I like shopping Publix on Thursday, the day the new ad starts, and getting it out of the way for the week. I had another great trip today. Well, other than the fact that my 4 kids drove me nuts pretty much the entire time we were in the store! Leanna is now obsessed with collecting tickets/coupons/blinkies for her "game." Yes, my daughter plays with coupons. The boys were just mischievous as usual. And I was tired, having just come from 2 hours at the dentist with all of them. But we survived, although the "I hafta go pooooootty" when we were just getting to the check-out nearly sent me over the edge. I got some great deals, a couple free things, a little overage, and plenty of meat and fresh produce! Not pictured are the two Boston butt roasts (for pulled pork!) and the two pork spareribs. I added up just the produce and meat (not counting the hotdogs - are those meat!? LOL) and the total was about $38. It brings my savings percentage down, but Tim won't have to say that I'm buying all snack type food and nothing to cook with. I also got a few things for our donation pile.
