Publix Weekly Trip: $86 Worth in Groceries for $19 - With Shopper Link Ups!

I hope everybody had a fun & safe Halloween! I love Halloween more now as an adult than when I was a kid! It's so much fun seeing the excitement on my son's face as he goes trick-or-treating around our neighborhood with all his friends. My daughter was just a few weeks old last year, so THIS year felt like her first Halloween. She was the cutest monkey I have ever seen. We all had a blast!

I feel like I really had to hunt down the good deals this week. Maybe it's because I was off on vacation last week and have been out of the loop for a bit. Getting back in the game feels so good, even though it took a little more effort. Oh, but it's always worth it. This week's OOP was a little higher than I like it to be. For all of you who follow my blog, you know I like to keep my out of pocket around$5 to $10. I think if you wanted to shave it down a bit to get closer to the $10 mark, you could omit the Tostitos and certainly the Mott's fruit snacks. That would have put my total right about at my goal mark without compromising too much in savings. 

I have been loving all the great printable coupons lately. I feel like those are the bulk of my coupons given to the cashier, rather than Sunday paper coupons. I noticed many manufacturer's offer some higher value coupons to print online (to entice you to engage in social media or offset the printing costs), either way, they usually come in handy. Every Tuesday I put out a list of some of the best printables you can find. If you missed this week's list see my posting here. (yes, I realize this week's was posted Wednesday, we flew back LATE Tuesday with two little kids who didn't sleep AT ALL on the plane. Lets just say, I was maybe a little tired)

Not a huge list of freebies this week! But there's always next week as a fresh round of coupons should be out with the new month of November. Check out my Freebie Friday's: What's Free With Coupons Currently post to pick up what you can get free while you shop.
