We ran out this week for a few things, that ended up being a lot of things.  Part of that may have been that I got to out all by myself so I took my time and went to three different stores (not my usual).

Publix

Total Value Purchased: $117.49
Total Spent: $49.98
Total Saved: $67.51 or 57.4%

This was 2 gallons of milk, apples, orange juice and a number of the BOGO deals on the Publix weekly ad list and a few of the super cheap deals from the unadvertised deals list.

Bi-Lo

Total Value: $58.10
Total Spent: $21.62
Total Saved: $36.48 or 62.7%

I racked up on clearance meats, strawberries and clearance baby items.  I love clearance deals that have coupons to go with them!

I also ran into Target and grabbed the Tide detergent deal plus a number of clearance items from the dollar spot at the front of the store.  Many items were on sale 70% off which means 30¢ deals!

Target

Total Value: $44.98
Total Spent: $25.17
Total Saved: $19.81
Got Back: $5 Target Gift Card
