43 name brand items = $43.24
Kraft, Post, Betty Crocker, Maxwell House, Nature Valley, Tyson, etc., etc.
I was thrilled at my VICTORY!! I brought my booty home and headed back out to the 'real' grocery store with a good feeling that I could get meat, fruits and veggies for under $60 and have the satisfaction of knowing I could feed my family of 5 for a week and a half on roughly $100.
With Christmas coming, I could sock away my extra loot and really treat my kids...and my hubby, too, I guess!
Well, the "I only spent $43 at BB's so, I'll get extra yogurt, bottled water, meat, ice cream...." did me in. I left our Super Wal-Mart with $158 worth of groceries in my cart...rats!
Oh, well. I tried my best. Better luck next time.
