Grocery Haul

Everyone is always asking how we feed 8 people, how much we spend, how often we shop.. So, I thought it would be fun to show you guys what a weekly grocery haul for our house looks like!

I grocery shop once a week. Spending about $250. I shop on sale and use coupons as often as possible. 

I buy in bulk when things are on sale.. Meats, non perishables, paper goods, etc. Produce and dairy products I have to buy every week. I used to plan out dinners for the week and buy whatever I needed for each one, but that ended up being so much more expensive because I was buying things that weren't on sale. So now I just stock up on what I need for our favorite go-to meals. And if I come across a recipe I want to try or Hubby and the kids ask for something different I'll splurge and get what we need for it. 

So here you go! A weeks worth of groceries for our family of 8!
