Bilo Trip 2/6/11

Usually Bilo is reserved for those quick trips, or milk (love fuel perks) since it is right by my house. Not my favorite store, but I will shop there. We stopped by on our way home from Publix and grabbed a few things. I pretty much figured that they would be out of the tortilla shells, and salsa, so I got a few rainchecks and will patiently wait for Tuesdays truck.

2 x Deerpark Water 24 pack, BOGO $5.99 ($2.99 each)
– 2 x $1.00 printable
Pay $1.99 each

2 x Casa Fiesta Green Chilli 4oz, BOGO $1 (40.50 each)
– 2 x $0.25 (doubles to $0.500 Printable
Cost: Free

Red Kidney Beans $1.29 (for Chili Dip)
Not on sale, and no coupon, but sometimes you buy what you need (or should that be want? lol)

Total Spent $5.27 ($5.35 with tax)

Total saved $10

Not too bad of a deal, though I am sure that using the bpa free water bottle for my husband for work lunch would be more earth friendly and cheaper. I love having bottle water on hand for the summer season, and for traveling (which I hope is coming up soon!). I freeze the bottles, and place them in a small purse sized cooler I have and is great so I dont have to stop and pay $1.50 a bottle on the road!

Publix Trip 2/4/11

I normally shop on Wednesdays, when the sales start. But for some reason, I just couldnt bring my self to go to the grocery store when it was 74 degrees out again! So instead, we went for a bike ride, and Josh met some new friends. Friday rolls around, and its cold and raining. Perfect time to either sleep, or shop.

Usually Publix is pretty good about ringing up the orders. But for some reason, today, my total came to $30 uugh! I usually plan my shopping trips, so that I know exactly what I am purchasing and estimated total, but I think the rain just made me not want to do much of anything. Josh was being especially good today, so instead of making him continue to sit in the cart, I paid it and headed to the car to look over the receipt. Well, good thing I did, because I was over charged $29!!! Thankfully, they fixed it, after realizing that they charged twice for all of the mac and cheese, and gave me a refund. So, after that was corrected, my oop for today’s trip was $3.13. And thats more like what I normally spend.

So here is what was in my shopping cart:

Publix Shopping Trip 2.6.11

Publix Trip 1/26

I like to multi-task. I dont like clipping coupons. And my family loves Netflix. Im not a big tv fan, but I do like to watch movies. So, while me, my hubby and little guy watch a flix on tuesdays nights, I grab my computer and print print print and clip clip clip. It takes longer this way, especially when we are watching an interesting movie. But, I feel less like I have wasted time.  But isnt watching movies sort of wasting time? Oh. yeah.

But saving money doesnt waste time! Which is why I Love Publix! I have worked out a shopping list for the start of the new ad tomorrow.  I think getting these things for cheap is worth an hour or so watching a movie! Here is what I am planning on getting. Hopefully everything will be in stock!

—We didnt shop till after lunch, so that may have contributed to somethings I originally planned on purchasing being out of stock, and since it was after lunch we were in a bit of a hurry. Which is why I didn’t have time to take pics either. Wednesdays are busy days! But I think I still got a good deal, and got some some staples to donate to our church’s food pantry.

Publix Trip 1/12/2011

This week, so far, has been a pretty good week. My out of pocket purchase was $2.33, which would have been zero, but we saw a dino book that little J loved, and since we are studying dinosaurs next week in school, I thought it would be a nice treat for him.

I didnt take a photo, just because we have been so busy, and little J doesnt seem to like cameras lately.

Here is what we got:

1 Jolly Popcorn $1 each

4 Jimmy Dean Chicken Buscuits $2.99 each

2 Coffee Mate liquid creamer $1.24 each

1 Lenders Bagels $1.09

1 Gallon of Milk $3.49

2 Welch 64 oz Juice #1.62 each

4 Sundown Naturals Vitamins (A and B-complex) $3.99 each Read more of this post
