You can see from the photo that I also bought produce including tomatoes, cucumber, carrots, lots of oranges & mushrooms. I did not buy any meat today because there were no deals I wanted at the stores I shopped. Kroger has Tyson boneless skinless chicken breasts on sale for $1.99 starting today so I will pick up some of those later this week.
