Crazy Coupon Capers - lots of free ziplocs!

I am still trying to eat out of my pantry and freezer, but couldn't pass up some of the freebies and great deals this week. And I did need a few things for our 4th of July cookout too.

Publix trip #1, 2 and 3

Total $90.30
- $72.50 in coupons
I paid $17.80!

The ziplocs and Raid (and hotdogs!) were all free after coupon and I used (3) $5/25 Rite Aid coupons to help pay for my other groceries!

Publix trip #3

Total $48.66
-$44.61 in coupons
I paid $4.05

Ziplocs and Raid were free, A1 was $0.10 after coupon. Used a $5/25 coupon to help pay for the other groceries. Have I said before that I LOVE Publix!!! I love their coupon policy of taking competitor coupons and being able to use 2 coupons - a store coupon and manuf. coupon on one item. I went to a new location this week and they were sooo nice! No complaints, just smiles about processing my huge stack of coupons.

Kroger trip

Total $29.95
-$11.49 in coupons
I paid $18.46

The cheese was $1.03 after promo price. The chicken was on sale for $1.99/lb. but I had a coupons for $1.00 off a package of chicken. I found the smallest packages I could find - most were 1 1/2 lbs. So I got the boneless, skinless chicken breasts for about $1.25 - $1.33 /lb. Great price for chicken breasts! Hoping they have them on sale for $1.99 again before the coupons expire at the end of the month.

Total for all trips $40.31 - so right at my $40.00 a week grocery budget with lots of ziplocs and chicken to spare! :)
