$50 Grocery Challenge - Spent $48.69
I just realized that they charged me almost twice as much as the shelf price for the cranberry juice. I hate it when you find that out after you are home. The total kept me still in my budget so I didn't bother to look. I was busy bagging my groceries. That will teach me a lesson for the future to be more careful and save the bagging until the groceries are paid for.
I ended up spending money on a lot of ingredients for a white bean chili for a friend that is sick. It wasn't on my menu, but I thought she would like it.
