We have not done any grocery shopping for two weeks, but I figured that we could keep it going as long as we had orange juice, fruit , milk, egg and bread. Well, we are now out of almost everything, and our fruit bowl is looking a bit lonely as well. However, an ALDI trip will have to wait until next week, as it is a bit of a drive. This left Publix, and although I love Publix’ BOGO deals and coupon policies, we rarely buy our staples there, as the price on fruit, veggies, milk and egg are much higher than at ALDI.
Still, with four growing kids in the family grocery shopping had to be done, and so I got a little bit of our basics and the regular Publix deals to tie us over until next week. Don’t get me wrong, the kids would not be starving, even if I had postponed grocery shopping for another week, as we still have lots of food in the house thanks to all the great coupon deals. However, our family has a very difficult time going without fresh Publix orange juice.
As an extra bonus, I found cheap hot wheels cars for the kids. With three boys, hot wheel cars are perfect stocking stuffers.
