Publix Opens!

Ok, so maybe this is not blog worthy, or even mentionable to some people, but a Publix opened right off our exit and I am so excited. Why? First of all I love Publix. I dont care if they are more expensive. They have far better produce and meat than Walmart and I HATE running into walmart for one item. And second of all, it is on our direct route home so those one little items we need to grab for dinner or what not are a lot more convenient.

So on opening day I really wanted to go and check out the deals. Matt thought this was really weird of me, and I guess that just proves how boring and domesticated I am, but I went for a few minutes after work on opening day. They had balloons outside. It was very enticing.

Honestly I did not have nearly the time I wanted to spend that day, but I did go back yesterday and had a great laugh.

As I said, I love Publix. I am also all about people who are able to work by all means working if they would like. Well I have not been feeling 100% lately and had a large amount of groceries. I was really wanting to take advantage of the little car service they provide so they could unload the cart. Normally I do not worry about it but they want to help, right?

So I get my cart fully loaded and this little 90 year old man with about 2 teeth (seriously) asks very politely if he could help me with my groceries. I took a look at him and realized he probably could not lift a gallon of milk so I told him thank you and I was fine. So I walked my cart to the car... and he slowly followed me. I thought he was collecting carts or something. Nope, he wanted to help little ole me. I was appreciative of course and he was a sweet old man but I think there may be a better job for him. He stood by my cart while I loaded it all into the van and every now and then would hand me a bag and say "here's your bread". (nothing heavy of course). I found myself smiling the entire time because it was just so cute and yet so pointless. Bless him.

For some reason I just thought it was funny. But did I mention I love Publix? :)

I love Publix too, and we have one right by our house. Do you ask about the penny item? Every Sunday and Monday they have the penny item. I also love that on their 'buy one get one free deals' you don't even have to get 2. You can get 1 for the discounted price.

I am with you on being so excited about it opening. I definitely can't do all my shopping there, but the other day when it was raining and I had Isaac with me there was no way I was going to venture into Wal-Mart! I have seriously been counting down the days for it to open. Ahhh....the exciting life of a SAHM!

Oh it's blogworthy all right for us locals. I've been waiting for a Publix over here ever since we moved into this neighborhood, so I was thrilled to see it FINALLY happen.

Whenever we finally get back on dual-income again I plan on pumping pretty much all our grocery money into the place.

There is a site that would probably interest all of you. I, too, love Publix. I love their produce and meat selections, but being on a limited budget makes it hard to shop there. Eddie & I found this site called "The Grocery Game" and it's based on a stockpiling mindset. You are combining Publix specials with coupons to get some VERY large discounts. We have signed up for this and saved $30 on our last $100 trip. They also have other stores like Winn Dixie, CVS, Walgreen, etc.

P.S. - They've also got a great message board where people post deals they found. I recently found fuzzy Crocs for the girls for$6/pair (normally $30).
