I ran into Publix this afternoon to get some items that I had run out of over the holiday weekend, and was really hoping to find some carefree to soak up some of the costs associated with the dishwashing detergent and the sunblock but I was out of luck in that area but I did find some peelies which helped out. One thing you will probably never see me buy is bread, because I try to only make my own hence the giant bag of flour in the back there.
Here’s what I bought and the coupons used:
