Publix trip… again! 86% savings for veggies and extra!

I went to Publix again after my friend Rebecca tipped me off about a GREAT coupon booklet that made for some amazing deals! This ad is good through Saturday this week, due to Holy week, so you have plenty of time to get the same deals! The booklet was inside the door, on the right side, and they had tons left!

Here’s what I got:

Birds Eye chopped spinach (50% off) $.64 (x10)
– $1/2 Publix coupon (from the booklet!) = $.14 each
Birds Eye broccoli (50% off) $.89 (x2)
– $1/2 Publix coupon (booklet) = $.39 each
Red Baron pizza (sale) $2.99
Duncan Hines cake mix BOGO $1.71 (x5)
– $.55/1 Publix coupon (BOOKLET!) (x5) = $.30 each
Kraft Shredded Mozzarella cheese (the bit of Philly kind) $1.67 (x12)
– $1/1 blinkie coupon (x12) = $.67 each
Carrots 5 lb $3.49
Celery $.99
Bananas $1.52
– $3/$6 in produce Food Lion printable coupon
John Freida Foam haircolor $11.99 (x2)
– FREE product coupon (x2)
– $2/1 Publix coupon (x2) = FREE plus $4 profit
Yoplait Delights yogurt $2
– $.50/1 coupon
– $.55/1 Publix printable coupon = $.45
12 ct plastic eggs $.99 (for Resurrection Eggs!)

Total before coupons/sales = $110.84
TOTAL AFTER COUPONS/SALES = $15.15 or 86% savings

The coupons that I had for the free product I just happened to find sitting out at a store a couple of weeks ago, so those were a very lucky find, but this is a good example of using overage. I could use those coupons anywhere to get the haircolor for free, but I used it at Publix, stacking it with the Publix coupon, to get overage. The $4 in overage paid for all of the frozen veggies (after their coupons), and most of the fresh ones!

I also made sure to get just BARELY above $6 in produce to maximize the Food Lion coupon. If you get $10 of produce with the coupon, it’s 30% savings, but if you get $6 worth and use the coupon, it’s 50% savings. If I needed more, I would have gotten more, but, as it is, I got 8.5 lbs of fruits and veggies, so I have plenty!
