Week 1

Grocery shopping is done for the week, menu is planned.  We used our "eat out" for the week tonight, go figure.  It's Tuesday and already gone. :)  
Total Spent:  $54.12
Total Saved:  $101.49
Budget left: $105.88
 I will have to cut my budget the next few weeks as I am determined to stay under $160 for the month.  Smiths was having their case lot sale though and there were a few things I really wanted to get.  The boys LOVE canned grean beans, so I got a case  of that, tomato sauce, and ramen.  I was also excited to get 96% lean hamburger for $2.50 a lb.  I never see it under $3.00, so that was a great deal.  Some of the other random stuff you see pictured was free, or close to free.  Alas all of the candy, oust, visine drops, dr. pepper.
Here are some of the things I have stuff for and could use for main dishes on the menu this week:
Shepherd's Pie
Southwest Chicken
Cowboy Spuds
Chicken Broccoli Casserole
Orange Chicken

(And if any of you are wanting to try the grocery game, referring e-mail is tiff_nielson@hotmail.com)

Okay, how did you do that?! That's what I want to do! Your menu looks yummy and you got great stuff for a very good price! I already signed up for the grocery game, but I think it said you could add in an email after the fact, so I will add yours in. Anyway, do you just use the grocery game and the newspaper and coupons.com, or do you use more...teach me Tiffany!!! Great job!!!
