It was another week and time to do a little shopping.
We are still stocking up on school lunch supplies, but I think we are getting pretty close on having what we need for awhile.
But then my kids are like small garbage disposals – so it may only last two weeks.

Monthly Total: $316.48
As you can tell by my total – I will be over this month. Part of that is due to having a few extra dollars from last month left and part of that is giving myself an extra $100 to stock up on kid’s lunch stuff this month.
Best Deals are the Truvia and the Healthy Choice Greek Yogurt. I plan on hitting Hy-Vee at least two more times for the Truvia because it is an amazing deal.
And Costco has a coupon for the Ziploc Bags making the 100 count bags only $1.25 each. And that is a BARGAIN.
Surprises? My Hy-Vee had their Thin Sliced Turkey Breast on close-out for $1.50 for 9 oz. It was a little higher than I like to pay for lunchmeat, but it also means I’m completely stocked up for several months and that peace of mind is worth something.
