shopping? I shop mostly at Costco this month, I did, I tried to do most of my shopping at Sam's Club. at Walmart only they were cheaper and a little bit at Trader Joe's so I'll show you today I did that for a couple of days. I'm 31 weeks pregnant 32 by the time you see this and I'm a little tired walking around Aldi all this is a great place to get a bunch of cheap stuff but I just didn't have the energy for it so I use the pick up service at walmart and sam's club and trader joe's it was a quick short walk oh yeah that's why I did those stores this month shopping at costco one month then sam's club the next.

I could see the prices really were pretty similar keep in mind we didn't have to buy beef we bought a cow which is in our freezer so I'm buying chicken and some fish sometimes but no meat for a while it won't be for a while that will doe save us at least a hundred 150 maybe a month at the store our grocery budget for the month is normally 1300 bucks but like i said since we are saving some money i hope to see it below that and so at the beginning of the month I buy most of my groceries we plan all our meals breakfast lunch dinner snack for the month and plan the ones we use the

food

we already have if we have something left over we turn it over and use it to plan the next meal for a month and then we go and buy as much as we can there are some fresh fruits and vegetables that we need to buy in the middle of the month just because they won't last a month but everything else we buy at beginning of the month and that is what you are going to see - we are a

family

of 11 people, we have adolescents in this house who are growing and eating a lot and I am pregnant, I am growing and even a lot - so you will see that reflected throughout this tour, I'm sure I have a pretty full table here we have two boxes of raisins the kids reminded me I haven't bought those in a while a pretzel thing we make pretzels once a week for snack we are making brats one night on the grill finally we got a new grill our girl broke and it's great to have grilled

food

especially since my husband is the only one who had dinner yesterday that night and I loved some white sugar because when my kids bake they need white sugar. most things around here without white sugar so for everyday things we use maple syrup and honey to make our granola to sweeten our yogurt homemade yogurt that kind of thing almond milk especially we use that when alone and i make smoothies it keeps them nice and low carb and it's good here's our lunch meat for the month I like that these are separate packages I'll keep them in the freezer until we need them so they never have a chance to go bad and I like that they are like four big packages and thick because I only make one a week this mozzarella cheese I thought we could use that when we are making spaghetti we are going to make a lot of pasta sauce on the noodles for the kids for lunch at least once a week the cheese mozzarella would be great on top of that or parmesan just want to make sure i had a bit of each of these too i'll put it in the freezer straight away you and this lasts a long time in the pantry do you keep it in your fridge or in your pantry i have always kept it in my pantry but my sister in law jill says fridge tell me what you make this mexican style cheese we use in all kinds of sundries dinners and things when we need cheese tacos all that kind of stuff so i leave them in the freezer and just take them out as needed the one thing i find about ordering online is every once in a while i get to something i was meaning to get and other times I won't get something I intended to order so I don't know how it happens I really thought I ordered a ketchup thing but I have two of them I have six ketchups I had to buy this last month I never have to buy it two months in a row some kids opened another one without checking to see if there was another one in the fridge so we actually have two full ones in the fridge they're pretty full and now we have six but they're not going to spoil so no I complain too much.

I do this twice a week and I used to shop a different way, not in this bulk form and this Quaker Oats thing, so it's been interesting to see how much I need and so far we haven't run out of two bags of chips. I probably buy more of these mid month or we make baked potatoes once a week for lunch the kids eat them as a side dish with dinner sometimes this is a once a week snack on Saturdays they have a yogurt and love it that Solo likes this particularly a lot I eat from time to time also that one does not have sugar this is the amount of mayonnaise that a

