Shopping with the $5 Dinner Mom

This is it.

The bare basics.

Produce, milk, almond milk, eggs, delimeat, and more produce.

And some tortillas for the big little boys.




  • 1 dozen eggs – used “free item” store coupon

What do you do w/all your almond milk that you buy? I used it in pudding the other day & it didn’t set up …

Use less almond milk. Tastes great!

I feel better knowing that I’m not the only one that puts prices on my list. :)

I’m glad to see you posting the “manager’s special” sticker! People always look at me funny when they see all the stickers in my cart. The downside is that I can’t do self-checkout, but I save SO much money that way! I mean, $.39 for a loaf of bread or $.79 for a big bag of spinach is a bonus! Anything I can’t use right away gets frozen or cooked, so I win BIG!
