After taking a few weeks off from shopping, we went a little overboard this week.  I decided to grab deals at Publix, Bi-Lo and CVS.  Bi-Lo was our big trip and for the first time in ages we had so much it took two buggies!

This was also a week where my Sunday inserts paid for themselves.  Many times I feel like I use more printable coupons than insert coupons, but this week we used a lot of coupons from the past few weeks.

Lets start with the fun trip first…

CVS was mostly a run in for Cetaphil and contact solution, two things we need.  I decided to grab a couple other freebies and big deals while we were there.  I shared all the deals we grabbed in a Facebook live earlier this week.  You can watch it above.  Here’s our shopping list.

CVS Totals:
Total Purchase Value: $70.33
Total Spent: $1.33
ECB Remaining: $3
Ibotta App back: $2

Next up was a quick trip to Publix for a few things.  We stuck to just the BOGO deals and the free Centrum Vitamins.  I may have slipped a Publix sub into the buggy too cause a girl hitting three stores needs to eat.   Here’s the shopping list of what we bought.

Publix Totals:
Total Purchase Value: $70.55
Total Spent: $28.20
Total Saved: $42.35 or 60%
Mobile Apps back: $3.25

The big trip was Bi-Lo.  I stocked up on all things beans and was very thankful for all my inserts this week.  We grabbed chili beans, baked beans, grill’n beans, refried beans… you get the idea.  We also used the Target $5 off $25 pet care coupon from this weeks Target ad and grabbed a lot of kitty litter that we a donating to the animal shelter (that’s what my 9 year old wanted for her birthday instead of presents).  I was able to get 4 big containers of it for $12.98 which is the regular price of one!

One other fun deal to mention is money maker Pace Salsa!  They are BOGO and we have 55¢ coupons that double making them 39¢ a jar.  But… these are also included in the Publix $5 off (5) store coupon.  So if you have enough coupons, grab 5 of them and you get paid 60¢ a jar after the coupons!!

Bi-Lo Totals:
Total Purchase Value: $240.90
Total Spent: $81.70
Total Saved: $159.20 or 66%
Mobile apps back: $2

My budget is really only around $50 so we are a bit over for the week, but after not shopping for the past three weeks we are fine.
