I had no intentions of doing any kind of shopping today, in fact I was completely unprepared. My coupons were a mess, and I had not even looked at the deals. Thanks to Simply CVS and some impromptu deal calculations I was able to save big at CVS earlier today, and this afternoon I had to make it to Publix.

I had several coupons that expired today, which is the main reason why I had to get some shopping done. Another reason was that we were out of orange juice, and in my house that is not a good thing. With the help of Michelle at I Heart Publix I spent an hour cutting, clipping and organizing, and my husband made it home to give me a ride to Publix. It was a quick shopping trip, in and out with my husband and the kids waiting in the car. Fortunately I had a great cashier, and I was able to find everything on my short grocery shopping list without any hassle.

I stocked up on meat at Aldi before we went on vacation, and I am hoping to make a trip to Aldi Wednesday or Thursday to stock up on veggies, orange juice and staples.
