What feeding 10 people looks like

This is our produce buy for the week. I shop on wednedays at the hispanic markets for produce as they have the best prices and wednesdays they have produce specials. I am almost exclusively buying my produce here now or price matching at walmart.

We got 43 lbs of produce tonight including apples, cantaloupe, grapes, strawberries, onions, tomatoes, lettuce, mangos, and peaches.

We also got 7 lbs of rice and 15 lbs of meat(pork chops and whole chickens).

We paid @ $38 for all of this with $20 of that being the meat. We will have to get more meat and still have oranges to get, but with 10 people in the house, this will last us about a week, maybe a few days longer, but we will be buying more next Wednesday.

Though this is a coupon blog, it is rarer these days for me to get free produce with coupons, so this is the way to go. And since my huge stockpile of free boxes of rice is gone now, I will also be buying rice here until I can get it free again. I am paying $1 for 3-4 pounds of rice when it is on sale instead of $1.50 for one pound at Fry's.
