Publix Deal – Saved 54%!

The deals at Publix this week are not spectacular; however, there are some noteworthy deals. Also, Publix has 3 “Buy Theirs, Get Ours Free” deals this week.
BrandChallenge_week_of_7_30
When you buy Sun-Maid Raisins, McCormick Sloppy Joes seasoning mix, and Tyson Chunk White Chicken, you get the comparable Publix product for free.

You might notice that I spent more than $50 this week (well, not yet, but I will by the end of my “budget week”). This is because we are switching up our envelope system a little bit to combine our weekly budget, our Costco/Surplus budget, and our eating out budget. I will try to post soon on the details of this new system and why we decided to switch.

And now, here is what we bought at Publix this week (sorry about the terrible picture quality):

Weekly Menu

mpm3
I am so excited that we are going to be in town for the whole week and that we are getting back into our routine! Between being out of town and being disorganized while we were in town, we have spent way too much money eating out this month. It just goes to show that planning and organizing ahead of time really helps to decrease the amount of money you spend by decreasing your spontaneous spending. So, I am definitely looking forward to being able to follow a menu plan this week! Here is what we are eating this week:

Monday
Breakfast: Waffles, blueberries
Lunch: Chicken salad sandwich, chips
Dinner: Steak fajitas, Spanish rice, salad with Honey-Lime dressing, kiwi

Tuesday
Breakfast: Waffles, bananas
Lunch: Chicken salad sandwich, chips, yogurt
Dinner: Roast beef, carrots, salad, garlic bread

Wednesday
Breakfast: French toast, peaches
Lunch: Grilled cheese, tomato soup
Dinner: Homemade cheese pizza, salad

Thursday
Breakfast: French toast
Lunch: Leftovers
Dinner: Meat loaf, mashed potatoes, green beans, garlic bread

Friday
Breakfast: Blueberry pancakes
Lunch: Leftovers
Dinner: Chicken and Dumplings, vegetable

Saturday
Breakfast: Blueberry pancakes, peaches
Lunch: Leftovers
Dinner: Dinner out
