Total= $26.22 plus tax

From Wal-Mart:
1 Green Leaf Lettuce- $1.78
2 (24 oz) Sour Cream- $1.27 each (went to a different Wal-Mart than I usually go to and it was 30 cents CHEAPER!)
Strawberries- $2.50
Bagels- 2 for $3.00

Total= $9.82 plus tax

From Bi-Lo:
2 Lasagna Noodles- 2 for $3.00

All the meals on my menu are made by me except the pop tarts that the children had on Monday.
Hopefully this is making sense to you guys as much as it is to me. If I need to explain more, let me know.

Remember also, I am using what I have in my pantry, fridge and freezer too.

I plan on posting some recipes soon.
Have a great day!

My Cup Runneth Over...


  1. I never thought about different WalMarts having different prices on the same item.....could this be true of all stores????
    The eggs were really cheap, especially considering how superior fresh, local eggs are. :)

  2. Wow - great shopping! Have you ever tried to make your own buttermilk? I've just started doing it. Here's a link if you're interested:

  3. This is great. I've said before if I didn't have to buy groceries we would have so much more money. What farmer's market do you go to?
