Free Tomato Seeds

I saw this awesome offer on a new website I found,

This week's $88.01 grocery trip.

I try to stick to a budget of $60/week. Sometimes I let myself go up to $70. Last week I was $28.88 under, so my budget this week was $88.88 and I spent $88.01. But I know I will have to go back and get milk and Good-Nites before the week is over, so this week's budget will reach $70.
