Grocery Haul and Meal Plan – Week 3

This week’s grocery haul and meal plan are a bit different because this week was a short one. We headed out of town on vacation, so I didn’t buy too many meal time items and bought quite a few car trip snacks. I also didn’t want to have too much left in the refrigerator so we had some really simple meals this week.

In addition, I skipped my grocery shopping at Aldi this week because I had to take both kids to the grocery store with me. Aldi and Sprouts are right next to each other so I always do both on the same day. One grocery store with two littles is tough enough, I just was not into making two stops with them. I also earned some cash through Ibotta. I don’t calculate this in my weekly spending, but find out how I earn money on my grocery shopping
