Making a grocery list today. Trying to come up with some meal ideas for then next couple of weeks. Isn't it funny how it's so easy to get in a rut with the food in your house? At least for me it is. I feel like we always have the same things over and over.
And isn't it funny how we buy the same things every time? I mean, yeah, we want to buy the things we know our family likes and eats (especially with kids), but so much of it is just habit. It's nice to mix it up a little once in awhile.
So what's on your grocery list?
Do you shop for what's on sale or just get what you need?
Better yet, what are some brand names that you just can't live without... you know, yeah store brands are usually cheaper, but sometimes generic or whatever's on sale just doesn't do it for you.
For us, some of our only one brand items would be
Kraft Mac & Cheese (cuz it's the cheesiest you know),
Jif peanut butter (creamy only),
Mrs. Butterworths syrup (store brands can just be so watery or flat tasting),
and Pampers diapers (I found everything else just leaked -or didn't keep the load contained- too easily. By the time Sawyer came around I never even tried anything else anymore. Keep the coupons coming, cuz Pampers are it for my babies.).
What are the brands you splurge on (or hoard coupons for) just because you think they're worth the extra money?
