Weekly Totals Link Up: Saved 63% At Publix On Tons of Fresh & Non-Processed Items

Spent $38 for $105 Worth
Happy 2013! I am so excited to start my second full calendar year of couponing! I am really finding that I have learned a lot from my shopping in 2012 and it is nice to know what types of sales and deals to expect in the year to come.

I was really excited to see that Publix had chicken on sale for $1.99 a pound this week as I expected and since we are eating a little lighter this week and next I mostly bought all fresh/non-processed items this week. It's been mostly soups and salads in our house and I am sure that my shopping trips lately have reflected that : )

I spent under $40 this week and was able to stock up on chicken, good cheeses, veggies, walnuts, pistachios, and grab cheap mouthwash and FREE Emergen C. I still have tons of milk and eggs from the holiday sales as well as lots of pantry staples so we really didn't need much this week.

I just barely hit my $60 before coupons so I was able to split up my trip and use two $5/$30 Winn Dixie coupons which really help lower my totals when most of my food has no coupons.

Breakdown of today's Publix Trip:
Total retail value: $104.46
Total spent: $38.74
Total saved: $65.72
Percent Saved: 63%
