I went shopping tonight. Can't say the exact amount because I left the reciept in the car, but I think it was like $80. Of that, the most expensive purchase was the Scott toilet paper ($15+for a bundle). I'm happy to say that walmart carries it for the same price as Sam's club. That's nice so I don't have to stand in line at Sams.
About the ketchup, I found a jumbo bottle (unopened) in the cabinet. So, that purchase is delayed at least for awhile. Still would be interested in hearing if you guys have any cheap sources for Heinz ketchup.
I did splurge and get the kids a mix for their easy bake oven. Do any of you know if regular mixes and/or recipes can be adapted for use in the easy bake oven?
Other "big ticket"items included envelopes (which i'll be reimbursed for); a gallon of milk, and a large package of string cheese (kids like to snack on that). Other items were small, but it all adds up :-)
