Publix trip 06/13

I planned out my trip so that I could take advantage of the new Conagra rebate available in stores (just ask at the customer service counter for a booklet!). In order to qualify for the rebate, you need to buy $25 in Conagra products and at least $50 total (before coupons) in one trip. It took some planning, but I came up with a plan, and, after a couple of last-minute changes, it worked great! Sorry for the lack of a picture, but my camera batteries died this weekend with all the stuff going on.

Here’s what I got:

12 jars of Peter Pan peanut butter (TONS still on the shelf!)
6 bottles of Hunt’s ketchup (again, TONS still left)
3 boxes of Orville Redenbacher popcorn
2 boxes of Combat ant killer
4 Johnson and Johnson first aid travel kits
18 count eggs
2 bottles V8 Splash
5 lbs of carrots
2.5 lbs of grapes
2 lbs of bananas
3 birthday cards

My total before coupons/sales was $86.72
Total after coupons/sales = $18.25 PLUS I’m getting a $20 gift card back, so it was all FREE plus profit or 102% savings!!!!!

I’m keeping track of my out-of-pocket expenses (my goal is to spend no more than $25 a week), and this trip, though it was all ‘free’ did cost me $12 out of pocket after using the rest of the Publix gift card that I got for transferring a prescription!

So, I have two victories to make note of, one is getting all that stuff for FREE, and the other is staying well within my $25 goal for the week so far!

TOTAL OUT-OF-POCKET FOR THE WEEK = $12 (out of $25 for this week + $5 left over from last week)
