I’m trying to bring the grocery shopping back under control this month – mostly as relates to the number of trips per week.  This week I kept it to two.

First, I went to Wegman’s.  The primary purchase was to replenish the milk supply, but I picked up our other needs at the same time.  Apparently the Tuesday after New Year’s is not a good time to shop at Wegman’s.  Many departments were bare, including cereal which could easily have been stocked before the holiday.  Another person in the store commented to me about this also.  As a result, I ended up not getting everything on my list.

Later in the week I went to BJs.  Most of these items had store coupons.  I also topped up our milk and bread supplies.

This may not play out exactly as planned, but here’s what I have in mind.  Nothing is particularly perishable so if things move around a bit it will be fine.

Saturday:
Chicken & walnuts
Rice
Peas

Sunday:
Take out pizza for those of us who were actually home

Monday:
Tacos

Tuesday (we have an evening activity to work around):
Kids: Chicken nuggets
Adults: Homemade pizza

Wednesday:
Chicken pot pie
Green beans

Thursday:
Spaghetti & meatballs

Friday:
Kids: Eggs
Adults: Homemade pizza
