We hit Publix this week for what started as a trip just to buy free ranch dressing and turned into a bigger trip with a lot more groceries. It was good night overall. I posted a picture to facebook of just the bags and that caused an onslaught of folks that felt I bought unhealthy items… so… not really in the mood to bring those comments on again but here goes.
Total before sales and coupons: $143.14
Total spent: $57.81
Total saved: $84.33 or 59%
Here’s a copy of my actual shopping list if you are curious what we purchased. We also had a $5 off Publix coupon and a $6 Kroger coupon that we used. I didn’t have a lot of time to prepare to shop so I went with only printable coupons, we were ready to go in 10 minutes and done shopping and home within the hour.
If you are concerned over our health, please remember that we get a huge box of produce every week from our CSA Farm, and probably eat more vegetables at every meal than most folks… dinner last night was grilled chicken, fresh corn, squash and zucchini, peas and a dessert of fresh watermelon. We also spent this week finally getting our garden going so soon we’ll have enough squash, peas and pumpkins for 3 counties.
Now your turn to share. How did you do this week? Leave a comment or a link to your post.
