Week 8 Grocery Haul and Meal Plan

Sharing is caring!

I took a little break from sharing our weekly grocery shopping and meal plan but it turns out that was a mistake! I started this series of weekly grocery shopping posts because I wanted to share with people what we really eat and it turns out you guys love it!

I try to keep our weekly grocery shopping to $125 a week for our family of four. We eat all breakfast and dinner at home and I pack lunches for the kids and my husband each day. I also try to buy organic as much as possible, but I don’t let it ruin my budget. More than anything I just try to incorporate as much fruit and veg as I can with each meal!

Meal Plan and Grocery Haul on A Budget

Meal Plan

Keep in mind that meals on this meal plan include ingredients from my pantry and freezer. I had quite a bit of chicken I had stocked up on when it was on sale a few weeks ago. I often check out what’s in my pantry as I’m creating my meal plan and shopping list. And from time to time I’ll do an eat down the pantry challenge, where I buy only the basics and eat exclusively from my pantry and freezer.
