My 6/15 Publix Trip – $65.82 for $12.65 or 81% Off

This morning I woke up and my eye was swollen shut so I had to swing by the urgent care center on my way to Publix (don't worry, hubby was driving).  The doctor put yellow dye in my eye and looked all around with a black light, then informed me that I had an eye infection, gave me some drops and sent me on my way.  I wasn't surprised that people in the store were all looking at me funny, but I didn't realize until I got back in the car that I had that yellow dye ALL OVER the right side of my face and I actually looked like I'd been beaten.  I'm so totally embarrassed, but I'm actually glad I didn't see it until after shopping because I can't get the dye off and I probably wouldn't have gone in if I'd have known how bad I looked. I would have been bummed to miss this deal too cuz I bought a bottom roast for $12.45, but ended up with a total bill of $12.65 – whoohoo!  Today I bought $65.82 worth of groceries for $12.65, or 81% off after coupons and $20 RR.  Here are the deals:

  1. Great job, as always! 🙂
    I’d like to know if you like the Magnum Ice Cream Bars. At that price, I sent for some q’s on line and I’m also getting at least 10 Ocean Spray juices. I LOVE the Blueberry one that is sweetened with Splenda! It is waist friendly! 😉

  2. You know I had to try the Magnums 🙂 Just had my first double chocolate one and it was fabulous! Kinda like a candy bar with ice cream in the middle so I’m not checking the calories until tomorrow, but as of right now they get two thumbs up!

  3. I hope you are feeling better!! You’re so dedicated to your readers that you’re shopping and posting with an infected eye!!

  4. Thank you Janet! You’re a sweetheart 🙂 Unfortunately I still look like I took a beating! Just hope I’m not scaring too many people.
