I was paid $1.72! I saved $273.05 ($82.77 sales, $190.28 coupons)
Here’s what I got at Publix last night: 18 Barilla pasta sauce $2.89 BOGO, 9 Barilla pasta $1.49, 18 Buitoni pasta $2.29 BOGO (raincheck), 6 Schick razors $9.39 BOGO (raincheck), 2 NUK pacifiers $3.29, 8 Sundown vitamins $3.59-$3.99, 6 Cocoa Puffs cereal $1.99, 12 Totinos pizzas $1.63, 6 Pillsbury cookie dough $3.29, 5 Progresso Recipe Starters $1.50, 1 Aussie hairspray $2.49, 2 Milks $3.59
Before coupons, my total was $193.31, so I was able to use 6 $5/$30 Winn Dixie coupons from the Enjoy the City books, saving $30 off the top! I used rainchecks on the Buitoni pasta which provided overage as well. I also used a raincheck to purchase the Schick razors (I love these kinds because you don’t have to use shaving cream – I have an idea to make little gift baskets for teachers this year for Christmas with the razors & covergirl items, etc. that I’ve gotten for free this year). They will appreciate it!! Check this out about the importance of rainchecks!
I did 2 of the FREE milk deals wyb 6 participating items. I purchased 6 Cocoa Puffs for my youngest who is allergic to peanuts & is always wanting my older son’s Reeses Puffs (I used $1/2 printable MQ’s). Plus I got the Progresso Recipe Starters (used $1/1 printable MQ’s – no longer available) & 1 can of Aussie hairspray (used FREE Aussie product coupon mailer). Each deal got me a free gallon of milk, plus I was able to use $1 off dairy Publix baby club coupons on each, therefore getting overage towards the other items). With just these coupons, the cost of these 2 deals would have been $9.44.
My other favorite deal, which ends today with the Yellow Flyer coupon at least is the Totino’s Pizzas & Pillsbury Cookie dough. I used the Buy 6 Totino’s Pizza get 1 FREE Pillsbury cookie dough. I did that deal 2 times. Plus I bought an additional 4 packs of cookies. I used $1/3 Totino’s Pizza publix coupons & $1/5 Totino’s MQ. I also used the $2/3 Pillsbury dough publix coupons & $1/2 Pillsbury cookie dough blinkies (found in store). With just these coupons, the total for 12 pizza & 6 cookies was $19.42.
*Please note that I have now gotten to the point in my shopping that I usually only shop the best deals that I personally see! I only needed the pasta sauce, all of the pasta is going to my friend’s church food pantry. As I explained earlier, the razors will be used in little gift bags/baskets for the holidays. Also, I am aware that all of the items I get may not be the healthiest, but in this economy, I truly believe that many people would be thankful to receive any of the items we can get cheap or free! My favorite part of couponing is helping others!*
