Grocery Spending/Menu Plan (with multiple photographers!)

I had a little help this week with the job of photographing the groceries.

Lisey has a real camera, while Sonia has a toy one.

Zoe prefers to shoot using a pair of binoculars (backwards). “Mommy, is dis a camra?”, she asked.

I said, “No, but you can certainly use it as one.”

And so she did.

Sonia is into taking closeups, apparently.

Oh, and I did remember to actually take a picture of the groceries. Here you go.

Joshua got his camera out at the last minute too, but somehow he escaped being caught on MY camera. 😉

I spent $33.25 at Weis, and $57.96 at Aldi, for a total of $91.21, almost $8 under budget.

Here’s what we’re eating for dinner this week:



  • We’re having a potluck lunch at church, and then some snacky stuff for dinner


  • Fajitas made with grilled chicken, shrimp, peppers, and onions
  • fruit salad




  • Ham and Mushroom Panini sandwiches (bumped from last week)
  • fruit salad


  • BBQ chicken pieces (using up some drumsticks from the freezer)
  • green salad
  • some kind of bread that I will decide upon later 😉

Dont you just love Aldi? I have one here in my hometown and that is where I do the majority of my shopping. I only make one stop at my local grocer for some fresh meat and we are good. I do have a question what do you guys do for lunch, leftovers? I see your posts about breakfast and dinner but I am kind of new to your blog and have not seen anything about lunch. Thanks!
