HUGE Club Pub

What a great week Publix is having! The ad is full of MANY good savings!!! First, I got to shop by myself. That is such a rare treat for me. And it's so much faster and efficient! And second, everything that was on sale and I had a coupon for is something our family uses almost daily! So no wasted $$!

The loot:

Total before sales/coupons: $178.11

Coupons: $31.58
Sales: $67.51

Total out of pocket: $79.01

Savings: $99.09

I broke it down per item and I paid $1.19 PER ITEM!!!!!! That's pretty good. Soup, juice, pizza, pack of paper towels! That's what it broke down to for each individual product!

After Publix, I headed on over to Wallyworld to get some more things. I even ad matched and used a few coupons. And ended up spending $1.87 per item! So I did MUCH MUCH better at Publix. But sometimes, I just plain need things that (1)aren't on sale, (2)that I haven't stocked up on, and (3) that I don't have a coupon for.

I'm really going to be playing the grocery game lately. I'm really hoping to take on another store. But I may be shooting too high. We'll see.

I want to give a shout out to Sarah at Fiddledeedee for matching up the Publix advantage buys and coupons! That helped A LOT!

I hope everyone is enjoying this WONDERFUL weather - hopefully it won't go anywhere for a while! :-)

Added this afternoon:
I just realized that I TOTALLY forgot to use one of my $5 off coupons at Publix! Makes me SO mad! Oh well.


  1. Such great deals! I need to shop but I do not feel inspired. I need to take advantage of some deals I see! ;)

  2. i SOOOOO wish we had Publix here!! but alas, i am reduced to shopping Kroger. I was also able to go shpping without my little helpers- SOOOO refreshing....and perfect timing i REALLY needed to stockup. i didn't save AS much as you but at kroger i was able to spend 88.25 and save 76.45! yipee!!!
    Walmart wasn't as sucessful- however, formula and things not on sale are must have's sometimes!!!

  3. Isn't shopping alone so much easier? It's amazing, really!

    Thanks for the shout-out! I'm glad you like the advantage buy post. Great job on your deals - you've got me excited about my Publix run tomorrow!

  4. Woooo-hoooo! AWESOME!!! Am also wishing we had Publix! :)

  5. lindsay when i wqs taking Landon to chick alay today he asked me if i had a coupon in my purse. :) i said yes...ha!
    then when we rode bikes to the pig to buy rice krispie treat fixins he said.."i bet they have some sales!!"
    you are raising thrifty bright kids!


If you don't have anything nice to say, then, please don't say anything at all! THANKS!
