Grand total for all of the trips: $49.87 (I almost got bananas, but had the clerk take them off because I thought I might go over. I am glad I did or I would have gone over!)
I know the food I bought this week couldn't feed us balanced meals, but we have lots of frozen veggies and fruits that need to be used. If I keep buying fresh, then I won't use them. So, I am taking some time off and using what needs to be eaten and stocking up instead on chicken and spices that I can use in the future.
