Last week there were a couple of mistakes on my grocery bill, so today I took in my receipt, and they were kind enough to fix the problem. My local Publix have great customer service, and the managers know their coupon policy which is one of the reasons why I keep coming back. We have a larger Publix at the same distance from our house, but using coupons there can be such a hassle, and they do not accept Target coupons. 
Today I went to Publix to stock up on juice and free razors. My kids have been complaining that there has been no juice in the house for a few weeks. Yes,it is true I ran out of juice! I have been picking up Apple juice at Aldi for $1.29, and then we have started getting Publix lemonade again, since it is steaming HOT in South Florida these days. My five-year-old was missing his grape juice though, but at $3.99 for a bottle of grape juice, there was no way I was going to buy it.

It was quite a shopping trip though – speed shopping, as my husband called to say he had to go to an appointment. I had my two youngest sons with me, and they managed to behave rather well thanks to the knowlegde that if they didn’t there would be no Publix cookie.
