$50 Grocery Challenge: Spent $49.68

This week was one where I really didn't want to stick to my list or budget.  If it hadn't been for the grocery clerk in the store, I wouldn't have.  He saw me looking at the screen of how much I spent and asked if I wanted to take something off.  I told him that I was concerned I was going to go over my budget.  He said that he knows what it is like to be on a budget and helped me to make it work out.  So, thanks to him I stayed in my budget again.  I bought the following:

Garbanzo beans  3 at 69 cents each
Chicken broth   2 at 1.06 each
Lime  69 cents
Lemons  2 at 25 cents each
Green Chilies  68 cents
