Special Treats

Two weeks ago Publix had one pint Starbuck’s ice cream on sale BOGO. Heather and I dug through our coupon binders and came up with six Starbuck’s ice cream coupons: 3 were for $2 off, and 3 were for $1.50 off. That meant the ice cream averaged out to 10 cents a carton! Six coupons meant just enough to go around in our family, one per adult. I handed out a list of Starbuck’s ice cream flavors and asked everyone to note their favorite (or guess their favorite in case they had never actually eaten Starbuck’s ice cream before.)
Once at the store, I discovered Publix was completely out. No prob. I got a raincheck. Several days ago I was able to redeem the raincheck and get each person their very own carton in their favorite flavor. To keep things clear and fair, I wrote each name on their carton with a Sharpie marker.

I highly recommend the Caramel Macchiato!

  1. This just illustrates the advantages of two families living in one space. Lots of coupons and ideas to spare.
