Shopping Trip

I am trying to start a new budget for the month of May. I really need to hunker down and watch my spending. So do you D!!! :) I am allowing $60 per week for food. This may sound like a lot to some, but we eat. A lot. We also drink a lot of milk. I decided to go ahead and do a bulk of my shopping today. I purchased all nonperishable goods (pantry and freezer items). I know that I will have to make quick trips for milk and produce. No biggie. I wanted to take a picture of my goods, but I was in a hurry and forgot. :(
Here is a rundown of my day:

2- $1.50 MQ off 2 Velveeta shells and cheese
$.75 off 2 Speed Stick deodorant
$1.00 off 2 Kraft Mac and Cheese crackers
Total: $25.05
I will have to go back to Walmart though. The deodorant did not ring up at $1.00 like is advertised. I didn't realize it until just now. :( Oh well. It happens.
