On Saturdays, I share my menu plan for the upcoming week along with a photo of my groceries and a tally of my spending. My goal is to spend $100/week for our food, toiletries, and cleaning products. I’m currently in the midst of trying to buy more local, sustainably-produced food while sticking to my budget. Can it be done? I don’t know, but I’m going to try, and I’ll share what I learn as I go along.
I spent $41.78 at Aldi and $39.22 at Weis, so I’m at $81.00 even for the week. Yay!
Lunches will be yogurt smoothies, fruit, nuts, sandwiches, and leftovers as necessary.
- Pizza Bagels
- green salad
Sunday (It’s Father’s Day, so we’re not doing breakfast for dinner!)
- Crab Cakes
- homemade rolls
- corn on the cob
- fresh pineapple
- Cherry Cheesecake
- Chicken Tacos
- Spinach Salad
- Shrimp Pizzas (which are more like tostadas than pizzas)
- Club Sandwiches
- raw veggies
- I think we might try to do some sort of date night…either an eat-at-home-without-the-kids date or an actual going-out date.
