Grocery & Drug store shopping week of 5/15

Today at Publix I spent $25.86 and saved $59.81 or 70%. That is about average savings for me. Today I bought a bunch of items that I didn't have coupons for so I guess that is a great trip! Here is what I purchased:

1 mission corn tortilla, sale $1.50, used $1.00 IP = .50 cents
I used a $5/$55 coupon from Winn Dixie!!
I found out that the store I shopped at today still takes Target coupons!!! Woohoo!! The other Publix that I shop at doesn't :(

This is what I picked up on my unexpected trip to Walgreens today. While shopping at Publix I found a $5.00 catalina in my purse that was expiring tomorrow. I was hoping to get the milk, 2 eggs and 1 tropical mix for free but it only came to $4.97 and the cashier said I had to get one more item!!! I love the tropical mix and it was on display by the register so I grabbed that. I paid a total of .97 cents, saved $5.90 or 86 %. Note...eggs are only .99 cents at my Walgreens, that is a great price!

This is what I purchased at Winn Dixie this week. I was excited to find the coupon booklets!
1 flounder and 1 perch, bogo $6.99 = $3.50 each
1 baby spinach, sale $1.99 used $1.00 mq = .99 cents
1 romaine (thought it was on sale for $1.99 but rang up as $2.99, used $1.00 mq = $1.99
2 mr clean magic erasers, $3.49 bogo, used 2 $1.50 mq = .25 cents each (cheaper ones were not on sale at my store!)
4 KC masterpiece BBQ sauce, bogo $1.99, used 4 $1.00 mq = FREE
I paid a total of $10.67, saved $25.26 or 70%

I, also, stopped at CVS and picked up 2 whisk on sale for $4.99 each, used 2 $2.00 IP and $3.00 ecb for a total of $3.68, saved 80%

If you are wondering where all the fruit and veggies are I hardly ever buy them at the store! Here in Florida there are produce markets all over and they are so much cheaper than Publix or Winn Dixie. I do buy produce at Save a Lot sometimes. I also stock up on frozen vegetables when they are super cheap. This year I am even trying to grow my own tomatoes! I stock up on steak, chicken and pork when it is on sale, usually at Sams club or Winn Dixie ,and put it in the freezer.
