Super Savings Saturday - $18.50 Grocery Budget

Last week, I mentioned how I had $12 and change for groceries this week. Well, I had a pleasant surprise when I counted the change in my "groceries" envelope! I had enough change plus a wayward $1 that was floating around in my purse that I had $18.50 for groceries this week! Whoo hoo!
So, we got everything in the picture above (yes, I did find my camera last week - it was hiding in the car!).
Store #1:
Two Gallons of Store Brand Skim Milk: $1.98 each
5 lbs Russet Potatoes: $1.99
1 lb Strawberries: BOGO $3.49
Store #2:
4lb Navel Oranges: $2.50
Bananas: $0.39/lb = $1.01
Bagged Spinach: $2.49
1 Dozen large Store Brand Eggs: $1.58
1 Can Store Brand Diced Tomatoes: $0.55
Total Spent: $17.57
Not bad if I do say so myself!
Next week is stock up week through with our $40/wk budget! We're running out of a few higher priced items but for this week, we will get through with this just fine. Check back Monday to see what we're eating.
