Publix Shopping Trip 2.23.2014

I am loving couponing. I love saving money on things my family needs plus extra to give to others.

I went to Publix by myself tonight. It was so peaceful. I could think clearly...well kind of. haha It was a wonderful time. This is definitely up in the top three reasons why I love couponing...my time.

A couple days ago, Nathan purchased black printer ink for me so I could start printing coupons again. Plus I wanted some free picture prints for my home. :D I was happy with what I was able to print.

Here is what I was able to get:

1 Gallon milk
6 Greek sour cream
2 Yakisoba noodles
2 Hanover black beans
10 Plum Organic Pouches
2 Happy Baby Pouches
7 Pepperidge Farm Bread
1.5 lb Drumsticks
2.30 lb Bananas (I will receive .50 back from Checkout51)
3 Progresso Recipe Starters
2 Wishbone Dressings
4 Del Monte Veggies
2 Hunts Tomato Sauce
4 Bertolli Sauces
2 ICBIN Butter
2 Hormel Pepperoni Packs
1 Hunts Whole Tomatoes
4 Cascadian Farms Granola
4 Krave Cereal (perfect for a special treat for the girls/kids for small group)
3 EAS Lean Protein Bars

Total Saved: $101.55 or 67% 

Total Spent: $50.70 

I used a combination of newspaper coupons, printable coupons and store/competitor coupons. This Publix takes Target coupons so I printed a handful out to use. Plus I found a $2 off Publix chicken when you buy 4 participating Hunts/Progresso items.

The fruit pouches were more than I originally planned but they were still cheaper than purchasing them at Target plus my girls will be so excited since I do not buy them all the time. Also, the pepperoni were .70 more that other stores.

I know there were not coupons for Bertolli this time around but that is Nathan's favorite sauce so I had to get him some. :D Makes it easier for me as well.

This will have made me go over my monthly budget but I wanted to try to stock up on extra items because next month I will be doing a new challenge. Stay tuned!

What do you think of my savings? I was so happy and my cashier was excited for me...what could be better than that?!
