Publix Shopping Trip 8/1 $130 Worth in Groceries for $18!! 86% Savings!

We have moved to a new home! Come visit us at Capturing Inspirations at!

I had my little helpers along with me today and I must say, for 10 months and 2 1/2 years old, these too were angels in the store. They had fun in the kid car turning the wheel as I turned corners and we zoomed down aisles making grocery shopping a little more fun.

I enjoy shopping early in the morning when possible. The smell of fresh baked bread and quiet checkout lines is a perfect time to be able to focus on getting everything on my list.

My cashier was so patient with all my coupons as well as the people behind me in line. Thankfully, mornings are quieter, so I don't feel like I'm slowing down the flow too much with my coupon show. I did, however, feel a little sorry for the man who was buying a single paper. He stood behind me and I explained I had a "few" coupons and it could be a minute. He said, "Well, a lady is buying over a hundred lotto tickets at customer service, so this is my better option." "And here you are behind a girl with a hundred coupons," I said jokingly. Poor guy. Didn't look like he was in a laughing mood. We've all been there. It always happens when you're in a hurry. God's way of teaching us all patience I guess.

All in all it was a good week! 86% savings I will take it! Stocking up on laundry detergent, pasta sides, razors, and mechanical pencils this week.

How'd you do this week? I would love to hear about great deals you've found! Comment below if you would like to share! If you missed it - check out my previous blog post, Some of My Honest Favorites, reviewing Jessica Alba's new company called The Honest Company! No sketchy chemicals, all toxic free. We love it!

Hope you all have a great weekend :)


  1. Where did you find the $2 off greenwise chicken?

  2. The coupon for the chicken was a tear pad found in the store by the Publix savings flyers. It was a $2 off chicken (any) when you buy (5) Knorr pasta sides. The expiration date was 2014 so scout around, you may be able to find them!

  3. Thank you! I'll check it out tonight.

  4. do you remember where you got the tradewinds tea coupon from?

  5. The Tradewinds manufacturer coupon is from the 6/30 Red Plum insert and the Publix coupon is from a booklet found in the store called, "Smart Savings."

  6. Thank you for not counting the Ibotta into your savings - I like the way you do the breakdown as ACTUAL OOP cost! Then add at the end "plus Ibotta!" Makes much more sense to me :)

  7. Jay, I'm glad that you found that helpful! Ibotta is definitely great! I love how you can stack a store coupon, plus manufacturer AND use ibotta - sometimes makes for more money maker deals!

  8. the book ur reading( Eating for Beauty) i'll have to look into getting that book to read :)

  9. Eating for Beauty is one of my absolute favorites! I learned so much and found is so inspiring :) I'm sure you will enjoy it!
