Publix: Real Life!

Sometimes real life gets in the way of savings--and this was one of those times. I have had some type of virus (or so we think) this past week, and while I can eat, my body isn't digesting much, and thus not absorbing much. So I'm left feeling awfully weak and tired--which is not good when you still have to go work and take care of family. So, my husband made a trip to Publix for me to pick up some electrolytes--and spent $20! Ugh, that hurt when I saw the receipt--but that's why we save, for moments like that. At least we got cheap yogurt and a decent price on cereal!

So this is what our recent Publix trips looked like:
