Best Savings Percentage in Ages!
I generally try to just go to Publix once a week. Usually on Wednesdays to take advantage of the Penny Item Promotion. After going several months without having a printer or computer that would effectively print coupons, I kind of forgot about what great deals you could get using print at home coupons. However, a friend that is going through some very difficult times financially started asking me about couponing, and since she didn't have any newspaper inserts to start with, I got on the phone with her and walked her through printing and accessing the match up sites. While doing that, I realized that there were a LOT of coupons that went along with the current Publix junk food sales. I decided that a quick trip was in order --- football season is here and a bunch of snacks to accompany game day football watching is important! So.... here is how I did:
1 Publix Lemon Lime
3 Golden Grahams breakfast bars
3 Chex Mix
3 Betty Crocker Sugar Cookie Mix
Saved: $30.43 --- That's 78% --- My best savings percentage in AGES!
