Thursday morning is the time to go to the grocery store. It isn’t so busy, and everyone seems to be happy, smiling, and chatty. I made it through my shopping this this morning in record time, and Max hardly fussed when the bagger tried to push the cart. My grocery store exploits are well documented. (If you missed it, check out here, here, and here.) And I don’t want to brag, but I think I have the hang of this coupon/sale shopping thing. So I left Publix smiling today, but not just because of the smooth trip or because I saved a bundle. Instead, I was smiling because of all the food I was able to donate to the Lowcountry Food Bank through Publix’s Spring Food Drive. I donated any non-perishables I could purchase buy-one-get-one or at super discount because of sales or coupons. And by the end of my shopping trip, I had quite a haul of products to give, including several items on the Food Bank’s most needed list: peanut butter, oatmeal, canned tuna.
