My older sister, Brigette, shares her shopping trips and menu plans every week! You can go HERE to see all of her weekly menu plans and you can go HERE to read all about her family!

I went back to Lidl again this week. I’ve decided I definitely prefer Aldi overall, but they continue to have major stocking issues in our area. I might have to resign myself to shopping at both Aldi and Lidl on a weekly basis for the time being. Also, someone gifted us with leftover items from a large event, so I already had some staples on hand this week (like milk and bread).
