This week’s grocery shopping…

This has been an awesome week for snagging great deals! Tons of the stuff that I bought this week was free and lots of the other stuff was heavily discounted! I used a lot of internet printable coupons this week, so be sure to click on the links and print the coupons for your use as well!

This week I shopped at Target, Wal-Mart, CVS, and Publix. I will also be making one more trip to Publix on Sunday in order to get the penny item. I will post my list for Sunday with coupon links so that you will have enough time to take advantage of those deals as well.

  1. Great job-Impressive totals! I didn’t know Piggly Wiggly offered x/xx coupons…where can you find those? I never shop there but I would love to take them to my Publix as they would consider them a competitor! I’ll happily pop over to the pig to grab a coupon 🙂

      Thanks so much! I get the Piggly Wiggly coupons from the Enjoy the City coupon booklet that schools sell periodically. You can also order them online here. There are 6 $5/$25 coupons and 6 $5/$50 in each book. The books cost $20 each, so if you use just 4 of these coupons, you make all of your money back – plus there are lots of other great coupons in the books as well. You order the books by city, so just make sure that the coupon is listed for your city’s book. It really is an awesome coupon book…I use it all the time!

  2. Thanks for the info–I checked it out but I am afraid to order since Piggly is not listed as one of the merchants–but now I may just visit to see if they have any coupons to offer! Thanks a bunch!!
