I think I may have set some sort of record in my grocery shopping today. I went to six stores–which is very out of character since I rarely go to more than three at a time! However, I only had a short to-do list today and I got it done right after lunch. So my husband sent me out to go shopping on my own and told me to just take my time and enjoy myself. So I did!
Each of the stores ended up being out of some of the things I was hoping to buy, but I was still able to get some great deals. Here are the groceries I ended up buying:
And here are the different store transaction details:

4 boxes of Rice Milk marked down to $0.99 each
1 box alphabet noodles (for alphabet mac & cheese that we’re making for a school project)
Total with tax: $11.71 (I can’t seem to find my receipt, but I’m pretty certain this is what the total was.)

I stopped by Dollar Tree hoping to find some Nature’s Own bread. They were all out, but I picked up some fun activities for the children to do this week and for when we travel to Dallas later in the week.
