Super - $33.62 Grocery Trip

Our weekend has been super crazy - long story that I'll tell later - and I barely managed to get to the store this weekend!  It was necessary because we have company for part of this week, our children have their birthday and we have 3 different activities we're supposed to bring food to! Yikes.

I ran to the store very late Saturday night - at almost 11 pm (which is when our grocery stores close around here). Fortunately, we didn't need a whole lot so I was able to get in and out quickly!  Then quickly put things away and off to bed I went.  My photo taking skills have been less than stellar lately and I still have to find the charger for the camera anyway, so maybe it's better that I didn't take a photo!

We have plenty of meat in the freezers still and a few vegetables and fruits left over from last week so I was focusing on more fruit and a few staples to round out our menu.

Here's what we got:

Store #1:
Butter Kernel Canned Corn 3 @ $0.49 = $1.47
Butter Kernel Canned Cut Green Beans 3 @ 0.49 = $1.47
4.92lbs Braeburn Apples @ $0.88/lb = $4.33
