Our Weekly Grocery List/ Pantry Items

May 8, 2019 Lex Daddio

Good morning! I wanted to share our go-to weekly grocery list for you guys as well as what we try to keep stocked in our pantry, fridge, and freezer. We buy groceries all over but mostly from Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods, Costco, and then sometimes our local health food market if we need something quick since it’s super close to us. We do most weekly shopping at Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods and then do most of the pantry/ bulk items from Costco. I want to start incorporating the farmer’s market more now too since the weather has been so nice!

Also, here are some tips I’ve found to help cut costs when shopping: Buying in bulk (like Costco) as well as buying from the bulk bins for nuts, seeds, grains, snacks, etc). Buying with less packaging so a whole block of cheese rather than sliced cheese. Buying from Costco. Checking your inventory and trying to be creative with what you have. Freezing things for rotation so you don’t get bored and have a meal/ dessert/ snack/ breakfast prepared in advance. Making things yourself that are way easier than expected & by the way I’m still working on this one myself because sometimes convenience is better (hummus, salad dressing, breads, tortillas, protein bars, nut butters)!

WEEKLY GROCERY LIST:

-fruit: berries, bananas, apples or whatever fruit is in season (usually cheaper this way too)

-lettuce: kale, spinach, mixed greens, arugula, or romaine

Of course it took us awhile to get stocked up, but now we have a good stock so we’re able to just replace items once in awhile when we run out. Especially since we use so many of the same ingredients. I know this list is SO long haha so if it overwhelms you, but you want to stock up more. Just start small and buy a few items from the list each time. No need to break the bank and then you can actually see items you end up using. Also, we don’t always have everything, but this just what we like to have! Hope it’s helpful 🙂

Xoxo,
Lex
