$50 Grocery Challenge - Spent $57.33

I thought I didn't even spend my $50 this week.  But, because of an ERROR on my part, I went over.  I added up my first trip to the store and Bountiful Baskets and got $29.34 and so I had the number $30 in my mind.  For some reason, I thought I had $30 to spend, not I spent $30 so I went and spent $30 more to make the $50 and realized that I had messed up and was over.  If I had known, I wouldn't have bought some of the things I did, but MY BAD!
First trip to the store:

Mini Cucumbers   1.69
Farm Eggs  3.99
3 pack tomatoes  50 cents
2 Granny Smith apples 1.03
Avocado  99 cents
Lemon 50 cents
3 Bananas  86 cents
Grape Tomatoes  1.29
Blueberries  11 oz.  1.99

Total  for this trip $12.84

Bountiful Baskets  $16.50

2nd trip to store:

Organic Apples  3.99
2 bags of reduced apples at 39 cents each
Organic Skim Milk  3.49
Stew Meat  1.54
Grass Fed Beef  1.75 and 1.66
Salmon Fillet  6.49
Mild Italian Sausage  2.07
Andouille Sausage  1.89
Organic Carrots- Two packages at 2.19 each

The carrots were advertised at a lower price than I paid and the salmon was supposed to be half that cost.  I didn't take the time to look at the receipt before I left the store because I was in a hurry.  Let that be a lesson.  Maybe I will post it on simple savings for today!

How did you do this week?  Did you stay in your budget or get some good deals?  Link up and share!
