Publix Totally Rocks! 75% Savings

Yet another unbelievable trip to Publix this week.  The savings just continue to roll.  I even forgot a couple of competitor coupons at home, but I still saved 75%.  The haul was so big, I couldn't fit it into one photo.  The Lord has certainly blessed us with our daily bread this week.  

 Here are some highlights:

3 Boxes Mini Wheats (one is in the next photo)  BOGO $1.95 ea - $1 MQ = 95c each

7 x 4-packs of Yo-Plus Yogurt BOGO $1.25 ea - 50c MQ doubled = 25 c each 4-pack
7 Glad Cling Wrap 100 sq. ft.  Advantage Buy $1 each - $1 MQ (See below post) = FREE

7 Ritz Crackers BOGO $1.75 each - $1 MQ - $1 Target Q = FREE + overage

1 Box Wheat Thins (on right edge of photo)  FREE Q When you buy Ritz from Sunday's Paper

Cascade Rinse agent :  FREE item coupon from a home mailer.

8 Boxes Smart Taste Pasta:  $1.25 Advantage Buy - $1/2 MQs = 75 C per box

4 Yakisoba Noodles: 89c - 35c MQ doubled = 19c each (a great on-the-go lunch)

Tidy Cats Litter, 20 lbs:  $9.89 - $2 MQ - $4 Publix Q (any Purina pet product) from Family Style mag = $3.89, a wonderful price for 20 lbs. of premium scoopable cat litter!

8 McCormick Grill Mate Seasonings:  BOGO 99c each - 50c MQ doubled = FREE

4+ lbs. apples (in 4 approx. 1-lb bags):  Used 4 Target coupons for $1 off 1 lb. apples

Breyers Ice Cream: BOGO @ 2.50 ea - $75 MQ from Sunday's paper, = $1.75!

Publix Window Cleaner $0.01 with Penny Item Coupon

J&J First Aid Items: All Free with $3/2 MQ from blinkie machine and $2/2 from Green Advantage Buy flyer.

Reach Floss:  $1.49 - 50c MQ doubled - $1 Publix Q = FREE plus overage

Visine Eye Drops:  BOGO $3.99 each, used $3 off Qs, so 99c each.  These are really handy during allergy season!

I also used a $5 off $25 purchase from Kroger and one $5 off $25 from Rite Aid.

I hope this gives you some great ideas for your trip!

  1. Great deals! Lovin' the freebies! I need to run back for some GLAD Cling Wrap...

  2. Wow -- i am new to this but still have saved more than i spent for the past two weeks -- i used to be one of those people who spent over $200 a week on groceries! my biggest question is do you have individual mc's for all of these things? like 7 $1mf on ritz -- the coupon link would only let me print 1 mc -- target let me print as many as i want but i just haven't quite mastered the man. coupon thing.
    thanks for your help!

  3. Hi Susan, Yes, I had 7 Ritz coupons. Most internet printable coupons will allow you to print 2 (hit the back arrow a couple of times). They were also available on the website and the website. I had also had access to 2 computers.

    Funny thing is, when I went to Publix, there were tear pads on the cracker aisle for $1 off 1 Ritz!
