Week 17 – $114 Aldi Meal Plan And Grocery Haul

Sharing is caring!

The past few week’s grocery shopping and meal planning has really felt like a chore. I am the first one to admit that doing a weekly meal plan can feel like a chore. And this week was especially hard.

But I did it anyway.

I made my meal plan, stuck to my shopping list, and was able to stay under budget!

And that’s when I’m reminded of why I meal plan in the first place.

My budget for our family of four is $125 a week. This week I came in at $114.80!

You’ll see from my shopping list that I do buy some organic, so if organic is not your thing, you can make this meal plan using this grocery list for even less.

Meal Plan

Before I go to the grocery store, I always do a quick inventory of what I have and what needs to be used before it expires. After I’ve done an inventory, I’ll quickly scan the sales for the stores I’m going to.

We still had quite a bit of fruit and fresh veggies leftover, so most of our snacks incorporated lots of fresh stuff so I could use it up. I had a good amount of zucchini that was on the way out, so I whipped up some chocolate zucchini bread that the kids devoured.

We also had a bunch of snacks leftover from my daughter’s birthday party so I didn’t buy too many snacks this week. I always buy single serve bags of chips for birthday parties. Even though it can be a few dollars more expensive, we’re less likely to end up with half eaten bags of chips that go stale and go to waste.

We ordered a pizza one night since it was my daughter’s birthday and we always let the kids choose their birthday dinners.

Most of the dinners I make end up with leftovers. Some I will freeze, others my husband and I will eat for lunch.

I don’t list it out, but every meal we eat is served with fruit.
