All About the Snacks

This week's quick trip to Publix to take advantage of the Penny Item was pretty much all about the snacks, and other non-food stuff. College football started last night, and Saturday, my beloved Alabama Crimson Tide will kick off at 11:21 a.m. Football season arounds here means more teenagers in my house on Saturdays, which means more junk food will be consumed. So, I took advantage of the BOGO deals this weeks and added some bags of chips and snack mix to my cart. This is how I did --

6 Hamburger Helper
2 Publix Diet Lemon Lime
1 All Laundry Detergent
4 Glade Candles
2 Publix Sour Cream
3 Chex Mix
1 Lay's Potato Chips
2 Noodles
1 Publix Tortilla Chips (Penny Item)
1 Pedigree Dog Food

The dog food was on sale BOGO, so with the 1 coupon I had for it, it was .34 cents a pound, which is much cheaper than the price I pay when buying the 52 pound bags at Sam's --- of course, on a day to day basis, it is cheaper to buy it at the Warehouse Store, but when I can get it under their price, I grab it! Without the coupon it would have been more per pound than I normally pay, and that wouldn't have been a great deal! It pays to know your prices!

And now that I review the receipt carefully, I realized that the check out girl gave me the Wednesday Senior Discount ---- hmph, should I be insulted?!?!??!!??!? :-)

So, final total, I spent $24.41, and saved $35.85 or 59%

I'm planning to hit up Aldi after work for some fruits and veggies!

  1. That's a really nice savings there. I wish we had better sales like you have. Yeah, paying attention to unit prices has helped me save. It's worth it to have a price book, even though there is a little work involved with it.
