We decided that we really didn’t need much grocery wise this week, so I enjoyed grabbing some of the super fun freebies around town and a short grocery list at Publix.

First stop was Rite Aid for 4 packs of band-aids and Rhinocort.

Rite Aid Totals:
Total Purchase Value: $31.95
Total Spent: $17.46
Plenti Points Back: 2000 (=$20 off)

Second stop was Target.  I’m not in Target very often, while they have great deals it is very out of my way, but this week is well worth the trip.  We grabbed this Pantene deal that ends Saturday night.

Target Totals:
Total Purchase Value: $20.93
Total Spent: $9.93
Got Back: $9.93 in Target Gift Cards

Now for the actual food…
I grabbed some of the top deals in Publix while I was there looking for unadvertised deals.  Here’s my shopping list of what we got and the coupons I used.

Publix Totals:
Total Purchase Value: $49.83
Total Spent: $24.93
Total Saved: $24.90

I also have started “walking” the brand new Lowes Foods in our area, so we grabbed the cereal deal while we were there just so I could save on gas before we left!  While it wasn’t a ton of fuel savings, filling up at $1.62 a gallon is much better than it could have been.

Lowes Foods Totals
Total Purchase Value: $13.96
Total Spent: $6
Total Saved: $7.96
Got Back: 15¢ off per gallon

For the week we were right at budget on what we spent out of pocket, but having lots of rewards back makes it more fun for future deals!

Weekly Totals
Purchase Value: $116.67
Spent: $60.25
Saved: $56.42
Got Back: $20 in Plenti Points and $9.93 in Target Gift Cards
