Today’s Deals

Today was grocery/cvs shopping day and I got some awesome deals, including a unexpected deal! 

Typically when I grocery shop I keep my eyes on my list – not on the shelves.  I usually only go down the aisles that I need to go down, I have found that this keeps items that aren’t on my list out of my basket!  Today while at Publix (have I mentioned how much I love Publix?) I took a turn down the wrong aisle!  As I got to the end of the aisle, completely irritated that I was wasting time, I noticed a “in store special”  otherwise know as a “unadvertised special!”  The special was BOGOF on Minute Maid Juice Coolers – something that we are in need of (I use these in the boys lunches) – the “in store special” price came to $1.09 a box!!  As I piled some into my cart I thought “isn’t God a hoot?” He sent me down the “wrong” aisle just to bless me with a great deal!  I love that!

Another bonus this week is that we received a $5/$30 purchase at Publix yesterday in the mail!  Whoo Hoo, that makes my heart sing !  The $5 coupon is included in the total savings number.

Now onto my other shopping deals today:


The first stop was Ingles, a grocery store here in Georgia.  I have only been there once before because I have found their prices to be very high; however, this week they had a great sale on cubed steak that I just couldn’t pass up!  My next stop was CVS with a cashier that was more than 1/2 asleep!  My last stop was Publix 🙂  Here’s the breakdown:
