Another Great Week of Shopping!

Publix had some more great deals this week. I also got some good deals at Winn-Dixie and Walgreens. CVS is not even on my list this week. Check out my Walgreens trip below. This is a picture of everything I got at Publix today
Here is the breakdown:

(3) Peppridge Farm Texas Toast (50% off @ $1.44/1 minus 2 $.55 and 1 $.75 coupon)
(4) Bird's Eye Steam Fresh Veggies (50% off @ $1.14/1 minus 4 $.35 coupons)
1/2 Gallon Smart Balance Milk @ $3.59 minus $1 man. coupon and $.55 Publix coupon
(2) 1/2 Gallon Simply Smart Milk @ 2/$6 minus 2 $1 coupons
(2) Ritz Crackers (bogo @ 2/$3.39)
(4) Special K Cereal Bars (on sale for 2/$4 minus 4 $1 coupons
(7) G2 Drinks (on sale for $1 minus 7 $1 coupons from Publix paper at front of the store)
(20) Cans Del Monte Tomatoes (bogo @ 2/$1.17 minus 4 $1/5 coupons)
Bananas @ $1.36

Total Before Coupons and Sales = $80
Total Coupons = $27.30
Total Sales Savings = $31.28
Total After Coupons and Sales = $22.42!!

At Winn-Dixie I only got a few things that I couldn't pass up. Now, you have to promise not to laugh at me because I got 14 boxes of cereal last week. Well, cereal was just to good not to get again!! They have their GM cereals bogo and select Kellog's marked down to $1.77

I got 4 more boxes of Kix cereal @ 2/$4 and used 4 $.75/1 coupons
I also got 2 boxes of Rice Krispies @ $1.77 each and used 2 $1 coupons from here!

So, my total was 6 boxes of cereal for 5 dollars!

Don't worry, we already went through 5 boxes this week. I'm telling ya, my kids can devour some food.

Great job! I totally missed the deals on Texas Toast and Steamfresh. My kids love both. I might just have to get back to Publix tomorrow! Thanks for sharing your great tips!

I saw your comment on heartinprogress about your grocery budget being under 50 dollars each week for a family of six. That is amazing! We have a family of six but with three teenage boys that play football and a teenage daughter our budget is substantially greater than that each week.

I think what has kept me from coupons so much in the past is we hardly ever buy processed foods except for tortilla chips. The bulk of our budget is spent on fresh vegetables and fruit as well as soy milk and ground turkey. I plan on having a garden this year and I hope this helps.

I have recently started CVS and Walgreens and made my first runs this past weekend. I still feel inept at the process but am going to be patient to learn all I can.

I have enjoyed reading about your purchases and hope to glean from you valuable information.

I don't know if the $50 budget will be able to continue once we have 4 teenagers. I think they eat like monsters now, but I'm sure that will get even worse when they reach those teen years.
I have been wanting to start growing some tomatoes myself for a while. I don't think I can do a whole garden (I will probably kill the tomatoes). The reason I want to grow tomatoes is because I use them in so many of my recipes and they are a very expensive veggie to buy.
Don't worry, CVS and Walgreens will become like second nature in no time. Stick with it!!

Many of the man. coupons are from the Sunday paper. Some of the coupons are printable (which I have links to).
