I ended up with a very expensive Publix trip today, because my Publix store actually had the Kimberley Clark coupon booklet and mail-in-rebate “Start Your Year Out With Big Savings” in stock. I had a $10 off $100 Doris coupon that I had brought with me, just in case they had the coupon booklets with the rebate, and since I had a few dollars to get to $100 before coupons I added in some very expensive cheese as a special treat.
My kids and my husband are all lactose intolerant, so when lactose free milk goes on sale I stock up big time, and today was one of those days. With the help of coupons, I was able to get 1/2 gallon down to $1.50, where the regular price is $3.99.
It definitely wasn’t the best deals trip that I have ever done, but I purchased what my family needed, so I am happy with my savings.
