Today I woke up and felt extra-well as I was basking in the glory of using this week’s Publix grocery weekly ad and coming away with 77.68 in savings off a total bill of $167.32. Now, I have a fairly large family and if we were to shop without using these ads or even coupons we would be looking at spending somewhere around 800 beans or smackeroos as you would call them!
Gosh, I don’t know where to start so you can see an example of how to save using this method. More and more I am starting to believe that coupons are not really necessary if you want to save a substantial amount of money while grocery shopping.
If you have one, take out your Publix grocery weekly ad and I am certain you will be inspired as you read along with me. If you do not have one in paper form you can visit the official Publix web site and grab yours there and all you have to do is open a separate window next to this article.
The first Publix weekly special for buy one get one free offers that I grabbed was the Chef Boyardee assorted canned pastas. These are essential in my household as my kids not only love them, but it frees me up every now and then when I do not want to cook anything. Hey, I get tired just like anybody else. My total savings here after I bought 16 cans, which coincidentally, will disappear in two weeks, was 8×1.29=$10.32.
Next, I followed the Publix weekly ad for more BOGO offers and found Quaker instant oatmeal so I bought 4 of those and saved another 3.49×2=$6.98.
I noticed the Dasani 24 pack bottles of water on sale for 3.99 when they are usually 2 dollars more expensive than that, so I grabbed 4 of them and saved another $4.00 there. In my household, my kids just do not like to drink out of the tap and maybe it’s a bad and costly habit because this type of water isn’t much better, but it’s what they are used to and it encourages them to drink water.
Next, the Morningstar Farms entrees were another BOGO offer gone wild (these are hard to get like this) and I snatched 8 of them for some healthy eating for the next two weeks and saved 4×3.89=$15.56.
The Kellog’s cereals were all 50% off on the weekend so I grabbed the Raisin Brand cereal and saved another $4.09.
Fresh Express Salad Blends were on sale and I bought 4 of them saving me another $8.98. The Quaker Chewy Granola bars were also BOGO free, and I save another $6.34 there as I grabbed four of them.
I could go and on but these were my main products I got for free using the Publix grocery weekly ad and then I was off to Winn-Dixie to round out my free savings after getting a few more items I normally get at the regular price. all in all, it was a great day for grocery shopping and saving.
