Under $40

I got all these groceries for under forty dollars. Can you freakin' believe it? It's kind-of a rush - crazy or not. I got over a hundred dollars in groceries an I only paid $38.63. ALmost everything was a name brand. Except for the gallon of apple juice was Safeway brand & the organic pasta was Safeway's Organic brand (but I like their organic brand), so it's all good. I also think my cashier was slightly generous with the coupons. I think she gave me an additional $1 off. I wasn't watching exactly how she did the coupons because I was pre-occupied with Baker calling re: my baby screaming at him and not going to sleep. And I heard her screaming on the phone - that scared me. (Side note: she doesn't normally scream, and hardly ever crys . . . except with daddy in the evenings). So sad. Any how, I'll have to watch closely next time. At least this cashier knew what she was doing and didn't think that double coupons were "just information."
Here's my loot:

2 lbs. red grapes,

6 bananas,

3 pears,

2 Tree Top 100% fresh pressed apple juice (not from concentrate),

1/2 gallon of Tropicanan OJ with no pulp + calcium,

1/2 gallon of Very Vanilla Kids Soymilk,

6 Tillamook yogurts,

Tropicana Pure Valencia with Mango (SO YUMMY),

1 gallon of apple juice,

2 Progresso New England Clam Chowder,

2 Rosarita Chile & Lime Refried Beans,

1 lb. Decaf Millstone Coffee,

2 boxes of Kelloggs Frosted Mini Wheats,

1.87 lbs Pork loin boneless Roast,

1 lb of stew beef,

1 pkg. of All Natural Farmland Honey Ham lunch meat,

Lucerne spreadable butter,

4 cans of tomato soup,

4pk Delmonte diced pears,

1 pkg. Organic Fusilli pasta,

2 pkg. Organic Spaghetti, &

2 pkgs. of Nestle Tollhouse cookie dough
