This week I did two quick runs to Publix, because we are running out of orange juice very quickly with three boys home for the summer. The first trip was, when I was out with the boys, and I decided to splurge on an ice cream treat for them. For $0.75 I was able to get each of them a perfectly sized kid Magnum ice cream, and the leftovers we gave to a Publix employee on break.
