With a plethora of decent coupons and sales, we got more than I expected we'd be able to with this week's $25.
We paid $15.29 on 2 bags of tortilla chips, grapes, clementines, heavy cream and cheddar cheese.
We spent another $4.16 on 2 avocados, one (more) bag of tortilla chips (we tend to go through a lot), and carrots.
Later, we spent $.79 on bananas. I bought some last week thinking we'd make banana cream pie, but the bananas disappeared into little girls' bellies.
I still have just enough to buy 2 gallons of milk with a 2/$4.88 coupon! I think we'll make more cheese out of it. Ok, we're really .12 over, but I think it's pretty darn close.
[We didn't end up getting the milk, because we still had some, so we still made it under $25 with more bananas, - still need to make the pie - garlic, and lasagna noodles. Our toddler didn't feel well though, so we did buy some grapes which made us exactly $2 over. I know we're slightly over, but the grapes were worth it for a sick babe].
