An Amazing Grocery Trip

I'm a little late in getting this one up, but since its one of THE BEST shopping trips I've had in ages, I just wanted to brag a bit! For this sale, I had a couple of things going on... 1. I was out of my fave coffee (and needed it badly), 2. Our office has switched to provide you own K cups for coffee, I will bring my own home brewed coffee, however, I wanted to have some K-Cups on hand for "emergencies", 3. Publix was offering a $10 off $50 gas card purchase with the purchase of $50 in groceries (pre coupon). So, I put together some deals that really worked for me and this is what I got....

2 Quaker Instant Grits
4 Hormel Compleats
1 Hefty Kitchen Garbage Bags
1 Yakisoba Noodles
1 Jenni-O Turkey Bacon
2 Betty Crocker Muffin Mixes
1 Yoplait Light with Granola 2pack
2 Coffee Mate Creamers
4 Eight O'Clock Coffees
1 Fruitplait 4pack
1 Caribou Coffee K-Cup Pack
2 All Laundry Detergents
1 Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing
1 Taco Bell Ranchero Sauce
1 Publix Coffee
2 Publix Diet Lemon Lime Soft Drink 12 packs

Spent: $47.06
Saved $67.04 or 59%

PLUS I got a $50 gas gift card for $40 saving 10% on future gas purchases!!!!!

Not too bad....


  1. Man, I'd love those sorts of gas deals, since it is a necessary evil. Great job on that shopping trip!

  2. I can't believe that your office actually went to supply your own K-cups. Those are expensive! I would bring my own, too. Or bring my own coffee maker to keep in the kitchen or breakroom.

  3. Actually, you can also buy the K-cup filters, and just use your regular coffee through the K-cup filters. That's the combination of the best from both worlds!
