Grocery shopping on a Dave Ramsey inspired zero-base budget can be tasty if it’s a budget grocery haul. This grocery haul for one is a monthly grocery haul on a budget. Made much easier by meal planning for one and grocery shopping on a budget. My secret to success is meal prep and budget grocery shopping.

What I eat in a day is coming up! If you have any questions leave them in the comments below.

this beautiful colorful basket I'm so excited about all these hello and welcome back to my channel my name is Stacy flowers and I am a student of Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace University and on a journey to become a 100% debt-free my current debt is over one hundred and eighty three thousand dollars I am on baby step number two to repay 100 percent of my debts I earn an income of anywhere between 1,500 and 2,000 dollars on average a month working part-time and running my company quarter time in this video I'm going to be sharing with you my July 2018 grocery haul so if you are interested in that please keep watching let's take a look at what I have here in the cabinet I've been starting a little bit of work on organizing my pantry I got a gift card from Target and so I bought these although I don't think that they're going to be large enough and I think I'm just going to switch over to a hundred percent mason jars but I have a little bit of black beans I have a little bit of quinoa rice this is the last amount of my oats I have angel hair pasta that I purchased to make homemade ramen noodles I still have my banana rings that I just have not even from my last grocery haul and then I have a couple of broth and so let's talk about the broth really quick because a lot of you guys suggested bouillon cubes and when I first moved in I went I got beef and chicken yes beef and chicken bullion cubes and I put it in my red beans and I put it in my black beans and it was absolutely delicious however what happened was is I was out myself like every time I would eat like a bowl cuz you know I have it for like lunch and dinner so like I eat it a lot but every time I would eat it I would get overwhelmingly tired like even when I would eat it at work oh god why am I so tired why am I so tired enough let me look at my ingredients and when I looked at the bullion cubes there is soy but I can't remember how I don't know if it's a soy oil or soy bean I'm not 100% for sure but I just my body doesn't have a good reaction to soy so I can't use bullion cubes with soy in it and I haven't found young-kyu that doesn't have soy in it so if you guys have a recommendation I'm totally open to not using these to save money but I think people this is just something people will say oh you can get that cheaper at this place and you're right but you have to ask yourself why is it cheaper at other places it's not always just cheaper at other places because one store you know branding and marketing and it's organics sometimes it's cheaper because they're using lower quality products in addition to the thing so like for example like seasonings like sometimes when you're purchasing seasonings you're not just purchasing that seasoning you're purchasing that seasoning but they blend up other things that are tasteless but like provide the bulk so that would be my recommendation it's just I understand that there are a thousand ways to make my grocery shopping even less expensive than what it is at fifty dollars a month but me making some of those decisions winds up being the wrong decision for me because there are products that I don't want to consume and in me purchasing something cheaper I'm unintentionally consuming those products for example the bulan cubes where you can get like ten versions of this box of broch but in you getting those ten versions you're also getting the who humping of soy and if you don't eat soy you know that becomes a problem so I have chicken broth I have beef broth and then here I have some coconut bases and I'm a little bit of popcorn summarising corn mill rice flour a bread crumb with baking soda our seasonings I'm doing pretty good with seasonings have smoked paprika I have a little time ground cumin ground cinnamon pepper lemon pepper adobo this is I still have tons of that tumeric left bay leaves and a piece off from my auntie and then here in the cabinet sort of the same things the olive oil from May grapeseed oil and most of these things really aren't going down because I haven't really been cooking I haven't been cooking at home because it is really hot but also last month is my birthday month and I went out quite a lot so that's what having the cabinet let's take a look in the free refrigerator so in the refrigerator I have some celery but this is going to be turned into vegetable stock because it's just I left it in here too long these carrots may still be good so I may pull those and turn those into some snacks some sweet peppers which I'm super excited about did buy a little bit of kale I don't like the prepackaged kale I'm gonna finish eating it but I don't like the prepackaged kale I have a container of red beans a container of black beans little coconut milk that's leftover in a water pitcher not particularly satisfied with that water pitcher I'm so I likely will switch that out little bit of banana peppers have some red roasted peppers a little bit of almond milk and