2 Don Julio tortillas - $2.70
6 loaves of bread - $10.14
Net OOP: $13.61
You probably notice there are 7 loaves in the picture. As I was getting ready to leave, the cashier asked me if I would like a FREE loaf of bread. Of course, I said yes! I'm still not sure why he offered, but heck I'll take it! Also, the loaf on the bottom right is missing the heel - I let my kids split it on the walk home :).
My next stop was Fred Meyer. I did this in 2 transactions because I wanted to finish up my MasterCard gift card I used part of here.
In the first transaction I got:
2 dozen eggs - $1.59 (these were B1G1Free)

One last stop - Walgreen's. I got:
2 Reynold's wrap aluminum foil - $1.78 (w/in ad coupon) (- 2 $1.00 off Reynold's wrap) = $.22 overage

I am now $.22 under budget. Not a bad haul considering I had less than $30.00 to spend! Woo hoo!
