I am in Nashville visiting family. The cold weather has canceled a few of our plans so my sister decided to spend this afternoon grocery shopping. She stopped by to say she was on the way to Publix, did I want to go with her? Did I want to go?!
I was practically jumping up and down. Here’s why:
1. My older sister, whom I never in my wildest dreams did I think would ever use coupons, has started couponing. It was so fun to watch. It is clear she is becoming hooked.
2.All I ever hear is how amazing Publix is. I have never been and I just wanted to see for myself.
For the most part it lived up to all the hype.
The store was clean and bright, the people were friendly.
There were fun little ads with Publix coupons in them right as you walk in. At publix you can stack store and manufacturer’s coupons. Also, this publix doubled coupons $.50 or less.
The Buy One Get One Free items. Oh the BOGO. They were everywhere, and much to my sister’s credit she had coupons to use on most of them.
There were several blinkie machines. In fact I found one that paired with a sale got us $.49 32oz. cans to tomatoes. Not too shabby.
So now I am sitting here wondering what will it take to get a Publix to Knoxville? (No, I am not giving up my love for Kroger, I’m just saying a Publix would make my coupon life grand.)
