Spring signed up with PublixDirect, a service of Publix (which is a chain
of supermarkets in Florida and Georgia) whereby you select the groceries you

you normally buy to make a form of pre-canned shopping list. You can then
check items off that list, as well as add other items not on the list, and

you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
