I'm sorry for the delay in posting my Publix shop, but I have been super busy this week. In fact, I barely made it to the store before the sale ended. I didn't have an incredible shop (such as going into the negatives), but I am choosing to be optimistic and see this shop as an example to others. It proves that you CAN save lots of money and still NOT have to be extreme.

*Note: I bought more pasta than normal because this is considered my rockbottom price. It is also whole wheat and I am transitioning into this.
*Note: I also decided to stockpile on bread crumbs. I didn't have any in my pantry, so this is enough to last a LONG time!
*Note: We are limiting our bottled water intake, so I am hoping that by buying three cases, it will last us a while. I am only going to drink the bottled water when I am in the car, at the gym, or at tennis. I am desperately trying to train my body (my brain!) that the filtered water tastes the same.
*Note: My coffee stockpile was getting low, though not depleted. I like this coffee and feel it is a great deal for my family. I now have enough coffee to last about 9 months.
In my opinion, you have to buy what is best for your family. I bought what we needed now, replenished my stockpile, and started/ended a stockpile item. Since I didn't buy much fruit, I will go to Kroger and buy a fresh fruit tray on manager's special. Our Kroger marks the fruit trays down super cheap and it lasts us about a week.
