Yesterday was a good shopping trip even though the amount I paid was a little high but I felt good knowing the amount I was able to save.  The items you see in the picture are a little expensive but pairing it with Publix Weekly Deal and coupons you can see that the overall savings was about 71% which is pretty good in my book jeje..

Yesterday was also my son School Open House and since we were a little early we decided to make a quick trip, I had my coupon in order inside my envelope and I had my Shopping Trip Spreadsheet ready as well (Most of my prices were accurate since I had gone to Publix a few days earlier and knew this weeks items that were going to be on special I took advantage to look at prices).  So we made a quick trip and was able to get all of the items I had listed but because Ore-Ida coupon stated you can use a max of 4 in the same shopping trip we decided to get another 4 later on.

Once we were at my sons school we stopped by each of his period and met with his new teachers, it was exciting to see how many parents were there, we think this year was a lot fuller than previous ones.  Our other son was also excited to go even though he graduated from high school this year but he wanted to see some of his teachers once again.  After we finished we realize it was still bright outside so we decided to go back to Publix and get 4 more of the Ore-Ida Bold & Crispy deal, we usually go back on Saturday or Sunday but seeing we had some time to spare we decided to go ahead and get a few more.

Hope this motivates you to save while you shop and here are a few post on how I have been able to save since I started couponing (saving).
