I almost did not make to Publix during this week’s ad cycle, but at the last minute I managed to gather my troops to scoop up some great Publix deals before they were gone. Since I will not be going to Aldi this week, I picked up a few extras at Publix. There was one specific sale that I could not miss – the French’s Yellow Mustard. I have never liked mustard, in fact there is only one person in my family who eats mustard is my picky five-year-old son. He loves mustard on anything, and since there is finally something he likes I make sure to keep it in stock. Last time Publix had a BOGO sale on French’s Mustard, I did not have any coupons though, so this time we were down to our last bottle.
As a bonus I picked up Hot Wheel cars for the holiday stocking (read my Countdown to Christmas series), and I also squeezed in both Rubbermaid drinking bottles for my oldest boys and Playtex sippy cups for my youngest son.
