Over Budget This Week

Technically. But it looks like this will get me 2 weeks, with one run for milk.

1st Stop: Hy-Vee
2 Dannon Drinkables $3.00
3 Hyvee lt. sour creams .88x3
4 Gen Mills Cereals at $1.68/each- 2 1/2 coupons= 1.18 each

1 orange marmalade 1.74
2 Wavy Lays chips BOGO 3.99
1 Orville Redenbacher @ $1.67 (couldn't get the coupon to print.. oh well)
1 Family size take and bake cheese pizza for the boys tomorrow $7.00
2 hyvee tortillas @ $1.59
1 dole celery .59
1 bag dole salad mix .97
1 bag coleslaw mix .97
1 red pepper .88
bag of red grapes 1.99
Total $33.79

dole mini carrots .97
Total 17.09

3rd Stop Bag n Save-
4 Old El Paso Taco Shells .99 each - 1/2, and 1.10/2= .50 each
petite sirloin 8.85
2 mac and cheese .25 each
3 birds eye chopped spinach .99 each - 1/3 coupon
4 dr. pepper 12 packs $12- $1 store coupon = $11
2 loaves Pep Farm 100% whole wheat bread $1.09 each
2 bottles sauve shampoo @ $1 each minus .50/2 coupon= .75 each
Total- $28.00

Grand Total
$78.88 plus $10.50 hubby spent at Aldi on 3 milks, 1 honey, and 1 bag of bananas
which brings me to $89.38

This puts me over by $29.38, so that will leave me just $30 for next week but that should be easy. With all the stock ups we've done, I don't think we'll need anything but milk next week.

Well, one thing you might consider, too, is that if you ORDERED pizza tomorrow, you'd spend a lot more than what you spent on the take & bake.

My HyVee had the Dannon Drinkables tossed in a bin (nowhere near expiration) for $2 each, with $1 peelies on them. The kids are thrilled to have them! I figured easy breakfasts or snacks for my mom and/or hubby while I'm in the hospital next week. Due to buying easy to cook stuff for them while I'm not here and recovering, I'm a lot more over-budget than you are!!! :-)
