Publix Weekly Ad For This Week Alert: One of My Best Shopping Trips Yet

You probably already know how the Publix weekly ad and I already connect in a big way. This past week was no exception as I accessed my trusted weekly ad and started to work on getting the best deals possible. I did do something different this time around; I involved my mother who was wanting to see exactly how I select each item and assemble my shopping list using my weekly ads plan and the grocery ads.

How Did I Fare With the Publix Weekly Ads This Week?

The Publix ads for this week looked phenomenal as I opened up the flyer on the Internet as well as the physical flyer right next to me, something I have also done differently this time around. Funny how the physical Publix weekly at my store was exactly the same as the one on the Internet. This enabled my mother to follow along easily as I picked each item while assembling my shopping list.

As usual, I started with the buy one get one free offers and started with the Tostitos tortilla chips; I grabbed four bags of these, saving $10 in the process. I moved on to the item right next to it which was the Red Baron pizza and I saved $13 buying 4 of these, too. Now, those pizzas are not exactly the most healthy option for my kids but they absolutely love this treat; so I figured I would give it to them over a four-week period to satisfy their longing for pizza. Compare this to ordering out 4 times to Domino’s or Papa John’s and I am sure you can see how much money you can save by getting BOGO offers for pizza!

So far, I had saved about $23 on the first page of the public weekly ad alone! I bought the Oscar Mayer classic beef franks and got myself four packs for the weekend barbecue we were going to have. I got two originals and 1 of the 98% fat free packages, as well as a light package for those who wanted to stay a little more healthy. I am always concerned with the salt content when it comes to frankfurters or so-called hotdogs but every now and then is okay as long as we don’t overdo it.

The Savings Quickly Start Mounting With the Publix Flyer

I was already up to a $35 in savings beThe Publix weekly ad is something you can count on for spectacular savings week after week.fore I turned the page a few more times. I was able to get the Fresh Express salad blends for BOGO offers and saved another 8 dollars. At that point I was thinking; finally, a healthy product! I continued trying to pick out healthy items and settled for a Flat-Out bread offer and got four of these to save another $6.50.

As you can see, at this point I was up to $49.50 in savings. I continued for five more pages and was able to get my paws on more useful products for myself and my family and saved another $37 on top of what I had already tallied up.

The total savings with the Publix ads for this week amounted to $86.50. By the time I finished rounding out all the other items on my list, some of them which were not on sale at all, I still only spent $141.58 and came away with an incredible amount of savings.

The end result for my family is that we can eat for a good two weeks on that $141.58 amount. Now, if you take into account how the average family, according to many sources, spends an average of $600-$800 a month on groceries, I would say this is a pretty stupendous amount of savings, don’t you agree?

Using a Publix Weekly Ad Equals Saving Money on Food for Dinner Time

Now that you are hopefully in the habit of using your Publix weekly ad, if you take inventory on how many times a week you eat out you may be surprised. Saving money on food becomes a lot easier when you can become a little more realistic with your budget as it applies to being able to afford eating a restaurant on a regular basis. Personally, I can’t “eat out” more than once every two weeks and would much rather just whip up something quick at home.

Easy Ways to Save Money at a Publix Grocery

Luckily, there are many easy ways to save money now that you really want to do it! One of the first things you want to do is to cut back on those expensive runs to Wendy’s, Mcdonalds, and Burger King! Studies show that families are so busy these days that they have no choice but to eat on the run because there is no time to cook a decent meal. Your challenge is to get away from this trap, and, although it is not easy, it can surely be done.

One of the many ways to save money on groceries is to plan your meals ahead. You would be surprised at how easy this can be once you get the hang of it. For example, I will bet if you can sit down and consciously write down a two week meal plan for yourself and/or your family, you can easily do it. After you make a list of the things you like to eat for dinner it becomes a little bit of a challenge to list all the necessary items and ingredients to make it happen. Folks, all it takes is a little planning.

How Saving Money Can Be Easier With a Publix Sales Ad

One of the best tips to saving money is to use your Publix weekly ad and build a grocery list around the buy one get one free offers, and to start building a two-week dinner plan around the awesome savings you can get. Aside from that, if you pick a few days out of those 14 days to eat really cheap stuff such as pasta with Parmesan cheese or rice and beans, you can almost cut your dinner expenses in half!

If you don’t really know how to cook it may be time to start researching the how to videos littered all over the Internet to get you going. It really is easy and I find that even if people don’t like cooking, it’s usually because that cooking has been done for them by someone else all their life so it intimidates them. If this is you and you need to save money, you need to at least try. Worst case scenario, you can resort to Healthy Choice frozen dinners but this is not exactly a long-term healthy option.
