Publix shopping trip 9/4 Spent $77.62 & Saved $155.26 ~ 67% Savings!

Wondering how I get my Percentage Saved? I use the following equation:

Total Savings / (Total Spent + Total Savings) = % Saved

Here's what all we got:


SS - Smart Source (Sunday paper Insert), RP - Red Plum (Sunday Paper Insert), MQ - Manufacturer Coupon, IP-Internet Printable Coupon, WYB- When You Buy, NLA-No Longer Available 

*Things to remember when shopping PUBLIX (Northport, AL):

  • When and item is Bogo, you DO NOT have to buy 2, they are 1/2 price.
  • You CAN use one MQ plus one STORE coupon per item.

We will be sharing pasta, pasta sauce, bbq sauce and salad dressing from this grocery trip today! I encourage you also to share of your abundance through couponing and everything else in your life. Through couponing, God has allowed my family to share so much with others. It's an amazing feeling to be used by God to bless others. All you have to do is surrender. Let God know that you want him to use you, and He will! 

May you all have a wonderful Labor Day, despite all the rain here in the south! =)
