Stocked up!

The two pictures above are the same thing just a different angle. I wanted to share my recent Publix run. I was in Madison for my dad's birthday and me and my sister-in-law, Shannon, (the coupon lady as she was referred to in Publix) and my niece, Alexis, ran after the party and picked up a few things.
Ready for my total?? For all the stuff pictured, I spent $48 and saved $118!!!! Can you believe that? I am still new enough to this that I get super excited. You probably can't tell what all I got but it does consist of 2 bottles of Fantastic, 3 boxes of spaghetti noodles, 2 vegetable oils, 2 boxes of Ritz ($1.09 total), 2 boxes of mac and cheese, 4 bags of frozen veges, 4 things of cookie dough, 3 boxes of popcorn, 2 things of margarine, 2 things of spray butter, 16 things of crescent rolls or bread, 2 things of cream cheese, 8 boxes of muffin mix (.20 each), 2 bags of muffin mix, a bottle of dressing (.57), 2 boxes of chex cereal, a box of Gas-X (they paid me $1.50 to take it) and 2 bottles of vitamins that they paid me $3 to take.
Shout out to my amazing teacher, Shannon, because I couldn't do it without her. She is on a first name basis with all the workers and even warns them when she things they will run out of stuff because of it being such a good deal. She is also awesome about donating stuff to the 8th street church in Madison or Huntsville one. I am giving her my Gas-X and vitamins to take there. She gave me 2 coupons last night in exchange for a bottle of Lysol that I wasn't going to use. It's amazing the things that make you excited after you have kids! It is so fun to go get so much stuff and not spend a lot for it. I have had to reorganize the pantry several times but I think I found a place for everything. I also went to Target this past week and got Del-Monte vegetables on sale for .45 each. That is cheaper than Sam's just so you know. I bought 3 cases!!! They also have their Campbell's cream of mushroom and chicken and Swanson chicken broth on sale for .50. That is dirt cheap!
We are supposed to be getting 2 Publix in Florence so hopefully that will happen sooner than later and I'll host another coupon class-probably at church-and let Shannon come teach us again how to save in our own town!!! Oh and just so you know, my total last night started well over $100 and I know I had at least $60 in coupons!! It was so fun to see the total drop! Yeah for cheap groceries!!


  • Well, you know this post made me very happy. I'd almost like to go back and get more of the deals. Although, my total was 23.00 and I saved 36.00.. Not as good as you. I was overcharged for cereal. It was BOGO but didn't ring up that way so I paid 6.00 too much! Ugh! Chad would let me to back inside. He said that was too embarassing. I'm leaving him at home next time! Good job with the trip!
