๐Ÿšจ HERE COME THE FOOD POLICE ๐Ÿ‘ฎโ€โ™‚๏ธ $192 WALMART GROCERY HAUL + MEAL PLAN ๐Ÿ›’ MOM IS OUT OF TOWN!



the food police are coming and they're coming in hot hey guys it's Jen welcome back to my channel and welcome back to another grocery haul and meal plan today I am at Walmart I did go to Aldi last week so if you missed that haul actually just posted it today typically my grocery hauls are about a week behind just because that's how I have to do things to be able to get them edited and posted for you guys to watch one every week so today I'm at Walmart I do not have any well I hardly ever have kids with me I don't know why I'm saying that it's nice that my kids are older now and it's not not that they can stay home alone but Adam typically stays home with them while I go grocery shopping and this morning he is actually golfing and they spent the night last night at their grandparents house so I'm flying solo as per usual and this week sorry the lighting is not being my friend today this week I'm actually going out of town for work so I'm leaving tomorrow morning I think my flight is at 10:00 and I don't get back in till 6 p.m. on Friday and so I'm really trying to pick up convenience items this week if you watch my hauls you know that I normally get a mix of a lot I do tend to buy you know a fair amount of produce I also do by convenience foods because I'm full-time working mom and you know we all have to do what we have to do but usually when I'm out of town you know Adam likes quick things that he can make the kids and he's not going to spend you know 30 minutes or an hour cooking dinner in the kitchen like I would I enjoy it he doesn't I mean not that he doesn't enjoy cooking but he's he's just not gonna do it every night well well I'm gone and so there will be it had more processed foods in this hall than there normally is but anyway I'm gonna go inside and grab my groceries and I will let you know what I get when I get home so here is a look at everything I picked up at Walmart I spent a little less than $200 I think it was like 192 dollars or something like that I did get one clothing item for Kira and some non-food items so I'll show you everything that I got if you are ready for this press best food special because the food police they're coming and they're coming in hot all right so did not get too much produce this week mostly just fruit and a couple veggies to cut up for Adam and the kids to have we do still have oranges apples lettuce and some other produce in the refrigerator so I did get one yellow onion that's for the lasagna that I'm gonna make this evening I also got a package of Kiwis cura really loves these and she actually wrote them on my grocery list which I thought was cute so I'll probably prep some of these today just get them cut up and into some containers for them to have this week I grab some grapes I will wash these up we're at someone was commenting and I'm sorry I can't remember your name but we were talking in the comments a couple weeks about a couple weeks ago about the price of grapes and every once in a while around here I can find grapes for a 99 cents a pound but today these were 248 a pound and this was over 2 pounds so I paid like 5 something for this little package of grapes which i think is ridiculous but I like to wash these and have them in the refrigerator as quick snacks for the kids I just got one pound of strawberries this week since I got so many Kiwis and some bananas I'm gonna make some peanut butter banana muffins today for the kids to have this week so I tried to pick a few that were riper I got 1 cucumber 1 a package of cherry tomatoes Adam and Connor really like these so as long as I washed him up and put him in the fridge though eat those this week I grabbed one simply orange Kiera and I were talking about orange juice yesterday we were at a baby shower and they had mimosas and I was like do you want some orange juice and she's like I don't like orange juice it has pulp in it and I'm like but I usually buy the pulp free kind she's like oh I didn't know that so I don't know maybe she'll try this maybe she won't but I did get the pulp free and then I also just got half a gallon of 2% milk for if they need it for cereals this week or mac and cheese or whatever okay so when I'm out of town one of the things that I like to make sure that I stock the fridge up on is like cold cuts and things to make sandwiches since that's something that Adam can easily make the kids or Hira can even make her own lunch if she wants to I got some of the Sargento sharp cheddar sticks normally I get the Walmart brand but these were on and I bought our rebate and I think you get like a dollar 25 back so if you guys aren't familiar with ibotta and I know those of you who watch my holes probably get tired of me saying this I'll just briefly say it's a grocery rebate app that you can get cash back on a lot of things that you can buy at Walmart hyvee Target Walgreens there's a lot of different stores so I'll leave a link in the description box where you can download the app and I've been using it for several years and I have made over $2,000 so it's it's legit typically what I do is I convert the gift cards into Amazon or I convert the earnings into Amazon gift cards and then anytime I order stuff on Amazon which is like several times a week it seems like then that just gives me credit there so ok the pepperoni opinion Oh Kyra really loves these and haven't bought them in a few weeks so I grabbed those for her these are a little bit pricey and I know we've had conversations before about making these ourselves I feel like I could make these myself I did not want to wait at the deli today for the large pepperoni but I may try doing that sometime they did have the pre sliced meats and cheeses so I just got half a pound of the black forest ham half a pound of yellow American cheese for lasagna tonight and grab some mozzarella cheese those shredded and then I'm going to make some homemade pizza Lunchables for the kids they really like those and I honestly think they're probably better than the regular pizza Lunchables so I'm gonna do some meal prep with those today I grabbed some turkey Kiera loves to have turkey and pepperoni sandwiches and then Adam loves the ham and cheese loaf I think last time I bought this a lot of you guys told me that you haven't had it in forever so I grabbed some of that for him okay yogurt Kiera love the blueberry Nusa yogurt so I grabbed a couple of these for her to have for breakfast this week we do have some left or some more orange yogurt Connor likes the orange cream yogurt that I get like the great value brand and we still have some of that in the refrigerator we were out of maraschino cherries so I grabbed a replacement or that they will be having fish sandwiches one night this week my kids really love those and we don't hardly ever have them Adam likes tartar sauce on his and I think it was Fallon yeah I was Fallon from Moss Family TV she was saying that the great value tartar sauce is really good so I thought we would give that a try she says it kind of tastes like the tartar sauce from Long John Silver's which I have not been long john silver's and forever we used to have one in the town where I live I love their chicken it's so unhealthy but it's so good and then you get like the hush puppies then the little crunchies tell me if you guys have tried Long John Silver's it's so unhealthy okay wisps the cheddar cheese crisps I did pick up a package of these I have never seen the snack packs before so these are the cheddar ones sometimes I buy the parmesan ones since I'm going out of town this week I'm always looking for snacks that I can throw in my bag that don't need refrigerated so that's something that's hard for me when I travel is normally during the week when I'm at work if I'm eating a snack it's like yogurt or like I'll bring veggies and hummus or veggies and dip or cheese stick and crackers or something like that but when I'm traveling obviously I don't have access to her refrigerator like I do at work so I thought I would pick up these I do have also some beef sticks in the pantry that I got from boxed that don't need to be refrigerated so when I do my meal prep today I'll be sort of making up some of those snack packs for me to take with me this week typically what I do is I just put them in my regular suitcase that I check and then once I get to the hotel I'll keep them in the hotel room obviously and then just throw something in my laptop bag every day when I go to my class okay so for the homemade pizza Lunchables I got some townhouse pita crackers I normally like to get the round pita crackers they did not have any of those at Walmart it doesn't really matter obviously there's they're a different shape but Aldi has the round ones and so does Trader Joe's but Walmart just had these I saw Leanne from Grady's mom if you guys don't follow her YouTube channel go check it out she posts videos similar to mine she said that these were pretty good she said they were different and our Triscuit wheat berry clusters with pumpkin seeds and sweet corn I really love Triscuits so I thought I would give those a try I grabbed some French onion dip for some plain potato chips that I got I got this last week or two weeks ago maybe it's the great value raspberry lemonade the sugar free water flavor and the kids and Adam all really like this so I went ahead and got another one these are like the me oh you know there's cheaper than that this is like less than two dollars I grabbed one jar of tomato sauce for the lasagna tonight I have tried the great value pasta sauce before I wouldn't say it's my favorite but it's honestly not bad for 88 cents for this whole jar of pasta sauce that's pretty darn good okay I almost didn't show this because I know the food police are going to be rolling up here any moment but have you I got so I was gonna get the kids some SpaghettiOs because normally like when I'm gone they actually like it they don't like it that I'm gone when I travel but like they always give me crap about it because they're like we love the food that daddy fixes us when you leave because they get like fish sandwiches raviolis SpaghettiOs stuff like that and okay so I have never bought a can this big of ravioli see it's like almost as big as my head but I remember when I was a kid at my dad's house he would make this for us there was me and my sister and my step-brother and I actually I can remember having looks like first supper like for dinner like we would dump two huge cans of these raviolis into a pan heat it up and then have like canned green beans and that was our dinner look I would never obviously I'm giving this to my kids this week or Adams going to but like on a regular basis we had that like I would never even think to do that for dinner but we had it when I was kid and look here I am still alive slightly overweight or overweight maybe a lot overweight still alive so I got that just because I thought the huge kid was funny and then I got a can of SpaghettiOs with meatballs also so typically like if they have this for they'll have this with like veggies like raw veggies with ranch and fruit and maybe some cut-up cheese or something I don't know carry on okay next I got the Capri Sun or Oran waters the kids like these to drink and also to put in their lunches if they take lunch to summer camp now this was also when I bought our rebate and I tried these a couple weeks ago and they're actually pretty good they don't necessarily taste like dr. pepper they're called sweet and sassy baked beans but they were so good I got some pizza sauce this is my favorite brand the classic Oh for the pizza Lunchables every once in a while I get Adam some of these nacho cheese cups you can put them in the microwave if he likes to eat him with chips I grab some you Telex we were running low on that a dozen eggs and then this was also and I bought a rebate two packages of the applesauce the gogo squeeZ I got the Apple strawberry and the apple cinnamon for the kids I like to keep these in the refrigerator they are much more likely to eat them if they're cold for some reason I don't know okay buns so I got buns for the fish sandwiches and then buns for hot dogs because I think they might make hot dogs one night and then I also got Adam some English muffins he likes to have English muffins for breakfast like sometimes like this morning he ate them the eighth one was peanut butter and jelly sometimes also he will make a breakfast sandwich like with egg and ham and cheese and then these are new I've seen them but I have not tried them yet apparently they're just like the little mini nutrigrain bars this also had a rebate and so I figured I would try them it's a little bit pricey well I guess there's ten there's ten pouches in there and it was five dollars so I don't know I figured I'd get it for the kids for a treat they do like the normal nutrigrain bars either like the nutrigrain brand or the Aldi brand or the Walmart brand so I thought I'd just give these a try it just looks like there's little bites of them I got some blue moon so I mean we'll have couple of brewskis this afternoon after Erin gets home from golf I grab some garlic Texas toast for dinner tonight with the lasagna a package of chicken nuggets for them to have for dinner this week we like to cook these in the airfryer they come out super crispy and then I also grab the kids as a treat some popsicles these are the sour patch kids I've gotten these once before and really like them cure really likes the sausage and buttermilk biscuits yes sausage and buttermilk biscuits she can make these for breakfast on her own she just heats it up in the microwave so I grabbed those for her Conner really likes to have waffles sometimes for breakfast so I grabbed some of the strawberry ones we haven't had those in a while and then here is the fish that I normally buy for fish sandwiches so Adam will probably either cook this in the oven or maybe well actually he'll probably do it in the airfryer and then they just have it on buns the kids like theirs with like ketchup and pickles animal tartar sauce on him so there you go healthy dinner I grab some plain potato chips for the French onion dip and then the last food oh I got I guess I got some strawberry sparkling water but the last food item is Totino's party pizzas so I got cheese and pepperoni because it's gonna be a party mom's gone this week so here's all the non-food stuff that I got I did have to go over to the automotive section to get something or to get some air fresheners and I saw this turtle wax spray and wipe so it looks like it comes actually with a spray bottle in here and this is just a protectant like to wipe off your dash and stuff and then the clots in here are actually dry it looks like you spray it and then wipe them off which is nice because a lot of times if you buy this kind of stuff for you know wiping down your car these dry out before you can get a chance to use them so I thought that was kind of cool and then I got two packages of these Refresh these are just the sticks that you put on your car vents so Adam can have one and I can have one okay so I'm giving my nails a rest right now normally I do get like the gel or the shellac but I took it off the other night I'm just gonna paint it a regular color so I got this Sally Hansen miracle gel this is the pinky promise so I'm probably enough to paint my nails today before I leave for town or you know leave for travel tomorrow I picked to cure up some deodorant she was out a regular deodorant and then I actually keep one of these in my purse if you guys haven't tried these they're pretty cool it's like a deodorant on the go but I got this for her because she often is like going to friends houses or swimming and this way she can just throw this in her like swim bag and keep it in there I also got her this romper I don't know if she's gonna like it but I thought it was really cute so we'll see when she gets home but I don't know see she's kind of weird about clothes sometimes like she doesn't want to wear tank tops she doesn't want to wear skirts your Emily just likes to wear like t-shirt and shorts so I'll see if she'll try it on and give it a try I got Adam some shaving cream he was out of that and then also some aftershave lotion I just got the Gillette sensitive skin and also grabbed him some shampoo he just uses the regular head and shoulders classic this was also on a rebate and it's just the cotton Mel wipes and then lastly I got some pans so if you guys haven't tried these they do have them at my Walmart they say that they're takeout pans but I actually like to use these for freezer meals for like a smaller freezer meal usually the freezer meal pans that I get from Costco are like two times this size but this is perfect to do like a lasagna for our family or even if you're gonna take you know food to somebody I've frozen stuff and that's to take to my grandparents and stuff like that but I really like them I think they're a nice size they do come with the lids but obviously you don't want to put the lid in the oven on take it off and use foil so I grabbed these it looks like there's three pans and three lids in there so when I make the lasagna today what I'll do is I'll just make two of these I'll cook one for dinner tonight and then the other one will go in the freezer for a later use okay let me show you the meal plan okay so again not super fancy with the meal plan this week since I won't be here tonight I'm going to make lasagna with salad and garlic bread Adam really likes lasagna and it's been a long time since I've made it I think I don't think I've made it since winter and it sounded good so I thought I would make that meal before I left and then the rest of these meals they can have in any order they want so I have fish sandwiches chicken strips and waffle fries hot dogs mac and cheese and SpaghettiOs and then Friday he'll probably either order pizza or take them out to eat and then Saturday I do not plan that far ahead all right so that is it for this week's real life mom is going on a town grocery haul and meal plan I hope that you enjoyed it and thank you for watching I will see you in my next video bye

