Publix Savings

So how much do I love coupons? The regular price of the groceries you see in this picture was $96.65 but after coupons and advertised sales my total was only $54.96 - a savings of $41.69!!

One of the highlights was being able to use my $2.00 off of Vaseline Lotion that printed on the bottom of a CVS receipt. I scored a bottle of Vaseline Cocoa Butter lotion that normally retails for $8.00 for $1.50 because it was also on sale at Publix this week. I also got some Head & Shoulders shampoo on clearance for $2.00!

Another key to my savings success is reading http://www.fiddledeedeeblog.blogspot.com/ weekly Publix post with coupon matchups. Every Thursday she posts the latest and greatest Publix sale with printable and non-printable coupon matchups.

Also, you can check out my post here on keeping those coupons organized.

WOW! It looks like you have this down to a science. I have a child with Celiac Disease that is on a speacial diet so I find it hard to save at the grocery store. Any suggestions.

Dear beverlybygrace,

I'm not very familiar with celiac disease, but from what I know, people who have this cannot eat anything with gluten in it. If you have a Whole Foods in your area, they typically run specials on gluten free foods. They also have all of their gluten free foods clearly marked. Let me know how it goes...in the meantime, I will pray for your child.

I never even thought about using the CVS coupons at Publix, what a great idea! Thanks!
