My Personal Shopping List

I had someone message me very recently asking if I wouldn’t mind sharing my personal shopping list. I thought that might be something others would want to see as well. I have a family of 6 and we are by no means wealthy so we shop on a budget probably like many of you. While I am sure all organic and locally grown foods might be better for you we do most of our shopping at Aldi and Walmart. Shopping at Aldi for the majority of our food reduced our shopping bill by around 40%. This below is my mandatory weekly check list. What we cannot get at Aldi we then get at Walmart.

Milk 1%: kids cereal, oatmeal, baking
Oatmeal (quick)
Eggs (lots)
Spinach, carrots, peppers, etc
Berries, apples, oranges, etc
Non-fat greek*
Chicken (~3 pounds of breast)
Lean Hamburger
Lean ground turkey
Natural pb*
100% whole wheat tortillas*
Fat free refried beans
Organic ketchup*
Rice (white and brown)*
Fat free mashed potatoes*
Wheat bread
Shredded cheese
Kids stuff- juice, oven meals, cereals, snack/treats**
Low calorie popcorn*
Dove chocolate covered almonds (Walmart, my weekly treat)
Homemade cheat meal ingredients (changes week to week)
*Things we may not need every week, but I keep stocked.
**I don’t make my kids eat exactly how I do. Yes, I have them try to eat healthier and include fruits/veggies on their plate, but I let them eat normal kid stuff too.
