So, one BIG tip I forgot to add to my original post:
GET THE WEEKLY ADD ON PUBLIX.COM each week on Wednedsay.
Plan your weekly meals around what is on sale, ONLY WHAT IS ON SALE.
My first Publix run was tonight. Before coupons from the paper, online, B1G1's, their sales, stacking, and stocking techniques, my bill was: $180.00
After utilizing all of my lessons learned my total bill was: $127.60!!!!!
That's a savings of approximately: $53.00!!!!
Not too shabby for my first go-round.
