Saturday Savings, 3/20 -- Publix

Okay, somebody's been reading the smart shopping blogs. I went to Publix this morning and several of the things I wanted to get were completely gone. ggrrr. It's a good thing we have more than one Publix close by so I can try another.

Here's how we did today:

8 Mueller's Whole Wheat penne pasta -- B1G1 $1.29 for 2
Used 8 $.55 printable coupons

4 Wanchai Ferry frozen meals -- $7.99
Used 4 $1.50 manufacturer coupons
Used 4 $2 Publix coupons from the Yellow Advantage flyer
Paid: $4.49 each or $17.96
(Kind of a lot, I know, but I've been wanting to try these for a while. We'll have to make 2 meals to feed our whole family, which will make a dinner meal cost at least $9.00. Ouch. But as a treat for Mommy to have the convenience of the ready-made meal, it's worth it to me. PTM is coming up, after all!)

2 Lance cracker multi-packs -- B1G1 $2.89 for 2
I must have done something wrong, because mine didn't ring up at B1G1 and I just now noticed. Maybe one of the items we got wasn't Lance? I'll have to check the pantry.

Not as good as we'd normally like, but remember that we came away with $50 in BP gas! I'm going to store that away for vacation -- Hurray! We can drive to Disney without paying anything else out of pocket!