a little salad dressing and I'm running out of this is a little bit of frozen kale that's from that bag just because I knew I wasn't going to eat through it because I don't really like it very much but I don't want to waste it I don't know if you can freeze kale and maintain its nutrients but we shall see peas and a little bit of corn left so there are quite a few things that I will be getting from the grocery store today and yeah so there are quite a few things that will I'll be getting from the grocery store and I will also be getting some like mason jars to store things because I really want to switch over to not using as much plastic since I'm in my own home so let's go to the grocery store so I had all the plans and all the plans were to go to three different stores and then out of nowhere I don't even know if you guys can hear me but out of nowhere this brain came out of no way what I took my Mecca and I've been in the car now [Applause] these are a little darker one of the things that I am trying to figure out is how to cut all soy ouch I don't know if you guys can see that but the second ingredient second or first ingredient for most of all these male is soybean oil and I don't respond very well to soy so I'm gonna try this is the only one that I've found that doesn't have soy oil listed as an ingredient so I'll let you guys know this brand may actually be better I found another one that doesn't have soy in it from him but this has eggs in it and I prefer to not have eggs they make me a little sluggish but this one here is specifically says no GMO and egg free so I actually think we're going to go with this Mayo I'm kind of stoked about that a little closer and right here I don't know if you guys can see that it says it may contain soy and I'm thinking that that is because of where it's manufactured you know how like sometimes things are manufactured near each other which for me may contain soy is way better than soybean oil being the first ingredient so I'm gonna go ahead and try this and this speed the booty some wholefoods chickpeas red pepper flakes red beans popcorn oats and black bean I'm at the last store and I have my little bag with my cash envelopes out these are my original cash envelopes from Dave Ramsey and I'm at the third store today and I have you can see that in there I have 25 dollars left to get me some vegetables which primarily decorates my bases of oatmeal and beans every single day and quinoa this budget is $50 but I do think that I'm gonna increase my grocery budget to 75 right now I'm just in the habit of shopping at 50 and until I get a little bit more comfortable with my kitchen I don't want to waste so you guys saw when I was looking through my kitchen that and I mean technically it won't go to waste but I have carrots i have celery and a couple of peppers that went bad and I don't like that so I don't want that to happen and for that reason the other 25 if I do use it in this budget I'll just use it later on in the month if it comes up but if it doesn't then you know fifty dollars it is so let's go see beautiful color Pro basket I'm so excited about all these green I'm a pineapple and peaches so you guys can see that on the ground there this is what I got for my fifty dollar grocery haul with the exception of the mason jars because those were part of my household pantry that I got um because she's very hot all those stairs I got those so that I could make my to go salads but also so that could fill out my pantry so I'm kind of super pumped about that it is much much later in the day you can't really tell because it's been raining and whatnot but it's super hot so I am going to first watch them sorry guys I'm going to who first I feel like my my face is falling off me okay I'm gonna first wash my mason jars just a little I can as I'm preparing food I literally have a place to be able to put the food in and then I'm gonna show you guys what I got so this is July's summers grocery calls and I'll start down here I got my thing of almond milk got a very large container of strawberries this and this came from Walmart as well as this celery came from Walmart and it's funny that I have so much celery I'm not really a celery fan but it seasons things well and I'm making a lot of like cold salads like cauliflower salad and pasta salad and stuff like that and it seasons it really well I got a 1 bunch of spinach have a head of romaine lettuce I got two things of golden beets so this has two on it this has three on it got a pineapple I've got three stalks of our three heads of corn on the cob yellow pepper orange pepper red pepper green pepper these red pepper flakes are from Whole Foods I have three yellow onions because I'm still eating onion rings but also seasoning two peaches a head of cauliflower some rotini noodles tricolor for my pasta salad mustard garlic and this just Mayo and again this is gonna be for my pasta salad as well as for my cauliflower salad and then from Whole Foods I got red beans black beans red pepper flakes popcorn oatmeal and a little bit of gum bark the chickpea so now it's time to put all these dishes so what I'm doing in this jar is I'm just taking this celery that has died I'm washing it and I and I'm just chopping it up a little bit and I'm putting it in here because I'm going to and I wish I would have got to it just a little sooner