52 Weeks of Groceries: Week Three

We’re into WEEK THREE of my Grocery List series! How are your meals and grocery trips shaping up now that you’ve been doing it for a couple of weeks? Any good recipes you’ve made with the groceries beyond what I’ve shared? I’d love to know what you’re cooking up!

You can also snag the previous grocery lists here (hint: bookmark this link and you’ll have tons of grocery lists to choose from as the weeks go by!)

A few reminders I’ll probably post for you every single week just in case anyone is hopping in for the first time:

  • I typically only grocery shop for 5 days of the week. I used to do a full 7 days and ended up wasting a lot of food, so I cut it down to 5! If you prefer 7, make sure to add enough for leftovers or additional meals.

  • Don’t forget…many of my staple items will NOT be included on the list each week (otherwise, you’d end up with a lifetime supply of some of those items!), so bookmark this staples list and only purchase those items when you’re low or completely out.

  • I also created a spice rack for you! These are many of my favorite spices (and the actual brands I use!) to create new meals with the same ingredients. I’ll be adding to this one pretty frequently, so make sure you bookmark this one, too!

  • These grocery lists are created for 2 adults, so if you have additional mouths to feed, take that into consideration!

This week, I really wanted to have some warm, cozy recipes planned as we dive into November and the start of the holiday season. I try to make sure I still include plenty of fresh produce in my comfort meals, too, which you’ll see this week! And after you save this week’s grocery list, make sure to scroll on down to the bottom where I’m sharing one of the recipes from this week’s menu!
