Life is ever-changing (said the mom who suddenly has
ten eleven kids). I’ve evolved and adapted the way I grocery shop to make it work better for our family situation. Here’s an update on our grocery budget and on my favorite places to grocery shop!
First, my favorite places to grocery shop right now:
1. Costco and Sam’s
Read here about what I like to buy at Costco and Sam’s. I typically spend $500-$800 each month at these stores.
I’m not sure how I ever lived without this!! I absolutely love that I can shop online for any of the groceries we need, schedule a time, then all I have to do is go pick it up! This has been a tremendous help during this season of our lives! I spend around $250 each month using Walmart Pick-Up. Most of this is fresh fruits and vegetables to get us through until I can make it back to Costco. And also ice cream. #priorities
I only get a few items now from Azure Standard, but I do like ordering from them what I have a hard time finding from other places. And I love that it is delivered right to my town!
I spend about $60 there each month on average. Here are some of the items I like to buy from Azure.
Costco and Sam’s are typically less expensive than Amazon, yet I still really love that cases of groceries can be delivered to my door! Here’s what I often include in my Amazon Subscribe and Save order. I spend about $50 each month this way.

And that’s that! How about you? What are your favorite ways to shop for groceries?
