PUBLIX: $14.82 for 20 Meals + Vitamins + Lots of Chocolate Treats

PUBLIX
Extreme Savings For A Small Shopping Trip
We didn’t need much of anything from the supermarket this week.  The only thing I really wanted to grab while on sale was the new product by Silk – Fruit & Protein beverage.  I enjoy trying new “healthy” products, especially when I have awesome coupons.

  • 8 Vitalicious Egg White/Low Fat Cheese/Whole Grain Breakfast Sandwiches, 2 ct. (clearance $1 ea)

  • 2 Sundown Vitamin D ($3.29 ea)
  • 2 Hershey Mini Chocolates, 15+ oz ea (clearance, Easter candy $3 ea)
  • 1 Russell Stover Chocolate Covered Marshmallow Eggs (clearance, Easter candy $0.25 ea)

TOTAL VALUE:  $71.97*
TOTAL COUPONS:  $16
TOTAL COST:  $14.82
TOTAL SAVED:  $57.15*, or 80%
20 Meals: 
  • 16 Breakfast Sandwiches + 4 oz organic carrot juice
  • 4 Protein & Fruit Beverages (Each container has 32 oz, but I’m counting 16 oz as one meal replacement for a lunch or a light dinner @ about 300 calories and about 10 grams of protein – I’m doing this part from memory.)

*NOTE:  Total Value and Total Saved per receipt are quite wrong, because they don’t take in to account the clearance items.  They rung up so that they don’t show as sale items with a “you saved” amount listed.  So I recalculated using the regular prices for the clearance items to more accurately reflect the Total Value and Total Saved.  Vitalicious sandwiches reg. $4.49 ea.  Hershey’s reg. $5.99 ea.  Easter eggs reg. $1 ea.

CVS: A Weird & Wonderful Savings Day $45 for $0.64 (incl Conair Ionic Blow Dryer)

 

Okay.

So more than a month has passed since the last BIG HOLIDAY SALE.  I can’t remember if it was Black Friday or Christmas.  There was an very nice Conair ionic blow dryer (29.99) special for 9.99 and get 5 ECBs.  I decided to take a Rain Check by the time I got to the third CVS and couldn’t find one.

Here are the Weird and Wonderful Parts:

Long story made short, I accepted their kind offer to buy a better model (39.99) for the same 9.99 and get 5 ECBs.

Used an expired CVS $10 ECB.  It was a week expired and I asked politely before I shopped if they would still accept it, and the Manager said “no problem”.

Got the $5 ECBs and then two more for $1 ea printed.  The cashier and I read them but couldn’t figure out what they were for.  Doesn’t really matter to me.  🙂

Used the $5 ECB to buy 3 Hallmark Cards (.99 ea), 2 Cadbury Eggs, 1 Chocolate Marshmallow Heart.  I didn’t have any coupons at all with me, so I restrained myself.  Paid .64

Received $3 ECB

  • Started with $10 ECB
  • Paid 0.64
  • Kept $5 ECBs
  • Gained a 39.99 ionic blow dryer, 3 nice Hallmark greeting cards, and 3 yummy chocolate treats.
