Pasta for 15 cents, coffee for $2 - a savings post (Publix)

So if I'm fully throwing myself into this blog, I need to phase out my old savings blog. Which means I need to start making my savings posts here!

We went to Publix tonight. I scored four boxes of Barilla whole grain pasta for 15 cents each (on BOGO sale for 65 cents each, and I had two printable $1/2 coupons), four packages of Laughing Cow cheese for $1 each (on sale for $2 each, and I had two printable BOGO coupons that are no longer available) (I LOVE LAUGHING COW CHEESE - I got French Onion, Garlic & Herb, and Original Swiss, but I'm still annoyed that my local Publix briefly carried the new flavors - I fell in total love with the Chipotle Queso - and then hasn't restocked them. I got two packages in Massachusetts that I'm sort of hoarding. But I digress, as I tend to do...), and two packages of New England Coffee for $1.90 each (on BOGO sale for $2.90 each, and I had two printable coupons for 50 cents off each, and those doubled to $1 off each) (and if we use them in time, I'll submit the UPCs for a really cute free tumbler). I also used two coupons that Kroger sent me (for Cascade and Morningstar Farms); I keep meaning to ask my Publix which other stores it considers a competitor so I can use even more non-Publix coupons there.

Then I bought, well, a bunch of other stuff that wasn't on sale. Vitatops (I'm a big fan of the chocolate flavor and the banana nut flavor, and Publix has them at the best price of all the stores near me) and Publix-brand low-fat vanilla ice cream (to use in milkshakes in the Vitamix) and some other odds and ends. A successful trip for sure, even if it wasn't my most frugal. (I wound up saving 25% off my total.)

The sale prices and deals in this post are good in the Atlanta area until Wednesday, August 25, 2010. (Well, actually, the Laughing Cow may be on sale a bit longer, as it was an unadvertised deal in the store.) Tip of the hat to I Heart Publix and Coupon Mom for giving me info about sales and deals.
