No pic…this is really just for my totals:

Sam’s $92

Saved $25 or so…

I bought 2x 36 ct hershey bar boxes for our baby announcements– That was $36

The rest was spent on produce & bread.   Since Brad was going to be home all week after Silas was born we splurged and got lots of bagels, English muffins and other variety of breads to go with all the deli meat & cheese I had bought already.

Got the kids a 200ct box of flavor ice 😉

Walmart 7-10

Spent:  $68, but nearly half of that was misc. household items that seem to always be paid for out of  grocery $$

Savings:   Maybe $8 on all the fresh produce I bought.   I always seem to buy more produce when I shop at Walmart.   I guess b/c I am shopping to fill in the gaps and their prices on produce as a whole are reasonable, especially compared to Harris Teeter or Food Lion.

A little of Everything for our vacation! May 25, 2011

Filed under: Food Lion,Sam's,Uncategorized — queen620 @ 3:55 am

5-18-11 Sam’s $38…

3 large packs of deli meat – Ham, Turkey & Roast Beef 22oz each

1 large pack Provolone Cheese

Sounds expensive, but buying lunch meat meant we could easily pack picnic lunches while on vacation.  Sure we could have eaten Peanut Butter & Jelly for our picnics, but Brad isn’t so fond of PB& J and it was a real nice change in routine!
