I picked up a gallon of milk, a head of lettuce, an avocado and a rutabaga (which, to my knowledge, I've never tried before).
Total amount spent out of pocket on groceries this week: $5.97 . Luckily the freezer is stocked with meat and frozen veggies steamers from previous weeks. We still have a full bunch of romaine lettuce from last week, as well as cabbage, a mango, a couple apples, mushrooms, a couple lemons, etc. Sometimes when you find great deals on produce, it lasts a bit longer than you thought it would!

We use tortillas as wraps for lunch all the time. Tortillas are extremely cheap to make, can be made ahead of time and frozen and make lunch on the run super fast. If you don't like making tortilla's, no problem- they are often on sale at Aldi's for .99, just stock up when you find a deal.
