Grocery Cart Sunday!

It's been a while since I've shared a Grocery Cart Sunday post!  Mostly because I've not been shopping a whole lot ... Hubby's been doing some but honestly, we've been trying to be more conservative with our dollars and using up what we have because ... hopefully sooner than later, we will be moving and well, moving food just doesn't sound like fun, you know?

BUT

I am bound and determined to get this sad ole body to a happy place ... and I'm fully aware that WHAT I eat plays a big role in how I feel ... so what the heck, lets load up on VEGGIES this week!



One stop ... Aldi's, of course because my main goal was veggies and eggs...

2 pints of grape tomatoes $1.79 each
24 oz pk of gourmet medley tomatoes $1.99
2 pkgs taco seasoning 35 cents each
4 pkgs of mushrooms $1.29 each
garlic powder 99 cents
onion powder 99 cents
carton of organic unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk $3.49
     *upcoming recipe that uses this*
gallon of milk $2.99
pk bone in chicken thighs $4.14 (99 cents per pound)
2 containers strawberries $2.49 each
2 containers of living lettuce $1.69 (butter lettuce)
3 heads iceberg lettuce $1.29 each
head of green cabbage $1.29
red onions $1.69
pkg of green onions 99 cents
limes $1.99
organic baby carrots 99 cents
pineapple $1.29
large seedless watermelon $2.99
2 pkgs of green beans $2.39 each
3 containers blueberries $1.29 each
2 blackberries $1.49 each
2 bags of fingerling potatoes $1.69 each
organic bananas $1.38
3 dozen large eggs 95 cents per dozen

Grand Total $66.43 with tax.

Uhm, can I just tell you, this is the store to shop for inexpensive produce!  Do you see those prices? The majority of that stuff would have costs me DOUBLE at Publix or Winn Dixie ...

I've already chopped up one head of lettuce for salads, cleaned 1 container of tomatoes, sliced one package of shrooms (which have already been snacked on and all gone by the Princess boyfriend), cleaned 1 container of strawberries, blueberries and blackberries. Gave away 1 container to blueberries ... and used some of the almond milk for my recipe testing (Cold Brewed Coffee for those of you who are curious ... recipe coming this week and yes, I will be making AGAIN!) ...

And, there you have it ... my grocery trip for the week.

What have YOU bought this week? AND do you shop at Aldi's?

*Yes, I did stop at Whole Foods Friday morning to pick up a container of salad stuff, Tessemaes dressing, a chicken breast, some cold brewed coffee (to compare to my recipe) and, of course, honey crisp apples $22 spent that day but should have been for my lunch that day and a few more days as well*



Looking forward to sharing with some of these GREAT Parties ... go check them out!

  1. That's a very healthy shop! As long as you eat it and don't chuck out a whole lot of rotten food next week :( I love that you get straight in to the preparation.

    1. That is so true and I hate food waste! That's part of the reason why I prep some of the veggies right away in addition to the usual meal prep ;-) We've eaten quite a bit so far, thankfully!

  2. Ooh I love seeing what other people get in their groceries! I watch a lot of grocery hauls on YouTube (and film my own quite regularly), but this is the first blog post I've seen like it. Loving all those fresh foods, they really well help you feel better.
    Good luck for the move too! #blogfair
