Yesterday was Wednesday, so that meant another Publix Penny Item Day! I wasn't quite as jazzed for this penny item, as it was the Publix Vanilla Wafers. While there is nothing wrong with them, we just usually don't eat many vanilla wafers. As a matter of fact, last time I donated to food banks following the April 27 tornados, there were 2 boxes of these in my box of donation stuff. These will probably end up in a donatin box too, unless I get motivated and make mini cheesecakes or something. Anyway, on to what I purchased....
4 boxes Kraft Deluxe Mac N Cheese/Velveeta Shells N Cheese
1 Duncan Hines Cake Mix
1 Trix Cereal
1 Publix Vanilla Wafers (Penny Item)
2 Knorr Pasta Sides
2 Magnum Ice Cream Bars - Caramel
1 Duncan Hines Frosting
1 Ocean Spray Blueberry
2 Crystal Light
1 Duncan Hines Brownie Mix
Spent: $24.86, Saved $24.78 -- just barely shy of a perfect 50%
I was kind of light on the coupons this time --- until I get a new computer, no internet printing for me -- not enough memory available! However, I did have coupons for the ice cream bars, the Ocean Spray Blueberry, the Brownie Mix (free when you buy 2 Duncan Hines products) and of course the vanilla wafers! One note on the ice cream bars --- the regular price on these is $3.99 --- and there are only 3 bars in the box! However, they were on sale for 2/$5, and I had $1 coupons for them making them .50 each. We really wanted to try them, but at the $3.99 price point, that wasn't happening. However, at $1.50 per box, I thought that was okay for a treat. OMG! Those things are like heaven on a stick! I can't see buying them at full price, but with a sale and coupon.... a little indulgence is okay! And they are definitely an indulgence. Yum.
