My older sister, Brigette, shares her shopping trips and menu plans every week! You can go HERE to see all of her weekly menu plans and you can go HERE to read all about her family!

Our original plan was just to buy a few things at Walmart since it’s close by. However, we ended up justifying a trip to Aldi a couple of days later. I’m really glad we did, because there were some crazy low, unadvertised produce prices, as well as cheap milk!
