Publix Trip 7/15

I had a great trip at Publix today. This was my first big trip since I've started "extreme couponing." Yes, I've been doing the BOGOs + coupons for cereal for a long time. But some of these items I've always bought at Sam's Club assuming they had the best price.

I got everything shown, plus 4 boxes of Eggo frozen pancakes that aren't shown, for $51.67! The total value of everything was $175.76!! I had $50.25 savings in coupons alone. Combine that with the BOGOs and sale prices, I saved 71% today!

The 10 packs of razors were an overage item. I made $.51 for every 2 packs bought. I explained that deal here. The 4 boxes of Wheaties, I paid $1.15 each. The FiberPlus was $.62 each, you can find that deal here. The Hershey's syrup ended up at $.75 each, again beating out Sam's price. The Emerald nuts were a freebie - $1 each with $1/1 coupon! The Finish dishwasher tabs were my other great bargain. $6.99 BOGO and two $2.50/2 coupons made them $1 each! That blows Sam's price out of the water. The popcorn was $2.20 each and that should last us awhile. I got a few other things just because we needed them. I branched out on the butter and got a different brand because it was BOGO.

Overall, I'm very pleased with my savings today. I would never have paid full price for most of the items I got. And it is all stuff we already eat, will eat, or already use. Since I now have an abundance of razors, I plan on donating some of them. I'm excited about being able to do that!
