Happy Monday! Did you have a glorious weekend? We were sunny but cold here, but still a lot of fun crammed in! I spent all day Saturday in Charlotte for the Influence Conference, where I FINALLY got to meet my meal planning partner-in-crime Whitney from Come Home for Comfort! We had a great time. More to come on Friday.
This week I’m trying out something new! Harris Teeter (the fancier, pricier of the grocery store chains in our area) offers a service for online ordering and a drive-through pick up, all for just $5! I have had so many local friends rave about the service, and with a new baby coming, it seemed like it might be a great option for busy weeks.
I planned out my menu as normal, and then just clicked around online selecting my items. The handy thing? You can see the sales and compare prices really easily! There is also a running total in the corner of your screen so you can easily adjust products and quantities if you’re hitting your grocery budget max.
One of the easiest ways for me to blow a budget at the grocery store is to impulse buy. This will ABSOLUTELY prevent me from that. So handy!
If this works, I may need to tweak my shopping strategy slightly… TBD. But looking forward to sharing how it goes. Maybe there is a similar service in your area??
For this week’s menu, it’s heavy on the Asian flavors… don’t know why… it was just speaking to me. Maybe because we’ve been eating quite a bit of Thai lately since a new restaurant opened up down the road.
