Restocking the Pantry

Very recently, we've had two large families in need of supplies from our church's pantry.  In an effort to restock, I'd like to give an example of how far a dollar can go.  Actually, about $70.  A few of the items in the first picture were donated by a very gracious lady here in town.    

Most everything else was purchased at Publix, CVS and Target over the past 10 days.  Here is the tally:
  • 23 canned goods
  • 4 bottles of lotion
  • 6 "Huge" rolls of paper towels
  • 24 double rolls of toilet paper
  • 4 bars of soap
  • 3 body wash
  • 2 shampoo
  • bread crumbs
  • 2 jars of peanut butter
  • 1 box of popcorn
  • 1 bottle of olive oil
  • 5 boxes of pasta
  • 3 boxes of cereal
  • 2 cans of cooked chicken
  • 2 large bottles of pasta sauce
  • 2 air freshener sprays
  • 1 package of pantiliners
  • and a reusable shopping bag
What about you:  how far can you stretch $70?
