My Publix Trip - 5/6/11

My hubby did our shopping this morning. I dont usually post our trips, but I was kinda excited about this one. My goal was to get under $15. This order came out to $11 and some change. It would've been $6.50 ish, but I decided to splurge on some Eight O'clock coffee.

We got some good freebies:
  • 5 coffee mate creamers
  • Always product
  • Tampax product
  • Suave conditioner
  • 6 boxes of Crystal Light (they actually paid me 48 cents to buy them)
  • 2 boxes of Power of Fruit bars
Under $1:
  • 4 boxes of Edwards Single Desserts (55 cents each)
  • 6 bottles of John Frieda shampoo/conditioner (49 cents each)
  • 6 bags of Birdseye frozen veggies (under 50 cents each)
  • 4 bags of Pepperidge Farm Stone Baked Artisan Rolls (50 cents each)

For our anniversary a few years ago, we got the kids a Wii. We just got a few of the basic games. After a while, they were so bored, they didn't play it for months. We looked and looked and could not find any good, low priced games. So the dust collected on the wii.

Finally, I cashed out of my Mindfield surveys acccount into an Amazon gift card ($15) and started my search again. After a bit of seaching (and talking to my son - I don't play video games, so I dont know what they like), I found Pikmin for Wii on Best part, after my credits on Amazon, it was free, even the shipping.

We got the game yesterday, and the funny part is, my husband said "oh what a stupid game!" Well guess who's playing it right now, as we speak (or as I write), he is. Has been playing for about an hour. And the kids have hardly even played it. Nice!!!!!
