Grocery Haul and Meal Plan – Week 4

This post contains affiliate links. See affiliate disclaimer here

The kids went back to school this week and that means my grocery shopping and meal planning changes a bit.

My daughter gets lunch and morning snack at pre-school and my son brings a packed lunch from home. My son’s school is nut free which makes things a little bit trickier. I send him mostly with bagels and cream cheese. I’m grateful he doesn’t complain about the lack of variety, even though I know he would prefer a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. My husband takes leftovers to work most days.

I still keep to my $125 weekly budget for our family of four.

I also didn’t include the money I earned using the Ibotta App in my budget calculations. I like to think of this as a bonus. If you haven’t tried Ibotta, you are seriously missing out. I earned $2.25 this week on my regular grocery shopping just by using the App. Check out my post on How to Earn Money with Ibotta to learn more!
