Just a few paper towels

Inspired by Kelly at I Love Publix, I made a run to Publix for a few essential items. ;) I ordered the Target Bounty Paper Towel coupons off of Ebay and patiently waited for them to arrive. My goal was to get my paper towels for free, plus a few other things.
20- Bounty Paper Towel- $1.25 each (20- $.50 TQ and 20- $.25 MQ doubled)= $5.00
1- Milk- $2.25 (no coupon)
2- Bush's Baked Beans- $1.15 each ($1.00/2 MQ)= $1.29
30- Kool Aids- $.20 each (no coupon)= $6.00
3- Publix Sugar- $.85 each (3- $2.00 wyb 10 Kool aid)= free plus overage
2- Raid- $3.89 each (2- $2.00 PQ and 2- $2.00 MQ)= free plus overage
4- Dan-o-nino Yogurt- $1.00 each (4- $1.00 MQ)= free
5- Reach Floss- $1.49 each (5- $.50 MQ doubled and 5- $1.00 PQ)= free plus overage
5- Apple & Eve Juice- $1.39 each (5- $.50 MQ doubled and 5- $1.00 PQ)= free plus overage
Used $5.00/$25.00 competitor coupon
Total: $83.74
Total after coupons: $2.66 ($.27 before tax)
It's a shame that we have to pay tax! hahahaha! Seriously, if you haven't checked out I Love Publix, shame on you! I head over there every day for my daily Publix inspiration. It's amazing how many items she can buy for such little money. As a matter of fact due to her awe inspiring posts on pork and charcoal, I was able to figure out my own charcoal deal that I am going to be able to use here in my area. Thanks Kelly!

Good lord woman!

That is some bounty!!!! Ha! Ha!

I cannot believe the amount of paper towels you bought. I'm sure the cashier LOVED seeing you in line! ;)

I've never been to that website; is it better than the respective CVS one?

I finally de-subscribed to the CVS one because I was never using it.

But, some of the deals you posted I had not heard of it....of course, I'm not sure I've even looked at Pub's deal this week since we went out of town...

Thanks for always inspiring me!

I must have missed this post. Man, I'm salivating over those Bounty paper towels (oh wait, I have those in my stockpile too)! LOL.

I love Publix.