I guess I have a ton of non-food items. i'm going to show you but this ended up on the table this is the applesauce we eat once a week for breakfast the kids eat applesauce and cottage cheese on toast so i bought six of those i only bought a bag of lettuce they didn't have the big hearts of romaine lettuce which I prefer feel like they last longer we can use them as sandwich wraps too but they didn't have that today so I just bought this bag and as soon as I ordered I realized I should have bought you one of those but you know what if we go back to sam's club ok we'll get it a and right now i'm not eating a lot of salads i haven't been feeling well i've been sick for a long time and i really don't feel like eating something healthy when i'm really sick and a dinner It's going to be the Big Mac salad for us so that bag will go towards these three brussel sprout eggs which will only last us these first two weeks of the month sometimes we cook a little bit ahead for solos, even to take out for lunch, he loves Brussels. sprouts, but we also eat them for dinner.
Two bags of string cheese. These are an added snack for us. Children can eat one a day. i love diet coke i love cold and soda i am not a hot drink person buy frozen broccoli these are really good vegetables i really like it in chicken curry i make more broccoli green beans lately i have been having these green beans instead of making them in the microwave like I usually make broccoli. I just roasted it. in the oven maybe with some Parmesan cheese like that can of Pernod cheese and salt. I mix it with a little bit of coconut oil and then roast my 400 for about 25-30 minutes and they are really good or even longer if you want them. crispy or something that's a great way to eat green beans my kids gobble them up that way they love there are some roma tomatoes some multi colored cherry tomatoes and I know I have another pack of tomatoes somewhere that Noelle brought me hmm it's going to be a mystery as to where they are they are just like that only they are all cranberries strawberries the kids eat them in their oatmeal they love those frozen berries we also use it for smoothies I have a big 10 pound bag of chicken breasts I have some breast left over from chicken from last month so that will be our chicken breast for the month and then this is Oh diced tomatoes I got it in the box last month at Costco and it sure is nice and easy to get in a box like that probably not quite as cheap as buying the tins at aldi but its what its for right now grape jam got a couple of them trying something new this month we are going to make this for a ce na this will go with pasta and with chicken some alfredo sauce i want to make my own alfredo sauce but it was a good deal i thought let's do it for now i think it was $5 for this but for us for a meal with chicken breast and vegetables on the side and pasta that's a good easy meal i have a big old jar of pickles i have one about a quarter full in my fridge right now so we like pickles a heavy whipping cream i add this to our smoothie sometimes especially the ones that are so low and i do yum it's a chocolate peanut butter shake a little bit of whipped cream goes a long way and then here's a little bit of coconut oil which is what we mostly cook with i have three things greek yogurt we make our own yogurt for breakfast but it's not low carb by any means means when I'm making dips or ranch dressing we've been making ranch dressing which is so delicious with mayonnaise and this, p So it's nice to have a lot of these around.
I also like to use them as a starter for my homemade yogurt. I think it makes better yoghurt than repurposing old yoghurt for a starter, you know what I mean, the cottage cheese has two of those which are for that breakfast I told you about. I also have some leftover Ezekiel bread that I like to have for breakfast. Sometimes I love a bit of this cottage cheese on top of that with butter. so good i got two great things sour cream let's go there he loves sour cream around here he just likes to sweeten his coffee these days with stevia and i noticed this looked like a good deal at sam's club i know a lot of people like that haven't tried it i hope like it because i got all four hundred packs i think you'll like it oh what are those newborn diapers i didn't really mean to order new diapers hey i'm about to have a newborn and the box isn't too big so literally i bought no thing for this baby but now i can say i bought newborn diapers yeah wow im so good i didnt even know i bought everest for newborns thats crazy cause i bought a box of size four thats what i intended to buy for my little one. girls y'all think i got them for free no that probably didn't happen hey listen sometimes i guess sam's club stuff i didn't intend to buy for some reason or was just bad.
Sam's Club is so good at retrieving stuff always take it back no problem oh look at that sweet baby im going to have one of those soon this is so much fun for me i bought this somehow somehow okay i bought two of these caddies focus on sarah about two things about these popsicles my kids love these popsicles they're all fruit whatever i think they're better than a lot of the popsicles out there so they're worth it we make them as a snack once once a week, if we have any left over, we put them in whenever we can on hot days Ask for popsicles, this is tender spinach, I'm making some trimmed hea.
