This week I made two Publix shopping trips, as I wanted to get in on the Huggies mail-in-rebate, because diapers are always needed at my house. I went to grab a few things today as well as a part of my regular Target – CVS – Publix shopping day. I was amazed to see that Publix ($0.99/lb) had a better price on chicken drumsticks than Aldi ($1.29/lb), and after I used a $1 meat coupon, I got it down to $0.75/lb. Cucumbers were also cheaper than at Aldi, (see the grocery price comparison) and because I had a lot more coupons than products thanks to stacking coupons, I threw in 6 pieces of corn for $2 to keep the computer from beeping. My oldest son sure loves this last impulse addition to my grocery trip. There was only one of the Shower gels left, otherwise I would have “bought” more free shower gels and deodorants, but hopefully they will have more next week.
