$50 Grocery Challenge - Spent $49.91

We got some garden produce from a friend of ours.  They have a really nice garden each year.  I also canned some 3 bean salad yesterday from our own beans.  We got the eggs from our friends who have chickens for $2.00.  I also got some bulk celery seed to make the 3 bean salad that cost 27 cents, but it is not pictured.
I don't get why one picture worked and the other didn't!  I spend the other $47.64 on the groceries in this picture. The grand total was $49.91.

  3.74    Organic Chocolate chips - bulk
18.38  ( 5) grill packages of chicken
  2.98   (2) two pound packages of carrots
    .88    (2) Bell Peppers
   1.52    Tilamook sour cream
   2.48    Strawberry Yogurt Yoplait 32 oz.
   1.50    Bananas
   4.52    4 pack of Hidden Valley Ranch Powder
     .50    Garlic bulb
   1.22    Pinto Beans
     .73    Split Peas
     .94    Lentils

I was able to stock up on meat and beans since we didn't have to buy a lot of produce this month.  It is nice to have the extra food.

  1. I'm jealous of your delicious looking garden veggies! Oh, and I think the whole sideways picture thing should be your trademark or something ;) I mean, the owl is cute, but the pics are funny!
