Well, this week has been a roller coaster for us, and Sassy's milk allergy. We had a food challenge and you can read the details HERE.
They opened up a Pathmark in our area. I have checked them out. They claim they are cheaper than Giant and Wegman's however, they are not on all products. So I ran in and got a couple of items that were on sale and then headed to Giant for the rest. Check out my totals and total saved. I really did well this week.

I saved with coupons and sale items a total of $51.83! Wow does that make me feel good
Total out of pocket is 112.27! I had a budget this week of $100 so I went a little over that, I know exactly were I spent it though, on the chicken and manager's specials meat. However, all that food is enough to feed us for 11 meals, so I should be good again for a couple of weeks.

Last minute addition
I just got off the phone with Sassy's allergist and we need to pull her off of Milk for the rest of the week. (The saga continues). So I am going to have to make a run out to the store tonight and pick up some soy milk and soy cheese to get us through till the weekend. So that adds about another $10 to my total above.
