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.

I'm hunting for an additional brand of Toilet Paper (TP). I'm also on a septic field and add a 'solids breakdown' additive each month.

I normally use Quilted Northern Extra Strong, but I had bought some Charmin at Wags with a RR that I couldn't figure out what to buy. I liked that. I've bought over the years Cottonelle, Scott 1000 Sheets, Scott Extra Soft, and the Greenwise TP at Publix. I wouldn't recommend ANY of those.

Anyone tried the Charmin Basic and what does it compare to? Obviously not as good as 'regular' Charmin...

my "go to" for TP is the 6-pack of "green" (recycled content) white cloud at walmart [walmart.com] for $4 (lower priced in-store) and then there is a $1.50 printable [couponfactory.com], which makes it only $2.50

they are supposedly triple rolls, they do last a long time and they are soft and 2-ply

worth a try for $2.50 unless you are just hooked on brand names

I wish there were 'try me' rolls of all TP. Just one roll to try, so you don't outlay a bunch of $$ just to try something. (new cereals ought to do this too).

I'm partial to Charmin Extra Strong - hubby likes Charmin Extra Soft. I'm not on septic and sometimes it takes 2 flushes to get the Extra tp down - no idea what it would do to septic.

Have there ever been low-dose aspirin deals at publix or even target?

I stopped going to cvs/wags because I was tired of the rolling nonsense and weak deals inbetween to make your life difficult.

But that made me use up my low-dose supply completely.

For those who shop Target & Publix, which place are you doing the Charmin & Bounty deals?

At Publix, we have the $2/1 PQ + either the $10/$50 Visa gc or the $10/$50 gas card

At Target, there is a $1/1 TQ and a $5gc back wyb 2 (I think).

There are also $1/1 MQ for Charmin and Bounty in 6/5RP. I've long ago given up on trying to buy toilet paper at $0.01/sf and since I really don't like Charmin or Bounty Basic, I think I'm going to get them at Target.

I'm not doing the Basic. I'm doing the regular Charmin 12ct double rolls & the Bounty big rolls 6ct. $5.99ea. I don't get RP - RP hates me. I've even emailed them no less than 12 times and they've put the RP in my mailbox once. ​

ETA: I don't really need either but the feel the need to use the $2/1 PQ, the $1/1 MQ, the CO51 & iBotta offers and the Savingstar rebates. OMG

I've never redeemed savingstar at Publix- does it work well? Savingstar plus the $10/50 gas card deal are enough to get me to Publix. This week on IG entertainment, I saw someone paying $1.84 including a $50 gift card and another person with a huge stack of $16/1 Tide.

And I thought the posts of the $2/1 Pq + $1/1 TQ + MQ were enough lol. Savingstar is a snap & upload pic at Publix. Haven't had any problems.

Also, dont forget the stocking spree rebate as well....

...and the free adult & child's movie ticket (must buy $30 in 1 trans, only Bounty counts for this, not Charmin)

I only bought $23.96 Mad

I'm looking at the box of Ritz crackers I bought this week to check the ingredients.

and at the bottom it says "made in mexico"

we're making crackers in mexico now and importing them? seriously? is there any fda supervision at all on that? what is the water source for baking (though to be fair, could have just as much lead in the usa)

Thank you for all the detailshughug Yes, definitely worth it! That week I only got 2 inserts of the PQ, so to finish out savingstar won't be so great, but the TQ, SS, Stocking Spree, gas card combo is still pretty awesome!

For movie tickets, text MOVIE to 87654. Can play every day and last year, I was able to win 2-3 tickets both on mine and my husband's phone. Taking the 6 of us to the movies is way too expensive, so I try hard to stay on top of movie ticket deals (not clearing peeliesEEK!).

ETA: Savings conspiring against me...no Target coupons in my paper that week.
