Publix Ad 6/12-6/18 Shopping Total- Saved 78%!

Grocery shopping is a mandatory thing, everyone needs to eat but everyone doesn’t have to spend their whole bank account walking out of the store! Each shopping trip I will post a recap of my purchases so you can see how to save money on your grocery bill! Now for this particular trip we had certain items requested and we recently did a shop at Sam’s Club since my step-dad is a meat cutter for Publix and we save a ton of money by buying whole cuts of meat and cutting it up ourselves so we get a lot of the “perimeter” of a normal store there. However, for a normal family, meat/produce/dairy/organic coupons can be scarce if you don’t know where to look and this is where your savings come in! Say you have a $25 budget for each member of your household and a normal family of 4, that’s $100 for your trip..but you buy sales and use your coupons to what normally would have cost you $100 before buying your meat and produce is now $60..you have $40 to spend right there! The trick is to stock-up on great priced items with a shelf-life so that each week you’re buying essentials and using your coupons/savings to your advantage! Now let’s look at the numbers!

My Publix is located in Central Florida which means we do not double coupons or have penny items, and we do have “true” BOGOs (first items rings up regular price and the second one free) BUT my store does take 3 local competitor coupons (Target, Save-a-lot, Winn Dixie) which helps you “stack” and multiply your savings! Competitor coupons or Publix coupons CAN be used in conjunction with manufacturer coupons on each item including the “free” from the BOGO! I also had to take advantage of the gas card deals since I drive so much!
