I am curious why if you are on such a strict budget why you are buying gluten free products premade? There are tons of recipes out there for GF bread, biscuits, pizza crusts etc. I am not passing judgement it is just a suggestion to extend the savings as myself cannot have gluten and since i have started baking my own GF needs I have saved our family hundreds of dollars. I would be happy to share any recipes and ideas I have if it would help you.
Thanks Linda. I made my own bread from scratch for many years (I bought wheat berries and ground them myself). Honestly I am just completely burned out on it. Since my daughter is the only one eating gf, we buy the bread for her. We do make our own pizza crust (recipe here), but I have purchased pre=made crusts when she gets tired of our homemade one. If you have a good gf bread recipe for a bread maker, we might try it.
I lurrrrv lettuce wraps! I had a guacamole lettuce wrap last week while on my fruit and veggie fast. To. die. for.

interesting lineup….I have started using GF bisquick mix now as it subs for so many things….I have never seen Udi bagels for less than 6.00 for 4 though….with the way my ds eats,I rarely buy those!
