Thread Details

The PUBLIX thread is IMHO the best grocery store thread around heart
Here's a little chat area for us all to share info, recipes, rant's, raves and whatever else we want without clogging up the regular weekly deals thread for PUBLIX. If we want to share super deals we find in other stores or whatnot that's ok too heart

I think we all are such a great family that it's a good to have our own special place Grouphug


You can post basically anything you like in here but let's keep deals info in the actual PUBLIX thread. All are welcome and basically no major rules except be kind and courteous of other's and treat each other with respect. Other than that let's all have some fun! Also you don't have to shop at PUBLIX to share in the chat or whatnot... we like everyone.

Dang! I forgot Monday is a "federal holiday". That's going to slow the coupon delivery system down! lol! Thanks for posting. Now I know that the mail will be slowed down for the week.

anybody know how long simply potatoes are good after the use by date? I baked a caserole with them and didn't realize that they had expired 10 days ago and I hate to waste it all Thanks

I've used them up to a month after expiration and had no issues. As long as they didn't smell bad or look bad (and I'm guessing they didn't since you didn't notice anything when you opened them), you should be fine!

I'm a terrible person to ask about expiration dates. I think many are way too conservative. Cereal dates, for example.

Speaking of cereal, never made it this weekend. Happy to read about everyone who got such excellent deals!

Hope everyone had a great weekend and for those who have off tomorrow, sleep an extra hour in for me Wink

Newspaper delivery frustration!

I get 12 papers a week, delivered to my sister's house (my house is too far out of the city to be guaranteed inserts, and from the few copies I've picked up locally, we get shafted frequently...so I have them sent to her instead...I get all the inserts, but there is a delay, since I don't get them until Mon night). Anyways, sis called me yesterday and told me there weren't any papers, so I promptly left a message for the Distribution Director that helped me with a smiliar problem months ago, and I also went on their website, double checked that my account was paid up (it is) and filed a complaint through the online form, selecting the option for redelivery.

The paper carrier called me this morning and left a message. Per his message, he had dropped them in the wrong driveway (the neighbors above my sis), and asked me what he needed to do. Apparently my request for redelivery through the website wasn’t enough of an indicator as to what he needed to do, so I called him back. Here’s a rundown of the convo:

Me: Hi, is this Sylvester? It’s…
Sylvester: (interrupting me) Hi Amy! I’m so sorry, I dropped your papers in the wrong driveway. Can you get them from your neighbor?
Me: (totally not the response I expected…) Uh…the neighbor isn’t home, and they aren’t in the driveway anymore.
S: (outraged) Why would anyone keep 12 papers they didn’t order? They don’t even subscribe to one. I can’t believe they took them. Why would they do that? Ok, I can bring you more tomorrow.
Me: No, I need them today.
S: What do you need 12 papers for anyways?
Me: Ummmm…I just like having 12. The point is that I need them today.
S: Oh. Um. Huh. I’ll have to make some calls…I’m at home, not the branch office. I’ll have to call you back.

That was a couple of hours ago…it was actually a lot longer conversation, with lots of exclamations from him of “why would they keep those papers?” and “tomorrow…I can get them to you tomorrow” and “can you ask the neighbor later?” and “I need to find your neighbor’s number so I can call them” and other such nonsense, but there’s the abridged version.

Seriously? He messed up. I request redelivery. He then calls me and puts the ball BACK in my court even though I have already requested redelivery. And then gets annoyed that I need them today and can't just get them from the neighbor? Yeah bud, I'm just purposely trying to aggravate you. Roll Eyes (Sarcastic) Oy vay.

Come on ryder, confess that you're a couponer! It's not a sin or something to be ashamed of.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I got wise and told my old paper guy (who left me high and dry the week after my knee surgery) about the $5 off $30 in Tuesdays paper by leaving a msg on his cell voice mail. He never called me back.

He called me back late last night and said there aren't any $5 off $30s, as I'm keeping them all.

When I asked if he even knew they were in the paper before my voice mail and he said no.

Facepalm Oh well, I have friends here that are mailing me some woot

Normally I do confess it. I was just so appalled and annoyed by the direction that the conversation had taken that I was at my breaking point.
He was sorry he messed up, but couldn't I just make do and live without or get them from the neighbor or whatever just so he didn't have to bother with me today? No way.

And the neighbors...well...my sis ain't exactly on good terms with them. The last time they had any dealings was because the neighbor's dog got out of their fence and scared the heck out of my sister's fiance's daughter (she's 8 and l-o-v-e-s dogs, but not that one any more...it's scary). It didn't bite her, but sure acted like it was about to. Things didn't go well...there was some yelling and cursing and such...so no, I'm not asking my sis to go over to the neighbor's and knock on the door. Besides, if I didn't order the paper and mysteriously had 12 show up in my driveway, I might keep one to read but would throw the rest away. Trash in their neighborhood gets picked up on Monday, so I'm assuming they are long gone now.


So your former paper dude is a couponer now? Interesting. Good work!! laugh out loud

He's delivered the paper for 25+ years, but never couponed a day in his life until I starting clipping Qs for him. I think I got him hooked.

Looks like you got him a little TOO hooked Teehee
Note to self...if you ever decide to try and bribe a paperperson for more inserts, clipped q's are not the way to go. Supply him with product only, and don't tell him how to get the deals. Roll
