My dad and his girlfriend is coming to visit this week, and it has been more than a year since we have seen them so everyone is excited. This also means that I wanted to make sure that my freezer is completely stocked up and ready for easy meals for 7, so that I easily can put something together, even if we have been out all day. When I got home from grocery shopping, I cleaned my tiny freezer, organized everything and made sure to cut up and pack away the chicken so it is easy to get to.
I was excited when I discovered that Publix FINALLY had their 1 gallon orange juice on sale. At $3.49 it actually makes it a few cents cheaper than at Aldi, and since this is my family’s favorite orange juice and we have visitors coming I picked up 3. I had actually planned on getting Tropicana Orange juice at CVS, but they were out, so I got a rain check instead. Perfect timing! If you are wondering where all the produce is – then just think Aldi. I am planning an Aldi shopping trip for tomorrow, as Aldi has great deals on potatoes, onions and green peppers this week.

I went to Publix three times this week: Once to get milk before my coupons expired, then once to pick up prescription medicine for my toddler, who is finally getting over a month-long stomach virus, and then today I went to get my weekly Publix shopping done, and amazingly I only had my toddler with me – what a difference it makes. It was a very enjoyable shopping experience, and I had a efficient and stress-less check out experience as well.
