Publix: End of (Italian) Days

I took a trip over to Publix late on Wednesday, to catch the very end of the Italian Days sale.  I had done really well the previous week, having visited three times (see here and here for details on two of the trips).  The second week wasn't nearly as exciting, though.

I did want to use two $1.00 off peelies that I found when I bought Ronzoni Quick Cook packages the week before - wish there had been more of them!  And I wanted to try the Kellogg's Crunchy Nut cereal - there were $1.00 off coupons, which when combined with the BOGO sale made the cereal just under $1.00 per package.  I was happy to discover that there was an O-shaped version of the cereal.  My kids loved it, though it turned the milk orangish-brown (maybe they liked that?).

And I was very excited about the Pepperidge Farm bread deal.  It was BOGO last week, and there was also a coupon in the Healthy Beginnings booklet for $1.50 off produce when you bought one loaf of Pepperidge Farm bread.  Free or cheap produce, woohoo!  (The booklet was available in-store a few weeks ago - wish I had gotten more, but I was trying to be nice to the other shoppers.)

I also bought 20 cans of tomato sauce.  Now, with 12 cans bought last week, I didn't really need them.  But they were 8¢ each after coupon, plus I was able to get two loaves of bread for free as well.  And, I'm planning on donating all of the tomato sauce.  See my new monthly challenge coming up soon!
