This week's savings! (Publix)

Tonight, I spent $28.72 and saved $57.89 at Publix!!
(65-percent savings!)

I'm learning how to coupon and stockpile items, which I have never done before. So I have once again returned to Publix (for sale items only).

For years I have told my friends that Publix is simply "too expensive" and that I did all my shopping at Wal-Mart. After all, Wal-Mart does offer the best prices in town. HOWEVER, thanks to web sites like,, and, I am learning that Publix does have good deals WHEN teamed up with coupons, especially on their Buy 1 Get One Free products.

Here's what I got at Publix:

Mission Tortilla/Fajita, B1G1
-$0.75 manf 'net coupon
-$0.75 manf 'net coupon

Oh my gosh you did so well! Must feel like you beat that grocery store at it's own game:)

You save so much with all these coupons. I used to use coupons but now I am super lazy when it comes to grocery shopping. I do however live for the Express and Bath and Body works coupons.

Wow, go you. I am a huge Publix and have never minded paying a bit more for a joyful experience. If there was a nice WalMart near me I would probably check it out but there isn't. I will check out that site you referenced for Publix though.

*THANK YOU* (yep, I just cyper-shouted on your blog...giggle) I adore Pulix and I never, ever have any coupons. Oh my goodness, hugs to you for commenting on my post and sending the alert to me. I am behind in my google reader and am totally devastated to think I might have (gasp!) missed your post. Hugs!