but what I'm gonna do is when I get ready to make my vegetable broth I'm gonna use these veggie scraps in the vegetable broth so I put everything away we'll bring a couple of strawberries my pineapple will sit here a peaches here my corn on the cob here we look in the fridge you have my almond milk down here but this is what the fridge looks like the kale snacks are there this here is spinach it's just strawberry and then that's lettuce back there etc etc and then we go to the freezer oh there was something I forgot to show you guys I had sweet potatoes down here I keep forgetting that I have sweet potatoes down there so just so you know have sweet potatoes then we have what the pantry looks like here for the most part everything up here is the same I just move things up that's the red beans that I got from Whole Foods and this behind here leftover black beans and some new my onions are here this is a little piece of garlic old popcorn etc so this is where we are right yeah amazing super fantastic spectacular people that is my July 2018 these are so sweet grocery haul it was a very difficult one to film but I'm glad I did it I'm glad I've been able to find my mason jars so that is all that I have for you to them thank you so much for watching until next time I watch you all this

hey guys it's Jen welcome back to my channel and welcome back to another grocery haul and meal plan so this Saturday this Saturday it is not Saturday it is Sunday this Sunday is 9:30 in the morning and I'm here at Aldi I haven't been to all day for a few weeks and I always miss it when I don't go because there's just so much great stuff there that I can get for so much cheaper I will probably have to go tidy after this because one of the recipes that I'm cooking at today is for a slow cooker like the Mexican pork and it calls for dried chilies now they might have dried chilies here I'm not sure if I I'm thinking they might but I'm not for sure and so if they don't have those I'll have to go to hyvee but either way I will show you when I get home what I got and what the meal plan is for this week all right so here's a look at everything I got from Aldi and then I just picked up a few things from Walmart so I spent 123 dollars at Aldi and $10 at Walmart so 133 total which I thought was pretty good I did get some cherries I always like to get these when they are fresh and in season we all love them Adam especially loves them so I'll wash those up and we can have them for snacks and put them in lunches I got some lemons some limes that's my favorite place to get lemons and limes is that Aldi they're really good quality and they are cheaper there I grab some red grapes some Gala apples we were totally out of apples and we like to cut those up and eat them with like peanut butter or sometimes in like a homemade lunchable I got some red bell peppers there's a couple recipes I need those with two pounds of strawberries the kids love these cars so strawberries are his favorite fruit so we can go through those quick in no time I grabbed some blueberries for this Mexican pork that I'm gonna make for supper tonight I needed some Chili Peppers and they did end up having the ancho chilies at all these so I got those there and then I got the pasilla chilies at Walmart which I'll show you here in a second I grab wine English cucumber a head of cauliflower I'm gonna make mashed cauliflower as a side with dinner tomorrow two zucchinis for zoodles two mangoes for a mango salsa some garlic to have on hand for recipes and avocado for the crockpot pork tacos that I'm making for tonight there's also a recipe that called for prosciutto I actually really like to get that at Aldi because it's good quality and it's cheap there I think this was a Linux 329 or something like that if you got a high V and get this it's gonna be like six dollars probably so they have the best price there I am also going to be making some salmon with mate with the mango salsa and so I just grabbed a small portion of that some eggs for the crockpot pork tacos I grabbed a boneless pork roast this is almost four pounds for eight dollars and 43 cents so that's a pretty good price for that I need to get that in the crock-pot soon probably if we're gonna eat that for supper tonight okay I didn't grab too much she's just one block of pepper jack I like to cut this up and have it with Triscuits for a snack I also got some white cheddar I thought I would cut that up and do like some snack packs with the grapes so grapes and white cheddar are really good together and the kids liked that too I got some turkey pepperoni we like to have this on hand for snack Sakura also it likes to make turkey and pepperoni sandwiches for her lunches so that's what we use that for and then if we make like a quick pizza or anything like that this turkey breast I get it from Aldi quite a bit and it's really good it's just they're specially selected oven roasted turkey breast and then for tacos tonight in quesadillas and whatever else I just got some of the Mexican style cheese I got Parmesan cheese for a recipe some milk which we've already used part of because Connors eating cereal and also some apple peach applesauce the kids take these in their lunch I got some corn tortillas from Aldi we will not obviously use all these for dinner tonight there's 30 in there but corn tortillas freeze