Publix: Best Grocery Trip EVER! $6.20 for ALL THIS!



Spent: $6.20
Saved: $43.84
Total Value: $50.04
Percent Saved: 88%

Holy cow I didn't expect to come out this well today. I was even planning to skip Publix and Winn-Dixie this week and just do Aldi because I thought there wasn't much in the ad for me. Boy I was wrong! Though I've walked out of the grocery store twice before without paying except tax (here and here), this was by far the best trip I've had given the amount of products purchased. Given my mostly low-carb diet, I usually only have small transactions at the drug stores. Eight of the items were completely free! Publix had their gas promotion this week, this time requiring a $50 purchase. I took a pass on that and used the $5/$30 Breakfast Sale coupon instead. I had to buy plum tomatoes to get the total over $30. I got it to $30.17 before coupons. Here are the details:

Winn-Dixie had a 3-day sale that started today and ends tonight on top of their weekly sales cycle. The only thing that lit my eyes was the $1.99 butter! That's as low as butter will go. I was actually in bed when I realized that I needed to Winn-Dixie to pick up stuff. So, I got up!
