Our goal here is always to get the price of our products before coupons close to $50.00. Truly, you want your products to be close to $40, so then you get to use the $10 off coupon like free money. Combine that with Money-Makers (MM) and you can buy all sorts of things for your household for free. I am going to post my particular shopping trip today (which did not go quite as planned) and refer everyone to this weeks matchup at I Heart Publix. Keep in mind that there are regional differences in store prices and newspaper inserts, so you always have to keep on your toes.
Here is a list of what I bought and the coupons I used:
4 TRESemme products - $4.49 each. I used 2 $3/2 Clear Scalp or TRESemme Publix coupon from the pink grocery flyer AND $5/2 TRESemme from the 11/17 Sunday paper. Register price is $19.16 for 4, My Cost $1.96 for 4.

At this point my Register Total was $41.86, but since I had $-2.08 in MM, I
was going to grab some meat. It didn't happen. I had my 3 girls,
they got hungry, tired and we needed to LEAVE. I grabbed bread, we
already had the Ritz, and lunch meat then headed to the register.
Order Total $.52
Grand Total with Tax $3.31, with $69.51 savings
I hope this helps some of you out. Don't forget to visit I Heart Publix or a similar
