Week 9 Grocery Haul and Meal Plan

Sharing is caring!

This week my trip to the grocery store was a bit rushed and not as well planned as I would have liked. Everyone has been sick this week including me and my husband. I took about 2 minutes to throw together a meal plan on a scrap of paper (including our Easter Meal) and headed to the store.

I usually take a bit more time to look at the weekly sales at Aldi and Sprouts and plan my meals around them. This week I just stuck with what I knew and grabbed things on sale as I saw them that I figured we needed.

Surprisingly, I was only a dollar over budget. I also was still able to earn $0.75 on my Ibotta app.

If you haven’t followed the rest of my grocery haul and meal plan series, here’s a quick recap:  We are a family of four with two adults and two kids. We eat all breakfast and dinner at home and I pack lunches for everyone each day. Also, you might see foods on our meal plan not listed as part of the grocery shopping trip. These are items already in our pantry or freezer.
