My Publix Show & Tell: 91% Savings!

by Kimberly on May 12, 2011

I had a great time shopping at Publix today! My ‘Stockpile’ is now restocked on Kraft Homestyle Mac ‘n Cheese. The pickles will be gone in about 3 weeks and the Fuze Juice and Maruchan Yakisoba Noodles will probably be gone in a week in my house. I never seem to be able to buy enough to last an entire sale cycle…I don’t think I’ve ever bought more than 10 of an item though. I am extra careful to leave product on the shelves for the customers behind me. There’s nothing more frustrating than going to ‘get a deal’ only to find the ‘deal’ is out of stock! (I will discuss this in a post later  and how to get a large quantity of an item WITHOUT emptying the shelves at the store).

Below is a list of Exactly What I bought and what coupons I used. At the very bottom is my Total Spent and Total Saved.

**DISCLAIMER** Not all Publix allow overage (this is when the value of the coupons exceeds the actual cost of the product). You do not receive cash back when this happens, it comes off the total dollar amount of your entire purchase. Check with your Publix first to verify their policy.

Green = Store/Competitor Coupon
Red = Manufacturer Coupon
