Hubby and I just returned from our weekly Publix excursion. We did pretty well this week. We spent $25.85 and saved $63.95. So, we paid $25.85 for $89.80 worth of groceries. That gives us a savings rate of 71%.
I find it helpful to review my receipt after the trip to help make it clear in my mind what the best deals were and how we got them. We found that my best deal was the four packs of free razors I mentioned in an earlier post. A close second was the Finish dish detergent that is BOGO for $6.99. We had two $2.50/1 coupons, allowing us to purchase 2 boxes of detergent for $1.99. I would much rather pay $2 than $14!
The Bayer aspirin in the picture is on sale 3/$5. I had a $1/1 coupon and got the 30ct bottle for $.67... not too shabby.
All in all, we saved $36.76 by shopping sales and $25.50 in coupons. Those coupons can really add up, so keep clipping (and printing)!
