My Shopping Trip: Publix Ending 11/17

This week I picked up a few items that I didn't have coupons for and some items that cost more out-of-pocket. My total was a little higher than normal due to this! I usually spend a consistent $30 or less each week for a ton of items at Publix but every now and then I spend a little more...besides I deserve to splurge a little here and there right?

This shopping trip was done with tissues in-hand! I came down with some wonderful sinus issues over the weekend. I still have yet to determine if it's allergies or a cold...we shall see over the next few days!

Once I was ready to check out I told the cashier that I was sick and that I had some hand sanitizer for anyone who touched the stuff that I had touched (just in case it wasn't allergies). Turns out that she had come down with similar symptoms while at work and I just so happened to have some extra OTC medicine that I shared with her! We laughed as we both cringed each time an item was scanned...the beep was horrendous to the both of us! Gotta love it...but shopping continues, dinners still need to be cooked and people still have to go to work...we learn to deal with it! This is why I came prepared for germ control! I even made the bagger use hand sanitizer after he helped put the bags in my car! Again...just in case!

Due to the pounding headache coming back I missed out on about $10 in savings. I didn't realize this until I got ready to break the trip down for you. I won't worry about it...I get so many things for free each week and if I don't catch it while I'm at the store I generally just write it off! I forgot to use my $5/$25 coupon along with many other coupons and let's not mention the stuff that I didn't get...because I was ready to go! LOL

I was feeling pretty bad at the end of the shopping trip and my mind was so scattered due to a head ache! Lost out of $13 worth of savings...it's ok though! I save so much money each week there anyways! I didn't want to make a special trip back to the store just to redeem my coupons!

Next time you go shopping, you should take your receipt and coupons by the cust svc counter. Our Publix will refund you the money for the coupons. And it doesn't have to be the same day. I LOVE PUBLIX and I can tell you do too! :)
