Publix Trip is a SUCCESS!

Each week, I have set a personal goal of keeping our groceries to under $40. Last week, I didn't accomplish this goal, but came within reason. This week, I am on my way to another successful goal. We got up early to take Tim to the airport, came back and hung out for a bit, and then headed out to do some shopping.
I took careful thought this week in how to break down my transactions to make the most of my buck. Here's how it went...

Transaction #1:

11- Jolly Time Popcorn boxes 3/$3
1- Lender's Bagel- 80 cents
1- Publix White Grape Juice- 1 cent

Used: 11 $1 Q and the mystery item coupon

OOP: $1.00

SAVED: $24.96

Transaction #2

3- Gallon Milk- $3.19
2- Lysol Cleaners-$1.35 each
1- Publix White Grape Juice--1 cent

Used: 2- $1.00 Q Lysol

OOP: $10.75

Saved: $6.96

Transaction #3:
7- Kellogg's Cereal
2- Eggo Waffles
5- Betty Crocker Muffin Mixes
4- Green Giant Vegetables
1- Pubix White Grape Juice
2- Lawry's Marinade
2- Aunt Jemima Syrup
1- Smuckers Jam
2- South Beach Cereal Bars
1- Quaker Instant Oatmeal
1- Hellman's Mayo
1- Publix Sour Cream
1- Publix White Bread
1- Dozen Eggs
1- Green Bell Pepper

OOP: $20.10

Saved: $77.57

Grand Total at Publix: $31.85

I was supposed to be able to pick up my 17 bags of cat food, but they didn't hold it for me like they said. So, I reordered it and it will be here this week. The cat food is $3.49 and I have coupons for $3.00 off each bag to make it 49 cents each. I then have a Walgreens Register Reward for $10.00. So, I will buy a half & half and walk out owing around 10 cents! Not too bad!
