These are pictures of my 2 trips to Publix this week. They have until today the Gas Card sale where you can get a $10 discount when you spend $50 on groceries. In addition to the Gas Card y used my $5 Winn Dixie coupon and several manufacture and store coupons in combination with the store sale. (Remember that your local Publix will accept competitor coupons. The ones of your store are posted in the entrance of the Publix Store. If you have questions ask a manager). Well the first trip was for $72.61, for which only $22.61 is groceries and + $50 for the Gas Card.
I got cereal, pencils, 2 foot long subs and chicken tenders, frozen vegetables, chips, bread, cheese, yogurt and school supplies. Only for $22.61 this one.
My second trip was today Sunday and I really just wanted the Gas Card discount, so I manage to buy groceries we use and need at home again. It came out to only $17.08 on groceries after all coupons + $50 for the Gas Card and I bought Parmesan cheese, ketchup, tacos, nestle hot chocolate, several tuna pouches, a lot of yogurt, ground beef, Bubba Turkey burgers, sugar, Febreze Car, Nabisco assorted snacks, Kellogg’s Rice Krispie, Pepperidge Farm Breads and 2 travel size contact lent solution kits.
This is how I do it. My budget is about $50.00 for groceries for which I used only $22.61 last week and I have used so far these $17.08. The gas cards go in my gas budget for the month. Making it make sense to you will help you achieve your own goals when it come to the easy and complicated world of couponing. Sales comes and go and some of them you will be able to stack if the price is right.
