I had a pretty nice Publix trip today. I wasn’t too excited about this week’s ad, so there wasn’t much on the list. I’ve been trying to avoid buying too much junk food and this week’s sale wasn’t very cooperative. I gave my Knorr Sides and a few bottles of Aleve to a friend, but the rest is for me. Even though I’m trying to avoid eating garbage, I couldn’t resist the chocolate Sara Lee pound cake slices. (At least I only bought one box!) I also saw cottage cheese in the ad and decided to buy it; the funny thing is that they aren’t really on sale at my store…$2.50 is the regular price!
Here is what I bought, along with the coupons used:
