(Bought this so I could get the Penny-Item coupon. Some Publix stores don't need the coupon, but my store is starting to enforce the "need coupon" rule. I got lucky last week because my next-door neighbors were out of town for a few days and asked me to pick up their paper--in other words, free coupon!)
- Publix 2% Milk, Half-Gallon, $2.09
- Publix Apple Cider Vinegar, 64 oz bottle, $2.59
- Boar's Head Lower Sodium Ham, 1/2 lb, $5.03

(Plus another $3 off $30 or more coupon)

There were some great deals at Publix today; this is the most "BOGO" shopping I've done in a while. Stocked up on Pam as I can't ever seem to match up sales and coupons with that at the same time. Got 3 today for less than the normal price of one! And I just ran out of sponges last night, so the O-Cel-O sale was great timing. :)

What were some of your best deals at Publix this week?
