This has been a small shopping week for us.  The last three days we have boarded ourselves inside to try and get over a cold, however that has backfired and now everyone is sick!  Before the cold set in I did make it to Publix and CVS for two small trips.

Publix:
Total before coupons and sales: $30.09
Total Spent: $7.77
Total Saved: $22.32 or 74.1%

This was a fun trip for me.  I wanted to grab a few B1G1 items before the sale changed.  I printed the Pepperidge Farm Toast coupon.  Went and found 2 boxes of toast that had .50/1 Prego Coupons, grabbed the Prego jars.  Lastly I grabbed some fruit with the $2 off $5 Food Lion coupon.

CVS:
Total before coupons and sales: $19.98
Total Spent: .01 cent on gift card
Total Saved: 100%

Weekly Totals:
Before coupons and sales: $50.07
Spent out of pocket: $7.77
Saved: $42.30 or 84.5%

Our CVS Transaction:
I tried to follow the deal I made, but sadly there was nothing left.  I had a $10 ECB that expired that day so…

Bought: (2) Packs of CVS Diapers on sale 2 for $12.99
Used: (1)-$3 off CVS product coupon
Paid with $10 ECB and .01 cent
(for some reason in SC tax times zero always comes out that you owe a penny)

    • It was another outstanding week at Publix. :-D

    • My CVS was out of many items that I wanted, however my trip was still worth the time.

    • Hi, just a heads up–the Rite Aid flyer changed (at least for me in the paper and in the store)–I tried to get the Dove for $3.00 each and it’s not showing on that page of the flyer in the store and they were $4.79 in the store. I was still able to use my $1.50/2 coupon for the cheaper Dove Invisible Solids which were $3.49 each. Makes each one $0.74 instead. Still a good deal though!
