A big thanks to all of you who have been linking up every Saturday with your incredible savings! Keep 'em coming!

Here is what I bought at Publix this week:

4 boxes chocolate Cheerios
1 gallon milk
2 containers Cool Whip
2 Scrubbing Bubbles Power Sprayers
1 bag Santitas tortilla chips
2 Birds Eye frozen vegetables
4 packages Kraft shredded cheese
1 Sara Lee pound cake
4 Tropicana OJ
1 green bell pepper
1 whole pineapple
1 loaf pumpernickel bread
1 loaf Italian bread
1 dozen eggs
5 Yoplait Greek yogurts
2 Marie dressings
1 Breakstone sour cream (16 oz)
1 bulb of garlic
1 bunch bananas
1 package sliced mushrooms
2 tomatoes
1 cream cheese
2 onions
1 package lettuce shreds
1 package dry black beans
2 packages strawberries

2nd Week: $58.28
3rd Week: $56.23
4th Week: $53.04

I always enjoy seeing that you buy real groceries (not just 20 tubes of toothpaste)and save a bunch doing so! You're very inspiring. Thanks!

Thanks awesome, Maria! I love Farmers Markets. =) There's an AWESOME one on Beaver Street that I want to try out, but it's far away from me. Which do you go to? My Publix had the one stop one store booklet - it's on Race Track Road in Julington Creek. Many store should have them. It's just totally random. Usually my store doesn't have the booklets, but I got lucky!

Anonymous - Thanks so much for the encouragement! =)
