Week 42 - Publix Shop #1

I mentioned Friday that I was waiting for that $10/$50 Target coupon in order to shop this week - well, this is the first of those trips.  I got up early and shopped this morning before my house was moving. It was AWESOME!  They had re-stocked the Loreal face wipes AND Bic razors so I really lucked out.  The best part about this trip (besides only paying 30 cents before tax) is that I really got a jump on the homeless.  I haven't done weekly totals in about 2 weeks because I know I'm ridiculously over, but trips like this will certainly help put me back on track.  Here we go:

10 Quaker Granola Bars - $2.34 BOGO.  I paid $1.34 for 2, or $6.70 for all 10.
I used 5 of the $1/2 Quaker Big Chewy bars from 5/4 RP insert.  These are for the homeless.

6 Lipton Tea - $1.29.  I paid $-3.06!!!!
I used 6 of the $1/1 Lipton Best Meals coupons AND 6 of the $.40/1 Lipton from 5/18 RP insert (which all doubled to $.80).  I wanted to buy the BOGO ones but my store was out!!!!  These are for the homeless.  NOTE - there is a limit of 2 like coupons on the Lipton tea that I overlooked.  I should not have bought all of these at once.

10 Kraft BBQ sauce - $1.33 BOGO.  I paid $1.65 for all 10.
I used 5 of the $1/2 Kraft BBQ sauce from 5/11 SS insert.

1 Stayfree Pads - $5.25 BOGO.  I paid $-2.63!!!!.
I used 1 free Carefree or Stayfree mailed coupon (up to $5.99).  SEE NOTE BELOW.

2 Bic Soleil Razors - $3.99 each (after Publix auto deducts $2).  I paid $.99 each or $1.98 total.
I used 2 of the $3/1 Bic Soleil from 5/4 SS insert.

3 Loreal Face Wipes - $1.99 each (after Publix auto deducts $5).  I paid $-2.00!!!!
I used 1 $3/1 Loreal Paris Kroger mailer coupon (MQ) AND the $5/2 Loreal Skincare from 4/13 RP insert.

6 Dole Pineapple - 3/$4.  I paid $.25 each or $1.50 total.
I used 3 of the $.50/2 Dole from 4/6 SS insert (which all doubled to $1).  These are for the homeless.

2 Hormel Pepperoni - $1.59 each.  I paid $1.18 for both.
I used $1/2 Hormel pepperoni from 5/11 SS insert AND $1/2 Hormel Target printable.

I also used the $10/$50 Target grocery coupon that deducted $5 off my total.

My total was .30, or $3.94 after tax, saving $92.05.

NOTE - it wasn't until I was typing this up that I realized that the Stayfree rang up as BOGO at $2.63 and the cashier deducted the full $5.25, making those pads a $2.63 MM.  Craziness!!!!


  1. The coupon is for food and drinks only ,not paper goods. No alcohol or pet food either!

    1. I agree, which is why I was armed with the $5/$50 Star coupon that I typically use as my competitor coupon. I brought it to the cashiers attention, who then asked the manager. They decided to take it since they were adjusting it down to $5 anyway.
