This post is about a week late but bare with me because my blog was basically down all last week. I finally made the big plunge and transferred from Blogger to Self-hosted WordPress.
Last week I went to Publix & Food Lion and got some GREAT DEALS. Yes I only saved 53% but my goal in any shopping trip is to save 50% so I made that goal!
Let me start with Food Lion because I only got one item. Food Lion was having a Big Deal sale. When you bought 10 of certain items you got $5 off your order. One of the items they had on sale was brawny paper towels 1 roll on sale for 10/$10 (so $1 a piece). I had $0.50 off coupons. I only have 4 coupons (that is how many papers I get) and by the time I found out about the sale thanks to Cilla’s Deals I didn’t have time to order/find 6 more coupons. However I still got a good deal. Here is the deal broken down:
10 Rolls of paper towels $10
4 $0.50 off Man Q -$2
Big Deal Instant Deal -$5
Final Price $3
That is over 70% in savings which is really good in my book! We have a TON of paper towels right now, we’re getting pretty close to that girl that was on “that show” a few weeks ago. But trust me we have NO WHERE near the amount of paper products as her.
*Paper Product Tip: Paper products can be tricky about once every 6 weeks walgreens will have TUFF paper towels on sale for 2 for $1. I usually grab a bunch from that sale when I see it.
Everything else in my photo’s I bought at Publix. They didn’t have the quart size Hefty bags that were BOGO so I grabbed some Freezer Size and got a rain check for the quart size and hopefully they will get them in stock in the next few weeks. Here is my breakdown of my Publix purchases:
Total Spent: $104.69
Total Saved: $118.78
Percent Saved: 53%
Overall I think it was a pretty good week since I got a lot of meats for dinners and lunch to mix and match with other meals throughout the week. I also got several household items that were needed. Since this was such a good run last week I didn’t do any shopping this week.
Have you done any shopping recently? How did you do?
