Weekly Grocery Wrap up - Mom gone Wild Edition!

Oh My Gosh! I think this sinus infection has started to eat into my brain and cause me to lose all control. Budget? What Budget? Apparently, I have NO budget!

There were some really good deals this week, and I couldn't stop myself. Sorry, still having technical problems with the camera so no picture. Here are the highlights:
