There were some good prices on produce this week - I picked up the items below, mostly by price-matching stores that are fairly far from home. I also got some rice flour ($2.98), so I could make a gluten-free recipe for a night's supper. The lime was .25, the hot dogs were .50 per package, grapefruit .48, tomatoes .23, cabbage, .66, bell pepper .48, zucchini .55, broccoli .37, pineapple $1 and lettuce .88 cents.
|Wal-Mart with price-matches - $8.88|
I picked up a bag of tortilla chips at Dollar tree, (for a dollar) because I wanted to try them and see if they are good. I like them fine. They are not certified gluten free, but I can eat them. That will make the gf corn chips last longer. I didn't take a photo, but hey, it's a bag of tortilla chips - you get the idea, right?
Toward the end of the week, there were some amazing coupons for non-dairy milk - check it out!
|half gallons almond milk - .99 each after coupon, rice milk .04 moneymaker each after coupon. Total $1.90|
At Safeway we saved 82% after sales and coupons. The mayo was .99 each after sale coupon, green tea .49 after sale and coupon, tp averaged .29 each after sale and coupon...and then tax brought it to $4.75 total. Not bad...not bad at all!
|$4.75 total at Safeway|
We were in town for some other things and stopped by King Sooper to get a free yogurt we had loaded to our shopper card. I picked up the mints and lemons from the markdown shelf - .79 for the mints and .99 for all three lemons. The yogurt was free.

Finally (finally!) we stopped at Sprouts to take advantage of a sale on gluten free items. The pasta was 1.50, tamari was $2 per bottle and the pizza crust mix was 2.39. It is enough to make two 12 inch pizzas, so we'll just use it for our GF family member. Yogurt raisins were .77 - that is not all of them, because we had already eaten some. Daughter and Hubby also got a little chocolate honeycomb candy - .66, which did not make it to photo time.
|Sprouts Market - $9.38|
Total spent this week: $26.69
Total spent for the month: $131.18
