Another chance to be a fangirl over Publix -- gotta love a grocery special that encourages shoppers to focus on the perimeter of the store. That's where all the healthiest items hang out.
Starting April 24, shop the perimeter of Publix to and load up your cart with fresh produce and proteins. I always start in the produce section, then make my way up and down the aisles for the extras while finishing up in the meat and dairy sections and finally frozen. (I am an organized FIEND when grocery shopping.)
When you purchase participating products, you can save on store-brand items such as bagged salad, chicken breasts, eggs and fruit. And before you head out, visit www.freshsavingsevent.com to download and print.
Savings on fresh foods are only available through May 8.
And if you haven't tried Publix's digital coupons and you have a smartphone, you're missing out on a really simple and cool way to get extra deals. You don't even have to bring your phone with you -- all you do is punch in your phone number when you check out and it'll automatically deduct the coupons you "clip." (Find out more about that HERE.)
And here's the best part -- I'm giving away a $25 Publix giftcard (go spend it on something healthy and tasty).
My favorite thing in the produce section right now are those little mangos, which are usually a buck apiece. They're great because the pit inside is really small and they're pretty easy to peel. A bowl of mango mixed with Greek yogurt is a lovely thing.
What's your favorite perimeter item? Let me know in the comments below by 5 p.m. SATURDAY, APRIL 20 and I'll choose a winner.
Disclosure: The information and prize were provided by General Mills and Publix through MyBlogSpark. I was also given a giftcard and I bought kale -- lots and lots of kale.
