This post is sponsored by the “Stock Up” promotion at Publix. The opinions and text are all mine.
With the holiday season approaching, you never know when friends and family might decide to drop by to say an (often unexpected) hello! It happens quite frequently at “The Rogers Ranch,” aka our Boca Raton home. Make sure you’re always prepared for that spur-of-the-moment visit, dinner or last-minute houseguest by stocking up on the essentials!
We love a good Publix promotion…
My favorite local supermarket, Publix, has everything you need to prepare for the holiday season ahead. Whether it’s whipping up a quick appetizer, prepping a guest room or cooking a delicious meal, it pays to take advantage of the Stock Up promotion at Publix through 11/22/21.
Get ready for all of your holiday houseguests while sticking to your family budget! Simply pick up the 11/6/21 Extra Savings flyer in-store or visit Publix.com to see the complete list of product savings included in the promotion.
How we prepare for friends or family who visit unexpectedly…
Tip 1: Always have appetizers
As a self-proclaimed “hostess with the mostest”, I always make sure to have snacks on hand. You know, for those nights when “the kids want to play for a few extra minutes”? Or, family/friends “need to drop off something important at our house”?
One of my favorite SUPER EASY go-to appetizers is goat cheese with honey drizzled with zesty raspberry chipotle sauce. Add to it some nuts, raisins and fig & olive crackers by Lesley Stowe and you have yourself a fancy snack platter!
During this Publix promotion, customers can get $1.50 off Any 1 Lesley Stowe Crackers 5.3-oz. There are so many yummy flavors to choose from!
If you can’t locate the 11/6/21 Extra Savings flyer in the kiosk at your store’s entrance, simply ask customer service for it or access it directly on Publix.com here.
Tip 2: Get saucy when it comes to dinner
Looking for a group meal that’s economical to prepare, store ingredients for and is always a crowd-pleaser? How about fresh pasta and sauce!
If you suddenly need to host dinner for six (or more!), make sure you keep some Publix garlic bread in the freezer and plenty of dried pasta and sauce in your pantry. One of my favorites is actually on sale during the Publix Stock Up promotion! Get La Famiglia DelGrosso Pasta Sauce 15–26-oz (your choice) for only $4.99.
Look for the at-shelf signs located throughout the store which highlight the savings during the promotion. Bon Appetit!
Tip 3: Make your houseguests feel at home in YOUR home
I can’t live without my morning cup of joe and I know many houseguests feel the same way! I always make sure to have plenty of coffee (and tea) pods and creamer on hand at our coffee bar in the kitchen during the holiday season. We want our guests to feel comfortable and help themselves–even if they are last minute. 😉
If you want your coffee creamer to go the distance, be sure to stock up on Nestlé Coffee-Mate Creamer 64-oz (your choice-refrigerated) for only $5.50 during the Publix Stock Up promotion! It is one of my personal favorites–so tasty! Plus, the price can’t be beaten.
Tip 4: Keep it clean
Considering we’re still technically in a pandemic, I always want to ensure our family and any guests to our home stay healthy before, during and after their stay. Hand washing is always encouraged, but I think a nice personal touch is keeping hand sanitizer handy for all.
I usually drop a bottle on the nightstand when turning over our guest room. That way, they can use it during their stay. They can even take the hand sanitizer with them when they head out too. During this Publix promotion, you can snag Purell Hand Sanitizer 4–8-oz (your choice) for $2.39! Stocking stuffers anyone??
Tip 5: Be prepared so there’s less stress!
The last thing a mom needs during the holidays is more stress. Stock up on all of these essentials during the Publix Stock Up promotion and you’ll be prepared for any type of visitor this season!