really well and I freeze them often and then if I want to make enchiladas or do like any kind of meal prep that includes corn tortillas I can just take them out of the freezer and thaw them out and they work great I got some Aldi Triscuits these are actually pretty pretty decent I love Triscuits I'm probably the only one in the house that likes them but for a good generic substitute the old e brand is pretty good and then my old II has started carrying the parmesan crisps and these are good on salads or on top of soups or even just for a snack so I grabbed a bag of those two tribes I got some salty nat crackers for soup let's see okay so I was totally out of white vinegar you guys know that I used this to wash my produce and then sometimes recipes call for it so I grabbed one of those there's a couple recipes that I'm gonna cook this week that needed white wine so I just got this bottle of Chardonnay from Aldi it was like $8 I think a can of Rotel for a recipe or whatever the generic version of that is a couple different cans of soup for Adam he likes to take those to work sometimes with the salad so I got the chicken and wild rice and the grilled chicken and sausage gumbo I got diced tomatoes for a recipe chipotle peppers in adobo okay so I've made a video what was it I can't remember now Chipotle I think I say to pull teh and I think that's wrong I think it's Chipotle so I'll try I'll try to say it right chipotle peppers tell me if I'm saying it right okay I got a bunch of comments on that okay I got some peanut butter cup ice cream I'm pretty sure this was like the halo top I'm not like necessarily a huge ice cream fan but I thought I would give this a try I've had some flavors of halo top before some are really good some are not in my opinion my favorite flavor of halo top is the lemon but anyway I thought I would give that a try this is sesame oil and I was happy to find this at Aldi this will be for a stir-fry recipe I'm almost out of it I keep I keep my sesame oil in the fridge because that's what I was always told to keep it from going rancid let me know if you do the same I grabbed a six-pack of the unsweetened tea is for Adam he likes to take this to work and have it in his office fridge to drink there I got some cherry fruit and grain bars these are like the nutrigrain bars and the kids like those for breakfast once in a while and then they had a couple different specialty chips so they had these horseradish cheddar and then they also had a buffalo blue cheese which I really thought we could try the buffalo but Adam hates blue cheese I like it but he hates it and so I was like I'm not gonna buy a whole bag of chips that you know I'm the only person that's gonna eat it so I just ended up getting these horseradish cheddar hopefully those are good and then I really like all these paper towels we're out almost out of paper towels right now and so I just went ahead and gotten the six pack I think these are really good quality they're Selecta sighs personally I can't tell the difference too much between these and bounty and they're a lot cheaper okay and then also at Aldi I got a huge pack of Lucroy I've been liking to drink that over ice with a squeeze of lime especially in the summer I think it's super refreshing and then we needed some garbage bags for the garage so Aldi had these so I just went ahead and got them there and then these are the only things that I got from Walmart so I had forgotten to get bananas so I grabbed some of those for a store for our recipe I needed water chestnuts I only need one can but I figured I would just get a couple wow just wow so I figured I would get to Kansas to have one in the pantry I got some ginger I was gonna get just regular like ginger root and grade it myself but I had quite a few recipes that needed it this weekend so I figured I'll just get those squeeze tube and I'll be more convenient okay got some pasilla chilies they had a huge display of all kinds of like chilies and spices at Walmart which might want my Walmart anyway is new and so I took advantage of that I got some Mexican oregano this was really cheap like around 60 cents and then also obviously the pasilla chilies so let me grab my meal planner and I will show you what I'm going to make this week so my plan this week is to do some pretty heavy cooking like at the beginning of the week and then the rest of the week we can have leftovers or sandwiches or just eat whatever out of the refrigerator so I was gonna make eggs benedict for breakfast this morning but I was too lazy and so I just ended up making biscuits and some bacon and eggs for lunch today I am planning on trying this locale fettuccine alfredo recipe from foodnetwork.com and we're gonna use that for lunch with zoodles and I have some shrimp in the freezer so hopefully that's good I can link this recipe down below and then for dinner I'm making these slow cooker pork tacos this will be in a separate recipe video that I'm collaborating with Mandy from Manny in the making on so you'll see that you probably have already seen that by the time you've seen this video but this is what I needed all the chilies for and stuff and then with that I'm gonna just cut up like you know fix things for tacos and maybe like chips and salsa on Monday tomorrow I am making this Giada De Laurentiis recipe for a Roman style chicken it's like