Here’s This Week’s $61 Grocery Trip & Meal Menu

I’m back sharing my third consecutive week of grocery shopping and meal planning. I’ve done random meal menus and grocery trips in the past. Yet, it’s been years since I’ve done them consecutively.

This week I went slightly over my $60 goal. I knew this would probably happen because I got a few snack items at BJs. We all know almost all items at BJs or Costco are $10 each. Who am I kidding it’s still so close I’m happy with it!

I did use a few coupons and stumbled upon a nice clearance price on granola bars at BJs.

If you missed my last two weeks of shopping tap here to see those. I try to include a video each week too.

Below is the video recap or scroll down for the grocery items I bought and what meals I’m making.
