It’s a fact that not many people never use coupons or weekly ads but with a Publix store nearby you’d be shooting yourself in the foot if you didn’t take advantage of all the specials.
Use the Publix Store Locator to Find the Nearest One
By the way, use the link here to find Publix stores in your area. The Publix’s store hours are usually from seven in the morning all the way up till 10 o’clock or 11 o’clock at night. In my area I have two of them and one is open until 10 o’clock at night and the other doesn’t close their doors until 11 PM. It’s definitely not a 24 hour supermarket generally, but you’ll be hard-pressed to find the deals and discounts that you find in this grocery chain in other stores.
I usually do my shopping on a Sunday morning when there’s very little activity at the store. I enjoy waking up a little bit extra early, sometime around nine o’clock in the morning, so that I can buy some great stuff for breakfast as well as do my shopping for the week. I am one of those who shops every week because I know there are different deals and specials every week.
Find Publix Sales Easily By Knowing Your Store
One important thing to do when you’re shopping frugally, is to get accustomed to the Publix store layout. For example, in my hometown store that I always visit, it starts out with dairy products and other refrigerated items on the right. On the left there are all sorts of juices, apple sauces, et cetera. What I like to do is to bypass the cold section and just start with the juice section and work my
way up and down the aisles in accordance with my shopping list.
As I go through the isles of my Publix store, I generally end up near the bakery section and I start looking at the refrigerated items in the coolers at the end of the store. I usually end up with a few frozen pizzas that are on sale, some Ore Ida French fried potatoes our kids love, an assortment of frozen vegetables, and a few other items. After that, I quickly work my way right back to where I started in the refrigerated section where the dairy foods are located. Now, I don’t place any dairy foods in my cart at first because I like to take my time shopping for special deals. If I would’ve put the dairy products in there I would be fighting for time just to save their freshness.
You should develop some type of system at your own Publix store so that you can systematically go up and down the aisles without having to worry about time so that you can pick out the best discounts and deals while keeping all of your cold food fresh from possible spoilage.
