Shopping at Wegmans: Alone and Under Budget

I finally got to go shopping by myself the other night.  I love my family, but it's SO much easier to shop when they're not with me. I had a pretty long list, and I was planning on going to Aldi for some of the staples, but they were closed for the holiday weekend!  I ended up just getting everything at Wegmans because I didn't know if I would have time later in the week to pick up the rest of my list.  It was so big, I had to take 2 pictures!
I mostly stayed on list, and I did stay under my $80 budget by $6.25! I was hoping to have a little more left over because I'm planning to do some shopping at the natural foods store next week, plus, we are running low on meat.
