Publix 8/1

Still getting caught up on posting...wanted to share this trip since it was fairly decent in terms of savings...and I probably won't post another trip for a while.  The deals have become fewer and farther between unfortunately, thanks to shows like Extreme Couponing.  I remember this time last year when I would have 4 of the same coupon on frozen veggies and paid basically nothing for them all the time.  Now, I can't remember the last time I saw one of those come around...

The poor cashier missed my coupon that would've made the pens free and given me an extra .50...but I just let it go.  The poor lady was already having a rough enough day as it was.

I also want to focus more of my posts around living the greener life, and not just on my savings each week.  Any questions or suggestions on what I should post about?
