Back to Publix today. I wanted to hit the Pop Tart and Brownie Mix BOGO before the flavors I wanted got wiped out this weekend. I blew my budget this week but that's OK, it's been a slow couple of weeks and there were a few things I just couldn't pass up. I already had plenty of canned chicken but they had "peelies" on them and it made them so cheap I could not pass them up. I stacked manufacturer coupons + Target coupons on the Pop Tarts and Tropicana and plan to pick up some more this weekend when I go for my .01 item. The bananas and Kool Aid were some cheap filler items to help even my coupon vs. items count. When I stacked coupons for the Pop Tarts, Tropicana and the Bayer it put me over my limit so needed some cheap filler items to balance the total. I save way more by stacking the coupons than I spend on the filler items and it helps me avoid the dreaded register "beep"
