Brigette’s $39 Grocery Shopping Trip and Weekly Menu Plan for 6

After looking through my refrigerator, pantry and freezers – I realized we have lots of food that needs to be used up, and not much food we needed to buy at the grocery store this week. My youngest had his tonsils out this week, so we’ve had people show up unexpectedly with food gifts. It felt weird to have so little in my grocery cart this week. 🙂

    I am curious what a baked potato bar is? I have never heard of one of these before. How do you make it?

    Brigette,

    Thinking of your youngest (& you)! Our daughter had her tonsils out & while it went well there were some rough days! It isn’t fun to watch our kids be miserable! The unexpected gifts can make it a better experience too! Wishing a speedy recovery!
