I literally just got in the door from my Publix grocery shopping trip. With the car trouble, I have not been doing much shopping this week, but we were out of milk and meat, which meant a trip was needed. So today, on a late Friday afternoon, I was crazy enough to drag three boys with me to Publix. Surprisingly, they did fantastic, and they were on a savings high from their fabulous trip to Kohls, which I will tell you about next.

While I had coupons with me, I did not have any great coupons, so I did not expect to save much. I even bought products that did not have any coupons, and since I cannot get to Aldi until next week, I had to buy things at Publix, which I would otherwise have bought at Aldi at a lower price. In the midst of my shopping trip I discovered some great coupons, and I ended up saving more than I thought I would. I bought lots of snacks this time including ice cream, cookies and chips, and my boys sure were excited about the content of the grocery cart.
