Publix Trip 7-26-12

I made my weekly trip to Publix this morning and was happy to convert another person into the couponing life.  As I was checking out the man behind me (who clearly had disdain for my coupons) asked the cashier (in front of me) what the point was for all of those coupons.  The cashier who knows me well said "She saves a lot of money each week with them."  I was a little aggravated that he acted like I wasn't there, but I wanted to show him why I use all those coupons.  So, very politely, I said "This is why I use them." And I showed him my receipt with the total saved amount.  His eyes got wide and said "You saved that much on that buggy of groceries?"  I replied "Yes, sir.  It's well worth the time and effort and it helps me provide more for my family."  He then asked for more information and I gave him my card.  He wasn't so rude after that.  :o)
Anyway, I saved more than I spent this week so I call it a success.  I had to break it up into separate transactions to use the competitor coupons.  Here's what I got:
