Over the last few years I have struggled to keep up with everything. It seems like as my kids get older, every year my life gets a little busier. This year we went from having 2 kids in sports to having 3 kids in sports… Let me tell you, with only 2 parents this presents a whole new set of challenges when it comes to managing the schedules. :)
In all the craziness of life, I noticed that I was missing the simple things… The Things I knew helped me, but because they weren’t on the urgent, or has to be done “Right Now” list they just kept getting pushed aside.
If I’m being honest, we were feeling the stress of me letting those little things go.
You see I am a true believer in systems, I know that if I have the right systems in place in our home things run smoothly. What I quickly realized was that my system was broken.
- I didn’t always have time to get to the grocery store and spend an hour grocery shopping (And bagging all my own groceries, I’m looking at You Walmart)
- I didn’t always get my menu plan done before I went to the store… well because life was busy (see above)
- I wasn’t planning ahead for dinner so we were eating out WAY TOO MUCH!
Can you relate?
I knew I needed a simple option, a system for menu planning so I didn’t have to think about it as often and I wasn’t running through the drive thru at the last minute on the way home from practice!
That’s why I developed the Grocery Pick Up Meal Plans!
Because I needed an EASY Solution, to a simple problem. I needed something that helped me simplify my Menu Planning Routine! I wanted a plan that gave us great family friendly options (There’s even a Low-Carb Version) and detailed shopping lists so that all I had to do was go online and order my groceries!
And it Worked!
I’ve been using these Grocery Pick Up Meal Plans for the last few months and it’s LIFE CHANGING!
All I have to do is go online, order my groceries from my favorite store and drive in and they load everything in my car! It’s SO EASY!
I timed it out one week and it took me around 10 minutes to add all the items to my cart on my laptop (While watching my favorite show on TV) and then it took me around 5 minutes to pick up my groceries!!!
No more stressing about what to eat for dinner, running in and out of the grocery store without a plan, or spending hours shopping and over buying! These 6 Week Grocery Pick Up Meal Plans have detailed menu plans, shopping lists and all the recipes, so I’m not searching around for new ideas all the time, and we don’t feel like we’re eating the same 3 recipes every week! It’s an easy no-thought solution that has simplified my menu planning and grocery shopping routine!
Plus, as an added bonus when I do have time to hit up Aldi then I just take my shopping list with me and grab all the items I need, it’s still one less step I have to think about and I can save money by taking advantage of Aldi’s great prices!
How I plan My Meals Around My Week!
I did a quick Facebook Live Video about this the other day, but one of the things I always do is I plan my menu around my week. So even though I know what meals we will eat during the week, I normally plan which meal to eat each night based on our busy schedule.
For Example: If I know we have Gymnastics, Baseball, and Basketball all on the same night (Hello, Thursday’s! I am looking at you) I almost always plan a slow cooker meal, or something I can prep ahead of time for those nights! That way we have everything ready when we walk in the door tired and hungry!

I always pick a time slot that fits my schedule so I grabbed my groceries when I was already driving by the store which took me only 5 minutes extra in my day – Seriously LIFE CHANGING right there!
(Also, side note it was rainy that day which is an added bonus because this sweet guy loaded my groceries and I never got out of the car!)
