Shopping at Publix… the Frugal Floridians way!!

Today was the first time I got out to go for a big shopping trip in quite a while… between the move and working full time now I wanted to make sure and run in before the ad ended for my local Publix this week. I ran in with a handwritten list based on the ad that matched up to the coupons that I had and a folder full of some great coupons I printed from the Target coupon website. Here’s a quick rundown on what I was able to get.. please excuse the lack of a pic!
