Publix groceries

I actually went Publix shopping yesterday, but I overestimated my energy level. I ran 3 miles at the track, did a mile on the rowing machine and then walked a mile to Publix with my little one. When I got to Publix I was so exhausted, that pulling the grocery cart and pushing the stroller was too much….but shopping had to be done, and somehow I even managed to figure out my coupons.

Let me tell you though, I fell asleep before 9 p.m. with my little one, and I missed my nightly writing session – slept the night through and woke up feeling guilty over not having written anything last night.

But at least I got my three mile run in yesterday, which eases my guilt.

  1. how do you get the winn dixie coupons?

    • Amy, I’ve signed up for a Winn Dixie card, and I’m a member of their baby club. That’s how I get the mailed coupons. Just go to their website and sign up.

  2. Hi there, I am from Canada and love reading your blogs, just thought I would share this, I went to one of our major grocery stores today, was going to purchase chicken breast but when I saw the price, I almost had a stroke. It was $26.91 for 4 breasts bone it, guess I will have to wait until they are on sale.

  3. The bank rate today was 70cents on the dollar, but the point is, this is our own Canadian chicken. We usually take a run down to Calsis every couple of months to stock up.
