love for our Kroger/Meijer to honor competitor coupons. Great job!

Stephanie said...

How on earth are you using two coupons for the same product?!? Teach me this trick! Way to go...very impressive!

Awesome shopper MENTOR!

This last trip to Publix (see my fb page), I actually remembered the Rite Aid coupon, plus I also used the January coupon from the Publix calendar! (YEAH!)

One thing, though, the Red Baron pizzas are on sale at Walgreens this week to, and they come to $2 there....a tad bit cheaper than Pub's.

Now, ONE QUESTION--WHY IN THE WORLD DO YOU NEED 20 CANS OF ROTEL! Ha! Ha!