a chicken sauteed with prosciutto there's peppers in there garlic diced tomatoes white wine and capers I thought it sounded really good and we're gonna have that with mashed cauliflower on Tuesday I have home chef coming so that's going to be bruschetta chicken green beans and potatoes and then like I said the rest of the week will just eat leftovers so I'm also going to meal prep today is chicken and broccoli stir-fry this is also a food network recipe I can link that down below and oh and then the salmon with the mango salsa is going to be another meal prep that I'm going to make today all right so that is it for today's grocery haul and meal plan I was glad to get back to Aldi I always like going back there and I just feel like they're getting so many more items the list of things that I have to go somewhere else to get is getting smaller and smaller so that's good when I go to all the I definitely save money and it's definitely one of my favorite grocery stores so thank you so much for watching and I will see you in my next video bye

hey guys we're at Aldi again we're completely out of like everything so it's going to be a pretty big grocery haul I'm about to get my cart just put a little quarter in there you do get your quarter back now at the end a lot of people were like why did you have to order food carts to get it back that's one of the ways they cut prices also yes I say algae and I'm saying it my whole life like that so I'm not going to change it you can say algae like that or I'll be up to you Yolo all right so I've noticed that most Aldi's as soon as you walk in have like some to go drinks and like little snack packs and things like that and then it usually starts with the produce so here I'm kind of pondering for over a minute because I'm trying to find organic produce a lot of times they will have organic but I feel like they sell out pretty quickly just because their prices are so amazing I loved grabbing this big giant bag of garlic just because we use in so many recipe is it was just easier to just go ahead and grab that I also got grapes blueberries and strawberries but if you miss anything don't worry at the end of this video I'm going to do a little haul and I also want to tell you right away that this giant grocery shop I only spent $130 which is one of the main reasons that I really love Aldi I always grab their bag salads as well as our spinach for smoothies I get their butter lettuce and that is my favorite to put into just like the lunch salads and things like that we also just cut this up and use it for the lettuce on our tacos you will see I get a lot of produce and that's because I have toddlers and we go through produce like crazy in my house and one of our favorite things are just mangoes we use it just for snacks that we also like to make mango salsa I have a video on my channel for our fresh mango salsa as well that's a big hit also I want to mention that these little produce bags are from Young Living the bread here is so inexpensive it's 67 cents like you really can't beat that I also like to grab a lot of snacks er these little snack packs this whole giant package was under $5 they're just great for summertime like on-the-go you know little car rides or Beach trips things like that I also always get these dried fruit packs because my kids love these they love the apple and pear the most but they only had apples this time over here I just grabbed some fresh date salsa they had an organic version so when they do have organic I do choose that we're not like a hundred percent organic in any way but when there's a healthier organic option I like to grab that especially because this was only like 20 cents more speaking of non-organic I crept to Bob Evans mashed potatoes we like those for my easy shepherd's pie a lot of you know that recipe and I also just grabbed some of these tortellinis to throw in with some sauce the kids love that those little toy storage animals were a hit at Carter's birthday party and then this was a new find for us this was a Greek yogurt cream cheese spread and this was just for me nobody else will eat it in my house because they like the Philadelphia Cream Cheese but I love it because it has more protein and it's made with Greek yogurt and I've had the salmon here multiple times and it's always been delicious we've never had a problem with the salmon and it's for a great price we're also going to go ahead and grab a couple packets of chicken thighs and you can stay tuned until the end of this video and I will show you what I made with them in the crock-pot and we also just picked up some ground turkey the next thing I grabbed was this uncared bacon I've never used this bacon before I usually get there like I think it's called like light and fit or something like that their brand of turkey bacon until I realized that it says like mechanically separated on the back and then that's when I stopped buying it now I'm just grabbing some shredded cheese we're getting Mexican cheese and mozzarella cheese we always have these on stock I got plain Greek yogurt for overnight oats and then I got cottage cheese for my protein pancakes and now I'm just gonna go ahead and grab some milk and eggs next I'm gonna check out the frozen aisle and the only thing I got from this section was these veggie burgers I've had them before and they're really