I went into Publix this morning expecting to spend $17 at the most, but then I put a few non-coupon products in the cart, and all of a sudden my grocery bill went up fast. It surely made me be thankful for my coupons. I did not have any $ off Publix coupons this week, so there were no coupons to carry any of the regular price items.
I was in shock over how little I got for my money.
