What Did I buy Nov. 1st-8th Edition

Along with my Dillon's Mega 10 purchases and my cereal purchases at Hy-Vee I figured my family needed more to eat thss week than just Cheez-its, Chex Mix, and Cereal:) I did pick up a few other items at Dillons, Hy-Vee and Aldi this week. Here is the breakdown:

Mega 10 deals (see HERE)=$13.00
4lbs ground beef=$7 (used $1.50/5lb. purchase coupon=$5.50

Total=$19.50 including tax

12 boxes of Cereal (details HERE)=8.78 (and I got back 2 $6 catalinas to use on milk)
2 Gallons of Hy-vee Milk at 2.69/1=$5.38 (used $6 cat from cereal deal)=FREE!
5lb. bag of Russet Potatoes=.99
1lb. bag of baby carrots=.69
6 cans of Butter Kernal veggies=$2.00
2 boxes of Wheat Thins at 1.98/1=3.98 (used 2 $1/1 Wheat Thins coupon)=1.98 for both boxes!

Total OOP=$17.00 after tax and I still have a $6 catalina to use on milk!

Stuffing Mix=.89 (for a meal that is getting moved to next week)
2 bags of Garden salad at .50/1=$1
1 bag of egg noodles (for meal next week)=.99
4 tomatoes on the vine=.99
2lb.s of bananas=.93
Cooking Spray=1.29/1
2 Cumbers at .59/1=1.18
2 1lb. butter quarters at 1.39/1=2.78
1 1lb. imperial spread=.69
2lb. tub of red grapes=1.58
4 ct pkg. of pears=1.19
Season salt=1.46
Ranch dressing=1.15
1 bag of 6 sweet potatoes=1.59
Saltines (for next week dinner)=.89
bag of tortilla chips=.99
12 ct large eggs=.78/1


Total for the week=$59.50. This is higher than my "weekly" budget but I was able to do this since I have been under budget the past few weeks. Having the $$ extra allowed me to do the cereal deal at Hy-Vee and the Mega deal at Dillons where I was able to stock up on items I won't need for a while! I also picked up a few things at Aldi to have on hand for meals for next week in the event I don't make it to Aldi this coming week.

You can see my weekly dinner plan here! This week for breakfast we are having homemade pancakes, banana muffins and cereal and fruit. For lunch we are having leftovers, pb sandwiches and grilled cheese sandwiches. Lunch is usually served with veggies and fruit.
