Super Saver - Publix 6/5

Happy Sunday to you! Well, this week, we did quite well at Publix. Not quite as amazing as last week's savings, but I was still pleased with it. There just didn't seem to be as many coupons for the items I was looking for, but some weeks are like that. I try to strike a balance between getting healthy, satisfying food for my family, and stocking up on items just because they're on sale. Plus, with limited storage space - I can only stock up on so much! :)

Here's our meal plan for this week:
Sunday - French Onion Soup (I'm making it for the first time!), Bruschetta, Salad
Monday - Italian Grilled Cheese Sandwiches (made with mozzarella and tomatoes), Salad
Tuesday - Hot Dog Goulash (an old family favorite. It's basically sauteed hot dogs with ketchup and mustard), we had a bunch of hot dogs leftover from a cookout
Wednesday - FFY (or "Fend for Yourself")
Thursday - Thai Chicken Coconut Curry
Friday - Leftovers

All of the ingredients for the meals above were included in this shopping trip, except for the hot dog fixings (which we had leftover), chicken breast (we had some in the freezer), coconut milk and red curry paste (both of which were purchased for about $4 at World Market.) Other items purchased take care of breakfasts and lunches during the week, too.

So, here's what we purchased:
2 Cartons of Beef Broth (B1G1)
2 Cans of Campbell's Clam Chowder (Sale and "C" - Coupon)
2 Bags of Purina One Cat Food (B1G1)
2 Boxes of Krusteaz Muffin Mix (B1G1)
2 Blocks of Publix Chunk Cheese (Sale)
1 Box of Publix "Nutty Nuggets" (like Grape Nuts)
2 Bags of Publix Steamer Vegetables (Sale)
1 lb. Granny Smith Apples
1 1/2 lb. Bone-in Chicken Breast (good for a cookout next week)
4 slices Deli Mozzarella
1 Zucchini
2 Jars of Bertolli (Organic was supposed to be on sale, too, but it came up as the wrong price, and I didn't notice until now. Be sure to check your receipts!) (Sale)
1/2 Gallon Publix Milk
1 Loaf of French Bread
1 Bunch of Cilantro
2 Bags of Publix Salad Blend (B1G1)
3/4 lb. Boar's Head Ovengold Turkey
2 Containers of Breyer's Ice Cream (B1G1)
2 Tubs of I Can't Believe It's Not Butter (B1G1, C)
2 Tomatoes (Sale)
1 Red Bell Pepper
2 White Onions
1 Small Package of Whole Carrots

Regular priced total: $101.70
Price I Paid: $59.32

I didn't have as many coupons as usual, but I did have $3 worth in manufacturer's coupons. I also had $7 in store coupons (a $5 coupon I got from Publix in the mail, and a $2 Harvey's produce coupon). I saved another $31.75 buying sale items.

Total Savings: $41.75

I'll be posting recipes this week, so keep a look out. Have a great Sunday!
