Grocery Cart Round Up

Another week on budget, OH YEAH ($50 grocery/$10 household). I still have to buy one more soy milk for the week. I know it may seem silly but often Dillons has it marked down on Friday, so I thought I'd try my luck then. I'm holding out hope that they'll have two Silk Soy Milks marked down so I can use a coupon for them. That would be the ultimate deal. Head on over to Grocery Cart Challenge to see how others did this week.
Here's what my $43.30 bought this week.



Dillons-
Gallon Skim Milk 2.99 (It was cheaper at Aldi this week, bummer.)
(2) Soy Milk 2.49 each
Campbell's Soup-free with coupon
Tortellini-3.39
(2) Cranberry Jello-.25 each
Cheese-3.89
Brown Sugar 1.00
Cucumbers 1.58
Avocado-1.00
Pork Chops-4.42
Mini Oreos-1.00 (Saving for Kansas Day next week)
Plain Yogurt .69

Aldi
1/2 Gallon Milk 1.69
Ketchup 1.15
Honey 3.79
Bananas 1.63
Corn Tortillas 1.19
Frozen Corn .95
Iceburg Lettuce .99
Hamburger Buns .85
Flour Tortillas .99
Romaine Lettuce 1.99

Walgreens-use gift card, paid nothing out of pocket
2 jars Skippy Peanut Butter (3.00)
2 pkgs Chocolate Covered Macadamia Nuts (1.00)


Household items $8.00


Dillons:
Diapers 7.00 (I was a little bummed that my cellfire coupon for the diapers didn't work. It was still a good price, plus I can get a $1.00 back from Caregiver's marketplace, once I buy one more package.)
3 pkgs Cottonelle 1.00 (use two .50 coupons)

Walgreens

Dawn (.50, nothing OOP)

I sure wish we still had Dillon's up here. I don't know of a place that doubles coupons. I'm almost tempted to drive out of town for a good deal on some toilet paper, lol!
