18 extra large publix eggs: $1.95
1 bag of publix shredded cheese: $2.59

1 can tomato paste: $1.39
1 can tomato sauce: $.99
1 box of whole grain spaghetti: $1.43
5 pornstar sized bananas (2.61lbs): $1.31
1.34lbs of sliced canteloupe (again, a whole one would be a better option for about the same price but no room): $1.36
about a pound of ground chuck beef: $3.91
3 large boneless chicken breasts: $8.49
comes to $27.61 and has to last through wednesday. only thing not included is a small box of cheerios i bought while on vacation but since the bag of cheese only adds flavor and no real nutritional value i think it's ok to substitute them since they cost about the same.
not quite the $21 greg wants but it's pretty close considering i've never done budget grocery shopping before. i think i could do better but we'll see how this week goes first.
