Shannon’s Publix Trip: Spent $7.61 for $104.84 in Groceries

Here’s what I picked up at Publix for $7.61 plus tax, saving $92.77.  I was a little frustrated when I got to Publix this morning – it was the first day of the ad (here in Alabama our ads begin on Wednesday), and at 9:30 in the morning they were already out of almost all of the items using coupons.  I compromised on some flavors and got a ton of rain checks (thank goodness for those!), but I was frustrated that so many of the shelves were already cleared.


If by some chance you’re planning to stock up on twenty of one item, consider calling the store and asking them to order those extra for you (they’ll do that!) That way they’ll have plenty for everyone, and we’ll all get a deal or two. The store that I went to was already out of so many items, and your manager will be happy to place a special order for you.  Please (please?) don’t wipe out a shelf just to add to your stockpile ~ we all love getting a deal or two!

  1. The Velveeta slices on sale are 12 oz and the Publix store coupon specifies 16 oz package.

  2. Karen Green Knight says:

    I printed out the $7 on $30 from Earth Fare store too. Which Publix takes the Earth Fare coupons?

  3. Kim Jennings says:

    Great deals! I have had the same issue with shelves being already cleared. On almost everything I plan to get. It makes it hard to plan ahead. Thank goodness for those rain checks!

  4. Karen Green Knight says:

    Janet M Anderson, PPP posted Hwy. 72 and the Publix out in Harvest takes the Earth Fare Coupon. Great. I will be heading in one of those directions to use it this week.

  5. Great trip! I also get frustrated when lots of deals are already gone. With a 3 yr old and 7 month old its hard to get to the store multiple times a week (sometimes I wait on getting a rain check because I try to make it back before the sale ends).

    I really hope I can find that Eucerin Aquaphor baby at my store. We use that. It’s great for sensitive skin. Thanks for posting about it.

  6. As much as I love Publix, I dont think that they always stock properly for sales. I have gone @ 8 am first day of sale (at stores that open @ 7) and they already low or out of stock.
