Publix, 7/30 - spent $14.92, saved $29.33

It's been too long since I posted a shopping trip.  To be honest, it's been too long since I had a trip worth posting, and this one barely qualifies.  Thank goodness for free marshmallows and super cheap Pop Tarts to inspire me to publish this trip.  I am stuck in the habit now, it seems, of trying new recipes.  I love that I am finding new favorites, and I'm really enjoying the variety I can serve my family.  I have begun a good list of ingredients I need for these new recipes so I can know what to stock up on when the right sale hits.  So, as I have for the past few weeks, I bought what I need today, not necessarily what was on sale, at least for the most part.  I ended up noticing things in the store that I needed but had forgotten to add to the list, so I didn't have coupons for those items.
Here's how we did:

Pillsbury bread flour, 5 lb. - $2.99

King Arthur's whole wheat flour, 5 lb. - $3.99

1 dozen Publix eggs - $1.69

2 Kellogg's Rice Krispies - BOGO - 2 for $4.09

Publix mini marshmallows - $1.39
Used FREE peelie on Rice Krispies (wyb 2)
Paid: FREE!

6 boxes Pop Tarts - BOGO - $2.59 for 2
Used 2 $1/3 Target printables
Used 2 $1/3 MQ printables
Paid: $3.77 for all 6, or just $.63 per box!

Publix sliced pepperoni - $3.39

2 Cabot white cheddar cheese -- 2 for $5

Used $10 gift card I received as a gift

Paid: $14.92
Saved: $29.33 (includes $10 gift card)
Percent saved: 66.2%

The Pop Tarts are probably my favorite deal, followed by the marshmallows.  I wish I had thought to look for Rice Krispie coupons to make this deal even better.  I may get back to get a bit more of these things before the sale ends.