  • Man I just canโ€™t get enough of your videos! And your personality! I flipping love you woman!! I look forward to your videos all the time and as soon as I see a notification from Jen Chapin I lose my shit! ๐Ÿ˜‚ and now Iโ€™m hungry ๐Ÿ˜‹

  • I always used to get the chicken at Long John Silvers too! Yum! The one in my area closed several years ago too.

  • grapes are always so expensive for us here in Florida. It's very common to pay $2.99/lb here. But, kiddo loves them so whatever but I still wanna bitch about it. :p

  • Chef Boyardee kept me alive in the summers as a kid! My mom was single and worked two jobs so I was home alone a lot especially in the summers. Also, Long John Silvers is bomb. But I like the vinegar stuff instead of tarter sauce ๐Ÿ˜‚

  • LMAO! Food police! Tell them to get a life, bloody no hopers that hide behind a keyboard. Like this grocery haul. It is similar to what I did when I was busy with work/life/social things with younger kids. Mix of good and not so good. It's called real life for us working mums.

  • ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ the food police! Always makes me laugh that people comment about what OTHER families eat ๐Ÿ™„ every family is different ! Great haul Jen xxx

  • Do what works best for you and your family because I guarantee the police are feeding their family the exact same things theyโ€™re nagging you about.

  • When I was out of town my kids would beg me to insist my husband not cook (he really is awful! Have you seen that program The Worst Cooks In America? Yep. Thatโ€™s him!).