Dirty mom's food that's like creamy chicken with spinach and bacon bits and it's good here are those tomatoes I was talking about and here's the cheese for the month I can afford these blocks of cheese that go on our sandwiches and those stuff let me take a food break for a second to talk about Kleenex I went through six boxes in the last ten days because I got sick toilet paper vinegar white vinegar I don't have to buy this very often but when I do I better buy a lot because it doesn't really spoil the book of vinegar it spoils i don't think i've ever had it to spoil anyway we use it in our kitchen we use it in our laundry room sometimes we add it to a wash load to make the wash more gentle and we use it too for science experiments hashtag homeschoolers theres some dish soap in there some paper plates the size of the diapers i was meaning to buy and my habit ito of diet coke and my shoes there ok here are our fruits and vegetables we have this big bag of oranges we have two bags of tangerines we have eaten so many peaches and nectarines in the last few months my kids were really excited to be back at the apples, so we bought threebig bags of apples that is two weeks worth of fruit for us with the bananas we will get from walmart here are our tortillas that we like we use for lunches some meat and cheese for lunch and we microwave it and some of my kids like mayonnaise and we roll it up we call it roll up and you wonder that two of those for lunch we do that I think twice a week now and sometimes for taco night so I bought five of these bags of twenty I like that Sean whole wheat and flax tortillas is better not the healthiest tortillas I could buy but better than many of them and they are pretty affordable there bread wise.
I bought eight two-packs, so I bought 16 loaves of bread and that's our bread for the month. just make some bread i haven't been making bread lately because im too tired for such events but i definitely can if we run out of some of this and i like to keep this in a cupboard and as i find more and more space in my fridge and freezer, I'll put these loaves of bread in the fridge or freezer while it's still warm outside just to keep them from spoiling, these are also included in my Sam's Cup Club swag and Sam's Club money, but they came in the mail because they didn't they had them at the store ok i think my light might fight me a bit i'm going to show you what i got at walmart so this is it i couldn't find a sam's club or if it was much cheaper here at walmart so no i tried to get as much as possible at sam's if it was definitely cheaper at walmart i just bought it there good thing i have to pick up both stores just drive and pick up which is definitely my temp ada of life at this time.
I'm so thankful I don't walk through a store. i cant even tell you ok here are my lighting issues im gonna have to thank you for sw Seeing my flat luka had such a jolly attitude hes good at it ok i have eight milk this is the butter for the what we went through, this is ridiculous, ridiculous amounts of butter, there are 11 of us and this is a month, I don't know, this seems a little Crazy to everyone else, but only ten. We have these double pike leftovers in quiche night. We will make four cake pans.
Two of them I make with the bark for the kids. the ones that don't have and others eat them and it's too easy to buy them the mushrooms are for the chicken alfredo we have four things of cilantro just for the first two weeks and yes they came in plastic all this came in plastic bags that's right it goes here, but i'm reusing those plastic bags we have dirty nappies around here and then little trash cans so they don't get thrown away eventually they do but reuse first ok i have all these whole grain noodles we use for lunches and then this pasta wholegrain la l Long noodles like spaghetti noodles I guess they are for a couple of dinners the chicken alfredo one night and spaghetti one night then we got lots of spinach for the back not really that much for the bags of spinach four bags of frozen chopped kale and we cook with a lot of veggies around here if you've been around a lot you know we just cook with a lot of veggies it's nice to have all that spinach in my frozen r and in fact we have a little more I just needed more than what we had this is our line of bananas it's 50 bananas.
I know because Walmart agrees with me on how many bananas we got. Sam's Club ran out of bananas, they only had the organic bananas, which is why I bought them at Walmart. Usually they call me and say: is that you? sure you really want 50 bananas and then i say yes i have 10 bags of bagels we make bagels on sunday mornings for the kids breakfast 1 2 3 4 5 6 oh i don't have eight so we make two i'm planning for four weeks because the i'm playing for the month and we make two bags in the morning ing and usually a block of cream cheese so i have eight blocks of cream cheese just because i know at least one recipe i'm making.
I need two blocks of cream cheese so I thought I might have forgotten one two and we will have some more will last two next month if needed. I have brown rice here because Sam's Club didn't have brown rice. I actually prefer Aldi brown rice, but I wasn't going into Aldi this month. Aldi saves me a lot. money I miss him but I've been sick I'm in my last trimester so low he doesn't have much time he's more than willing to go to Aldi for me but right now it was easier for me to get it at Walmart so we eat brown rice a couple of times a week and this is just stocking up on some of the basmati brown rice. it was one of the things that was cheaper at walmart than sam's club so let's go make salmon try to make fish or something The kind of seafood once a week just so the kids try lots of different kinds of food and salmon so good for them so good for me i'm pregnant too so we'll make salmon in the oven one night.
I really am not. great for seasoning salmon and a half just do that. I don't know if you have any great simple seasonings that you make when you cook salmon on the grill or in the oven. Hey, I'd love to hear them. simple and quick is my favorite and then I have some canned salmon because we are going to make salmon patties. I found a simple recipe for that. So what makes a Patty's one night and I'll share that recipe if it works out to make it two of our fish meals and have tilapia in the freezer for the others that we just didn't get to last month.
I bought some vegetarian spirals. I love zucchini noodles, but the zucchini I bought recently has gone fat and bad, it's very fast, so I thought I'd better just keep it. some of these in the freezer so for those two nights they ate pasta so low and I'd eat it in this and then hopefully we'll have some more or find other ways to use it. These were requests from the kids for taco night. They wanted some hard shells, so we usually make tacos once a month around here. easy dinner Got some Halo Top ice creams just a couple of them for me my kids don't care for them anyway so don't feel bad for them they get lots of treats around here if we take them out for some ice cream. or something that I like to have some option that this doesn't give me like this big sugar rush and my favorite favorite they replaced it with cookies and cream because cookies and cream are not my favorite my favorite is red velvet it tastes like it to me brownie but i haven't seen it in a while this is a birthday cake i got a couple of those and then they gave me a goody bag this time too i don't really look here i don't know why they haven't given me one like the first first time i did a pick up tour maybe they only do it once in a while so i'm coffee um cheese it feels like there's five cheeses in there and then i bite into Oreos wouldn't it be nice if they gave me nine things?
