March Finals

In March, I spent a record-low $104 for groceries/toiletries from Publix, Bi-Lo, and CVS.  My budget was $200, so this is phenomenal to me that I was almost at *half* of that.  My savings rate was 63%.

Publix Savings:50%

Publix has some great deals this week.  This is what I snagged:  $89 worth of groceries for $44:
  • 2 Red Baron pizzas
  • 2 Flatbreads: B1G1F
  • 2 cans of chicken B1G1F
  • 2 Thomas bagels B1G1F
  • 1 carton eggs
  • 2 Publix lunchmeat
  • 1 head of broccoli
  • 2 packages of ground turkey
  • 4 cartons of Smart Milk
  • 2 pkgs. Gardein meat-free alternative
  • 1 6 pack Pepsis
I was able to use, among other coupons, a $5 off $25 coupon from Family Dollar (because there is one nearby they consider a competitor) and a Food Lion $3 off $8 meat order.
