    Brigette, is a girl after my own heart! She buys only edibles with her grocery money. I am a huge component of this, there are so many other places and ways to get those items cheaper than at the grocery store. However, there is that “rare” occasion where some items make the grade because they turn out to be free. Especially with a BOGO deal! Here’s this past week’s menu plan and grocery haul – along with prices I paid too, if anyone is interested: http://bit.ly/2yZCzAU
