Saving on Groceries At Publix

I haven't posted a grocery shopping trip in a couple of weeks because other than fruit, we really haven't needed much around here. I almost bypassed shopping on Wednesday, but I was out of coffee, and for me THAT is a necessity!

So, while the coupon deals haven't been staggeringly good lately, I did take advantage of a couple of them -- mainly convenience stuff.

Here is what I bought:

1 Pack Fig Newtons (I LOVE these and they never seem to be on sale, but this time, they were BOGO! Woo hoo!)
4 Betty Crocker Mashed Potatoes
2 Totino's Pizza Stuffers
3 Hormel Compleats Ravioli
1 Publix Sandwich Cookies (Penny Item!)
1 Peter Pan Peanut Butter
2 New England Coffee (not my regular brand, but pretty good)
1 Kraft Salad Dressing
1 Kraft Barbeque Sauce
2 Green Giant Frozen Vegetables
1 12pk Angel Soft

Spent: $30.54
Saved: $32.48 or 51%

Is it just me, or is it absolutely crazy that this small amount of groceries would have been over $63 if I hadn't shopped the sales and used coupons?


  1. That is nuts. I started couponing a few months ago, and I'm just amazed at how much it actually costs to buy groceries - and I can't believe I paid it! :)

    Nice job! And I LOVE fig newtons too. Once I start eating them, I kind of can't stop. heh

  2. Nice work! I wish there was a Publix here--it's such a great grocery store.

  3. I DO love Publix -- but I divide my shopping between there and Aldi -- which is really easy since they are across the street from each other!
