Thrifty Monday

This blog is for you, Matt :) I hope you convince Emily to start cutting coupons when your Publix opens!

Today was a great day at Publix, I had a lot of stocking up to do. Ben has to fend for himself a good bit while I'm in school and I eat a lot of packed lunches and dinners. Unfortunately I couldn't show you what all I bought b/c a lot of it was cold and by the time I got home it needed to get in the fridge/freezer. But.... so you can imagine, here is my receipt. (Ben was cracking up when he saw how long my receipt was)

But here is my final tally!
My buget today was $80, so $9 over budget isn't bad. (I think I saved 56.7%) I now have a FULL kitchen! 6 boxes of green giant veggies, 3 boxes of toaster strudels (free!), 4 stouffer's pizzas, 6 healthy choice meals, 2 bags of Pillsbury biscuits, 2 loaves of bread, 2 bags of asian stir fry meals, 2 large bags of shred cheese, oranges, bananas, 8 yogurts, 2 butters, cream cheese, 2 taco dinner kits, 2 bags of chex mix, 2 bags of goldfish, 2 jars of pasta sauce, 6 cans of soup, 2 cans of almonds, 4 packs of ready serve brown rice, milk, ovaltine (no coupon) gatorade (penny item), 4 cans of shaving gel (the good kind!), toothpaste, tide, bounty, charmin, dog treats, raid, hand soap and 2 FREE publix green bags! So I bought 84 items for $89, like going to the dollar tree!

Is it bad that you can see the last 4 of my card? I hope not. :)

Back to critiquing tapes.... woo!
