Publix, 8/20 - 90% Savings!

We went in to Publix early this morning (like 7:30) to see what deals we could find before other couponers swarmed in!  I had two deals to work that would each give overage.  We are tight in the budget this month, so I wanted to spend as little as possible.  I have a good sized shopping list, but I only bought what would allow me to spend the least.
Here's the rundown:

2 Sundown Naturals vitamin D - $2.99 each
Used $6/2 Publix coupon from the Green Advantage Flier
Used 2 $1/1 printable coupons - link at
Paid: FREE for both, plus $2.02 overage

2 packs Paper Mate pens - $1.99 each
Used a rain check to get them for $.50 each
Used 2 $1/1 Target printable coupons (thanks, Terri!)
Paid: FREE for both, plus $1 overage

1 lb. Rico kidnew beans - $1.59

1 small Kikkoman soy sauce - $1.45

2 small yellow onions - $.55 ($1.19/lb)

2 gallons drinking water from the refill station - $.60

Total paid: $1.09
Total saved: $10.00
Percent saved: 90.1%

Side note: Since the pens have a shelf price of $1.99, using the raincheck saved an additional $2.98.  Taking that into account, my percent of savings becomes 92.3%.
