I am hoping for this to become a regular weekly post! As a busy working mom, getting
healthy meals on the table each week is definitely a lot of work. I strive to get the best deal and save money when we can, but I have also learned that sometimes it is worth it to spend for convenience.
This was probably a strange week for me to start this up. It was my birthday and we hosted a party and we had family staying in town with us. But better now than never!
Here’s what I spent:
$79.85 at aldi (pantry staples, breakfast foods and some produce)
$75 at wegmans (party sandwich platter and supplies)
$14 produce club (I will write a future post about this great way I get produce!)
$40 at Wegmans (salmon, rice pilaf and spinach)
Total: 208.85 **definitely on the higher side, and we had some takeout mixed in. Hoping to do better next week. We don’t have a specific set grocery budget as we are still trying to get in the groove with our busy schedules and balancing cost with convenience.
Dinner- Salmon, roasted cauliflower, rice pilaf and green beans
Breakfast- crustless spinach and egg quiche, blueberry muffins and potato latkes
Lunch-salad/stuff from fridge
