Club Pub

I haven't posted any of my savings in a while. I've been doing my Publix shopping (cutting ANY corners we can these days!) and it's been going really well. I find myself less and less at Walmart - praise the Lord! And my weekly trips to Publix have been in the $20-$30 range per trip!! :-)

Total before savings: $98.04

Coupon savings: $28.49

Sale savings: $32.94

Total out of pocket: $36.61

This made the yogurts $0.33/each, bags of frozen biscuits $0.70 each! The veggies were practically pennies a bag, granola bars and cereal $1.00/box.

The only things that I got that weren't on sale or that I didn't have a coupon for were some bread flour (yes, I'm attempting my sourdough bread recipe again and have to get the starter going again!) and some potato flakes (to feed the starter), and the eggs - which I guess were on sale..they were a great price!

Also, has anyone else noticed the lack of really good CVS deals lately? They just haven't lured me in. I hope next week is good, because I have some ECBs I need to use!! :-)


  1. Isn't Publix the best?! This past week was a really good one for me too. I got lots of fresh produce, as well as coupon deals, and still saved a ton. It's a good thing for me because I loathe Wal Mart. :)
    As for CVS...I hardly even go anymore. I go when my ECBs are about to expire. The past couple of months, their deals just haven't seemed appealing enough for me to work up some scenarios. Hopefully things will improve. :)

  2. Woohoo! Good job on your deals :) I have been literally praying for Birds Eye to go on sale, so I hope my store is well-stocked when I go!

    Is your sourdough bread recipe on the blog? I'll have to search for it. That's something I've always wanted to make!

  3. Lindsay i need a break down on how you exactly do the savings at publix. Is it all coupons you cut out of the paper??

  4. WOW!!! what a great trip!!! NONE of the stores here are as good as publix ;( also, how do you get SOOO many coupons?! do you get multiple papers, print for the web, etc? my box is PATHETIC compared to yours! haha

  5. i havent been to cvs in awhile, and only when ecbs are expiring, i'm even ashamed to say i accidentally let some expire. they really haven't had good deals on anything i remotely need. great job on publix! that is great! wish we had one of those!

  6. Lindsey - I may have to get you to do a blog on baking bread. I have been wanting to try this for awhile but not quite sure how to start the whole thing. Hope you have a good rest of the week and hope to see you guys soon!



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