good random but I saw this on the side this toy story for cereal I did not purchase it though um we got some brown rice and we also got some corn tortillas and of course we have to stock up on juice I have to beg my kids to drink regular water so I just put a little bit of apple juice in their water cups and that's how they drink their drinks so it's like a quarter of apple juice and all the rest water but otherwise they don't usually drink water one of the reasons I fell in love with Aldi was because of their huge gluten-free selection I was really disappointed today I'm not gonna lie this is not my normal Aldi but they didn't have any bread or any bagels so that was a big bummer because now I have to go to a different store to get bagels and bread but we did pick up some of their gluten-free macaroni and cheese and if you have never had these chips you have to have them they are the best they are the gluten free sweet chili chips the babies section here is pretty awesome too I grabbed a lot of yogurt milk because they get sold out really quickly and my kids eat like one bag per sitting and they are the cheapest here they're almost like three dollars out of our regular grocery store and I also really like their pouches I know a lot of people have said things about Aldi pouches that like I think there was like one article that showed mold in them but these pouches are see-through don't worry I picked it up off the floor one of my favorite things about Aldi is like the two random aisles they always have a really super random stuff I found tons of great things in these aisles before they always have like some good candles some home decor that's super affordable I've even gotten organizers from here pool things for the kids like outdoor activities for them Tupperware cupcake tins I've gotten so many really cool things here for really inexpensive but I'll show you all the things that they had that I thought were really cute I love these little galvanized tins I did not buy any of them but I think they would be really cute for home decor a slushy maker I also really wanted to buy this and of course I wanted to buy this it's like an iced coffee brewing system yes please give me all of the coffee even had an ice maker I did grab this because I really need one of these they're like little clip-on strainers I like the little potato peeler potato scrubber what else did they have that I really thought was cute they did have something like Toy Story 4 things here as well but we just had Carter's birthday party so we didn't need any of that stuff I thought this tumbler was really good but also I really don't need that as well and then like some I home speakers and just honestly like the most random but coolest things I thought this beach towel was adorable but I refrained I wanted the doughnut and the little watermelon the pool is perfect for young kids but we already have one tons of little floats and cute things like that here there were sprinklers and slip and slides they even had these UV shirts which are great for your kiddos and now it's time to check out which always gives me anxiety because they are so fast bringing you up that it's crazy there's usually only one person working the register too so it just makes me extra anxious but it's all worth it because to get all of these items for 130 dollars is like incredible when I go to my regular grocery store I spent at least 200 I also wanted to mention that I did get a case of water we are not using our water filtration system right now just because they've been doing like work on our water in our neighborhood and I seriously just don't trust it and it freaks me out seriously that was the fastest shop I've ever done been about to kick up Carter vacation look at this guy see look right here stick it in she said get your quarterback and here is just a little overview of everything that we got in case you missed it like I had mentioned we were in a really big rush because we had to get my son Carter from preschool so I feel like I might have missed telling you about some of the items that I got but again I feel like this was all a really great deal [Applause] [Applause] and here is just a it's super easy chicken taco crock pot meal literally put some chicken thighs in some salsa and a packet of taco seasoning and that is it four hours on high or eight hours on low and it is delicious and I hope that you all

and welcome back to my channel my name is Stacey flowers and I'm a student of Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace University and I'm on a journey to become a 100% debt free in my starting debt is one hundred and eighty four thousand six hundred and seventy seven dollars and twenty seven cents I am currently on baby step number one to save five hundred dollars and that's because my income is under twenty thousand dollars a year I work part-time and I earn anywhere between one thousand and twelve hundred dollars a month in this video I am going to show you all a grocery haul and I am spending for the month a fifty dollar grocery budget many people ask how I'm able to keep my grocery budget so small and part is because I shop for one person and then two it's because I do a lot of planning so if you are interested in seeing all that I'm able to buy with my monthly grocery budget please stay tuned so the first thing that I do whenever