My toddler and I did a lot of shopping this morning including Publix shopping, and although we did not get the best deals, we still got what we needed without spending a lot. At Publix we picked up a few deals, and we also got four free movies from the Blockbuster Express Kiosk. I had one free movie code, and then I had ten free movie codes from Erewards that I could use. Since our freezer is not working properly, I decided not to buy any meat until it works without problems again.
After a trip to Walmart yesterday, I will admit that it felt great to be back at my local Publix where everyone smiles, greets you and helps even without asked. My son sure loved his free balloon and cookie too:)
