I Saved 68% at Publix Today!

I made the Publix run today and managed to score some great deals.  I waited until today because Kellogg's cereal and Pop Tarts were half off for the weekend only. 

My haul included 11 boxes of Special K, Rice Crispies and Raisin Bran Cereal, 6 - 12 count boxes of Pop tarts, 70 jars of Stage 2 Beechnut baby food, vitamins and more!

Total Before Savings - $187.63
Final Cost - $60.26
Amount Saved - $127.37

And the receipt, well it was at least six feet long!  I know that some of you are wondering why I purchase all that breakfast food and the baby food...  Well, it may take us a few months, but the cereal and Pop Tarts cost me around $18 dollars.  That's barely more than $1 a box!  I'll put a good many of them back in the closet and we'll pull it out as needed. It's very rare to be able to get any of those items for that little money. And the baby food has expiration dates that are well into next year.  And the newest little man in the family will be packing them down by December of this year or earlier!  For the 70 jars, I only paid around $12!  I made  most of my baby food with Brenna, but a few extra jars were very useful when traveling or eating out.  This will save me some time in the future.

I didn't get pictures, but earlier this week, I was also able to score 2 bags of Kraft Home style Macaroni and cheese, Shredded Sargento Sharp cheddar, 3-4 packs of Yoplait yogurt and 2 large bags of Wise potato chips. I only paid $4.56 for all of that!  I hope next weeks Publix deals match this weeks!

I hope you were able to find some great deals this week.

What's funny, Deb, is that I went to Publix today too and I saved 68%! That must be the amount of the day. I spent $53 and saved $112. I had two gallons of milk and a half gallon of chocolate milk along with the Poptarts and Special K. I love me some Publix! The guy behind the counter was so impressed with my haul he just kept saying, "That's crazy; that's crazy." I hope that you're doing well.

That's awesome! I was so bappy to get the cereal and Poptarts. I never buy poptarts and the kids were excited! I have to message you soon. I still need to do a party with you!
