DH aunt passed away and he made the trip up to the Huntsville area for three days this past week.. some of the meals were on the road and clearly did NOT meet the rules for oct unprocessed but I am including them to keep the data true, other thing will be hard to figure out cost wise as they were “gifted” during the trip.

Yes, I know.. I know.. I should not have made the big old tuna casserole but DH does not like Tuna and I did not think about the fact that I would be eating it for many meals to get though it, and we had hubby home for the rest of the week and so we got busy a lot and that meant we also missed some meals.

Total for the week 152

Farmgal total for the week.  59.50

Farmgal Savings for the week 92.50 or 61 percent savings.

    So 452.09 to date – and that’s “retail” for two people? So times two if we’re figuring on a family of four……this is getting interesting. 😊
