My Publix Trip - Free Groceries w Gas Card Deal

 
I'm still not in the writing groove and don't really feel the inspiration to write some thoughtful blog posts. We've had a busy holiday week with several parties and events, and now it's time to figure out what we spent in 2013 and how the budgets all worked out. We had a pretty good year couponing, but not nearly as good as the past couple years - we've spent the same OOP but yielded less savings and product purchased. But its comforting to know coupons still save us money and the time and effort is worth investing in.
 
Anyway, onto my shop. We paid $48 for a $50 gas card and got all our groceries for free essentially (savings over $90). If you don't go shopping soon, you're going to find empty shelves for the Angel Soft TP, the Velveeta cheese,  Fresh Express Ceasar Kits and the Beneful dog treats. The shelves at one store were all empty of these items, and we just turned around and left. The Beneful dog treats are a money maker (-1.71 per pair) and the cheese is free with the family celebrations coupon (www.getthesavings.com/publixfamily ), and the Fresh Express lettuce is free with coupons (http://www.tonytantillo.com/newsletters/). It was also the last day to use the Hallmark bogo PQ's to give some overage on the Valentines .99 cards.
