My 11/2 Publix Trip – $96.71 for $27.11 or 72% Off

There wasn’t a whole lot on my list this week, but the kids and cats will be happy!  I used some more of my awesome coupons for free Dole products in order reach $55 so I could use a $5/$55 Winn Dixie catalina.  These were not the best deals ever on cereal but we go through LOTS of it, so I’m fine with the price.  People often ask about how to determine what a good stockup price is, and today’s cereal purchase is a perfect example.  If you go through a box or two of cereal a month, then you can easily hold out for prices in the range of $1 to $1.25 per box, purchase four boxes or so, then wait for the next big sale.  On the other hand, if you go through two or more boxes a week like my family of seven does, then your average stockup price will be higher because it’s impossible to buy enough at the lowest price to last for three or four months until the next great sale.  Today I bought $96.71 for $27.11, or 72% off after coupons, $2 RR and a $5/$55 catalina from Winn Dixie.  Here are the deals:
