Publix Trip 9/18

Publix Trip Pic 9-18-15

I went on a Publix Trip today! It’s been a few weeks since they had a lot I wanted from one ad. I plan on freezing my taco shells. Just put parchment paper in between the shells and freeze. They come out perfectly when they’re thawed. I may even go get a couple more packages! Beans & Olives and I don’t mix, but this is a perfect example of picking something up free to either donate or give away, to either make money or bring your total up to a certain amount.

The olives were a big ole money maker and I’ll give them to my Father. I know they’ll be on sale tomorrow for $3.59 each, but I decided not to risk the offers being gone tomorrow. The beans were BOGO, which I’ll donate to this year’s Thanksgiving drive. Combined with BOGO coupons, they came out free. I needed something to bring my totals up to $30 to use my Fresh Market coupons and those were perfect for that!

I went to two different Publix stores because of manufacturer coupon limits mainly. Also I wanted to use 2 of my $5/$30 coupons to maximize my savings. Since Publix only accepts one per day, there you go! All together I got $101 worth of groceries for $4.53, but they’ll be completely Free + $13.47 in overage once my cash back hits my account. In fact, I heard the cash register cha-ching on my phone a little bit ago so I’m pretty sure it’s already there. That’s 113% in savings! Below is what I got and any coupons I used:
