*NEW* Publix Weekly Ad & Spreadsheet 12/26 – 12/31

Okie dokie guys, here is the new ad/spreadsheet. Since this is brand new I have video instructions on the front page so you can click it to see how to use the spreadsheet (click the circle in the square beside the volume icon to see the video full screen).  Once you have watched the video just click the View Ad-Printable Spreadsheet button to get started!!

I am hoping everything is working but since this is brand new there may be a few kinks here and there. There are a few modifications that are still to be made (icon changes and such) but for now…here ya go.  I hope you like it :-)

Be sure and click the help button for more information including a video on how to use the spreadsheet!

    I like the new feature but it does not allow the list to show up in Google reader which I use to do quick checks for items without having to go out to the site. Any chance that can be fixed? Even with out that, the print feature looks great.

  2. danielle says

    michelle, just wanted to let you know with the musselmans applesauce if you go onto their website, you can print a $1.00/2 coupon

  3. Maranda says

    Oh my heavens this is AMAZING!! I love the check box option, and I SUPER love being able to put in how much I need of the item and delete coupons I don’t have. The calculator is wonderful. You have made it so easy and I can not thank you enough for all your hard work. This is a great Christmas present for ME!!! Thank you so much and Merry Christmas!

  4. Nannette A. says

    That is a fantastic spreadsheet! I am so glad that you’ve “given” it to us! One question though, will it include the current green and yellow advantage sales items? I do hope so!

  5. Lori says

    On the “you saved”… it only calculated your savings in coupons not the savings in BOGO… is that the way it is supposed to be?

    • says

      yes it is savings in coupons…since there were so many variable and sales prices I had to just choose one way to show savings. You can still see your total savings on the Publix receipt…this is just to show you what you can do with coupons :-)

  6. andieoh says

    Thank you so much Michelle! I can only imagine how much work went into this. I truly appreciate all you do. Merry Christmas to you and your family.

  7. Tara says

    I have a couple of questions. Will you still be able to do the green checkmark for stockpile price? And, when do the ads get back on the normal schedule? This ad looks to be small.

    The spreadsheet looks great and will certainly save a lot of time. Is there a way to copy and paste into our own spreadsheets so we can save it? I like to track my stuff in excel each week to see my combined spending with Publix, WAGS, CVS, and Rite Aid.

    Thank you! I recommend your site to everyone I know!

    • says

      The yellow star is now replacing the stockpile button (maybe–I can’t decide if I want to do a Super Deals button as well…still thinking about that one :-) )

      I am not sure about C&Ping…I would guess not??

  8. says

    The Glory greens has a peelie coupon that I picked up the other day I can’t remember the amount off but I think it was maybe .55 off wyb meat and greens. It is out in my binder and truthfully it is COLD outside and I can’t bear to go out and look but wanted to let everyone know to be sure to check their binders for it.

    I am LOVING this is BOGO cause I buy tons of greens to feed my son’s Bearded Dragon-oh yea the lizard loves his turnip greens!

  9. Jennifer K. says

    Thanks so much for this and eveything else that you do. You are my # 1 go to site and the spreadsheet is fantastic!

    Can’t wait to try it out-I usually do all of this by hand in Excel!

    Happy holidays!

  10. Carie G. says

    This is AWESOME!! I am still pretty new at this but have been spending a lot of time writing out my list with each coupon and this TOTALLY eliminates the need to do that so I’m very thankful!! :) Great job and thanks!

  11. Marni says

    This is so great thank you!

    I have a question, I’m looking for the target Starbucks printout but can’t find it. did it expire?

  12. Jen says

    For a great deal on the Clorox wipes – combine the manufacturer’s $2/2 coupon from the All the Trimmings book and the $2/2 Publix coupon from the Publix Happy Holidays flyer and get them for free!

  13. Alycia E says

    OMG I think im in Love with this new spreadsheet. I cant wait to utilize it. You work so hard for us Michelle and we all appreciate it.

  14. Michelle says

    You just made my New Year’s Resolution for time management so much more feasible!! =D Was eagerly anticipating this spreadsheet and think it’s WONDERFUL! Well worth the wait! Thanks again for ALL you do.
    Merry Christmas to you and your family!

  15. says

    Not google reader phone friendly but looks like from comments above a text version is coming soon, yay! I’m excited to try this out on my pc very soon! Thanks for all your hard work! Merry Christmas!

  16. Chrissy says

    When I make the spreadsheet, it does not have the plus (+) signs on the side where you can add and change the coupons… am I doing something wrong? The only thing that shows up for me is the remove buttons.

  17. Susie says

    Can’t wait to try it out – but this week is just too bus so Sunday I’ll come try it. Looks like something my kids will like to help me do. Good math lessons too!

  18. says

    Not a whole lot great for me this week, but thanks for all the hard work.

    Btw, this list does not read well at all on my phone (no modem for my computer yet aaarrrggg) will you please continue to do a regular post as well. Please :)

  19. Kristi says

    Wonderful!!!!! I have been doing this manually since I couldn’t find a website that had all these features. I love how I can remove/add q’s that I’ll be using. You have given me a great Christmas present w/ this new spreadsheet!!!
    Thanks and Merry Christmas!!!

  20. Lori says

    Wow, LOVE LOVE LOVE that!!! I have printed others (on another blog, of course) that do not have the option to remove unwanted coupons, I LOVE this one so much more. Looks very easy to use. THANKS SO MUCH, MICHELLE!!! :D

  21. Susie says

    Not sure if I will use or not since I don’t always prepare my list all in one sitting – I tend to add things and edit over several days. Doesn’t look like I’m able to save this list and edit as I go so I may use to just print all of the items I MIGHT want to use and then use the old-style Excel spreadsheet to fine-tune over a few days.
    It’s an awesome tool, though! Much more user-friendly than some similar features I’ve seen at other sites. Much faster as well and I need that because I have a slow,clunky computer.
    Thanks, Michelle!

    • Carrie #2 says

      I have a same situation. Would there be a way to save our lists if we can’t work on it all in one sitting? I usually copy/paste my list from your site onto word and then work on it when I can for several days like Susie, above, says she does.

      I also hope that we can change the prices of the items to fit our region. Here in NE Florida, our prices seem to be consistently higher than what you list for the Atanta area (one reason I can’t get my weekly bill less than $50 like so many others seem to be able to). In the video, you said that we can add/delete as needed as you did with your example for bread so I’m hoping that means I can also change the prices of items already on your list (ex: the Nabisco crackers BOGO for $3.39 to $4 something that they are here). I’ll find out as I play with it – now to make myself wrap presents instead of play with this new feature will take nothing less that a steel determination.

      All in all, I LOVE the idea of this and I think this feature alone has bumped you ahead of other Publix sites. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you and Merry Christmas.

    • CrissyQ says

      @Susie…Other sites have already got this type of list. I never used them. I liked the other one much better because it was easier on the eyes, and I could type in the quantity of items on my list. You said you are gonna use the old excel type spreadsheet to fine tune. How are you going to do that? Do you have it saved in ur computer or is there another site that has it? Can you help me? Thank you…

  22. says

    THIS IS AMAZING!!! Thank you Michelle!! Seriously this will make life so much easier!! I especially love how you’ve made it available to remove coupons I may not have. Seriously I wish someone would do something like this for Kroger and my life would be perfect LOL okay maybe not my whole life but definitely my couponing life hehehe.

    Thank you for providing such an amazing service I better go click on your ads and generate you some revenue!!

    Thanks again for all that you do to make my publix shopping so much more of a pleasure each week!!

  23. wordpresswrench says

    Wow, I am amazed by the massive response toward the spreadsheet, we worked really hard at making this plugin for all the readers. I am Jonathan Yarbor from WordPressWrench, the lead developer on this project. If you have any technical difficulties be sure to reply here or send your problems via the Contact Page and we will get back to you! Thanks for all your love and support, and have a Merry Christmas!

    • says

      I could not get the spreadsheet to print once it was created, what version of excel is this in or does that matter? Any suggestions would be appreciated….. Merry Christmas

      Thanks

    • Kim says

      A nice tool, and a great idea. However, I have a few suggestions – most importantly, it would be really nice that when you change the quantities of an item, the price is updated. Right now, I have to use my own calculator to figure out the cost when I am getting more than 1 of an item, and sometimes I forget to change it, and then I end up with the wrong total.

      Second, would there be a way to distinguish the quantities of the coupons from the quantities of the items? (for instance by indenting them 5 spaces inward on the page) It’s a little confusing looking at it as it is.

      Third, it would be nice to have a “Notes” column that could be used for any important notes about an item or coupon.

      Thanks!

  24. Lavonna says

    This is great! But, is it possible that you could make it so that I could copy it into my own spreadsheet? I’d like to be able to sort it according to the aisle numbers in my store – I know, I’m OCD but it sure makes my shopping trip go a lot faster! Thanks for all you do!

    • Carrie #2 says

      This is exact why I copyied/pasted the old lists into word. That way I could also manipulate it into the order I go through the store.

    • Susie says

      I also copy and paste it into my own sheet. I do it because I work on my list for days instead of at one sitting. THis is a neat feature, though, for those that it works for.

  25. Rachel says

    I FREAKING LOVE IT!!!! THE BEST SPREADSHEET EVER!!! THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH FOR ALL YOUR HARD WORK! YOU ARE THE BEST! MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!

  26. mary says

    It doesn’t appear that the $2/2 clorox wipes coupon match. The yellow advantage flier coupon is for the 35 count or larger size and the sale is for the 32 count canisters.

  27. Amy C. says

    WOW!!!! This is a GREAT function!! Thank you so much for adding it! It must have taken awhile to get that created, but it is soo worth it!

  28. Deanna says

    I like the new set up, but I have not totally tried it yet. I am just wondering how you know which items are good for stocking up on. I see the best deal icon. Does this replace the check mark? Thanks

    • says

      I was wondering the same thing. I really loved the green check marks when I was short on time b/c I could just look down really quickly and make sure there wasn’t a great deal I was missing, Plus, for newer couponers it really helps to point out what’s a great deal and what’s not. That’s the most common question I get asked is what’s a good stock up price.

  29. Diane says

    I can only see the BOGO list – when I click on the other categories they show up briefly then disappear. How can I fix that?

    Looking forward to giving the spreadsheet a try…Thanks for all the work!

  30. Cherie says

    I love your site and all that you do for your readers. You have saved me and my family hundreds of dollars and I have told many friends about your site. For the way I use your site, I actually prefer the old weekly ad layout. I don’t have a need for the spreadsheet functionality – the prices in my region are different and I shop multiple stores, so I have my own grocery spreadsheet that I prefer to use. Combining the two (ad and spreadsheet) into this new format will be slightly more cumbersome for me and will slow me down. I loved quickly scrolling through all the departments on the old list to see if Publix had enough on sale to even make my weekly shop. With this new list, I now have to click and open each department – fewer clicks were better for me. Plus, the big green checks indicating stock pile items were handy too when just eyeballing the list. Overall, the information that I need is all still here, it will just take me longer to build my grocery list each week.

  31. Dale says

    I prefer the old way. Of course – I’m not much on change anyway but being new to couponing the old way was much easier. I don’t need to be able to print a list – I like seeing the matchups and the complete savings.

    • CrissyQ says

      Yeah i hear ya…This style was already in existence on other websites. I appreciate the effort but this is nothing new. The old one she had was one of a kind, now its just the same as all the others :(

  32. Kelly says

    I love this idea! One thing that would make it easier for me is if you listed the price after coupon. There are a few sites that do this already, so I have to go to those and check to make sure i haven’t missed any free or super-cheap items, then come back here. I’d love to be able to do all my planning on one site! Thanks!

    • Laura Truelove says

      I agree. It helps me see what my final cost will be when using the coupon. I usually use another site to make my list then come here for coupon match ups that were missed on other sites. Plus I read all the great comments!

    • Melanie says

      I completely agree — confusing and time-consuming. I have no need of a spreadsheet or to track my savings. I used to just go through the list and copy and paste what I wanted to buy into a Word document. Then I could rearrange the items by store aisle — this part is VERY important to me! Cutting and pasting from this new format is a pain, and I dislike not being able to see the entire list at once. Thanks for the effort, but I wish you could make the old format available again. This doesn’t work for me. Also, I miss the different colors for manufacturer vs. store coupons; this is harder to figure out. Ugh!

  33. Valerie Smith says

    For some reason my totals on this spreadsheet were coming up wrong. It was saying my total should be $65 when it’s actually on $12????

  34. Quen says

    Check your binders because I found blinkies for $2/2 any TGI Fridays frozen snacks or Nancy’s frozen appetizers exp. 1/31/11.

  35. Quen says

    I found $.40/2 Totino’s pizza rolls and other q’s ( B2G1F Hefty Zoo Pals products, $1 Hefty waste bags,ect.) on AllYou.com.

  36. April says

    I hate to say this but I am not a fan of the new layout. When I click on a department, if there are not any coupons listed, I can’t read or see the item description. Also, I don’t like to have to keep clicking on the departments, I want to see them all at one time. This new lay out does not help me in any way, it actually reduces my view. I LOVE IHEARTPUBLIX and I don’t want to use another website, but I can’t see anything, any suggestions?

    • melanie k says

      Seconded. I appreciate that a lot of hard work went into this, and that it is better for some — but not for me. I’d like the option of using the old format as well.

  37. Jen says

    So does mean we will not know what the “Super Deals” are for each week?
    Also, I noticed there is no comments letting us know what we would safe. I guess that will not be listed anymore either? just checking to make sure I am not missing something?
    Thanks!

  38. Mel_FL says

    Thanks for all your hard work. I am just beginning to learn and love it. I tried to new spreadsheet and was not able to print. No opinion yet on the new or old method as I have only been doing this for a short period of time.

    Wanted to mention that target had a coupon for Pace Picante or Salsa for 50 cents off a 16 oz can will go well with this weeks BOGO

  40. Carmen says

    Are you still marking when something is worth stocking up on? Not sure if you stopped or if there haven’t been any excellent deals. I’m not giving this my full attention what with being out of town. But I really appreciated you noting those for us newbies. :)

    • Sarah says

      I think the stock up symbols are now the yellow stars that you see next to coupons. If you have those coupons, it makes it a good stock up price. That is how I understand it to work.

  41. Alison says

    I love this spreadsheet. But I’m having one minor issue. For some reason, I am not showing the icon to ‘add’ my own coupons. I’m wondering why this is?

    Also…I’m wondering why my dollar amounts don’t update when the quantity is changed.

  42. Nicole says

    Love the new format …. But ,Can you also add the old format as well for those who like to work on this over a few days ? Or if we could save our work that would be great too ?? Thanks !

  43. Joan says

    Is anyone else having trouble seeing all of the entries? All of the BOGO’s show up but some of the other categories only one or two items are legible, I can see where there are more, but the boxes they are in are too small and they can’t be read. Thanks

  44. Nicky says

    So I have been working thru the new format to get ready to go shopping and I found that I too love the old format (Change is Hard:)) . One of the main problems that I am finding is there is no way to just quick print the whole list for reference . I used to print the add make my notes and go shopping ?

  45. teresa dutton says

    Is there a way to put an item back on the list if I delete the item by accident or forget to check mark it before hitting the “make the spreadsheet” button? I had already done all the other work (coupons, etc.) when I realized I’d missed a couple items. I didn’t want to start again, so I printed and hand wrote the ones I’d missed.

    Thanks!!!

  46. April Wall says

    This is awesome! I have one question though…is there any way to select all items (with one check) then delete what you don’t want when you go through the spreadsheet? I like to look at my coupons, including local competitor coupons, against the final list and sometimes buy things I would not have tried if they are free or close to it.

    Please let me know.

    • Cheryl says

      Another website I use has a ‘select all’ button. Can this one have that as well. I too like to see and print the whole list. I sometimes take the list to work and decide what I want to buy during breaks/lunch break etc. comparing to coupons I might have which sometimes aren’t on your list. I don’t have internet access at work. Being able to save the spreadsheet to return to it and complete it would also be nice. I don’t always have time to finish my shopping list the same day/time I start it.

  47. Lisa says

    Hello. Can you please explain how the UPromise coupons work? For example, I printed out the “my ecoupon” for the Ragu, however there is no bar code. Did I print out the wrong coupon? Or does publix just manually enter it in?

    • Barbie T says

      I have a UPromise account. Every time I shop, I scan my key-chain card so anytime I buy a product of theirs, a few pennies get added to my account. When I activate the coupons, I get 0.50$ or how ever much it says added to my account. I also activated my credit cards so that when I go to certain restaurants and use my card, they track it and add a percentage of what I spent to my account. I haven’t used many of the eCoupons or gone to many of their restaurants but so far I have $15 (in less than one year’s time).
      It can add up in the long run!

  48. Kelly says

    Is there a way to save the spreadsheet? My computer froze three times when I was making my list and I lost everything three times…Also, it’s printing out larger than I like but I don’t have any printing options; is anyone else having this problem?

  49. Patty says

    There were $1/2 peelies on the cheez-its at my store. Also there were coupons for $2/2 2 liters when you buy 2 cheez-its right next to the cheez-its. So $2.59 for 2 boxes of cheez-its and 2 2 liters.I bought the BOGOs sodas. This made for 30 cents overeage.

