So last week I shared my plan to not really shop until the new year (and all the new coupons that come with it).  I changed my mind though just to run out a grab a ton of baking items.  We have one more week of baking items on sale before Easter, so that means that if you stay home you are really missing out.  All of these items will keep for a long time in your pantry or freezer, so don’t worry about them going bad.

I decided to go big and get us set for a while.  We also have big plans of baking away next week and giving out treats to friends and neighbors.

I went to Publix and Bi-Lo and grabbed the best of the deals from both stores.

Publix Totals

Total Purchase Value:  $64.64
Total Spent: $29.24
Total Saved: $35.40

The big purchase here was 10 lbs of BOGO butter.  They only run this sale twice a year, so go crazy and stick it all in the freezer!  While diet guru’s may not approve, I firmly believe that butter is a gift from God.

Bi-Lo Totals

Total Purchase Value:  $58.79
Total Spent: $24.80
Total Saved: $33.99

Because Bi-Lo doubles 55¢ coupons, we grabbed everything that had a 55¢ coupon here.  The sales were almost the same between both stores, but the higher doubles made sugar 90¢ a bag and aluminum foil and parchment paper over 50% off.
