Publix, Publix, Publix, Publix, Publix!!!!

I think I ran into Publix about 6 times this week.  Doesn't that sound ridiculous?  There were so many freebies and money-makers though, lots with Limit 2, that I just had to do it.  Luckily, the Publix I normally shop at is literally blocks away from my oldest's school, so it's really not a big deal to do a quick run in.  I'm only going to list 2 of those trips here, but I wanted everyone to see how I can stick to my $40/week for a family of 5.  Keep in mind that I was extremely lucky to have a lot of fresh veg already in the fridge for the week so all I really needed to buy was milk, cheese, etc.  Most of the items I bought this week were to stock up.

Trip 1:  The New Best Meals Coupons came this morning and I saw 2 MM I had to get!

2 Red Baron Pizza - Sales Price $5.99 BOGO.  My Price $4.99.  Used $1/2 Red Baron.

2 16-ct Lipton Tea - Sales Price $1.29 each, My Price $1.02 MM!  Used 2 $1/1 Lipton Tea Publix coupon from Best Meals AND 2 $.40/1 Lipton.

2 Nature Made Vitamin D - Sales Price $3.99 each.  My Price $1.02 MM!  Used $5/2 Nature Made Publix coupon AND 2 of the $2/1 Nature Made vitamin D.

2 Halls Cough Drops - Sales Price $1.45 BOGO.  My Price $.45, BUT received $1 in my Checkout51 account.  Used $1/2 Halls Blinkie.

2 Knorr Homestyle Stock - Sales Price 2/$3.99.  My Price $.51 MM!  Used 2 $1.25 Knorr Homestyle stock Publix Best Meals coupon AND 2 $.50/1 Knorr Homestyle Stock coupons.

My total at the register was $3.89, actually $5.51 after tax, saving $29.50.  As usual, I am happy because I paid less than what I would have for just the pizza alone.

Trip 2:  This trip on 2/5 ended up larger than expected...
