Last week was an insane week at Publix. Check out my receipt:
Yup, you saw that correctly. I bought $81 in groceries for $9. Most of what I purchased were items to donate. Publix even paid me $.80/bottle to purchase body lotion. You’ve got to love that. I bought vitamins, chocolate chips and some body lotion for my house. Without coupons those items alone would have cost me well over $9 so everything I donated was essentially a bonus.
Because of the stellar week last week, I was able to donate 3 more grocery bags of food. Normally, I would have waited until I had collected more bags but I had stuffing and mashed potatoes so I wanted to make sure those items made it to the food bank before Thanksgiving. Yesterday Jack and I brought boxes of stuffing, boxes of mashed potatoes, cough drops, cookie mix, body lotion, cans of Campbells Soup and more (but I sadly can’t remember what as I am getting old) to the Lawrenceville Food Co-Op. It was another feel good moment for both Jack and me and we are looking forward to collecting more items to donate again soon.
If you coupon, I really recommend grabbing a few great deals weekly to donate. You’ll feel great! I promise!
