Grocery list for July26th

Well, i had a number of questions about my grocery list after posting about it on Facebook. I spent about $80 to feed our family for the week (for 5 of us).

So here is my list, and a slight breakdown of what i bought (I'm not including non-food items, or the stuff for our cat)

Wal-Mart
2 packages of fajita mix
total spent: $1.56
(crazy to go there for just this mix - but its the best stuff we've found!)


Save-A-Lot
1 package of frozen Broccoli
1 jar of pasta sauce
2 cans of cream of chicken soup
sour cream
corn meal
vanilla
1 package of pre-cooked bacon
1 package of chicken breasts
total spent: $11.28
(approx - i didn't count the kitty litter, which i cant remember if it was $4 or $5)


Wegmans (over 3 trips)
heavy cream
2 packages of whole wheat Tortillas
1 red bell pepper
1 head lettuce
1# of organic carrots
1 pint of grape tomatoes
1 huge container of sliced turkey
gallon of milk
high active yeast
6 bottles of weight watchers soda
lemonade
1 loaf bread
1 container of dough
1 bag of pre-shredded cheese
pepperoni
black olives
1 box cereal
1 bunch bananas
6 mini apples
total: $55.56

grand total: $68.40

that's not including the occasional ice cream treat out ($1 a kid) during the week... so by the time that's done, $80 is about right. I'd still like to get some caramel syrup for my frappe's - but i can wait till Friday :-D

This is for meals from Saturday (which was leftovers), up though this coming Friday (with some of the items for this upcoming weekend). You can check out my menu here.