I am preparing for my grocery haul is I check my cabinets just to sort of see where my stock is that so I'm going to show you guys a little bit of what that looks like before I make a list I always go to the grocery store with a list and whatnot so this is my seasoning cabinet and um these are like oils and stuff and here's some seasonings down here I'm pre did this before I came on here so I already know but I would like pull something out like this this is smoked paprika I use this a lot to season my vegetables so I know I need some smoked paprika I come over here to this cabinet which is kind of like my main cabinet and I sort of like check the stock that I have here and these are just bags this for storage um I'm gonna switch them out to mason jars but like this is like self-rising flour this is corn starch I have some pancake mix so like you see how low my pancake mix is I know I'm gonna need to get some more pancake mix come up to my second shelf these right now I have mung beans and I have Black Eyed Peas but I don't have any other beans left so I'm gonna get some beans this is kelp this is a seasoning it probably should be on the seasoning side I need some more coconut oil I'm down to one box of broth I'm trying to keep that up there one box of broth so I know I need to get more broth then I have a bag of quinoa which is good I'm good on quinoa I have two different bags of rice that's because this rice is amazing and I didn't know that rice is okay but this rice is amazing so but I'm if you see I'm doing pretty good on rice and then I have my super large bag of non-gmo popcorn which is like the basic snack so I look in here to see just what needs to be restocked or oh I'm sorry I'm bringing the camera close to my face I'm sorry just to see what needs to be restocked and then after I look at what needs to be restocked I come here and I actually just make a very easy grocery list and so just put my budget up there and then the seasonings that I need to Merrik smoked paprika garlic the beans that I need to replace the broth stocks and bases that I need and then some of the veggies that I'm gonna get and then other things I do look in my refrigerator I try to buy my fruits and vegetables the week that I'm not even really fruits but my vegetables the week that I'm gonna use them but if you just look in my refrigerator feeling you can see I'm down to little to nothing over here on the door I keep just a few things some roasted peppers and then there's usually banana peppers here I don't have any right now a little bit of ginger so I'm definitely gonna be getting some banana peppers I probably should organize this a little bit better for you guys but you get the gist then I go to the freezer and in the freezer this shelf is my shelf in the freezer and it's pretty bare but I cook with a lot of fresh fruits and vegetables so that's why but I do have a big bag of mixed vegetables if I'm gonna make some fried rice and then I have a bag of peas I really like peas and then these are some of the freezer meals these are two that are left over from the bags that I froze from my grocery haul for the month of February so I have a bag of quinoa and as you can see this is a pretty big bag so this will probably give me two lunches and a dinner and then here are some black beans which would probably allow me to make a couple of Buddha bowls or or something like that but those are my leftover freezer bags so I just double-check all of that before I head to the store so that that way you know while I'm at the store I'm not over buying or under buying anything and for the most part I re in my mind have ideas of what the meals are gonna be I have a very it's a very simple diet for me everything is about flavor so yeah let's go every time I come it's down this is one this is two this is how good this tumor good every time I come in here there's nothing I'm gonna see if I can get them to ground me up some tumeric because that's all I came here for what tumeric but I have to come to the store with a list because do I want these spiralize beets and yes am I gonna get them no well their vegetables are on sale so I'm gonna get because it was originally 249 a pound for sweet potatoes but I'm gonna go ahead and give me some of these sweet potatoes for a dollar ninety-nine a pound how much they would be in the store I spent $18 and 86 cents which seems like a lot but I got my favorite seasoning that makes me feel amazing and I got for being phases that will turn into meals throughout the month and I got no actually I got two beans that will turn into meals throughout the month then I got chickpeas that will kind of turn into texture for the things that I'm gonna make meals out of and I got a head of spinach and I got some yams so that's gonna be some amazing delicious flavors and I can't wait to show you guys what I do with the rest of my so these sweet potatoes are 69 cents a pound the other ones were a dollar ninety ninety pound so I'm gonna get some potatoes out of here and I'm gonna return the other potatoes these golden beets I'm on the phone with my best friend right now she told me that I'm gonna just be super pumped about them I have never had golden beets before but I love beets probably the most expensive thing in my budget these sweet peppers they are either gonna be she 399 or $4.99 but I love them