Aldi Haul + Budget + Meal Plan

>> Tuesday, January 30, 2018

Do you guys like these Aldi posts? Back when I started writing them, Aldi wasn't as much a thing as it is now. I feel like whenever I'm there, it's so crowded lately. It's a good and bad thing. I love sharing the good news . . . yet, I want it all to myself.

Here's this week's haul:

Closer up:


So, the total was $93.67.


Some of this includes sugar bought specifically for Stephen's kombucha making. He splits these costs three ways with some friends. Basically, Stephen makes the kombucha and they drink it at work all month. I can get into that whole thing in another post.


I also bought some things specifically for the Super Bowl:

Overall, I stuck to my list and only got a couple extras. I still need to pick up bananas, Earth Balance, tofu, and maybe a couple other produce items, like ginger, at Wegmans. I wrote last week about re-doing our grocery budget. I have landed on $125/week for the time being. With cooking everything at home and still trying to keep it interesting, I feel this number should work, but I'll report back.


Last but not least, here's our meal plan for dinners this week:

  1. Monday: Mac + Cheese with veggies (kids) // Veggie burgers + onion rings (parents)
  2. Tuesday: Slow cooker chili + garlic knots
  3. Wednesday: Spaghetti and faux "meat" balls with veggies
  4. Thursday: Breakfast for dinner -- eggs, toast, veggies, etc.
  5. Friday: Homemade pizza night
  6. Saturday: Veggie-loaded quesadillas (kids) // Slow cooker Indian + paneer + naan (parents)
  7. Sunday: Slow cooker bean + mushroom stew + biscuits + Super Bowl snacks
