Have you been reading along with the SAHM Series? I think all moms (or caregivers) can benefit from some of the things we have talked about so far – simplifying, being real about the appearance of our homes, why we do it, and maybe take a look back at planning monthly menus.
Because today I am going to talk about how to make your grocery shopping easier. Do you ever feel like you are always at the grocery store or it’s more of a hassle because you have little ones in tow? Maybe you could try my new plan!
Do one huge grocery shopping trip (and maybe ask a friend, partner, or grandma to come along to help). During this trip, you can gather up all the staples you’ll need for the month. All of the frozen things, dried foods, canned items, etc that can be stored and will last you the month.
Visit the store only once or twice a week for produce items. If you have forgotten something or need something for the week that is perishable, now would be the time to buy it. But you won’t have to go every day in hopes of finding something good for dinner (because you haven’t planned anything yet).
Order online. This is my favorite one! I now skip over health and beauty, plastics, papers, and some staples in the store because I am shopping online. It makes the monthly trip much easier and managable!
Here are my online lists for ordering – maybe they will save you time shopping too!
