The Math of Optimal Shopping Sprees

I need to spend at least $25 at the grocery store to claim a discount. I want to minimize how much I go over $25. I have a list of a half a dozen items I want and their prices. Is there a program that can generate shopping lists that would meet the criteria? I want more than just the optimal list because I can get this discount repeatedly and I don't want to buy the same thing each time.
