Our bigger grocery haul for the month – we found organic beef for $3.99/lb, 39-cent yogurt, and 99-cent coconut milk!

all of the groceries

It’s the beginning of the month! Which means the grocery envelope is full, and I’m ready for our big haul for the month. We will hit Costco for bigger haul, and the rest of the grocery trips this month will be a lot smaller as we stick to our current real food budget and health goals.

In some seasons, we shop Aldi and Costco. Sometimes, it’s the farmer’s market. In a couple of months, our CSA starts. However, right now we have a Kroger less than a mile away, so we swing by there and supplement with Costco and Aldi.

If you prefer to watch, here’s the replay of my live video breaking down what we bought and how much it cost!


Here is what we bought at Kroger:


  • Yogurt – $.39/individual container
