My 1/17 Publix Trip - $77.45 for $32.77 or 58% Off

We had a rare “snow day” here in northwest Florida today, the schools were closed and so was the base where I work so the kids and I had got to hang out together all day and we had a pretty good time keeping the fire stoked and doing house stuff. Everybody pitched in and each kid made something for breakfast – eggs, toast, sausage, bacon and smoothies – it was pretty neat, of course that left me with cleanup detail but I’m delighted that they’re learning to cook. The girls went with me on the Publix trip and although I hate to go “off list” I couldn’t say no when all they asked for was fruit for smoothies and it was all on BOGO today! We bought $77.45 worth of groceries for $32.77, or 58% off after coupons. Here are the deals:

My 1/10 Publix Trip - $70.26 for $34.61 or 51% Off

There wasn’t a lot that excited me on sale this week at Publix and since there wasn’t an Apple Market coupon in the paper again this week I didn’t have a target price to reach so I just picked up a few staples on stock up prices like the Ocean Spray juice and the Ragu sauce. I am very happy to have saved over half off on several meals for the week including this beautiful chuck roast! This week I bought $70.26 worth of groceries at Publix for $34.61, or 51% off after coupons. Here are the deals:

My Plans For Blog Domination – an Undated Annual Blog Planner

My Plans For Blog Domination

I’ve been blogging here at Shopper Strategy since 2009 and I’ve learned a lot along the way. Have I made a bundle from my blog? No. Have I earned enough to keep me doing it for over 8 years? Yes I have! And of course there are other benefits, like getting to interact with awesome people online and having the privilege of trying out new products before they go widespread.

My 12/27 Publix Trip - $83.74 for $37.53 or 55% Off

We go through quite a bit of laundry detergent at our house so I’m always happy to stock up on a good Purex deal, and with the kids still out of school for the holidays I probably should have bought more of the Bagel Bites for snacks until they go back next week. Today at Publix I bought $83.74 worth of groceries for $37.53, or 55% off after coupons and $5/$50 Apple Market coupon from today’s newspaper. Here are the deals:

How Holiday Sales Help You Save Throughout the Year

How Holiday Sales Help You Save Throughout the Year

Well I thought I was all done with my pre-Christmas shopping but then a friend at work told me that Kohl’s had their Jansport backpacks on clearance so I had to make another trip back today and boy did I score! These backpacks all retail for between $59 and $89 but I got them on clearance today for between $4.80 and $12.80, PLUS I got to use a 30% off coupon AND I got $10 back in Kohl’s Cash. I saved a whopping $375.41 and that doesn’t even include the $10 Kohl’s cash. With five kids I seem to spend a small fortune on backpacks for back to school each year so I’m thrilled to have stocked them up for next year at these bargain prices.
