In addition to most of the items above, I managed to buy two half gallons of diet green tea, a half gallon of skim milk, baby carrots, two boxes of low fat waffles, unsalted stick butter, 1 lb. of low fat turkey breast, two boxes of Cheerios, 1 box of Kashi cereal, a loaf of potato bread, a loaf of rye bread, a large container of vanilla yogurt, strawberries, a lime, and ranch dressing. Total cost at the grocery store: $87.41 and the lovely receipt from Giant even tells me that I saved $9.31 on these purchases. Yay!!
