Aldi Haul - Summer Edition

If you recall my last "haul" post, Aldi is my jam. I've been saving money there since 2009, when I decided to stay home with baby twins and make a resident's salary work for a family of four (with a trip to Disney here and there) 😉. Now that we're a family of five, with three kids who eat as much as three grown men, I could spend a small fortune at the grocery store. See all that? It cost a whopping $251 and will feed us three meals a day for at least a week... maybe more because y'all KNOW we are in that Chick fit A drive through at least once or twice. But whose counting?

I'll give you a quick rundown of items, but know that 90% of them are the organic/least preservatives/non-GMO options. I love that Aldi offers so many healthy choices for such a small price tag!

If you're wondering what meals we have on the agenda with that amount of food, here's the weekly menu:

1. Deli Sandwich Wraps with Fruit & Veggie Straws

2. Crockpot Lasagna & Italian Salad

3. Pork Carnitas & Beef Tacos with chips & salsa

4. Grilled Chicken Salad (+ apples, berries & goat cheese to mix, see photo below!)

5. Broiled Seafood & Fries

6. Chinese Low Mein/Teriyaki Chicken Stir-Fry

7. Chicken & Broccoli Alfredo

The rest: SNACKS! We do a lot of charcuterie trays, dips, popcorn, yogurt, fruit, granola bars, etc... but yes, we also like chocolate so there's that. Nobody's perfect. 😂

Next week we head off to Daufuskie Island for a beach week and GUESS WHAT? There is no grocery store! I'll be hitting up Aldi one more time with a very strict list, because STRATEGY... five people, no vehicle, ferry transfers, carry-on coolers... ahhhh! It'll be fun they said. 😁 All jokes aside I'm sure it'll be an amazing trip. Can't wait to share all about it when we return!

Sunflower Salad kit with grilled chicken (marinate in Italian dressing for 24 hours), sliced strawberries, walnuts, apples, and garlic herb goat cheese... YUM!
