HOT PUBLIX SHOPPING TRIP.. FRUGAL FLORIDIANS STYLE

I was SOO excited to get to go out and shop today! I haven’t done much of anything but studying over the last two weeks and it was nice to go get some much needed things!! My plan of attack was at Publix.. they didn’t have an awesome ad but I had quite a few free items and a Winn-Dixie coupon that I knew they would accept..

Transaction #1

(10) 20oz Cokes @ 1.59 (Used (10) 99 cent OFF coupons – from Coke AMA party we hosted a few months ago)

Kashi Go Lean Crisp cereal @ 2.50 (Used $3 off coupon (and cashier let it go) – coupon from Vocal point sample box)

One Beyond dry dog food @ 7.99 (FREE coupon – coupon from past Facebook offer)

Planters Bagged almonds @ 2.99 (FREE coupon – from past Facebook offer)

Ceaser bagged do treats @ $3 (FREE coupon – won from online instant game NOW OVER)

Yoplait yogurt @ 2.00 (FREE coupon – received from Myblogspark.com)

Publix brand bacon @ 4.59 ($1 OFF meat item – received from Publix by mail through baby club)

3 Pillsbury toaster strudels @ 2.39 (3 FREE coupons – won online from instant win game NOW OVER)

3 packs of Publix brand gravy @ 0.79 each

2 Dove chocolate bars @ 0.89 (2 FREE coupons – won online via Dove twitter contest)

(2) Friendship cottage cheese @ 2.00 each (2 $1 OFF coupons – from instore coupon machine)

(2) Old wise Beef stick @ 0.50 each – shopping snack.. no coupon :)

BEGINNING TOTAL BEFORE COUPONS 61.47

The FIRST coupons I handed to here were a Publix “$5 off $30″ from last Wednesday’s paper and a Winn-Dixie “$5 off $55″ coupon that Publix matches!! You want to hand those type of coupons FIRST before you lower your total under the required amount to use ($55).

TOTAL AFTER COUPONS: $6.19    Not BAD!

Then.. JUST as I was walking out I passed a setup with this flyer hanging:

These coupons (top + bottom ones) matched quite nicely with the BOGO green giant vegetable sale going on… so back in the line I went!!

Transaction #2

20 cans of various green giant vegetables 1.29 each + BOGO sale

BEGINNING TOTAL BEFORE COUPONS: 12.90 (BOGO price automatically applied)

I used the “$5 off 20 products purchase” + 5 “$1 off 4 cans of green giant vegetable” coupons

TOTAL AFTER COUPONS: 2.90  WOW!

Oh man.. it was great.. I may even go back and get some more vegetables for family and maybe to even donate to a shelter.. can you imagine that instead of a $20 donation I could drop off 200 cans of vegetables!! Anyone else get anygreat deals?? Let me know!