No, I'm just kidding, this is so good on granola. I'm kidding guys and then this is like oh that's a scent and all up look it's a scent thing for your clothes baby baby lotion how y'all know? open the samples look at my kids they can smell junk food i stocked up on these things we have loved these things so oh and i eat a lot when the kids eat potatoes or even when we make spaghetti sometimes i haven't always had those noodles or have had to Suki kneeling or spaghetti squash or whatever so we just put our spaghetti sauce on it it's great so anyway I thought I ordered eight of them apparently I ordered ten of them which is a lot but I just got i stocked the freezer for lunch we usually make once a week we usually make like pea mayonnaise mix with tuna noodles together and my kids are sick of it so with whole wheat noodles we are switching to some.
I use this pizza sauce from Walmart because it's low sugar and it's sugar free I don't think so we use that for spaghetti sauce so we'll make it some sauce with the pasta for lunch one time. She loves noodles. Well, we're just going to try this for the other kids. In fact, he has a couple of them that he still loves. but everyone else is the type to break so Gaviscon has two of those hello third quarter and then it's some kids who needed toothbrushes. Walmer had it for a dollar. I love being able to add these things into my collection and not work.
It is a store. this is the amount of eggs we spent almost exactly last month we spent exactly that amount which is one hundred and eighty eggs saudade that's my loot from walmart it all cost me two hundred and forty three dollars i think most of that money went to my butter and my salmon that bag of salmon by the way was like $15 and it's really big. I just have to tell you that I was putting my groceries away and I must not have done a very good inventory of my fridge like I usually do before I go shopping because I found a bunch of butter at my first job last month so I don't know for a while. couple months we used a ton of butter and then i increased a bit which was ok and then i figured last month we didn't use as much so it better last a long time.
You don't have to buy anything. I am stocked with butter. I also had to go to Trader Joe's, so I'll show you what I have there. I found some romaine lettuce. This is a couple of days later we're having tacos tonight and we just need a low carb Chintu I hope you have a lot to say we need a low carb option to wrap it up and then yeah ok I also got some whole wheat noodles so like i said a couple of days later i realized we definitely need more as walmart didn't have all of them so i bought two bags they are a bit more expensive.
Ensive there but they're also organic it's not really painful ok let me move on to the cookies yeah we got some pumpkin cookies just because it's fall and apple cider cookies for the kids. I got these almonds just to send with soullow to have a little snack at work all the time keep them there to soften up so these two went because i was hungry there so let's fix it cupboard in there always something to fix it this goat cheese some goat cheese I'll find some - oh I think I'm going to chop up some tomatoes and put some goat cheese in balsamic vinegar and then this is a great cheese.
I love this cheese. It's a nice big block. It tastes so good. A breath from New Zealand. well when we show them this is really why i went into trader joe's they are creamy salted peanut butter no attitude at all it's literally just roasted peanuts and salt and it's a great price there to my kids they love it and then i wanted to pick up some dark k chocolate while i was there but they didnt have a regular input type on my search apparently they just came out right now but on my search i found this then i remembered i had seen a lot of comments telling me they said try trader joe it's just light so this usually the dark chocolate i buy has no added sweeteners this one will probably be much sweeter because it's a house sweetener so i tried the milk chocolate one too , but as you can see the net carbs in dark chocolate is one gram and it's two grams in milk chocolate and then I think if I'm counting my carbs right, looking at the alc sugar ohol and the five or whatever I think these are two grams of carbs and it looks good I love Reese's and I love sunflower butter so I'm going to try these.
I have a couple of those snacks for kids, adults, to be honest with you since I've been sick. I'm sick for what seemed like three more than three. weeks it was really hard for me to go back to eating just usually like fit mom healthy which is more of a low sugar diet plan and it makes me feel better overall and stuff but its harder to get back to it because I don't It felt good and I'm sure I'm going to overeat. I hope these goodies help a little. The total for my Trader Joe's was fifty-three dollars.
I think I bought a couple of expensive items there. This sure came from Amazon. Actually, it's three bags of 90 each of dental floss. flossing and more kids teeth isn't in my grocery budget either but i wanted to show you guys anyway i picked up some pumpkins for church we have a few tables in our foyer and i love the look of these trader joe's pumpkins what a they had to offer. they're real and they look very raw and real and this one I don't know if you can tell but it's pinkish looking and it's more orange with a lot of green and they need to be cleaned up a little bit well that's our food for October I'll put the whole thing up here, thanks guys for watching today hope you have a great

october

and see you soon bye.
