Grocery Shopping For The Deals This Week

My grocery shopping often looks very unbalanced. Let me assure you that I don't consider this type of trip to be balanced or enough to sustain use every week. I don't always blog every trip to Aldi I make (which is where I get most of our produce) because I don't my blog to just be showing my grocery trips. When I do blog the grocery trips I generally do my BIG trips to Aldi and my awesome coupon saving to Publix. I also have a nice stock of fruits and veggies in the pantry and freezer. That being said, this is what I got this week at Publix taking advantage of sales and coupons:

3 Half Gallons Hood Simply Smart Milk (this is ultra pasteurized so it will last quite a while)
1 Soft Soap Hand Soap
2 Propel Water 6 Packs
1 Emerald Almonds
2 Glade Candles
1 Crystal Light
3 Kibbles N Bits Dog Food
4 Bailey's Coffee Creamers
1 Publix Gummi Bears (penny item!)

Spent: $28.26
Saved: $38.03 or 57%

One thing I found interesting was that when I added it all up, if I had paid "regular price" with no coupons for just the milk and dog food (which would qualify as very basic and necessary groceries) I would have spent just about the exact same amount. So by combining the coupons and sales, I got the soap, propel water, almonds, candles, coffee creamer and gummi bears too! Not a bad deal all in all.
