25 Dollar Grocery Challenge - spent $6.59

I accepted a challenge to feed our family of four (2 adults, 2 teenagers) for 25 dollars for a week.  Thanks to  Coupon Savvy in Cowlitz Co., I have a 25 dollar Kroger gift card.  Instead of just spending the 25 dollars for the week and using what I have already on hand, I am going to calculate the cost of whatever the food is whether I buy it this week or have it on hand.  I think that will make it a bit more accurate.  I will post what we eat and also post my shopping trips this week.  I will try to get most of the items with the gift card, but I find that if I am going to feed us for about $3.57 per day, I need to have the liberty to shop around for discounts at all the stores if I want.  Here is my shopping trip this morning.  I spent $6.59 for everything you see.  Luckily, I had some good coupons and got some free yogurt, free pickles, and free salad.  I am grateful that my family is having a great attitude.  I put a picture of the receipts in case you want to see just what I spent for what.
