My 2/7 Publix Trip - $94.90 for $40.60 or 57% Off

I’m looking forward to making turkey wraps with the Flatout Bread and Publix turkey, but when I got to the car with my purchases I realized that the turkey didn’t ring up as BOGO so I went right back in to the customer service counter. Since they were marked BOGO and the Publix Promise guarantees that if an item rings up higher than the advertised price the customer gets one of the item for free, I ended up getting both packages of turkey for free. I wish I’d been paying attention at checkout, I could have saved myself the second trip in, but I was happy to get my thirteen bucks back! Today I bought $94.90 worth of groceries at Publix for $40.60, or 57% off after coupons. Here are the deals:

My 1/31 Publix Trip - $83.32 for $37.27 or 55% Off

I had planned to do the gas card deal today for another $10 off my bill but my store was out of the Diet 7Up 12 packs that I wanted and I didn’t make the $50 limit. If I’d had more time I would have picked something else up because all I needed was ten more bucks worth of stuff to get ten bucks off, but it’s been that kind of a day! I still had a pretty good trip I think, today I bought $83.32 worth of groceries at Publix for $37.27, or 55% off. Here are the deals:

Why You Should Use Freezer Meals Instead of Hitting the Drive Thru

Why You Should Use Freezer Meals Instead of Hitting the Drive Thru

Your son’s soccer practice got out late and you’ve forgotten to take out something for dinner. It’s already 7:30, and you have no idea what in the world you’re going to feed your family. Your daughter is in the back seat complaining how hungry she is, and after a long and stressful day you’ve had enough. So you hit the drive thru and tell yourself you’ll cook something tomorrow. This scenario probably sounds all too familiar. We are all extremely busy, and takeout is so tempting when you already have so much on your plate.

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:
