We made our third grocery stop of the week, and I was really happy to not go over budget by more than a dollar and change! Usually going to three stores is a one way ticket for me to go over budget, but I think I did pretty good!
Here is what I got --
1 bag of generic dried apricots
1 case of generic bottled water (free)
4 boxes of macaroni and cheese (Although I think I only got 3! Hard to tell in my picture!)
2 4 packs of Musselman's Healthy Picks applesauce
2 boxes of Nutri-Grain bars
2 Hormel refrigerated dinners
2 packages of Kraft singles
4 bags of cranberries
My pre-tax total was $19 and change. I saved about $8.75 with coupons. Unfortunately, I don't know how much I saved by purchasing sale items.
I was really excited to find cranberries for $.50 a bag again. I found them right after Christmas in the produce section, and I cleaned them out. This time, I found them frozen with the fruit. Once again, I cleaned them out. I have a really great stash of frozen cranberries in the fridge now. I need to make some cranberry almond bars and pumpkin cranberry muffins some time soon. Yum!
Considering my attachment to the Daniel fast this week, I don't have a detailed menu at all. Too hard to think about that food! I will be eating fruits, veggies, whole grain pasta and nuts. The rest of the family will be enjoying things that I won't be cooking -- Hormel entrees, frozen pizza and mac and cheese. They'll miss some of my yummy cooking, but I bet they won't mind too much!
