I've broken my list down into three separate sections since some items are a weekly or bi-weekly purchase because they spoil, or, like the items on my staples list, they are things that are shelf-stable and they often last for more than a month.
My monthly shopping list covers the ingredients I purchase to prep our 30 days of dinners. What is listed are the items I will always buy. If there is a great sale on turkey or a nice roast, I will pick that up. The same goes for seasonal produce. My weekly shopping list is also added to the monthly, to cover those necessities for that week.
Monthly Shopping List
Lean Beef (Occasionally)
Dehydrated Okra (if you have never had some - try, better than chips and a great energy pick-me-up)
Trail mix (bought from dried goods store, not the kind with M&M's and sugar)
I have a salad every day for lunch at work. I haven't yet found a way to make spinach or tomatoes last a full month. Carrots I buy weekly because I go through the biggest bag my grocery store carries in a week and a half. I try to keep my fridge from filling up to much. We also consume close to 2 gallons of milk a week as well as 2-3 cartons of eggs.
Unsweetened Almond Milk
Bread for Husband
This list is something I have to have because of where I live. Most of the Gluten Free flours or baking necessities are not available in my town. When I drive to the "big city" I have this list on me and I will stock up.
Tomorrow I'll share a few of my chicken preps for once a month cooking!
