$50 Weekly Grocery Challenge: Spent $49.60

I was a little embarrassed at the cash register today when I had to skip buying 2 things since I didn't want to go over the $50. I came a little close as you can see, but still stayed in my limit. I guess that's what I should expect when I go to the store twice with no list and just put things in the cart. It also didn't help that it was lunch time and I was hungry. I should have skipped the chips that were on sale, but everything else was healthy. I wanted some organic cottage cheese and organic feta cheese, but couldn't swing it this week after all. I have plenty of food to make it through the week and also stocked up on some pumpkin.
