Yes, an extravaganza it was!
I arrived home from TX to a nearly bare fridge! So after a nice long afternoon-post-travel-recovery nap, I dashed off to Walmart. I scanned the local ads and circled a few items that were “price match worthy”, including $1 broccoli, $1.49/bunch asparagus, $1.28 canteloupe and $1.99 BIG box of Raisin Bran (after coupon).
Despite my price matching efforts and using more than 20 coupons, my total still came out just over $100 Y’all. I’m not worried yet, but my first 2 trips to Walmart have both been over $100! This is a bit of a shock to my system after weeks and months of spending $60-$80 a week! It will get better. It will!
Perhaps, it was that Hubs surprised/shocked me/tried to scare me to death by showing up at Walmart after work as I was finishing up my trip. It was on his way home and wanted to help me out/see me “in action!” He grabbed a few boxes of granola bars, then another box of oatmeal (despite the fact that we are fully stockpiled!), a few cases of V8 (on clearance and I had a Q!), and some of the “uber expensive” granola that he loves!
After this week’s extravaganza, I’m hoping that next week will be a quick trip for produce and milk!
