My 11/16 Publix Trip – $244.51 for $63.57 or 74% Off

Wow – I haven’t spent this much at the grocery store in a LONG time, but my excuse is that I’m not planning to make a grocery trip at all next week since there won’t be a new ad until next weekend.  Oh, and I did a bunch of Thanksgiving dinner shopping so that added up quick.   I’m super happy to have stocked up on cheese again since we just ran out in the freezer and we use a lot of it for tacos and homemade pizzas.  We haven’t seen any good sales on sodas lately so I’m also happy to have had qs to match with the Coke sale today cuz I simply cannot run out of my Caffeine Free Diet Cokes ;)  I had a $3 off $30 Publix coupon from the Fitness and Nutrition Challenge, and my mom gave me hers too so I made hubby go with me and between us we also used $25 Register Rewards.  Today I bought $244.51 worth of groceries for $63.57, or 74% off!  Here are the deals:

  1. Great job, as usual! ;)
    What did you end up paying for the Diet Coke? That wasn’t on my list for this week, but now that I see it on your trip, I may just add it!
    Thanks. :)

  2. Thanks Lynette! Sorry I left the Diet Cokes off the list – I’ve just added them in :) They were B3G1 free and on sale for $4 each 12 pack so after qs I spent $2.25 per 12 pack and I just found out that the coupon has reset (I was under zip 30187). Grab some qs before they’re gone!

  3. It’s just not funny that you spend $63.57 and then say “I don’t usually spend this much”…ugh!! Again, love seeing your shops and really, really wish I could come shop with you!!

  4. Oops – I’m sorry! Really not trying to brag! I actually forget that I used to spend about $350 a week now that I’ve gotten used to spending less than that in a month :) You’re cracking me up though girl!!

  5. I’m with YOU, Janet! I’d love to tag along with Denise sometime as well — her shopping trips are awesome!!!!

  6. How did you use the

    “-FREE B2G1 Vanity Fair Napkins WYB Plates, Bowls or Cups Publix Yellow Flyer, Happy Thanksgiving 11/12/2011 (exp 12/2/2011) (and this one)”

    to get three packages of napkins when the coupons says free napkins when you buy two plates, bowls, or cups?

  7. Oh no! Apparently I can’t read :( Thanks very much for pointing this out because I did the deal wrong. They were very busy at the store so they didn’t catch it either but now I feel bad. I don’t want to encourage others to use coupons incorrectly so I really appreciate you letting me know!

  8. My 2 vanity fair printables said off 1/1 any vanity fair product…so i was able to buy 2 bowls and get free nampkins ;)

  9. Thanks Christie! That’s exactly what I should have done :)
