$25 grocery challenge week 1 (Jan 2-9)

This was an off week where my shopping does not accurately reflect what we really ate. Much of what I needed to buy was to replenish pantry items we had used up. I had a variety of food in the fridge from the previous week that needed to get finished up, so I was working with the extra plus a few items to complete meals.

Groceries:
suave 1.38
grape juice 1.18
