You know you are old when a.) on your birthday you can’t actually remember how old you are, b.) no one else can either, and c.) your idea of a kickin’ good time is scoring some great deals at the grocery store.
I’m pretty sure both Winn-Dixie and Publix held their fabulous sales this week just in honor of my (33rd, for the record) birthday today because I gotta tell ya, my shopping trips rocked today!
It made me almost as happy as these flamingos on my lawn this morning:
Aren’t they funny? (Thanks again Rachel & Fred!)
Here is what I got:
At Winn-Dixie I spent $6.31 for $107.68 worth of groceries, a savings of 95%.
It was by far my best Winn-Dixie trip ever. I often feel like I end up overspending when I go to Winn-Dixie, but today everything worked out perfectly. The manager did have a little trouble getting the last B1G1 Right Guard coupon to scan, but he finally pushed it through and all was well.Grocery Breakdown $5 off $30 purchase Winn-Dixie in-ad coupon 16 boxes Mueller’s Pasta BOGO @ – $1.67 (16) $1/1 Mueller’s Product (email coupon–sign up) Final price: +$0.17 each–moneymaker! 2 Kraft Homestyle Macaroni & Cheese, BOGO @ – $2.99 (2) $0.50/1 Kraft Homestyle Macaroni & Cheese Dinner printable or printable Final price: $0.99 each 2 State Fair Corn Dogs, BOGO @ – $3.99 (2) $1/1 State Fair Product printable Final price: $0.99 each 2 Armour Pre-Cooked Meatballs, 14oz, BOGO @ – $4.99 (2) $0.55/1 Armour Meatballs, exp. 3-31-11 (SS 01/30/11) or (SS 01/23/11) Final price: $1.94 each 10 Right Guard Total Defense 5 Deodorant, BOGO @ – $6.49 (5) FREE Right Guard Body Wash/Deodorant wyb Select Items (RP 3/13/11) (3) $1/1 RightGuard Body Wash (Peelie on 3 of the deodorants) Final price: FREE! 1 Clorox Bleach- $1.67 $0.25/1 Clorox Regular or Scented Bleach, exp. 4-24-11 (SS 03/13/11) $0.50/1 Clorox Bleach, exp. 3-31-11 (Winn Dixie, Spring Forward) Final price: $0.92 each 2 Hillshire Farm Deli Select Ultra Thin Meats, each – $3.33 $1/1 Hillshire Farm Lunchmeat printable or printable Final price: $2.33
At Publix I spent $10.64 for $136.82 worth of groceries, a savings of 92%.
My total actually came to $14.33 at the store, but when I got home and looked at my receipt I realized I was accidentally charged for 3 gallons of milk instead of 2, so I will stop by for a price adjustment later today. I was especially excited for the BOGO Sabra Hummus, but I only managed to print 2 coupons before it expired. And that is exactly why it is SO important to print those coupons early! Oh well, those are the breaks. I was also pretty psyched about the BOGO frozen Home Run Inn pizza–Husband’s all-time favorite–which is a brand new item at Publix. I couldn’t resist buying 4 of them, even without a coupon!
