OK, so I finally got around to lining up groceries for a pic. Mind you this was my second trip, the first one was a bigger pile and honestly I was exhausted by the time I got home so it just went straight to the cupboard and fridge. The first trip I spent $109 out of pocket and saved $367 (77%, Whoohoo!!) and got food storage supply amounts of Bounty and Downey, soup, fruit snacks, all kinds of yogurt, as well as all the Fiber One products my family will need to keep themselves regular for months :) This trip I saved 75%. I spent $60.50 oop, and saved a whopping $177.12. I got 4 packs of yogurt cups, 4 boxes of Gogurts (these are awesome frozen btw. Cut them in half, push them up and they make a great little snack, and are MUCH less messy this way), 2 boxes of organic whole grain granola, 3 more Fiber One pancake mixes, 4 Minute Maid OJ's, 7 Betty Crocker frostings (anyone needs cupcakes for a bake sale, let me know :), 4 Mega packs of Pampers (though I will have to make a trip to trade the sizes), 2 yoplait adult yogurts :), 6 - family size bags of Green Giant brocolli and cheese, and 2 Minute Maid Pomegranate Blueberry juices. Yeah, I love saving :)

Thank you for the responses on Caillou btw, good to know I'm not alone out there :)

Have a fabulous day everyone!!
