Publix 4/19: 56% Savings

I really really really didn't want to pay almost $7 for the cheese tortellini...but I'd planned to make this recipe tonight, and didn't want to make a trip to Trader Joe's, just for that, where it is cheaper.  The good news is this is basically a double batch, so I can freeze half of it and have it on hand for next time.  But darn, it really messed up my savings!

***As soon as I hit post, I find out there was a frozen brand of tortellini on BOGO this week! {face palm}***

I was very appreciative of the fact that my Publix accepts Target coupons though, because competitor coupons made up the bulk of my coupon pile this trip!

I don't normally buy chips very often, but with someone's birthday coming up, we're having people over, and everyone loves to snack on chips, right? Figured I might as well buy them with they were BOGO!
