January $200 Grocery Challenge-Dillons Shopping Trip

I went and completed my first shopping trip, calculator in hand, for my $200 Grocery Challenge that is underway. I had to run to the store the other day to grab some fruit (apples and bananas) a loaf of bread, a gallon of milk and a package of bagels. That cost me $12.27. I guess I didn't take a picture of it:(
I then went to Dillons last night to do my shopping trip for our Weekly Meal Plan next week, grab some bargains and a few extras for snacks, etc.
The above picture cost me $45.41. I was able to get all of the potato packages for FREE, all the cereal for FREE, and the fajita seasoning for FREE! Other highlights were the salad for $.79 and the sausage for $1.00. They also had a great deal on the Campbells soups with in-store sales and coupons that were in the paper last Sunday, so I stocked up! I did have to put a few things back and go over a little on the budget I was keeping in my head to get my Diet Dr. Pepper, but I figured my sanity was well worth the extra $4.00 this week!

So, the total for the week's shopping trips cost me : $57.68 I saved 56% at Dillons!!
I have $142.32 left for the month! I feel pretty good so far about our attempts at sticking to a budget and still being able to eat healthy meals and not eating Peanut Butter and Jelly all week!