they're I am back and I'm going to show you all what I was able to get with my girl Sri ha if you noticed I talked about how my Mariano's which is just the basic grocery store that they have here in Chicago how some of the items that I had purchased from Whole Foods they had a cheaper at Mariano's and so I bought them for Mariano's and returned them to Whole Foods so at Whole Foods I got a refund for 8 dollars and 98 cents because I took back the sweet potatoes and the bunch of spinach which is perfect because I believe that that puts me on budget but in the meantime let's take a look at everything that I was able to purchase although it doesn't look like there's much on the table this is gonna turn into several meals for me throughout the month so the big thing that I have are different being so I have red beans I have garbanzo beans or chickpeas and I also have black beans each of these makes several several meals I have a bunch of spinach that I'll be able to use I have a little bit of Brussels sprouts I have golden beets and I also have red beets and then I have one five sweet potatoes and that's these are gonna be amazing I'm super excited about that also have a red onion a white onion for flavoring tumeric and the tumeric goes for flavoring on some of the soups of the beans and the salads that I make as well as the almond milk that excuse me the golden milk that I have in the morning pepper rings because I really like banana peppers I'm gonna have some broth to make sure that gets some seasoning better flavors in my soups and beans have peanut butter which really just serves as a dessert if I'm being 100% honest and then I have a little bit of almond milk that just gives me something to sip on as well as serves as the base for my golden milk in the morning and then I have two how many ounces I have two 2.5 gallons of water the total is the total is 50 to 67 so I'm over budget so I will be returning probably one of these gallons of water and then that will put me right at $50 but if you notice I also returned a couple of items from Whole Foods I'm not above returning things because I rather be on budget so it's 50 to 67 and that probably just happened again because I went to two different stores and bought items at one store that I wasn't originally planning on purchasing and then in me doing the math at my head thinking the calculation would even out it didn't do that so yeah that's what I have for the grocery haul now I kind of want to show you guys because right now when you're looking at everything it looks like nothing but that's also because so much of it isn't prepped so I want to show you some of the preparations that I make so that that way I can actually start enjoying some of the food and so what I'm going to fast forward through quickly and show you guys are just how I would prepare and prepare how I would prepare this food so that that way for the next four weeks I have stuff to munch on and add to my different bootable salads etc etc [Applause] [Applause] looking in the refrigerator I just want to show you guys this real quick short of where the prep goes so you guys know I bought a little bit of water that I'll have these are the beans that I took out from before that I'm going to snack on with the leftover steak that I have there's the almond milk that I purchased that makes sort of my drinks in the morning and then here at the top these are some of the things that I prep so this is the garlic that's the spinach here's some Brussels sprouts here are the diced sweet potatoes I have this sweet potato half that I'm gonna turn into sweet potato toast for breakfast and then I have my sweet peppers back there so I kind of stick with the items that are on this shelf and then the stuff that I have in my pantry know you guys have seen me do my grocery haul we take these out I've been talking to my best friend you guys see me do my grocery haul you've seen me prep red beans kitchen seek red beans and rice that I'm gonna prepare for tomorrow you've seen me prep some garlic you've seen me watch my spinach you've also seen me prepare a little bit of sweet potatoes that I can toss into any of my Buddha bowls for the rest of the week and I hope that that is insightful for you guys just sort of understand how I eat off of right around like thirty to fifty dollars a month and I eat really really hearty flavors I do have a couple of videos coming where I'm going to show you guys what I eat in a day so you can see how these portions work out that's how I go grocery shopping and that's how I prepare my food on the day that the groceries come in the really great way to get the most bang for your buck with any of the food that you're buying whether you're buying the vegetables that you see me buy the beans and the vegetables or you're buying packaged foods is to prepare the food for cooking because I think it's the convenience the lack of convenience is what prevents us from being really economical with our budgets and as you guys see I have rice making I have beans prepared and I have so many vegetables chopped up in pre-washed so it's like literally just grab and go throw things in those are my sweet potatoes that are done now so until next time if you guys like this video give it a thumbs up subscribe to my channel and share it with all your friends if you want to see something specific
