Shopping Summary: June Week #2

My goal this week was a bit different than normal – to get all the ingredients on my list to fulfill a specific diet.  You see, I usually craft my meal plan and therefore shopping list based on what’s on sale and what I have coupons for.

But this week, I’m participating in the Diva Detox and had to obtain hoards of produce!  It’s all I’ve been eating since Wednesday and will continue to eat until next Wednesday.  But I’ve got to say… I’m loving it! I feel great about what I’m putting into my body and know that it was worth every penny.

That said, my savings percentage was no where near what it normally is.  And I’m okay with that.

I’m going to list out what I bought this just cuz – savings or none :)  The pictures are split up by “just normal shopping” and “detox diet ingredients.”
