At the end of this week, I went to Trader Joe's (Thursday), Price Chopper (just a quick run in for a roast on sale), Costco (Friday), and Aldi (Saturday). I may head to Hy-Vee on Tuesday before the specials change on Wednesday. This week is not the norm. I usually try to stick to 2 stores. Let's just say there were several completely bare shelves in the fridge before I shopped!
Two little older ladies in Costco were munching on spaghetti samples as my daughter and I rolled by. One peered into my basket and remarked to her friend, "Now there's a healthy cart!" And then to me, "Good job, honey." It was pretty cute. I said thank you.
I know this is not a perfect shopping by any means, but here are my Costco items, from my most expensive grocery shopping trip this week. Cheese? Dairy? Yes. Sigh. They should last awhile. I am trying to cut down on nuts for cost reasons, and I tend to put one or the other in lunches.
- deli turkey
- Tillamook cheddar
- goat cheese
- Kerrygold butter
- romain lettuce
- organic chopped squash
- sour cream
- veggie straws (school snack)
I got lots of raw veggies today at Aldi since carrots, spinach, and tomatoes were on sale there.
The menu plan will be up tomorrow!
