Publix Deals

Well, after my Publix shopping trip, I had all my groceries neatly arranged ready for a photo shoot, but my husband and son had taken our camera and camera phone on their fishing trip. So, no photos today. LOL! (I always feel silly taking photos of my groceries, but I think it's nice for the blogs.)

My favorite deals this week are the Mrs. Paul's frozen fish and the Hillshire Farms lunchmeat!

Northland Cranberry Grape dark juice, $1.99 in-store special, no Q (my husband is crazy about the dark juices!)

I bought *lots* of fresh meat, fruits, milk, and vegetables, so my total was higher than usual. I was able to use a $5 off $20 meat department purchase Food Lion competitor coupon, a $5 off $50 Kroger competitor coupon, and a $5 off $25 Rite Aid coupon. These all helped to bring my total down.

Total value of groceries: $189.23
Total spent before tax: $55.99
Total savings: $133.23 or 70%


  1. Not bad at all! My favorite Publix informed me that they were now going to limit the Target coupons to 1 per transaction like they say. Bummer. Oh well. I still heart Publix.

  2. Wow! You are amazing! I haven't found out yet if my Publix takes Target coupons, but I did find a place to print Target coupons:
    You probably already know about it, but just in case....

  3. I have those $3 off Mrs. Paul's and can not find them any where! It's driving me nuts, cause there going to expire soon! I only found the van de kamps ones!
    anyway, you have good purchases again!, I wished I had a store that doubled coupons!

  4. Hi Kristin,
    My Target and my Publix have not limited me to one coupon per transaction, thankfully, but if they do, I will just split my order into multiple transactions.

    Hi Sherryl,
    Yes, you can print target coupons from the target webstie, but they do not show all the unexpired coupons, so I usually print from Hot Coupon World Target coupon generator or the one at A Full Cup.

    Hello ~Mo~,
    I hope you find the Mrs. Pauls Qs. I printed them from SmartSource in August, if that helps you. Bummer that they are no longer available.

    Good shopping!

  5. after I read it, I meant to say that I can't find the product Mrs pauls anywhere.

  6. Hi Margery,
    I contacted Mrs Pauls, and they said they don't sale in my area, so if you would like the (2) 3.00 coupons that I have, you can email me with your snail mail, and I get them out to you. They expire next week. I would just hate for them to go to waste!
    let me know,
