Super Savings Saturday - My $32 Budget

What a good week for deals!

Unfortunately, my camera is AWOL so I can't post a picture for you to admire.
Things are just so much more impressive when you have an accompanying photo.

Anyway, I spent $32.31 and got a TON of stuff! Whoo hoo! I had $25 for this week's grocery budget and $20 for next week in the envelope, so that means I have $12.69 for this next week. Yes, I can do it! Here's what we got this week:

Store #1: Store Total: $4.08
2 64 oz Store Brand 100% Apple Juice

Store #2: Store Total: $11.79
2 lbs 93% lean ground beef: $4.99
2 20oz Gold-n-Plump Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts: $6.99 - $0.75 - $0.75 = $5.49
2.27 lbs Bananas at $0.48/lb = $1.31
