The Weekly Haul: Publix – Worth $130, Spent $62

publix trip 7-2-14 


Welcome to The Weekly Haul. I’m share my shopping trips with you in hopes of motivating you to use your coupons and apps to save at the register each week!

This week’s trip was at Publix where I spent $62.50 (including our 10% tax, after sales, paper coupons, Publix e-coupons and an iBotta rebate) for $130.60 worth of groceries. I only purchased items I needed to round out my menu for the week. I stocked up on the $2.99/lb. meat deal at Fresh Market again this week, and I purchased the bulk of our produce from the farmer’s market (here’s my post about that trip).

This week I used and my own coupon stash to prepare my Publix couponing trip.

Just the highlights:

 The chips were this week’s penny item.

Did you know…

You can use both a MFR and store coupon against one item at Publix? Target printable coupons count as a store coupon (competitor coupons accepted!).


If you want to jump on the band wagon, you’ll need to start getting the paper so you have access to the coupon circulars. Here’s a link to a discounted subscription. is my favorite spot to print internet coupons.

Be sure to download the iBotta app. (I got $.25 back on one gallon of milk thanks to iBotta!) Here’s my post about how to use iBotta.




Use a sale/coupon match-up service. They are usually always free! As I mentioned, I used for this trip. I think I only used one or two Publix digital coupons on this trip, but that’s another great resource you should be signed up for! You’ll need to register, and then just enter your phone number at the checkout register (before you begin the payment process) and the coupons will automatically be deducted.

Have fun savin’!  🙂
