Great grocery shopping. I don't know what your area is like, but I would suggest trying to find another grocery store than Walmart. It seems that I can usually beat the Walmart price at other grocery-only stores. I'm also not tempted to buy other non-grocery items that I would find at walmart. You might be able to shave a few more dollars off. Hope this helps a little. Hope your loving your new job. I pray for you a lot.

Blessings your way,
