Publix Trip: 02-04-2012

This week, I was wanting to take advantage of Publix's [in ad] deal. The deal is that if you spend $100 (this is before coupons so it's very easy to do), you get a $10 Publix gift card. I made a list, did the math, and headed to Publix. Once there, my now-three-year old (oh my goodness, he's grown so fast!) had the biggest meltdown! Now, of course Publix employees (being awesome, and caring people ) offered him balloons, books, and crayons. Justin, however, was not having any of it. Long story short, we made three trips that day to Publix before finally getting all this! By the time I was finally able to grocery shop in peace, I was exhausted! Driving to and from Publix while dealing with 2 big meltdowns could wear even  Superwoman out. As a result, I ended up getting a frustrated to the point that I was no longer interested in the gift card. Later on I ended up regretting not getting it since I bought almost $90 worth. Maybe next time! This is all I bought (Note: Luckily, my Publix doubles MQ up to $0.50 AND accepts Target as a competitor):
