Grocery Deal of the Week

I do my big grocery shopping trips every two weeks to coincide with payday, so I buy two weeks worth of food at a time rather than one week worth as some do. However, in between I hit up the BOGO sales at Publix when I can get really good deals. This was one of those weeks. Since Publix’s sale dates don’t coincide with those of other grocery stores, I don’t think I count them in my weekly totals correctly. What I bought this week probably should be added to my total from my big grocery trip earlier, which would still put me at $80-some for two weeks, which is $40-some a week. Not too shabby.

On to this week’s deals. We were running low on spaghetti and sauce (spaghetti is one of our favorite meals), so when I saw Publix’s BOGO deals this week on Mueller’s pasta and Prego spaghetti sauce, I knew I needed to stock up. I had a $1/3 coupon for the pasta, which made it $0.93 for three boxes, and I had $1/1 coupons for the sauce, which made the jars $0.03 each. Yes, you read that right, THREE CENTS EACH.

So, stock up I did.


That’s 15 boxes of pasta, 10 jars of sauce and three containers of laundry detergent, which was also BOGO and, with my $2/1 coupon, I got them for $0.99 each. The grand total? $11 for what would have cost me $63. It would have only been $9, but I threw in a pack of sponges that we needed. Not bad at all. I might even use a few more of my coupons to get a few more jars of sauce since, you know, I can get them for $0.03 each. Why not stock up now?

I usually take advantage of the Publix sales to add to my stockpile. When I hit the grocery store next week for my bi-monthly big trip, I won’t be spending much at all since the following week is Passover, and there are only two starches Joe can eat. And, since we have *so* much food in our pantry right now, the shopping trip for the following two weeks will be just as light. Hooray!
