October 4 Publix Shopping Trip: $134 Worth in Groceries for $17 OOP!! With Link Ups!

All for $17 bucks!

*Help us reach our goal this week for 100 likes on our new Facebook page!! We are rockin' and rollin' and getting some great deals out to you as we find them here in the Sunshine state! Thank you for your support!

I already miss some of the deals from last week! I was so happy about all the fresh fruit and juice deals that it made this week appear super unhealthy (brownies and Snickers are just too good to resist). I do have to remind myself and point out to you that saving money on a lot of these grocery store purchases does help to give more room in your grocery budget for fresh produce. So if you're using coupons, you are hopefully seeing that boost in your produce not matter what the sales look like!

My favorites this week were the free Lindt chocolate bar (I only snagged ONE, but it made me so happy that it was free) and the BOGO on the Snapware. I got some cereal containers and bigger containers to keep my salad and cut up fruit in. Snapware is BPA free so you don't have to worry about that toxic garbage mixing into your food.

If you haven't been to our Facebook page, definitely check it out! Give me a "thumbs up" while you're there (I call it the virtual "pat on the back - great job, keep it up!" type of thing). I like to post great deals I find, making sure you will never miss a money-saving moment. You can also subscribe and get my posts sent to you by entering your email under "Follow Me" to the right!

Couponing Tip: Technology is fantastic - expecially when it helps us earn money - if you haven't downloaded the free app for iPhone or Android called Ibotta - you definitely need to get it! Not sure what that is? I've written a post about how it works and how you save and earn cash back on your purchases (my favorite thus far was on the gallon of milk, any - I hope everyone took advantage of that offer!!)

  1. I really appreciate your Publix shopping posts! I've just recently started shopping there since I moved to Florida. It's good to see what deals other shoppers are getting. I found you through KCL! :) I have 2 questions: 1)Where do you get the $5/$30 Winn-Dixie coupons? 2)How do you get the Ibotta widget for your blog? TIA!

  2. I'm glad you find the weekly shopping posts helpful! They are exciting and fun to do each week - so I'm happy to share! To answer your questions: 1) I purchased the Winn Dixie coupons on Ebay before they changed their rules and regulations ($15 bucks for 40 of them...or something like that). They are originally from the "Enjoy the City" booklets that come out for your local city. You may want to check coupon clipping websites to see if they sell the Winn Dixie (that is what I plan to do when I use up all mine). 2) I made the widget with an image and hyperlink :) Have a great weekend!
