I haven’t shared our grocery hauls in a while. It’s not that we haven’t shopped. We have! We just haven’t done a monthly grocery shopping trip like we normally do.
It has cost us too! If you’ve seen our last couple of budget updates you know that our food spending was up. I’m pretty confident that the spending increase is more from multiple (and additional) shopping trips than from inflation.
I’m off to a good start in July with a monthly grocery haul from Sam’s Club, Winco, and Save Mart.

With our garden starting to produce, along with everything we have in the freezer, pantry, and food storage, we should not need too many other things throughout the month.
It’s Your Turn!
What are food prices like where you live?
Have you decided to adjust your budget because of inflation or are you managing fine with your standard grocery budget?
Great job on produce prices, I’m in the south and we are sending our produce out and getting produce from other places, I have chosen to do without items if I cannot find it local. With so many of our farmers struggling in our area and the next state over I am making my grocery list by what they are bringing in from the fields or raising on the farms. Our strawberry season started with California strawberries at 2.99 a pound and we sent ours out. We just got in ours last week at 1.49 a pound at Aldi that was the cheapest. Blueberry and blackberry season got hit hard as we had a couple of hail storms late in the year. Eggs went down to 2.13 a dozen at Aldi last week and a gallon of milk 3.13 at Aldi. Those are the cheapest prices in our surrounding counties and into the next state over. Hurricane season hit hard last year and my garden didn’t due so well. I am just going to put some plants in pots this year that we use often. Glad the Grocery Haul is back and Thank you for all you do.
