Grocery Shopping Brain Teaser

It has been way too long since we have done one of these!

Bobby Braingle is shopping at the grocery store. He purchases a different amount of apples, oranges, bananas, grapes and pineapples. Each of the fruit was either $1, $2, $3, $4 or $5 each and Bobby purchased either 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5 of each fruit. Can you figure out exactly what Bobby purchased?

Clues:
1) The $2 orange was delicious.
2) Bobby bought more apples than oranges, but fewer apples than the $4 fruit.
3) Bobby spent $20 total on grapes.
4) The two $5 fruits needed to have the skin taken off.
5) He did not purchase four apples or four grapes.
6) The pineapples cost $10 which was more than Bobby spent on bananas.

Too little sleep for math this AM! Good luck everyone!

I would like to note that there is no coupon use mentioned. Didn't he get some dressing so he could get some $$ of produce or have a wine tag or anything? Did he get some 'Nilla wafers with a tear pad coupon to make the bananas free??? Anything????

These things always make me feel really dumb - I couldn't figure it out if I worked on it all day!

Oh, and I agree with ladywine - Bobby would have gotten a lot more for his money if he had used coupons!
