My sweet little 2 year old spent the night away from home last night for the very first time! YAY! This morning we took off for Publix – I took DH with me for his first real foray into couponing. He’s seen the receipts, but never actually went with me.
I went in expecting to spend around $25 and getting good deals – plus todays penny item. I forgot my penny Q at home though – oh the HORROR so I didn’t get to get it, but I did save $116.88!!!! Yes, I spent over my $25 thoughts, but some unexpected things were thrown in. They had diapers on clearance, and if I an possibly buy diapers on the cheap with coupons, I’m hoping to stay away from FULL time cloth. I do have some cloth diapers, but DH is very adamant that I not do them full time, so to keep harmony in the home……I do my best.
Shelf Price: $180.28
Total out of pocket: $63.40
Store Savings (including store coupons): $73.76
Here’s a quick rundown:
2 Huggies size 1 packs – $6.50 per pack after q’s ( $.10/diaper)
publix brand size 1 – $6 on clearance, no q’s ($.07/diaper)
pampers cruisers 2 packs, $$7.99 per pack after clearance ($.11/diaper)
6 pkgs of Lenders bagels – $.245 per pkg after q’s
2 pkgs batteries – $3.99/2 clearance, had 2 $1 q’s
2 Lawry’s marinades – bogo, had $1/1 q’s, $.39 each
Franks – .99 x 3, had 3 $1 coupons
gallon of milk – $3.59
Tabasco – $.49 after q x 2
5 revlon tools – the 3 clippers were $1.49, with overage of $2 q’s I also got toenail clippers and tweezers free
2 Campbells soups: $1.29 for both
Mt. Olive pickle relish – $.19 for both
Popcorn – $.50 for 8 bags
6 Glade refill pkgs – these were the VALUE size and BOGO, I had BOGO coupons! I thought they’d all be free but the way Publix does bogo stuff, I still ended up paying for these, so they will go back. I don’t need to pay $8.25 for them. 😉
She also missed a $2 coupon, which isn’t the END of the world, I have another, so I will get that back when I go back. So scratch the savings/spendings thing – I will get $10 back on this order.
