For those of you who are skeptical about couponing and eating healthy I'd say about 85% of the things I buy would be considered healthy. I did buy some turkey sausage, Lance sandwich crackers, Jimmy Deans breakfast sausage, lunch meat and granola bars filled with some questionable ingredients.
Here's a quick summary of the healthier items I brought home and prices if I can figured them out after coupons and sale.
15 boxes of Whole Wheat and Vegetable Pasta - .06 each
Clearance Organic apples (not mealy this time!) .43 per pound
Ground Turkey 1.79 per pound
Cottage Cheese 1.39
Resolve stain remover for clothes - .84
Kashi cereal .59 each
Greek yogurt .10 each
Yoplait Yo Plus -FREE
Chicken breasts 1.99 per pound
Denta Stix for Lilly - FREE plus overage
Razor and shaving cream for David .84 for both
Nature Valley granola bars (these have ingredients I don't feel too guilty about) $1 a box
Frozen vegetables - ranging from FREE on one trip to .45 each
Herbal tea 2.20
Shredded and block cheese
Whole wheat tortillas
Enough canned tomatoes for the next three months
Earth Fare had a great deal this month. Spend $15 and get a free natural chicken, mashed potatoes and organic carrots. Plus I had a coupon for a free bag of organic apples. My mom gave me some cash to buy organic blueberries and I bought two boxes of tea that had coupons hanging next to them to get to the $15 minimum and ended up only spending $8.50 out of pocket for $30.59 of food.
I made out like a bandit at Publix this month- I spent $52.72 over the course of the month and saved $188.10! Publix is where I get my great deals and I generally buy my basics at Kroger.
My mom came for a visit earlier in the month so we probably ate out a few more times than we normally would which made our food last longer. I have a stuffed freezer and pantry going into next month.
