Our Atlanta trip

Doug had a family reunion in Georgia yesterday so we were down that way. I hinted that I'd like to stop by a few Publix stores to hunt for the elusive pet coupon book and the triathalon one. Plus...keep an eye out for any other good q's.

Boy. Am I glad I did! At the first Publix, the one near our friend's house, pet book was spotted...and snagged. :) They also had $3 off Publix pork wyb Kingsford Charcoal q's taped to the bags of charcoal. These look as though they were clipped from a flyer- so that was odd, but I snagged a few of those too. Also picked up a bunch of blinkies I had not previously seen.

Then the next day, we went to a different Publix to get a Sunday paper and some more yogurt. (free of course). I cruised the store and found more Kellogg's coupon peelies for $.75/1 (woohoo!! We don't get kellogg coupons in this area!) and also...the elusive "free eggs wyb 2 Kellogg's cereals". YAY! Stacked with my Kellogg q and the Food Lion Kellogg q I have- both expiring tomorrow, I will get two boxes of cereal and a dozen eggs for $.24

THEN hit up another Publix this morning on our way home and hit the tearpad motherload! AND!! I found a bunch of the Corona summer books with the Haas Avocado q's! Holy avocado! I need those so bad!! I was doing the happy dance all the way out to the car. I also found a ton of tearpad and blinkies.

for the record- I did not take all of any of the tearpad or peelies. I hate it when people do that.

Finally, a trip to Super Target to get some cheap corn! We don't have a Super Target anywhere near us and when I saw the ad, I had to stop in the one we passed.
20 ears of corn
Total oop: $2.02
(gotta LOVE that 2% food tax!! I am SO jealous!)


  1. Um, what were you doing up at 1:45am??? You're as crazy as I am.

    BTW, the "people" would like to see more pictures on your blog for those of us that are visual. LOL.


  2. lol! I know it- unfortunately my camera was lost. Doug finally found it behind the dog food bin. (yeah, I don't know either?).

    So then we recharged the batttery- and now it's all ready to go.

    I just find I don't have the energy to set it all out and take pictures once I get home from a long day and 45 minutes driving home with the whining kids and melting groceries b/c it's so HOT! :) Maybe I'll take the camera with me and take a pic of the cart before I check out? How's that?

  3. That's a good compromise. Take a picture of the cart and then take a picture of the cashier so that we can get to know them. I want to start profiling them on my blog. I think that would be fun.

  4. Funny you should mention that b/c I have been thinking I should take a pic of T and Ben for the blog, if they're ok with it. :) I did do some pics for you today when I got home. Enjoy it!!
