Brigette’s $71 Grocery Shopping Trip and Weekly Menu Plan for 6

It’s been gorgeous weather here in the South the past week! I ended up not making several of the meals on my menu plan last week so that we could grill out. In January.

With this being only my second winter here, and having spent the previous 6 winters in Detroit – this still blows my mind. I love it! This wasn’t an amazing grocery week as far as the sales went, but I did stockpile chicken and bread. And I jumped way out of my comfort zone and bought toilet paper at Aldi. :)
