Here is what we got on our second grocery trip this weekend
2 1/2 gallons of generic OJ
1 Tropicana OJ (free)
1 frozen Wanchai Ferry dinner
3 boxes of Barilla pasta
1 Earthgrains 100$ whole wheat Thin Buns
3 small cans of Hunts tomato sauce
1 can of generic almonds
1 can of generic black beans
2 boxes of Frosted Flakes (1 was free)
5 Quaker snacks
1 loaf of Sara Lee whole wheat white bread (free)
1 tube of Sunsweet Ones
5 packages of Ramen
1 box of Tornados
2 packages Hillshire Farms lunch meat
1 tub of Smart Balance sour cream
2 Glade candles (1 was free)
5 bags of Kraft cheese
1 package of tortillas
1 5 lb bag of potatoes
1.62 lbs of bananas
My total came in at just under $40. With yesterday's purchase I did go a little over, but the good news is that I was under last week by about $10. (I never had to make another stop for milk.) I guess that means we break even for the two weeks. The other GREAT news is that I also earned $8 in bounce back dollars from the Quaker and Glade purchases. Yay! I will be needing them next week for sure! I think we'll be looking at that empty fridge again by Friday.
We'll be eating very simply this week. I'm planning on making some orange muffins for breakfast -- maybe a double batch. We'll be gone both tomorrow and Monday night for dinner, and we'll probably go out to eat on Monday afternoon to celebrate having an extra day off as a family this week. Other than that, I'm guessing we'll be getting back to the basics with meals like grilled
cheese, baked potatoes, french toast and homemade hashbrowns, spaghetti, quesadillas, etc.
