This is ridiculous! I spent $8.11 yesterday at Winco then $14.31 today at Raley's.
2 bulk hoagie rolls .60
3 baker potatos .70
broccoli crowns 1.12
yellow onion .37
2 tomatoes, roma .57
1 carrot .11
panda puffs cereal 2.72
bag lays chips 1.98 (for work)
bag refund .6
Raleys (they are more expensive and I don't shop there much anymore. I intended only to get margarine and bread)
small round sour dough bread. 1.49
earth balance natural spread 3.99 (I usually get this a Trader Joes)
late july organic saltine crackers 3.19
peanut butter & company dark chocolate dreams peanutbutter 5.69
I can see some of where I go over. I don't like to buy regular saltines with the hydrogenated oil. I usually buy laura scudders natural peanut butter but this company's peanut butter is good. And I wanted the chocolate. *excuse* :(
I did cook lentils last evening with the carrot, onion and broccoli.

Teresa, we will definitely reach a point where the goal becomes unrealistic. I agree that you may want to consider kicking it up to $150 and giving yourself a break, if you can't stay under $125. Maybe, if you find yourself under $150, you can start trying to drop it by $5 a month or so, and put the extra aside for stockpiling when you find a deal that is just too good to pass up.
