Menu Plan and Grocery Shopping (UPDATED)

On Mondays I share my grocery shopping from the weekend and my menu plan for the next week. I do this to keep an eye on my grocery spending ( I am trying to keep our grocery expenses to under $70 a week) and to have a plan for what to eat during this crazy thing called life. It is just one way that I can live better one day at a time.

This weekend, I went to Aldi and to Kroger.

This weekend I bought:
Aldi: Spent $25.75

Kroger: Spent $ 70.55 all together, but some of that was household items like batteries, a rechargeable battery charger (which was $19.99) , toilet paper, etc. so our food total from Kroger was $ 30.60

Food total for the week: $25.75 + $30.60 = $56.35!!!! YAHOO!!!!!!

I am hoping to keep this up and not buy too much as we are probably going to be moving at the end of the month.

Now onto my menu plan:

Menu planning is one thing I can do to simplify our life and to help me live better one day at a time!

MONDAY: Chicken patties, corn on the cob(leftover from the weekend), salad, green beans
TUESDAY: Macaroni and cheese, salad, carrots
WEDNESDAY: pizza, salad, veggies from fridge
THURSDAY: salmon, grilled cheese (for Kiddos), rice and broccoli
FRIDAY: Frozen tv dinners (we have a variety in our freezer that we need to use up) and/or peanut butter and jelly sandwiches
SATURDAY: Tex mex chicken in the crockpot and rice
SUNDAY: beer battered fish, veggies, salad
