Super Savings Saturday - Spent $63.35

We're still at the no-picture edition - sigh.  I really do need to get that camera battery replaced. Or figure out how to take tolerable photos with my iPod. :)

We had some "extra" money left after buying groceries last week ($25 + change) so we bought ahead some sausage for our camping trip later this summer and some bacon as well.  Yum.  I also took advantage of the Kellogg's deal (8/$20) and received coupons for a free gallon of milk and free dozen eggs on a future visit.  Milk runs anywhere from $1.99-$5.00/gallon here and eggs run about $1.50, so that's a savings of at least $3.50 on a future visit to the store!  Plus, since the milk coupon is good up to $3.50, I can buy the Kemps brand and save the top for our kids' school!  I'm hoping to do a "Pantry Challenge" month in August and really take stock of things around the house here. I guess in the meantime, since this month is rather crazy, I'm not being quite as careful as I could be with our grocery shopping as I could be.

Okay, enough about that. Here's what we bought:
