One Week Grocery Shopping Haul

One Week Grocery Shopping Haul for Our Large Family


Ugh. I said, Ugh.

I really do detest going weekly grocery shopping anymore. Don’t get me wrong. I LOVE grocery shopping in general. But since I’ve adapted to the convenience and ease of once-a-month grocery shopping, I can hardly stand it when I have to go weekly. Yet a few times a year it happens. Like currently in our family life we’re adjusting to Travis going back to college full-time for two more years, right at the same time that the kids and I are merging into a new homeschool year. This is all of the heels of spending two weeks away at my mom’s mountain farm, and you know, lots of real life.

So alas, after my two week Aldi grocery shopping trip, I had to do one more grocery shopping trip for just one week. My fingers are crossed that next week we can take a dedicated day and do a heavy once-a-month grocery shopping day. I just need what I need to work with in my freezers and pantry so I can run this ship efficiently. 🙂

In today’s One Week Grocery Shopping Haul for Our Large Family {August 2015} video, Jadin and I hit our local overpriced grocery store for a week’s worth of groceries. It really wasn’t too bad (I did go over budget $38), but it does make me slightly twitchy to go into such an overpriced store. I also discuss a few of my plans for an upcoming freezer meals for the slow cooker series.
