Awesome Shopping Trip!

Okay, I just can't help but share my awesome shopping trip today. It totally pumped me up! I try to keep our grocery bill to about $160 a month including diapers, which comes about to about $40 a week. It was always doable, but now that I've started couponing and watching the sales, our pantry is super stocked and I get fun goodies like a 12 pack of Coke for free! Here's a picture of my loot today. My total ended up being $24.00 and $3 of that was Mother's Day cards that isn't included in my grocery budget. So, I have money left over to get a bag of frozen fruit at Costco for green smoothies and milk for Maddox later on in the week!

Included above:

6 boxes of cereal
TONS of bananas
12 pk of Coke
2 8 packs of bottled water
6 Power bars
4 lbs of strawberries
Loaf of bread
Dishwashing detergent
Dishwashing rinse (it was free)
Organic crackers
Can of garbonzo beans
1/2 gallon of silk soy milk

Wow, That is great shopping. Where do you get all the coupons from? We only have them in our Sunday papers, here.

So, that is a great deal - but what do you eat for dinner? There doesn't seem to be enough food to eat for a week! The only reason I ask is because I want to get our weekly grocery bill down - but can't figure out what to cut out.

Do you guys have a separate budget for eating out or something?
