I have been such a "bad blogger" lately-I have to apologize! Things have been so crazy lately and I feel like I am running non stop!! Anyhoo-this is not a pity post, I wanted to share with you some of the deals available at Publix this week!

First...what is FREE! The Milk bone dog treats are bogo this week, BUT there was a coupon (not this past Sunday but the one before) for Bogo on the Milk bone dog treats. I was unsure of how Publix would feel about me using a bogo coupon with a bogo deal (meaning I would get the ONE that I was "paying for" taken off my bill since I was using the manufacturer BOGO coupon), so I asked the manager before I started shopping. TIP...if you are unsure ASK!! The manager said "well, we are going to get our money from the manufacturer regardless of what you pay-so if you are getting something for free....well then good for you!" He also said "if the cashier gives you and problem just tell them that I said it would be fine". Well, the cashier did question it, so I told her what the manager had said, she of course asked him anyway (as if I were lying :) and he confirmed it. If I had not asked the manager first, the cashier probably would have just told me that it could not be done, so ALWAYS ASK the manager when in doubt-do not count on the cashier to know the store's policies! Anyhoo, if you have that coupon, USE it this week at Publix!! If you happen to shop at a different Publix than I do (Trinity), then I suggest asking the manager of that particular store first.

There was a coupon in THIS Sunday's paper for a FREE can of "Purina ONE wholesome" dog food-I found that Publix was well stocked, so you should have no problem using that coupon there. Even if you do not have a dog...give it to someone who DOES or even take it to your local animal is FREE! Believe it or not, that seems to be the biggest hurdle I have while taking people out as a "personal shopper". You'd be amazed at how many people have to stop and "think" about getting a product that they do not use, or are unsure of whether or not the "kids will eat it" (rotel tomatoes) before they will buy it, even it is 100% FREE!!

So Today, on my trip to Publix I got 6 boxes (I did not want to wipe them all out!) of dog treats, 12 cans of the dog food and 2 boxes of Juicy Juice drink boxes (only cause I had to have them, I paid $2.49 for 2) and my total was $4.38 (since you have to pay taxes on dog food)...saving $41.63!.

For the church I bought 6 boxes of "Quaker oatmeal to go" bars and my total was $6.24 (saving $12.87).
