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.

Publix and Wal-Mart Deals – Spent $33.24, Saved $69.25

Although today was a yucky rainy day, I decided Logan and I would still run some errands. It ended up being a very successful shopping day! Also, one of the great things about Publix is that they almost always offer (and sometimes insist) to help you to your car with your groceries. I usually say no, but when it is raining I accept the help, so that I can get Logan in the car as quickly as possible (they are usually more insistent on rainy days! – Don’t worry, they have umbrellas and big, hooded raincoats!).

Today, I went to Wal-Mart and Publix. I actually made 2 trips to Publix today – this wasn’t planned, but it ended up leading to some awesome deals! Here is what I bought:
