This morning I headed for Publix early, because this is the best time to get grocery shopping done fast. I had my detailed grocery list, my stack of coupon and my calculator, so that I did not get any surprises at the check out. I did not purchase any fruits or vegetables at Publix, because I will be headed for Sedanos and Aldi tomorrow, and the produce is much cheaper there than at Publix. I checked out the Publix Halloween clearance sale, but the prices were still high for me. I did pick up a big bag of small lollipops that will be perfect for kids goody bags, so that went into the party box.
