Saved 81% and $170 At Publix

Got everything in all three pictures for under $50. Saved $170

Today's Publix trip was so HUGE that I needed three different pictures to show it all. I saved $170 and had close to $10 in MONEYMAKERS and lots of items under $1! I also was able to use two $5/$30 Target printable coupons too.

Today's trip was almost a disaster. I actually spent a decent amount of time getting everything ready for this trip and I had an extensive list with prices, coupons, totals and the breakdown of what went in each transaction. When I walked into Publix, I realized that my list was sitting on the counter at home. I really didn't feel like going back to get it so I just winged it. Shockingly I actually got everything on my list and manged to get it all worked out in my head. Not gonna lie, I am pretty proud of myself : )

Too much to all fit in one pic

The most exciting part of my shopping trip was finding that my Publix started carrying the the trial sized Crest White Strips again! I hadn't seen them since my crazy moneymaking Valentine's Day shopping trip. They weren't on clearance like they were in February but they still made me $1 each. I have tons of $7 off coupons (without the travel sized exclusion wording) but I only used eight due to the 4 like coupons per transaction limit and not wanting to split my trip up more than twice.


We are having a big Christmas party on Friday so I stocked up on tons of stuff for that as well as items for all the dishes and desserts I will be bringing to all of Christmas dinners and parties we are invited to.

We actually have a dinner party or family event every night from now until December 26th so we didn't need any fresh veggies or fruit. I wanted to grab some of the great deals on meat right now but our freezer is still too full with our stockpile and party prep so I am going to have to wait on those. My cart was actually overflowing so it's probably good that I skipped the big turkey and ham I was thinking of.

Since I never went to Publix last Thursday today's trip used my grocery cash from that budget and then I will be hitting up Publix one last time this Thursday or Friday to get the fresh items for our party.
