Could you have bought that $7 of stuff more cheaply by substituting? Or made it yourself?

The impulse purchases were prepared foods that became lunches. Stoufer's cream chip beef, to which I added broccoli and a biscuit; frozen macaroni and cheese; Stouffer's tuna casserole. No doubt homemade would have been cheaper. If I hadn't bought them I would have made a big salad or a cold chicken pasta salad.

I think the delivery fee would often be paid for in what I wouldn't buy if I wasn't there in the store to see it. Not to mention DH buying cakes and ice cream! Ingredients for the prepared items I bought might have cost half of what I paid for the impulse items.
