Weekly Shopping Trip 8/7

So I was under budget this week by $0.09!  Woohoo.  It's hard to do nowadays.  Especially when you're trying to feed 2 people.  You will notice that I did not buy any meat (especially since they're not selling ground turkey at the moment) so you may think..."What does this chick actually eat for dinner?!"  Which is a good question.  Well you will see below that I bought double the amount of canned food needed for my homemade chili so when  I make chili tonight I will still have enough canned food to make it next time.  I plan on this chili lasting us 3-4 nights with a salad every night as well.  (I have frozen ground turkey that I will be using) Then I will use the tilipia I bought last week and make another meal out of that plus we do pizza every friday.  So that makes dinner for 6 nights this week and then probably on the 7th will be sandwiches.  They say that planning dinners for a month at a time is the best way to save money and that is what I am still trying to do and hopefully that'll give you some ideas of how to eat somewhat cheaply each week as well.  Okay so how did I do it?
