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.

Hi Peeps,

Anyone have any RC for this week's sale? I sure could use a few. I have been totally laid up since Friday with a banged up ankle and foot. Since I know you'll ask, I'll just tell ya what happened.

Short Version: The hubs was teaching me to ride his dirt bike. I failed. Biker

Longer Version: I was doing great, did some laps on it, was having a great time driving SLOW (promise, I am no daredevil!). Then I went to give it a little gas and hit the throttle a tiny bit too hard, which of course made the bike lurch a little bit. So instead of clamping down on the clutch with my left hand, I panicked and clamped down with my right hand, which is the throttle. I did the equivalent of stomping on the accelerator in a car.

Soooooo of course the bike immediately stood straight up into a wheelie, me still on board for a split second, then flipped over backwards. I landed on my butt and right elbow, the bike landed on my right foot & ankle. It swelled horribly, and hurt SO bad. But it is not broken, or even sprained. Just really, really bruised and swollen. And I am on crutches until I can hobble on it again.


On the flip side, did you know that walking on crutches burns some serious calories? Like nearly 400 an hour? Crazy.

I went to Publix on Sat. with my kids to grab a few things. I refuse to drive a rascal....I just can't bring myself to do it.laugh out loud So they pushed the cart with my purse & q's, and I crutched around. That was fun. I was pouring sweat by the time I got to the frozen food section. Gross!

Needless to say, everything I do seems to take about twice as long as it usually does, and realize that I have a handful of q's that I will not get to before this sale ends. Frown

Soooo, if anyone is able to pick up an RC or 2, I sure would be appreciative. I am looking for Fresh Express, OM selects lunch meat (any), Hidden Valley, Vlasic & Dove chocolate. drool I only want to buy one or two BOGO deals of each.

I will be absolutely elated if anyone could procure ANY of the aforementioned RC's. I might even do a jig on my good foot!
I tried too but everything was in stock at my store and they are a stickler about RC's.

in the last two weeks I have been in Publix once, to get half and half.
Last night I was low on it again and thought well maybe I should see what they have.....
I got what I needed, I was kind of hoping for a RC or two so I could shop later ( Just not into it lately)
shelves stocked to the max ( quite odd for a wednesday night)
Then it dawned on me, the sales have been so pathetic lately no one is buying anything.
and now here I sit another week....nothing to buy.
I hate to admit this, but Walmart has seen me quite a bit lately.
Even WAGS....
but Publix....my store of stores has been nothing but a disappointment lately

Same here. Actually, since the SAL coupons have been gone, a lot of my shopping motivation has dwindled.

I've been using up all the stockpile stuff. It's crazy what I had in the pantry and freezer that I totally forgot about! So other than some veggies from the farmers market to finish off meals, I don't really shop. I did find a local place that does chicken breast for $1.69/lb woot I love finding small business owners and supporting them Smilie

The way I see it
every life is a pile of good things and bad things.
The good things don't always soften the bad things
but vice versa
the bad things don't necessarily spoil the good things
and make them unimportant

Speaking of half and half, I went looking for more Land O' Lakes yesterday (MQ and PQ makes it cheaper than Publix brand for now) and my store was out - no big surprise, since it's nearing the end of the YAB, but they were out of ALL half and half - no LOL, no store brand, no pints or quarts or half-gallons. Confused Good thing I still have some flavored creamers from the Target dairy clearance a few weeks ago.

I don't go to WM all that much, but stopped in this morning to price match Kroger's $1 Diet Pepsi 2L (-$.55 MQs). The lone cashier asked me out of curiosity, why do people price match at WM instead of just going to Kroger and buying it there? I wanted to say, because of Kroger's convoluted sales and arbitrary new rules, that you have to buy 6 to get the $1 price but can only use 5 like coupons per transaction, that it's just easier to go to WM and get however many I want and not be hassled. But I just said something about, oh, WM was more convenient. Sad that it's now easier to coupon shop for me at WM than Kroger, though I generally try not to do it in either place unless I'm running low on my 2L's!

The reason I always put them here instead of the deals thread is that they aren't applicable to everyone, much like the Winn Dixie, Food Lion and so forth competitor Qs.

*****HOT DEAL ALERT*****
The Enjoy The City promo just got even better. Now through Monday, every order of 20 or more books will be doubled automatically!!! At 5/$25, that means you'll pay $100 for 40 books...which equals $800 off groceries at Publix Or WD.

Reps are back...for now. Stick Out Tongue I owe loads of gratitude to everyone that got me where I am! Read the *NEW* CVS FAQ and post your questions there. Let's keep the deal threads deal-related, please.
Would it kill you to read the wiki? Or to read the thread? All the experts got to where they are by reading...you can too.

according to the email it ends Monday 5/21 at midnight CST.
No code listed in the email. Plus they still have the every 10th order being doubled!

Have a question about TT - anyone else have consistantly ripped SS's?

At what point does it double - I have put 20 in the cart and applied the code but nothing has doubled as of going to the shipping address page.

I thought you may find this as interesting as I do

Huffington Post [huffingtonpost.com] article on JCPenneys posted losses when they abandoned coupons
