Publix: Filling the cart with savings


This week at Publix, I bought more than I've bought in a long time.  The cart was pretty much filled up by the time I was done.  I didn't even keep track of how much product I had - I knew it would be over $50, so that I could use a $5 off $50 coupon.

I used a lot of printable coupons, such as the $1.00/2 Chex cereals printable, the $1.00 off any TWO Ziploc brand Bags printable, and the $1/1 I Can't Believe It's Not Butter printable.  But I also used lots of newspaper insert coupons, which I tend to use fewer and fewer of each week.

I haven't found the Winter Family Savings booklet yet, but the coupons are available online.  Yay!  I hope Publix does this more often, because I often have trouble finding needed coupon booklets at my local store.

Here's what I got:

4 General Mills Chex cereals @ BOGO $3.69 = $7.38
- 2 $1.00/2 Chex cereals
= $5.38 for four, or $1.35 each
