Trader Joes opened in KC for the first time back in July. We went once to just sort of scope things out and get a feel for the prices. Since we decided to take some money from my husband's unemployment to supplement our $50 week grocery budget, we went to Trader Joes to add some different items to our pantry and fridge. Most of the things that we purchased were priced very well, but we did splurge a little bit on a few things. Regardless, we were SO happy to add some things we haven't had before to our groceries for the week. Overall, I'm not certain that Trader Joes is as cost effective as everyone says, but I'll take the variety it offers. Since we're not eating out these days, we just really needed a change!
Our menu plan for the week is as follows,
Friday - spaghetti with Boboli garlic cheese bread
Saturday - banana peanut butter smoothies / BLTs / smorgasbord
Sunday - banana peanut butter smoothies / bacon tortellini alfredo and salad / smorgasbord
Monday - cereal / packed lunches / cheese enchiladas and veggies
Tuesday - cheesy eggs or cereal / packed lunches / calzones and veggies
Wednesday - cereal / packed lunches / breakfast burritos
Thursday - cheesy eggs or cereal / packed lunches / smorgasbord
Friday - cereal / packed lunches / something from next week's groceries
Snacks will include - whole wheat pumpkin muffins (if I can find the time to make them,) fruit, yogurt, cottage cheese and chips and dip.
