Total Spent: about $147, $13.40 left over
This seems like a lot compared to many of you, but please remember that we have 5 kids, 3 of which are pre-teen/teen and each competing in 2 different sports, they eat a TON! Not to mention the 2 year old who eats from sun up to sun down! then we have out little 4 year old that we are constantly trying to get to eat..... also our area does not have any stores that double coupons or offer a lot of promos (Save Mart does some, but not like Albertsons or Kroger).