  • ๐Ÿ‘€ ๐Ÿ‘€ scanning through the comments looking for the food police to argue with is a straight up MOOD and Iโ€™m in it right now ๐Ÿ˜‚

  • I think any child deprived of having spaghettios and raviolis are being mistreated! ๐Ÿ˜‚ I buy them for my grandkids and if they want that for dinner Iโ€™m okay with that. ๐Ÿ˜ Parents are too rigid these days. Iโ€™m so glad I grew up in the 60โ€™s/70โ€™s. We had white bread, spam, tang, twinkies and anything hostess etc. etc. It would have been boring (and cruel) to have to eat so called โ€œhealthy food โ€œ! ๐Ÿ˜‚

  • Thanks for the Tater Sauce suggestion, we only like the Skippers brand and it's almost impossible to find now.

  • "Food police are rolling up any moment" ๐Ÿ˜‚ love it!! My sister lived on spaghetti o's for years cause she refused to eat anything else and she grew into a healthy adult. Don't sweat it. Have a safe trip ๐Ÿ˜

  • We used to eat all kinds of stuff when I was a kid that I wouldnโ€™t eat or serve to kids these days. We didnโ€™t really know jack about nutrition back then. Itโ€™s harder to think about eating stuff when we actually know itโ€™s nutritional value (or lack thereof). Not that that stops me from partaking in a fried baloney sandwich on white bread with mayo, and bbq potato chips smashed inside with a tapioca pudding cup for dessert. ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ. I just feel more guilt afterward now. ๐Ÿ˜‚

  • Lol it's a party ๐Ÿ˜‚ mom's going out of town!!!! Daaanng,used to love it when we had a big ol can of chef boyardee! Really , when I was pregnant with my 1st, could not get enough of the mini ravioli ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ always enjoy your video Jen TFS โ™ฅ๏ธ

  • Hi Jen! Whoโ€™s business is it what you get your family to eat? Unless they are paying for it they need to stop โœ‹ the criticism and eat what they want and leave you alone. It makes me so mad when people think they have the right to tell you that your not buying or feeding your children right. I buy what I choose and could care less if someone donโ€™t like it. The food police ๐Ÿ‘ฎโ€โ™€๏ธmost not see what you cook your family. Please never feel like you have to explain anything you buy. You are one awesome lady!

  • Long John Silvers hush puppies are my favorite! My son loves ravioli and spaghettios! I'm like you and only do them for lunch since the rest of my family doesn't care for it.

  • The fetch app is like Ibotta just less work I have both, all you do is scan your grocery receipt and it automatically gives you the points and you can redeem in gift cards. My code is N9AX1 you get 3000 pts which equal 3 dollars instantly for a gc! ๐Ÿ˜

    Iโ€™m a mom and I try and find as many ways that I can save money Iโ€™ve been using the gift cards on diapers ! Let me know if yโ€™all have any saving methods up your sleeve! โ˜บ๏ธ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ

  • ๐Ÿšจ๐ŸšจBEWARE OF THE FOOD POLICE ๐Ÿšจ ๐Ÿšจ

    They have so much spare time after working a full time job, filming/editing YouTube videos, taking care of a household, and making their children organic, gluten free, NON GMO 4 course meals they come on here to criticize other parents that are keeping it real ๐Ÿ˜‚ Love you & your channel.. you are so authentic and honest. Have a safe trip! โค๏ธ

  • Wait ham and cheese loaf can I just say it Yuk and there was another one now what was it….๐Ÿค” oh yes pimento loaf Double Yuk… sorry Adam!!! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ

  • Crackin me up!! ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ
    Vrooooomm Vroooooom!! Watch out there coming, they just wizzed right by me!!! Omg yes the best foods are when Mom is gone!! During normal circumstances frozen pizzas pop and ice cream bars, but donโ€™t tell anyone!! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜
    Sorry Mom… โค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธ

  • Someone down below just had to be that guy…ugh… the kids are fed. They won't expire from having some processed food once in awhile. Like someone else said…balance.

  • Yes. Real life. I like those party pizzas. There are others that I like more, but for a quick, cheap ๐Ÿ•, theyโ€™ll do. Yes to the ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿณ Ravioli for dinner when I was a kid. I used to eat the raviolis on Wonder Bread…not a vegetable in sight!

  • I laughed so hard about the food police ๐Ÿ‘ฎ๐Ÿ™ˆ I love all your videos and you and your family are so so funny! A total inspiration!
