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.

It's snowing outside. So pretty.

I have soup in the crockpot and Mocha Brownies (BS Thread Wiki - from PGF, only modified with pecans and half sugar/half splenda) in the oven. ETA: First time I've ever used my "perfect brownie pan". I guess I'll see if it stuck or not in a few minutes. Didn't stick, but, they all aren't the same size. The middle row is larger than the two sides. Slick though the you get all pieces that have 4 corners (I'm a corner junkie).

I hope everyone is safe this weekend (particularly the VA/WV/MD and DelMarVa.)

ETA2: Brownies were good, but very thin. Maybe I'll have to double the recipe next time. How else can you get 50/50 Splenda/Sugar brownies, but make them from scratch. I bought Pillsbury brownie mix to donate last week (35ยข a box after BOGO and $1/2 Tearpad MQ). I can't make them from scratch for that price.

I'm trying to come up with a gas card deal too maybe working in the free rotisserie chicken deal but not much luck. I considered $50 of charmin but still haven't convinced myself that $42 ($51-10/50-(4)$0.25) is worth it for 13 packs plus 4 chicken. Publix sales have been so uninspiring lately that even my husband noticed and asked me if I had abandoned couponing. Their prices are just so high lately too. I wonder what publix does with short dated meat; Winn Dixie and Target put it on sale but I've never seen that at Publix.

That winter storms looks awful and I hope everyone stays safe and warm. Our winter has been nonexistent although the rain has been nonstop today and it's supposed to dip down to the 40s Sunday.

MsAttitude once told us that's where "Market Ground Beef" comes from. They grind steaks, roasts, and stuff up and make it into patties and lbs on foam trays.

Someone years ago posted that the reason Publix doesn't sell Markdown meat is that someone claimed they got sick from it. shake head

it's also snowing here

which is impossible but actually happening

haven't seen snow fall here in more than two decades

not sticking to anything which is a shame in that it would look pretty but I think people would die trying to drive in it so maybe better off

Winn-Dixie thread has long been abandoned.
Funny that I'm the last one that posted there (bringing a Q notification) and I don't have WD within 100 miles of me.

Visions of what the Publix thread will be without an ad, unless folks support it.

I finally have a reliable computer at home! We got a laptop for Christmas and we didn't have it a week before we had to take it back to Dell for repairs. I hope it stays working from now on.

I hope to finish the matchups before the start of the ad on Wednesday but please bear with me as now I have basketball practice with someone every night and these are busy weeks for my husband so I'm flying solo for all the kids/household/cooking/homework tasks. Aldi has been taking 90% of my grocery money lately and haven't done a Publix shop since the beginning of the year. I do hope to pick up some LaCroix this week.

Every morning I promise myself that I will go to bed by 10 and here it is 11:15, as usual, and still up - anyone else with this problem?

I feel guilty people are working so hard on matchups when there are so many blogs that do it now too

I mean I like reading multiple sources in case I miss something on one or the other but still, feels like putting people to work

You are right about other blogs but I do the match ups here because this is really my favorite site which I use 95% of the time. I'm not fond of the one voice in blogs and IG is fun and useful for CVS and target clearance hunting but there's little opportunity for follow up. I've realized that a lot of the big IG pages aren't even that familiar with the nuances of the stores and just go big. Besides there's quite a bit of shady practices going on with some of them.

I'm sorry, I didn't mean to come off as complaining about doing them. I just didn't want people to think that I just blow it off for no reason.

Now, if this thread were to completely end, can someone PM me a good forum (although I would prefer it wouldn't come to that).

My thoughts exactly!! I have Lupus and Fibro, therefore am unreliable as to being able to get out of bed or being able to type at all, otherwise I'd be more than willing to commit to putting in the ad every week.
