Typically, I go to the grocery store every week. I’m getting a little tired of going out in the cold and lugging back groceries all the time, so this week I’m going to try something new.
I’m going to try to plan my menu and list for two weeks out.
When I put together my menus and shopping list, I was surprised that the total still only added up to about $40. I usually spend $30-35 per week, so that’s good!
Next week, I’ll spend about $10 on perishable items I need to replace, such as milk, eggs, fruits and vegetables.
Already, I feel like I’m saving time and possibly money as well.
If I only go to Aldi every two weeks, I’ll save on gas at the very least.
I guess the moral of the story is to be willing to change your routine a little bit–maybe you’ll find something that could work even better.
How often do you shop?
