Under $30 Grocery List


Hi all! Here is a 7 day grocery list that I made using the prices from my local HEB (breakfast, lunch, and dinner) for under $30! Of course the list is a little feminine so all my male readers might want to adjust; but I found that it was a very hearty menu.
Here are some tips that helped me with stretching the most food out of my dollar:

  • Each package of ground meat is about 4 servings
  • A package of whole grain pasta is about 7 servings
  • Since bread has more loafs than 1 can finish in a week, than you can easily save it for the next week
  • 1 can of tomato sauce can come at about 5-7 servings...according to which size can you buy
  • The seasoned chicken leg quarters had 4 pieces in it so you could easily eat a piece a day but the the pieces were so big that you could also cut the quarter into 2 so that you have a thigh and a drumstick instead of one HUGE piece. If you decided to divide the quarter, then you can freeze a piece and save it for later
  • The small white potatoes can either be cut into quarters and boiled then seasoned or baked. Since potatoes are starchy, than 1 is enough for a serving...feel free to add more if you'd like
  • If you have a filter (good for you!) or drink tap water, than you can exclude the water bottles and save $2.70
