Reader Shares Her Publix Savings (and uses Knox coupons wisely)!

Sarah e-mailed me about her incredible trip to Publix this week. I'm very impressed. =) She was lucky enough to receive some of those $4/1 Knox coupons in the 1-24-10 RP. If you're unfamiliar with the beauty of the $4 Knox coupon, you can go read this post that fully explains why it is so spectacular to use at Publix! (Basically, it's like a coupon for almost $3 off of your entire grocery bill. I've used them countless times before. The link to the above post is from a printable Knox coupon that was available a while back).

Anyways, here is what Sarah bought:

2 Contessa frozen meals
2 Pillsbury toaster strudels
1 box Fruity Pebbles
1 box Honey Combs
2 loaves Pepperidge Farm bread
4 Juicy Juices
I bag of Wonka gummies
I can of Pam cooking spray
6 boxes Knox gelatin
1 Hunts ketchup
2 cans Rotel tomatoes
2 bottles Kraft BBQ sauce
1 gallon Milk
1 bunch of bananas
2 Boxes Honey Grahams
2 boxes Aleve
1 12 pack of Fanta
2 12 packs of Diet Coke

Total Before Sales and Coupons: $101.50
Total saved from sales: $36.12
Manufacturer coupons used: $38.95
Store/Competitor coupons used: $6.75
Total amount saved: $81.82
Total paid after all sales and coupons: $19.68

Did you catch that??? She paid $19.68 for $101.50 worth of groceries. Now that's my kind of shopping! I'm sure you can also see how amazingly wonderful that Knox coupon is. She used 6 of them on the 6 boxed gelatins, giving her approximately $15.66 in overage! ***Your Publix has to allow overage for this to work. It just depends on your store. Some allow it, others do not.

Way to go, Sarah! =)

WOW! I never realized the value of a Knox coupon. I have 8 of them from the 1/24 inserts!! I just need to find a store that lets me get that much overage...I've found it usually depends on the cashier and not the store itself. Hmmm...
