My husband was out of his favorite Jergens lotion, so I was excited to see that Publix had a 25 percent off Jergens sale that I could combine my Jergens coupons with I even managed to get bottles with 25 percent extra in, so that was an added bonus. Of course the lotion was snatched up, before I could get it in the picture. Other than that I just picked out a few deals such as free Panko bread crumbs, plus picked up some milk and my family’s favorite Publix lemonade.
I did not even have to look at the Publix produce section, because I got my produce at Aldi yesterday, and I still have leftovers from last week.
I ended up only using one of my $5 off $50 Publix coupons from the Publix calendar, so I passed on my remaining coupons to other Publix shoppers. 
It was amazing to see how excited they all were, and it reminded me of how much couponing has changed since I started couponing ten years ago. Although the rules have become stricter (surely thanks to the Extreme Couponing show), the way most of the other customers in the store views coupons have changed to a more positive note.
