With things slowing down now that Christmas is nearly here, I decided to help fill the day with some posts to reminisce on coupon deals past. Isn’t that what the holidays are about…memories? Also, make sure you claim your FREE 3-pack of Olay Samples if you haven’t done so yet either. Finally, don’t forget about the FREE 8×10 Photo Enlargement ($3.99 value) at Walgreens.com through 12/25! Merry Christmas!
This is a Publix trip from November 2014. Remember when they’d have great overlapping promotions and we could get whole turkeys for nearly free? In this trip, I paid $2.87 total for everything, which meant I picked up the two turkeys for $1.44 each and got the tea bags and V8 for free. Gosh I miss those days. The trip as originally written is listed below. Obviously, the links to coupons aren’t any good; these coupons are from years ago 😉
We had a great trip to Publix this morning! One nice thing about shopping early was having the choice of turkeys. We actually chose smaller ones so that we aren’t making a commitment to eating turkey all week when we make one, plus they fit nicely in the freezer 🙂
The Lipton bottled teas aren’t pictured, because we were thirsty! FYI – The coupon beeps on the bottled teas, but there are no issues on the boxes. We used a $5 off $30 Winn-Dixie competitor coupon on our order, so there’s an extra $5 of savings beyond what is listed with the items below. Here’s what we bought, along with the coupons used:
