A few weeks ago I won a free Carvel coupon at I Heart Publix. The coupon arrived just in time for my husband’s birthday celebration, and so yesterday I went to pick it up together with a few other post-hurricane deals, since I had not shopped last week’s ad. I also picked up some candy for my husband’s students, and a birthday steak.



Then today Bellamy Blue went on the bike to Publix to shop this week’s deals, and amazingly we found free popcicles. We filled up the bike basket, and then I raced as fast as I could up against the wind before the popcicles. Our ALDI cooler bag fis perfectly in the bike basket, plus it ads more space on top, and I had a frozen bottle of water to keep the popsicles cool. When we finally made it home, this half-frozen bottle was just what I needed especially since our ride back  includes several hills.


Our freezer is now full between a great chicken deal a ALDI, affordable beef a Publix and lots and lots of ice cream and popsicles. I sure hope we don’t get another hurricane. Our small freezer above the fridge actually did so well that despite two days of power outages with only a brief return of power, we still had frozen bottles of water and chicken in the freezer. We even returned to find a box of fruit popcicles tha had not melted. It was time to eat them, but they still had their shape and everything.
