My grocery haul posts are usually following one of the monthly shopping trips my daughter and I do together. Our last grocery haul was February 7th and we won’t be doing our March trip until the 28th. I do still have a lot of staples and frozen items on hand and could make do with just some fresh produce and dairy. However, since we are doing a 1950s menu this week I needed to go shopping for that.
Sunday evening I went to Aldi and got everything I’ll need for this week. I already had a small roast and some ground beef in the freezer. We won’t use all of the produce, milk, cereal, bread or eggs I bought so this haul should see us through until our big shopping trip on the 28th.

An Aldi Grocery Haul

- crushed pineapple (1 can)
- organic tomato paste (1 can)

- organic bananas (one bunch)
- iceberg lettuce

That’s by far the most I’ve ever spent at Aldi in a single visit but I usually just fill in between my monthly shopping trips. Plus this 1950s menu plan uses a lot more meat than we usually eat in a week. I can already see that it’s providing plenty of leftovers for lunches, though. Last night I made spaghetti and meatballs for dinner. We had enough leftovers to send with David and Chris for lunch today plus I filled two containers which I’m taking to my parents for their dinner tonight. I’m pretty sure we’ll have leftovers from almost every meal on the menu this week.
