Publix total: $29.97
Freshfields Farm total: $14.79
Grand total: $44.76

I'm under budget, maybe for the first time ever. I had huge smiles as I walked out of the stores today. Let me show you what I bought from Publix:
Emerald nuts were BOGO and I had a coupon, making them $2.40 each instead of $5.79
Alexia potatoes were 2/$5 and I had a coupon; original price $3.49, my price $1.95
Zucchini was on sale at Publix for $.99/lb so I bought some, and I was glad to see the price at Freshfields was $1.19/lb. The sale at publix was a bit of a fluke, but I'm glad I hit it.
Starbucks coffee was originally $8.81 but with coupon and sale matching my cost was $5.49
I bought three containers of stock since it was a low week, they were $2.99 each and I had a $1 off coupon, so my total on three was $7.97

From Freshfields farm I bought:
Red Potatoes, Carrots for $1.67 (publix price $1.78) Gala Apples for$1.49/lb (publix price $1.99/lb), Tomato, and Grapes for $2.19/lb (publix price $2.99/lb), Romaine Lettuce, and Sweet Potatoes for $.69/lb (publix price $.99/lb)
I also got free gords from Freshfields Farm! FREE! They had some boxes of small pumpkins and gords, the kind you use for decoration, out in boxes for free. I made a little centerpiece for our tiny table.

Happy Savings!


  1. Mel, I found an AMAZING produce store not far from 4R. It's on 1792 across from Einstein and next to Krispy Kreme called "Eat More Produce." I thought of you because yesterday I got: an eggplant, 4 jalapenos, 3 limes, a bunch of cilantro, fresh mint, an english cucumber, and a box of like 12 small campari tomatoes for less than $5! It's mostly local and organic and just AWESOME... and they have an email list where they sent coupons and weekly specials. :)

  2. Can I just say you are so a woman after my own heart? One of my best nights (or days) is when I *get* to go grocery shopping (ALONE - no kiddos!) and seeing the bottom line of how much I save!??! Is it too early to enter the "L" word into our relationship? I really really like you :)
