Grocery Haul and Weekly Meal Plan – Week 6

Last year my husband and I went vegan for a couple of months, mostly for health reasons. The results were awesome but it was a bit difficult to maintain, especially since the kids weren’t eating vegan (this is a story for another day).

The point of my story is that lately my husband and I have been talking about reducing how much meat and dairy we eat. I’m slowly incorporating more meatless meals into our meal plan. You’ll notice a couple of meatless meals this week. 

Check out our grocery haul and meal plan for our family of four. This is exactly what we buy and what we eat for the week.

If you haven’t been following my weekly grocery haul series, here is a quick recap. We are a family of four – 2 adults and 2 kids (ages 8 and 5). Our grocery budget is $125/week. We eat breakfast and dinner at home and everyone gets a lunch to school or work.

I try to eat organic as much as possible but I don’t break the bank trying to make it work.

I also earned some cash through Ibotta this week. I don’t calculate this in my weekly spending, but find out how I earn money on my grocery shopping.

    1. I’m so glad Aldi is one of your choices and it works for you! When we first moved there were no Aldis and I totally missed shopping there. But about 2 years ago they built 2 near us and I am so happy to have it back!
