Earlier in the week, I went shopping with my teenage daughter and also bought a few snacks for Valentine's day.  I spent almost 25 percent of my grocery money and that made it so I couldn't get everything I wanted for the week.  It really makes a difference if I buy bread or get junk food on a budget of $50 per week. 
Not pictured, which totaled $12.13, were the following:
  .99    Eggs
1.00    Kettle Chips
  .69    1 pkg. reduced steak, 1 pkg. reduced stew meat w/ coupons
1.00    5 pkgs. kettle corn
1.00    (2) Reese's King size candy bars
3.00    Boca Burgers - chicken
4.45    Whole Wheat Bread at specialty shop

Total:  12.13  

Grand total:  $47.20
