Hey friends! I’m back with another monthly grocery haul! I took a break from sharing our grocery shopping for a while.
In the beginning of the year I was focusing all of my blogging time and energy on working with my Grocery Budget Hero students. Then, I got super busy with homeschooling my four oldest kiddos. It has been great, just a lot of work!
I really had a great time sharing all of my strategies for having a low grocery budget and sticking to it in my Grocery Budget Hero course! If you missed out the first time around, I suggest joining the waitlist so you can be the first to know when the course opens up again. If you want to lower your grocery spending and actually stick to your budget, then this course is guaranteed to help you! UPDATE: Grocery Budget Hero is now open for enrollment!
For those who are new here, our family of 8 budgets $500 per month for groceries. We spend the majority of that in one big monthly grocery haul. In February, we spent about $400 in our monthly haul, which included shopping at Winco, Sam’s Club, and a local orchard.
The funny thing about our shopping trips is that it really doesn’t give you any idea of what our actual menu will be. In addition to fresh produce and dairy, I shop according to what we are getting low on in our pantry and food storage, as well as what is on sale. Most of the things on our menu are made from ingredients we already have in our pantry, food storage, or freezer.
This month’s haul included some things we normally don’t buy because we are getting ready for a road trip. Would you like to see how we plan for frugal food on a road trip? I will work on a post and video to show you our money-saving methods. We are also excited to be eating produce from our garden right now!

I hope you are well! I’ve missed checking in with you! Now that school is out and life calms down a little for me, you’ll hear more regularly from me.
