Brigette’s $75 Grocery Shopping Trip and Weekly Menu Plan for 6

My older sister, Brigette, shares her shopping trips and menu plans every week! You can go HERE to see all of her weekly menu plans and you can go HERE to read all about her family!


Our Aldi was pretty picked over, and I wasn’t able to get a number of the things on my list. We will be relying on some of our freezer stash of meat this week (mostly venison) as any version of chicken or beef was unavailable. Hopefully next week there will be more selection – or we will just eat lots of rice and beans. 🙂
