publix trip

Today I made a quick trip to Publix for the new sale week. Pretty proud of myself considering this was my second grocery trip for the month of February. I just couldn't pass up these excellent deals! I plan on showing you more of exactly how I budget and the first thing I do is make a list. I love lists, kinda my sickness (thanks mom). Below is my shopping list. Notice that everything is on sale and I have a coupon for each item. This is not always the case, I just happened to be lucky this week. Everything else is pretty much self explanatory, I print and take with me to the grocery and only buy what is on the list. Then, wager it into our budget and tada:

Good deals! I wish we had a Publix close to us. We were into clipping, researching and saving, but you skip one week and you fall back into the rut.
