Weekly Shopping: 9/23 - 9/29

Here are the totals from my three trips to Publix this week. I made multiple trips to stock up on Smart Balance milk and rain checks for said milk. For $1 a gallon I am willing to sacrifice room in my fridge for some serious stockpiling. Thankfully the half-gallon cartons it comes in are nice and square!
I'll be combining the trips to one list for simplicity's sake.Surprisingly between the second and third trip I hit the jackpot for $X/$XX coupons! When I got home Tuesday I found a Family Dollar flier in the mail that had a $5/20 purchase coupon on the back! I also happened to be in the good fortune to receive a Dollar General mailer yesterday for $5/$25 and was able to also print two coupons for weekend-only $5/$25 purchases from an email they sent out to savings subscribers.


And I was just thinking that my September totals were a little high probably because I ran out of those wonderful Save-A-Lot coupons and don't feel right about printing multiples from each PDF. At least for a couple weeks here, I'll be back to seeing extra savings. This also meant that my final quick trip for just milk was going to have to be beefed up a little to make a $25 minimum. My strategy was this; use the $5/$25 from Dollar General first as the $5/$20 Family Dollar doesn't expire until 10/13 allowing me to use it for next week's sale. The other two Family Dollar $5/$25 coupons are only good 9/30-10/2 - perfect for my planned shopping for this week. I was able to break my list down in half and still have two $25 totals easily, even after moving items from nest week's list to my shopping trip last night.
