Publix Penny Item: 8/9 & 10

This week’s Publix Penny Item is…
Publix Brand Frozen Pizza

Remember, you can get one penny item for every $10 you spend (before coupons). One item per transaction. Some stores will let you break up your shopping into multiple transactions to get multiple Penny Items. This is good for August 9 & 10, 2009. Florida stores do not participate, but often have their own in-store weekend specials; inquire at customer service. Publix reserves the right to change the Penny Item if they choose, so don’t wait until Monday night if this is an item you really want!

Back to School Deals: 8/2-8/8

Here are the TOP deals (I try to highlight only the freebies and penny items) that I’ve found so far this week. I’ll keep updating as I learn of more!
ALSO – TN Tax Free Days are 8/7-8/9, so you may want to plan your shopping accordingly.

8×10.5″ Filler Paper, 120 sheet (Limit 5 total per customer)

When I got my 3 boxes of crayons for a penny last night, I also received a $5/$25 purchase at Payless good through September! I’m going to save this for their BOGO sale to get Kariss some new tap and ballet shoes.
They also have a number of $1 and $2 items that you can see HERE, but most of them are things we’ve seen for free already, so I don’t think they’re worth listing unless you really need them!

There’s also a $10/$50 purchase coupon in the circular if you’re looking to buy some bigger ticket items.

2 Prong or Basic Folders

12″ Wood Ruler (Limit 3)

Office Max #2 Pencils (10-Pack) – Limit 3

Go to to print out your coupon for a free pastry of your choice with any coffee or handcrafted beverage purchase (from open to 10:30am) on Tuesday, July 21 (at participating Starbucks). They’ve recently revamped some of their pastries so that they’re “good for you” (no artificial flavors, no dyes, no trans-fat, etc), but the Lemon Loaf is still my favorite!!!
