Tobins' Tastes: This Week's Publix Trips 2/2

This Week's Publix Trips 2/2

Tuesday's Trip = Completely Free!

Today's Trip Part One

Today's Trip Part Two (plus two 5 pound Purdue whole chickens, not pictured)
This week I took an extra trip to Publix. I usually try to only go once a week and get all my shopping done in that one trip but this week it was not the case. I actually have two Publix's on my way home from work so at least I did not go out of my way for the extra trip.

I was cleaning out my coupons this week and in the process I found a few extra coupons for the current sales and couldn't pass up the opportunity for a free shopping trip (my second ever!).

Today's trip which was my normal weekly was a little bit higher than normal but since we are having people over for the Super Bowl, I needed some fresh items to supplement our stockpile. I also took advantage of the $10 gift card deal and my $5 off Albertson's coupon by buying some whole chicken, bacon and olive oil that was on sale.We also got our deep freezer in this week (a very generous Christmas gift from our parents) and I had been waiting to stock up on a few things until we had the extra storage space.

 Make sure you check out my Sam's Club gift card GIVEAWAY before it ends this weekend!

    1. That was for Chiquita. And if her Publix is like mine, they carry another brand like Del Monte.