  50. Kianne says

    Fantastic Idea, but its not working for me. I can populate a spreadsheet, but when I click to edit the quantity, it doesn’t auto-change the price. It also doesn’t auto-populate any added coupons, i had to add those manually, no biggie… but its also not minus-ing my coupons, even though they say -1.00 it will add it to the total, then the coupon savings amount is a crazy number that doesn’t make sense. LOL

    This is gonna be mega awesome when all the kinks are ironed out… can’t wait, honestly! :)

  51. candace says

    Not liking this new thing. I like to be able to just print the list with the “super deals” in plain view, then plan my shopping trip on that. I only have a short amount of time to do this while on break at work and this spreadsheet definitely ruins it for me.

  52. Stephanie B says

    Love the new layout spreadsheet, and I know it must have taken TONS of time to do– so thanks bunches! But I really miss being able to see the big green checkmarks for “buy it now” stock up prices. Is there any way you could somehow incorporate that? I’m not well-versed in spreadsheet creations, so I’m sorry I can’t suggest a way to do it. Maybe someone else knows?

    • Christine says

      Mine printed. I just used the print button at the bottom of the spreadsheet and my print box showed up. I hit print and there it was. I don’t know if this is helpful or not.

      Have you tried highlighting the spreadsheet, click on the highlight (anywhere) and select print. It should print automatically (depending on how you are set up) or show you your print box. Then choose “selected” and it should print from there.

  53. Christine says

    I love this! I also think that all of the great ideas others have suggested would make the spreadsheet even better. Being able to save the spreadsheet would be extra helpful when I have to make my list between “Mommy”, “Sweetheart”, telephone calls, dog issues, etc.
    Thanks for all of your hard work.

  54. cindy says

    I didn’t see it mentioned, but there is a $1/2 Pace Picante Sauce in the blue Coca-Cola booklet with Santa on the cover. I got it from Publix but they are MFQ’s

  55. cindy says

    And I guess I’m looking at free clorox wipes> They are $2 each and with the Publix Q in the yellow flyer $2/4 stacked with the All the Trimmings booklet MFQ $2/2

  56. Lisa says

    I cannot get the spreadsheet to print. Each time I click the “print spreadsheet” button, it just sends me back to the top of the page and does nothing. Do I have to install a speacial app or something?

  57. laur says

    This spreadsheet idea is incredibly awesome… I haven’t shopped with it yet, but it made organizing my trip take much less time than usual. Thanks!!

  58. Deeann says

    I don’t see alot of the Target coupons listed on the Target website. I am using a computer that i do not print from :/

  59. Wendy says

    The spreadsheet prints in such tiny letters I can barely read it. I also can’t get it to let me alter items to add notes to them. Can you help me with this? Thanks

  60. SMS says

    Would it be possible to also post the list like it used to be? I am having some of the same problems as the others have mentioned above. It’s taking more time, ink, and paper. :(

  61. Sharon says

    The TGI Friday deal was really sweet for me. About a month ago there was a blinkie box in front of these so I helped myself to about 40 coupons. These
    were on the BOGO this week and the coupons were for $2 off of 2!!! I paid
    .75 1/2 cents for each box !!

    • Alycia E says

      I dont mean to be rude but im with the previous poster 40 coupons really? You must be planning on putting on 20 lbs for the new year. Now im glad i didnt find the coupons because i certainly dont need them more then you.

      • Maureen says

        Alycia, you are being mean. You don’t know what her intentions are. For all you know she is feeding the homeless. I wish everyone would keep the comments positive!:)

  62. Jenn says

    A MILLION thank you’s to you for the new spreadsheet. Its totally brilliant- best one EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This is going to save me SOOOOO much time (and money)!

  63. Kathryn says

    This spreadsheet is an awesome idea!! The only thing is I’m having trouble with it locking up my computer while trying to use it. Would it be possible to have the ad and deals listed separately from the spreadsheet?

  64. Lindi says

    just a quick question…i’m late with my shopping this week. if the clorox wipes are sold out at the store is there anything i can do to still get the deal? i know i can get a raincheck for the price, but the coupons will be expired by the time the store will get more in stock (the coupons expires 12/31). is there anything the store will do or did i just miss out this go around?

    • gayla says

      i would speak to customer service desk, the same happened to me the other day and they said they had another truck coming in that night and that they would accept the coupon til sunday cause that’s when they send in their coupons or something. it never hurts to ask. :D
