I had an awesome trip to Publix this morning. I supposed I should say “trips,” because I made trips to three different stores to use all my I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter coupons. They have a limit of two per shopping trip. At the store where I did the big transaction I used the in-ad coupon for $10 off a $50 Gas Card when you buy $50 of groceries. Since we were going to purchase the gas anyways, the $10 savings are applied to the groceries in the statistics at the bottom of this post.
Here’s what I bought, along with the coupons used:

The statistics below exclude the value of the gas card. However, as mentioned above, the $10 of gas savings are applied to the groceries since we were going to buy the gas anyways.

For those wondering, I paid $45.05 + tax on the dog food, paper towels and eye enhancers (about $46 total if you included the tax.) I left with a $50 gas card 🙂Extreme Couponing Tip: You can usually get two prints of most internet coupons.
