Kay’s Reapings: Commissary & Publix (5/28)

Posted on: 05/29/2010

I got to thinking today…rather yesterday now ;)…that it would be great to go out and shop at a couple of stores to obtain some of the items we needed to start replacing some low to depleted stockpile items.

At one point, I thought that I’d just go to Publix and make a HUGE trip out of it, but in the back of my mind I kept thinking of the Commissary and some of the wonderful overage items they had available…in the end, I decided to embark on a journey to both stores, actually it turned in to two (2) Commissaries and one (1) Publix. Initially, I was going to go to a second Publix, however, while at the first Pubs my oldest daugther called the cell to inform me that my baby was crying, and although their Auntie was there with them, he wanted me…sighs…couldn’t let my babies down so I wrapped up my trip and headed home….but not before reaping all of the following…sometime this weekend, I may get back to Pubs and workout my diaper deals. Until then…

That’s amazing. I would love to see a breakdown especially for the commissary. Thanks for all you do. My hubby was ashamed about me using coupons, but now he always asks if I have a coupon.

Hello and welcome! I am a military spouse & mom of four boys and two girls, ages 1 to 10, oldest diagnosed with autism. We're located in the Charleston, SC area. My family and my faith are very important to me. Since I've started using coupons I have been able to save more money and become a better steward of my household. I hope to seed into the general public, and our military families, how to spend less and get more.

Get ready to take your grocery & household spending to a whole new level! Couponing is not only a means to seed but an avenue to harvest...both opportunities are endless & a joy to delight in.

I welcome feedback and comments! Thank you again!
