Publix Shopping Trip

I must say I have been very disappointed in meat and dairy lately, however, I made a great trip to Publix today.  Just wanted to share.  I have been at $50/wk for groceries, but I spent $61 today.  $25 of it was meat!!!  I actually bought a lot of food.  I really could have done so much better.  This meat thing is going to be the death of my great shopping trips!

This was 4.5 lbs of pot roast, 4 lbs of ground beef, 4 lbs chicken quarter (which were the only things that were a good deal at .59/lb.  The rest was mostly $1-$2.  10 boxes of pasta, 6 cans of tomato sauce, 3 boxes of Cheerios, 4 boxes of Mac n Cheese, 2 boxes of Italian Ice, 1 box pancake mix, 3 boxes of uncrustables, 2 tubes of Pillsbury cinnamon buns, 1 tube of Pillsbury crescent rolls, 18 eggs, 4 peaches, 4 zuccinni, 1 pint strawberries, 1 package oreos, and 1 pint International Foods creamer.

I am pretty happy with this trip!  This is what I call stocking up.  I bought sale items, used coupons and lots of them.  My cabinet is a bit messy.  I am not so good in that area, but at the very least, we have food and we didn't break the bank to get it!  
Let me finish up this post by saying, I am no "Money Saving Mom" as she could probably get all this for $1.95, but I feel good about it.  I spent $61 on a bill that should have been $120!  Yay!

Any good news shopping trips?  I have heard from a friend of mine who made her first "Southern Savers" trip.  Very proud!  Please, tell me your news!


  1. Some of the great deals I got at Publix today.
    Purex laundry detergent was on sale for $4.99 ($3 off) plus I had a BOGO coupon.
    Purina One Dog food was $3 off plus a $3 off coupon.
    Crisco Olive Oil BOGO plus 2 $1 off coupons got me 2 bottles for $3.89, which normally should cost 11.78!
    Frosted Mini Wheats BOGO plus $1.50 off coupon, made two boxes only $2.69.
    Thanks for all the great tips!

  2. Awesome!!! I love the whole BOGO thing. Can totally cut the bill down. That is one big reason I shop either Publix or Winn Dixie.
