I really wasn't going to run into Publix again for the Viva Italia sale, but so many awesome printable coupons popped up for freebies I just HAD to go. Not really, but since I do pass the Publix at least twice a day it's really not that difficult! Here's how it went down:
2 GM Cinnamon Toast Crunch - BOGO $3.59. I paid $.84 for both. I used 2 of the $.50/1 Cinnamon Toast Crunch printables (which doubled to $1) AND $.75/2 General Mills cereal Target printable coupon.
2 Zatarain Rice Mix - 10/$10. They were FREE! Used 2 of the $.50/1 Zatarain printable (which doubled to $1). Use zip 01844.
4 Hunts Diced Tomato - $1.19 BOGO. I paid $1.38 for all 4. Used $1/4 Hunts Diced Tomato Publix Viva Italia hang tag.
2 Progresso Soup - $1.95 BOGO. They were a $.05 MM! Used 2 of the $1/1 Progresso soup printable. Use zip 77477.
2 Progresso Recipe Starters - 2/$3. They were FREE! Used $1/2 Progresso Recipe Starters Publix Best Meals emailed coupon AND 2 of the $.50/1 Progresso Recipe Starters printable which doubled to $1. I was super excited to see the Creamy Parmesan Basil one - more on that below....
1 Pepperidge Farm Texas Toast - $2.39 BOGO. I paid $.20. Used 1 $.50/1 Pepperidge Farm frozen rolls or bread printable (which doubled to $1).
My total was $2.87 before tax (I got back in the car and realized that one of the vendor coupons for $.50 did not multiply), saving $23.48.
******I use the Fire-Roasted Tomato Recipe Starters all the time as pizza sauce. I mean what is the point of picking up free stuff if you can't use it? BUT, I will never buy this Creamy Parmesan Basil one again! I made a super quick pasta with chicken and the Bird's Eye Broccoli Stir Fry, and used this stuff as the sauce. OMG - there is so much basil in this it is almost inedible! I had even thinned out the sauce with pasta water! At the end of the day, I made it work with lots of greek yogurt and a pad a butter, but NEVER, NEVER picking this up again!!!! I think I'm still breathing the basil taste and we had that 2 nights ago. Yuck. And I like basil!
