We did a little bit of shopping this week, but honestly there wasn’t a lot we needed. There were some great deals in the Publix ad but we are pretty stocked up so it was a small trip. I actually only expected our Publix trip on 5-16 to cost a little over a dollar but Tommy spotted the beef jerky sale and peelies. We all know how spendy that jerky can be! With the sale and the peelies it was an awesome deal for jerky at $2.99 each. Although it’s definitely not a necessity for most, Tommy had me believing that purchasing the jerky was a matter of life and death. (I have to admit I love beef jerky but it’s easier to blame the higher than expected bill on his unplanned purchase!) So in the buggy they went. This is one of those rare times that we strayed from the pre planned shopping list spreadsheet! (check it out if you want)
Other than our Publix trip, we also made a couple small trips to the drug stores that were noteworthy. We saved 98% at CVS and made a small profit at Walgreens where we picked up a few things for the donation box. We’ve linked those trips up in the link up below.
We would love it if you would leave us a comment or question in the comments section below. Also if you have not become a “Fan” of The Couponing Couple on Facebook make sure you do and you can keep up with all the great things we have going!
Here’s what we got in our Publix trip on 5-16
$49.55 worth of groceries for $13.08!!
That’s 73% savings ! (even with the beef jerky!)
