Our $81 grocery trip + what's for eats this week!

We only shopped at Walmart this week, and I was honestly surprised at how little we spent for how much we bought!

Here's what we purchased:
  • 5 lbs. Russet potatoes
  • Organic eggs
  • Garlic bread
  • 2 green peppers
  • Sour cream
  • Gallon of organic milk
  • Bananas
  • 2 packages of mushrooms
  • Cream cheese
  • Carrots
  • 2 lbs. of butter (check your local Walmart - I got 2 lbs. for $5!)
  • Ground cumin
  • 2 bags of tortilla chips
  • Fritos
  • Clementines
  • Cheddar cheese
  • Wheat Thin crackers
  • 2 cans of chili
  • Powdered sugar
  • Rotini noodles
  • Butternut squash
  • Package of chicken breasts
  • Package of beef
Not only was I buying groceries for ourselves for the week, but I also bought groceries to make a casserole and a dessert for a family, groceries to make 4 dozen cookies for a cookie exchange, and groceries for my mama group meeting (the cream cheese, chili and chips are just for this purpose).

Here's what is on our menu for this week:

Dinner out (one of Jason's mystery shopping assignments, so dinner is free!)
Mama group night (I'll be eating at mama group and Jason and Bug will eat something from the pantry, like mac and cheese or noodles with red sauce)
Veggie beef stroganoff
Homemade chicken nuggets, baked potatoes and roasted butternut squash
Hot dogs, French fries and canned corn
Creamy veggie soup and bread
Penne and garlic bread
