started out with a two day migraine this week, so I put a lot of my regular grocery shopping on hold. This morning I finally did make it to Publix for a quick Publix grocery shopping trip, as we were completely out of meat. I had done all of my calculations, written out a detailed grocery shopping list etc., and I was planning on submitting for the P&G rebate, but I ended up spending less on P&G products than I had calculated as the make up was $1 cheaper than advertised.
