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 weekly ad is something you can count on for spectacular savings week after 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 before 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?

Why a Publix Weekly Ad Beats Using Coupons Every Time

There is a simple reason why I think a Publix weekly ad beats the heck out of using just coupons on a regular basis. Just as a reminder, you can access the weekly Publix flyer from either the official website or you can get it in person next time you shop there. Up until recently I used to use coupons all the time either from manufacturers or from the actual in-store coupons at whatever supermarket I shopped at but these days I have turned to something much easier and more convenient. Using the Publix weekly ads on a regular basis as well as from Winn-Dixie, from CVS, and even Walgreens has actually change my life for the better when it comes to shopping frugally.

 I Like to Start With the Publix Sales

In the old days if I opened up a Publix weekly ad I would just look at the specials and try to match them with my coupons or add to the coupons I had at hand. Now I use the weekly flyer as a starting point and then I add whatever coupons are left over as a supplement to all the deals and discounts I find on those circulars. If you are someone who’s been using coupons as your starting point to building up your shopping list, I urge you to at least try using the weekly at first and then using whatever manufacturers coupons you can find to add to the savings for that particular shopping day.

One particular advantage that I gained from using the Publix weekly ad first, instead of whatever coupons I can find is that I can assemble a shopping list much quicker by starting out with the buy one get one free offers and continuing on from that. Before, when I wasn’t using the weekly circular as a starting point I would choose whatever coupons I thought might fit the needs of our family and I found that it wasn’t enough because I was picking items that I never really used. That’s the biggest plus when it comes to using these weekly circulars. You can easily assemble the shopping list in half the time as compared to when you used to do it with coupons and that in itself makes using a Publix weekly ad much more important than starting out with coupons.

Bear in mind that by no means am I telling you to stop using whatever coupon you can find. On the contrary. It’s important to continue using coupons as you see fit but use them as a supplement to the weekly deals and specials that you find. By shopping this way you will save so much time that can be better spent with your family and you will be able to assemble a shopping list that you can feel comfortable with knowing that you’re to be able to use those items and products by using the Publix weekly ad.
