I had to go to Publix today (I am really loving that store now ) I have never stacked Q's until today so I picked the young girl that looked like she would let stuff slide I held the line up by accident today I grabbed the wrong wipes. But not a bad experience. Publix also doubles Q's up to .50 so that was an added plus.

As I was checking out the Quaker granola bars pile there was a product demonstrator for the sweet/salty she cohersed me to come sheck out her stand and in the process gave me a Q for $1/1. I asked if I could get another one so I could save on 2 boxes and she hands me a stack of them and says here I am done with my shift anyway I got like 10 extra. Doing the happy dance now. She also checked out my binder so of course I had to show it off.

I got:

2 - Quaker chewy granola bars BOGO $2.63-$1 Q
4 - Quaker sweet & salty bars BOGO $2.63ea-$2 Q (will explain in a moment)
2 - smoked ham slices SALE $8.69 (price combined for both)
2 - Gordons fish BOGO $6.99-$2 Q
2 - Dole fruit bowls $2.33-$.75
2 - Gerber puffs 3/$5 - $1.10
Downey on SALE $6.49-$1 Q-$.40 Q - .40 for double
Cascade action pacs on sale $7.99-$1 Q
Pampers wipes $6.99-$1 Q

OPP - $44.81

Saved - $31.62+$1.10 for puffs (the girl was new and didn't know how to ring up the internet Q so I went to CS to ask the policy, they gave me my money back.

**Someone remind me how to figure out the percentage of my savings. This is by far the best I have done. AND...I have added to my stockpile

ETA: I forgot that I could use a Q for all items BOGO and I only used 3 $1 Quaker Q instead of 6

Savings percentage: what you saved divided by (what you spent plus what you saved)

So: (31.62+1.10)/(44.81+31.62+1.10) or 32.72/77.53=42% That's great for the grcoery store!

Great job. I love love love Publix for BOGOs. I had forgotten how great they could be until Kim started posting her scores there. Now that is the main place that I shop.
