11/21 Publix Shopping Trip: $97 Worth in Groceries for $8!! With Shopper Link Ups!

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

Welcome (and welcome back!) to my weekly Publix shopping trip blog post! This post is where I put together some of the best weekly sales and match them with the best coupons and keep my OOP under $10 when possible. I have linked up the printable coupons in my list so you can recreate the same deals for you and your family!

Well it's starting to feel more like Thanksgiving is in our future with the new ad this week at Publix. I must admit, I was pretty excited about this week. So many BOGOs and a great week to use the Target $10/$50 coupon that came in the Target ad from this past Sunday's paper. Lots of savings this week - and lets face it- I'd rather spend less at the grocery store and save more for the upcoming expensive month of December. 

I've got a little boy who's love for Thomas the Train has now turned obsessive and has a few wooden trains on his list for santa. I don't know if you've ever seen the price on those trains but they are NOT cheap! We were blessed to get the wooden train set by another fire fighter who worked with my husband. His boys had recently outgrew Thomas right before Christmas last year. We were able to set up the entire train set in the playroom the night before Christmas (took HOURS with both my husband and I working on it, and a few adult beverages) and when he woke up Christmas morning, Santa had brought him exactly what he asked for. His excitement - I will remember forever. So, needless to say, Santa can't let this little boy down this year. Cutting grocery costs are a good place to start to allocate those dollars to gifts instead of, say, shredded cheese!

Some of you have asked me how I manage these shopping trips with two littles. I wrote a fun post on Tricks for Smooth Shopping with Toddlers for your reading pleasure. I hope you enjoy it!
