Meal Plan and Grocery Shopping – April 25

Welcome to another week! Did you have a nice weekend? We finally met with a realtor this week and we’re going to see our first house on Tuesday! It will be so nice to finally get our own house.

Here are my groceries and meal plan for the week.

Aldi haul:

  • Oranges – $2.99
  • Strawberry jelly – $1.99 (trying new varieties from Aldi to replace the $3.49 kind from Shaw’s)
  • Three pack of bell peppers – $1.49
  • Bread – $1.39
  • Cantaloupe – $0.99
  • Tortellini – $2.69
  • Greek yogurt (for special project this week) – $3.69
  • 1 lb of mozzarella cheese – $2.99
  • Turkey sausage – $1.99
  • Milk – $1.49
  • Baby spinach – $1.99

  • Black beans – $1 (forgot to buy at Aldi)
  • Rice Pilaf and Couscous – $1 each

  • Two boxes of cake mix – $1 each (for upcoming birthday party, one to practice with and one for the party)

Not bad for what I bought, including a few splurges.

With the exception of the chicken dish, every other meal is modified from the original recipe this week.
