Grocery Shopping and Meal Plan – July 11

How was your weekend? Mine was pretty busy. We ended up shopping twice at each store for reasons. We went back to Shaw’s on Saturday because I forgot a couple of things and my husband picked out some weight-gaining snacks for himself, and on Sunday we took my mother-in-law to Aldi to show her around and got a few more things. Those trips will not be counted in my weekly haul as they were mostly impulse buys.

We’re still working on buying a house but it’s looking pretty good so far. I will be so relieved to move, if only to shop at new stores because Shaw’s is constantly getting things wrong or overcharging me. If we get the house we’re working on, there will still be an Aldi in town but a Hannaford closer than Shaw’s. It will take some readjusting of my shopping methods but hopefully things will be better. There is also a Shaw’s somewhat close so I can still take advantage of their sales.

Aldi haul:

  • Gallon of milk – $1.49
  • Greek yogurt – $0.65 each
