Walmart Shopping Load!  

I live in a small town called Brady, Tx and the only decent place to buy groceries is our local Walmart! Due to my health condition I dread shopping So when I go shopping I try to get enough food to last my family for a few weeks! We typically are not picky eaters ( I don’t force my family to cut out everything I can’t have) so there are lots of home made meals happening in my home!

I always stick to our grocery budget of $250 every two weeks! Mind you I also budget household items in too! I stress every single time I go buy groceries!! We love having fresh fruits and vegetables (organic if possible) and that can really get costly!
We do not buy meats often because we eat fresh beef and venison meat thanks to my wonderful In-Laws!!  Chicken is usually my go to when having to cook a healthy meal! I am a huge fan of boneless skinless chicken, You can put together so many meals with chicken so I stock up every shopping trip! I don’t know about you but a full fridge and freezer makes me so happy! I love having plenty of food available for my family!

We always have goodies on our list such as

  • Nature valley Granola
  • Yoplait Yogurt
  • Dole Fruit in 100% juice
  • Bagels and cream cheese
  • Fresh fruits and veggies
  • Simply juices
  • Gatorade
  • Organic milk
  • Cage free eggs
  • Sunny D orange juice
  • Snack Pack Pudding  and jello
  • Spaghetti
  • Any brand spaghetti sauce
  • Chicken
  • Frozen broccoli
  • Toaster strudel
  • Frozen fruit

  • Pretzels
  • Cheeses
  • Crackers of all brands
  • Peanut butter crackers
  • Chips
  • Nutella
  • Peter Pan peanutbutter
  • Bacon

And well you get the picture! Our three freezers stay full along with our fridge, snack cabinets and pantry.  I try to keep snacks healthy but when you have little ones… that’s almost impossible! I also have many cravings for goodies so I am guilty! I love muffins, brownies, and anything sweet!!

As for house hold items I like to jump from brand to brand and try new things! I am not very picky other than trying to use less chemicals around my children and animals!

After a long day of shopping, sorting, cleaning and well.. being a mom I am exhausted! Taking care of my family comes first and I try to do the best I can to provide us good food on a budget! I hope you enjoyed reading, be sure and like and follow!
