Hy-Vee Trip 4/30/11...$3.60!

Hy-Vee Trip 4/30/11...$3.60
I took a quick trip to Hy-Vee & ALDI, today, to grab some free ketchup and some great prices on produce. I was holding back a bit on buying much because I wanted to at least stick pretty close to the grocery budget I've been challenging myself to.  I think I've gone a hair over budget this month...but, still did pretty well.  I thought it was worth while to go a little over budget in order to get some nice (low-priced) produce for my family.  I was tempted by some beer & pop at Hy-Vee, too, but had some trouble justifying going over budget for those, today.

Here's what I chose to buy at Hy-Vee today:
2-Heinz Ketchup, 40 oz, $1.99 each
+ used two $2/1 coupons
= both FREE

1-Red seedless grapes, 2.02 lbs. @ $0.99/lb.
= $2.00

4-Jazz apples, 1.62 lbs. @ $0.99/lb.
= $1.60

Total: $3.60 to subtract from my $200/mo. grocery budget
