Hi! I'm Colleen in Florida. I live within a mile of two Publixes, one at each end of the main street out of my neighborhood! So, this is my store of choice. They have the best Buy-one-get-one-free sales.
My strategy is to shop from the sales ad that comes in the mail on Wednesdays (sometimes with a store coupon off the total!), make a menu for the week, and bring a list.
I decided a few weeks ago I need to bring a calculator, too. They have so many deals that are hard to resist.
