Kern's juice
I just finished putting all the groceries away, and I do not have an inch of space left in the refrigerator or in my small freezer. With $240 worth of groceries, it was quite a haul that I brought home today, but I am very excited about my deals. I am especially thrilled about my Ore-Ida deal, because I had lots of Ore-Ida coupons to combine with the BOGO sale at Publix. I also love the fact that I could get Kern’s Nectar Juice for $0.30 each. Every time I went to Publix for the past couple of weeks, I have grabbed a couple of coupon booklets, because I knew from experience that they would eventually correspond with a great sale. Today I hit the jackpot with Kern’s Nectar Juice, and I surely do not expect to run out of juice for a while.
publix meat
I bought a lot of meat at Publix this week, and since I skipped my weekly Aldi trip, I had to pay a little extra for the meat at Publix. I also bought milk, apples, lettuce and bread, which would have been much cheaper at Aldi, but to make up for it I had 3 x $5/$50 coupons to use.
