My Grocery Store Savings

I shopped on Monday this week, and I sure am glad that this has been a short school week. I had so many groceries that I could not fit any more on it, and after my groceries were bagged I needed two carts.

The Grocery Shopping Lingo:
BOGO: Buy One Get One Free
MF: Manufacturer’s coupons
PC: Public Store Coupons
TC: Target Store Coupons (Competitor coupon)

Grocery Shopping at Publix


Free Del Monte Pineapples
Items on Sale at Publix

Items bought at full price

Ham, Perdue Chicken Breast and Turkey


Items bought at a GREAT price or FREE!


While I actually have photos of everything I bought, I misplaced my receipt during my Thanksgiving cleaning, but the total and the savings is one that I will not forget.

I used the following big coupons.

– 3 x $5 Public coupons
– 1 x $5 Winn Dixie competitor coupon
– $24 Del Monte gift certitifate

Total out of pocket $87
Total saved $171

Target


MP rolls $1.50
4 x MP eggs on sale at $0.99= $3.96 – (2 x $0.50 MF) = $2.96
MP mustard $0.92
MP oats $1.32
3 lb Ground chuck $6.96


Total spent $13.70

Total saved $4.63

Thank you to I Heart Publix and Totally Target for helping me with my grocery savings.
