This morning I took my kids to Publix to put a big hole in my back-to-school shopping list, and I sure got a lot of items crossed off the school supplies list. I used a  lot of Target coupons to get free school supplies at Publix, and I made sure to get enough of everything for a year. The Crayola Crayons and the 10 ct pencils were $0.33 each, and I could have gotten them cheaper elsewhere. However, I had so many coupons that I needed some none coupon products, as the register will otherwise start giving trouble. The boys were great, and it was a smooth shopping trip with no coupon issues despite the fact that I had a whole bunch of coupons.

If you are wondering what we are actually going to eat this week, make sure to check out my latest Aldi grocery shopping post at The Aldi Spot, because I stocked up big time last week.

I have linked up the coupons available so that you can get free school supplies too. Even if you do not have a Publix you can get lots of freebies at stores such as Walmart and Target with some of the coupons mentioned above. Some of the above coupons may no longer be available.
