Food, Food and some more food!

Wow, I am way behind in my blogs about my grocery shopping! It seems like all I have done is go grocery shopping! I have been to Publix, Winn Dixie, CVS and Save A Lot. It feels like I have gone a millions times since my last post! I will just show a few of the them.

Publix Italian sale 2/17
On this trip I spent $37.13 and saved $95.80 or 72%. 
I didn't have the $5/30 coupon that some people got in the paper and I was short  two coupons on the hunts and one for sominex, those coupons would have saved me  another $7.40!
For the coupon match ups I went to and
My store had tons of coupon booklets and coupon flyers so be on the look out for them!
I will just list the final prices for each item after the coupons:
Sargento shredded cheese .25 cents
Broccoli slaw kit $1.00 ...this looks really good. I have never had it. I might have to go back for more!
bagged salad mix $1.85
Egg beaters .92 cents
Honest tea .50 cents
Green giant frozen veggies .50 cents
Green giant canned veggies .37 cents
Italian bread .79 cents
5 grain bread .39 cents
Buittoni fettuccine .10 cents
Sorrento Ricotta $2.00
Sorrento Mozzarella $1.50
sominex (for donation)(lost a coupon) .13 money maker
Kotex U (thank God this sale ends today! LOL) .79 cents
Dove deodorant, free
Relish .47 cents
Chicken broth $1.05
Progresso beans .42 cents, when you subtract the $5/20 PQ I ended up paying .17 cents
Hunts tomato sauce and diced tomatoes (.37 cents as part of the $5/20)

I think I will go back later in the week and get more beans as I only bought a few. What was I thinking???? When I was checking out, the cashier told me about free razors! I will have to see if I have any of those coupons. Today I had my two favorites cashiering and bagging for me. I love when that happens :) She told me that one girl came in today and saved over $200!! woo hoo
Save A Lot store:
On 2/16 I stopped in to check out a new Save A Lot store that is right by my Publix. I spent $31.21, which I think is an awesome price for all of this produce! I made one mistake, the green peppers were $1.59 each and not a pound! EEK! I over paid a few dollars for those :(

bag of apples, bag of oranges, bananas, carrots, ginger root, grapes,cilantro, 2 mangoes, 3 peppers, honeydew, 4 tomatoes, onion, 2 strawberries, gallon of milk (not pictured), saltines, 2 veinna sausage, 2 canned mushrooms, croutons, country sausage gravy

On 2/14 I spent $4.50 at CVS and saved $30.63 or 87%

I didn't realize that the colgate had a limit of two until I got home and looked at my receipt, so I went back and got another one the next day. Notice the bonus pack with a free toothbrush! Free toothbrush, toothpaste and floss! My dentist will love me! The cereal was bogo and the dial was on clearance 50% off.
For CVS coupon match ups I use Simply
My Winn Dixie trip 2/05 and 2/07
I didn't take a picture for these two shopping trips. I stocked up on steak! I bought a lot of steak, t-bones and rib eyes. This was the week that their flyer had a $5/$30 coupon. I got $129 worth of steak for $55.77! This didn't even put me over on my food budget because I was able to take the money from my hubbys butchering money since he hasn't gotten any wild hogs this year! I picked up a few other things but I won't go into detail since the sale is over.
