On top of that because I spent so darn much I got .10 off each gallon of gas I buy on my next fill up. hjy

I know that I spent a ton of money but I don't feel one once of guilt for it. My husband thought it was great (he wouldn't care if I spent $500 a week on groceries as long as we had food to eat in the house) and we are stocked up on a bunch of stuff. I was surprised to find that I spent about $27 on produce- wow, that stuff really adds up. I also wanted to stock up a bit on the chicken breast- we are almost out of the uber cheap Perfect Portions that I got over the summer and chicken breast is a must in my house. What we also must have are string cheese, yogurt, wheat bread, pears, Rice Krispies and bottled water (our water tastes bad so I will not drink it and I  will not make my kids drink it- I have also decided that since my other dog was put down that our survivng dog should get bottled water; who knows what kind of crap is in the town water and I don't want this dog to get sick).

So I spent a lot but I got a lot. There are foods that I want my kids to eat that cost a lot but I feel like it is worth it. If I buy cheap crappy food then the kids will eat cheap crappy food. If my son loves string cheese and yogurt then I will pay whatever I have to for them because I would rather him eat those for a snack than eat fruit snacks.

Lets hope though that I have gotten the shop till you drop thing out of my system and that next week I keep it under $75.
