Monthly Shopping – JULY LIST

JULY LIST Icon_edited-1

Here is the MASSIVE grocery list for the month of July MENU. My bill for the whole month (including more than what is here because I bought baking supplies, and other foods for breakfast and lunches) came out to $230 – which is just under $60 a week for two people. Not bad! I also mentioned before that I am on a dairy-free diet, so you won’t see much dairy on this list (I’m not making my hubby go without it!), although some of the recipes do call for it.

You can save on some of these things by purchasing dry beans and cooking them yourself. You can also use this handy Spice Substitution Chart and Herb Substitution Chart to avoid purchasing all of the ones listed. OR…if you want to stock your pantry (like I did this month – another reason my bill was a little high), Kroger sells a variety of spices and herbs for $1 each, while Wal-Mart has a limited collection for .50 each. Something to check into!
