Brigette’s $93 Grocery Shopping Trip and Weekly Menu Plan for 6

My older sister, Brigette, shares her shopping trips and menu plans every week! You can go HERE to see all of her weekly menu plans and you can go HERE to read all about her family!

Our original plan was just to buy a few things at Walmart since it’s close by. However, we ended up justifying a trip to Aldi a couple of days later. I’m really glad we did, because there were some crazy low, unadvertised produce prices, as well as cheap milk!

    I love these posts! We aren’t finding the deals at all- the opposite sadly- but those are awesome! I’m assuming this is a typo, but the .89 milk salsa made me laugh! Unless there actually is a thing called milk salsa… I have been known to live under a rock before so no guarantees! 😉

  • Lana says:

    We had crazy prices at our Aldi, too. .39# red grapes and bags of navel oranges were .69 each. Produce in general was just less than the regular prices.

  • Loreta says:

    We just moved to Germany last year and the price of our weekly grocery shopping for our family of three (soon to be four) is really high! I buy most groceries online and plan all meals a week in advance. I find meat and fish is particularly expensive. Even the Aldi over here doesn’t seem as good value as in the US.

    • Brigette Shevy says:

      We lived in Taiwan for two years, and it was really expensive to eat at home (but crazy cheap to eat out at most restaurants!?!?!). It didn’t make sense at all to me. Yes, you absolutely have to adapt your expectations and ideals to whatever sitatuation you find yourself in.
