Publix Trip- $172 worth for $95.18+ tax (Including 2- $50 gas cards)

I love to procrastinate and that is what I do! I headed to Publix on Wednesday (the last day before new weekly specials are implemented). This was a family trip for us, since my hubby was off. I like it when we shop at Publix as a family because 1) it is of tremendous help for me when I can shop while my husband watches our 3-year-old and 2) because I love it when my husband gets to actually be present when I get good deals! So we headed to Publix and as usual, I had my coupons ready and a list of things we would purchase. Wednesday was a busy day for us so I did not get a chance to snap a picture-booo! By the time I was able to get a picture, a portion of the things were missing/ had been eaten or given away. So you're going to have to take my word for it this week! It was a great trip for me because I got things I needed and yes, gas cards! I love the gas card deal (If you have not yet noticed!)! Once again, the gas card deal goes something like this (and can be found in the weekly ad for that week): buy $25 worth of groceries [this is before coupons] and get $10 off any $50 gas card. Yes, that easy!!! Not only is it easy peasy, but we all need gas anyway so why not get $50 worth of gas for $10 less? So this is how my trip went:

I bought the Centrum Silver Multivitamins (for adults 50+) for my mother-in-law and father-in-law and the Probiotics for myself. The lady behind me in line said she was shocked that I had saved so much and congratulated us. That always makes me smile and feel good! I, of course, suggested to her! 


  1. You know how impatient I am with grocery shopping but I actually like going to Publix because of all the savings and it sure did feel good when the lady behind us in line congratulated us

  2. I know :) Feels great! Grocery shopping really is a pleasure at Publix!

    1. Nothing wrong with last minute shopping lol I do it all the time. I think sometimes they stock up again so the product is on the shelves. The gas cards always are amazing $95 for $100 in gas cards gotta love it.

    2. Yes! I love how Publix comes up with different ways to help their customers save money! So many coupon books, flyers, clubs, sales, and deals! Can't get enough of Publix. And like you said, A fresh start, they are always stocking up! Most other stores aren't like that. Thanks for following my blog!!
