Grocery Shopping Trip #2

Ok, so today I went to Publix again to buy groceries. I went armed with an envelope full of coupons and a list that was way to detailed and organized. But all the hours spent organizing my list, cutting coupons, and planning meals paid off... I spent $51.08 and I saved $51.93!!!!!! I saved more than a spent (barely... I recognize that :) But I still saved more than I spent!!!!)

Here is what I got for $51.08....

6 boxes of pasta
2 boxes of velvetta cheese
2 boxes of texas toast
2 cans of pasta sauce
1 box of beef patties
1 (2lb) bag of chicken breast
1lb of ground beef
2 bags of frozen vegetables
1 bag of egg noodles
2 bags of shredded cheese
2 packs of Kraft singles
2 gallons of water
2 bottles of mustard
2 Old Spice Deodorants
2 Old Spice Body Wash
2 bottles of BBQ sauce
2 boxes of cake mix
1 sour cream
1 bottle of laundry detergent
1 package of hotdog buns
1 package of hamburger buns
1 package of carrots

Because of all the food I have gotten in the past 2 weeks I don't plan on grocery shopping for a couple of weeks. Here are the meals that I have planned...

Spaghetti & Meatballs w/ garlic bread
Chicken Alfredo w/ garlic bread
Chicken Tostados w/ salad
BBQ chicken sandwiches w/ veggies
Hotdogs w/ mac & cheese
Hamburgers w/ veggies
Chicken and noodles

We are not "cook every night" people, simply because LG and J are gone so much, and because my work schedule is so crazy. So these meals will last us several weeks!! I am also good on toiletries, laundry detergent, toilet paper, paper towels, etc. So if I do have to run to the store it will only be for milk and possibly bread!!

That's awesome! You did a great job! But I thought I read on that at Publix you don't have to buy 2 for the buy one get ones, you can buy 1 at half price.
