2.69    Nancy's Plain Organic Yogurt
1.99    Omega Eggs
2.88    Butternut squash
1.00    Onions
3.34    Tomatoes - wow!  I would have skipped these if I realized how much they would cost!
1.59    Bananas
  .93    Oranges
2.99    Florida Gold Orange Juice
7.16    12 lbs. apples (two 3# Braeburn, two 3# pink lady at 1.79 each)

Total for Pictured items:  $27.56

Not pictured:  1 gallon of milk for 3.99, Organic Buttermilk for 99 cents, Organic Cottage cheese for 99 cents.

Grand Total $33.53

We have other food that will carry us through the week to have balanced meals.  I guess I will have to pull the frozen beets out of the freezer (gag) and some other frozen veggies this week even though we would rather have fresh!

How did your shopping trip go this week?  Any good deals?  Did you stay in your budget?  Link up and share!
