It has been an insanely stressful week for us here in the Frugality Is Free family, and so I decided to splurge a little and pick up a Publix meal for the guys, so that I did not have to cook meat tonight. The kids like it, when I roast the chicken, but as a vegetarian I’ll admit that I detest having to deal with the insides of a whole chicken, plus it takes a long time to prepare and cook it. So, once in a blue moon I will splurge on a chicken family meal at Publix, which turns out to be a great deal.
You get 1 rotisserie chicken, 2 potato salads and 4 Hawaiian rolls for $12.99 – and sometimes it goes on sale at $10.49. In addition there is a $2 off coupon in the green advantage ad, when you buy the family meal and a Coca Cola soda, which means the soda is free.
Since I bought this meal, I also got my total before coupons over $20, which mean that at I could use my $3 off $30 Publix coupon for Recyclebank, and thereby get the price down even more.
