Publix Trip 7/15

 I spent $11.46 for $72.99 worth of groceries, saving $61.53 or 84%

 Click here for my original shopping list.

I added:
(1)Stonyfield YoBaby 2/$5
    -$1/1 Publix Baby Club Coupon
    -50¢/1 Manufacturer's Coupon from their website HERE
(2) Eckrich Sausage 2/$4
    -$1/2 Publix Q from newspaper (can't remember which week...)
(6) Hershey Syrup BOGO $2.19
    (2) B2G1 Tearpads
I deleted:
Pedigree because I know I have seen them put it on sale for $10.99 and we still have food left to make it another month (and if not it is regularly $12.49 at SuperTarget).
Cheerios because I did the math and realized it would be a better deal to save my peelies for a BOGO sale.

Price Changes:
Olive Oil was BOGO $6.65 not $6.99
Milk was $3.35 not $3.39 (I know pennies, but in my world every penny counts)
Chips Ahoy were BOGO $3.69 not $3.25 (thankfully they were both free for me!)
And the price for the Digiorno Deep Dish was $2.50

My favorite cashier had a back-up in her line, so they asked me to go to another line. That cashier was ok, but she asked the manager about every free item coupon I had. She also muttered something about using 2 of the B2G1 tearpads because I was already getting them free with the BOGO, but that she would "let me do it" because there wasn't a manager around at that minute to ask one. It took much longer than normal to check out because of this (I should add, had they left me in my original line I would have been done sooner), but what I learned is they are indeed very worried about coupon fraud right now.

How did you do?

  1. I had a terrible experience with them on Thursday morning and wrote to them about it.. They called me back yesterday and explained that as well. I still do not know how someone can be fraudulent with coupons? I heard that same comment at Target a couple weeks back how some people were taking advantage of coupons.

    Good job on your scores!!!
