I could have a whole blog on "Reasons I Love Publix," but I'm sure no one would read it. One of my favorite things about the grocery store is their mystery 1 cent coupon.
Here's how it works: Clip the coupon from the Sunday paper, bring it to the store on Sunday or Monday, and find the bin in the back of the store with the mystery item. Then buy that item for 1 cent! Exciting, right?
Now, I'm a smart girl. I know this is a marketing ploy to get me in the store. I know that the mystery item is probably an overstock that they're trying to get rid of. But I don't care. I used to do my shopping on Saturday, but now I go on Sunday. And I have to admit I'm disappointed if I miss out.
In recent weeks I've bought the following items for 1 cent: reusable grocery bag, 6-pack of bottled water, Publix-brand Oreos, case of Capri Sun. Come on, that's cool, right?
