GROCERY HAUL! πŸ›’πŸŒπŸ₯¦πŸ MEAL PLANNING FOR A FAMILY OF FOUR W/ LIST + RECIPES!



hey loves it's Brianna welcome back to my
channel in today's video I'm going to be doing a grocery shopping haul sharing
what I buy how I meal plan for my family of four if you're new here I have a
little boy he's three and a half and my daughter is 18 months and my husband is
Adam so I'm feeding a family for I shop basically every 10 days so I will show
you exactly how I meal plan for our family breakfast lunch dinner exactly
what I buy and because we're so close to Christmas you're getting a little bit of
a bonus of the Christmas cookies that I'm making those ingredients and then
what I'm making for our Christmas meals on Christmas Eve Christmas days you'll
get to know a little bit of our family meal traditions when it comes to the
holidays but for this grocery store haul I'll show you everything I get for just
general I guess meal planning and at the end I'll give you a grand total of what
everything cost for sort of my every week meal planning for my family of four
and then I'll do what everything costs for the Christmas cookies and Christmas
meals because I just want to take those out of the equation since they are
special for just this time of year and because I want to make this grocery
store haul and like meal planning very useful I'm going to link my blog down
below and that is where I will include all of the recipes for exactly how to
make the meals then for the all the ingredients that I purchased for this
grocery store haul so I hope that it's helpful for you and if you like these
types of videos on my channel as always click that thumbs up and posting every
day at 8 a.m. now until Christmas so make sure that you reek lick that
notification bell because a lot of people have said that they aren't
getting notifications right now and YouTube's been doing some funny stuff so
make sure you're subscribed and had that Bell clicked all right so I'm gonna get
started with our family's breakfast staples I personally am NOT a huge
breakfast eater but I know that the kids love breakfast so they really like toast
so I have some wheat bread they love these little mini muffins I
have the egg Oh pancakes french toast sticks and Mickey waffles and because
Landon has butter sensitivity I actually do too I love using this Smart Balance
it's made with olive oil so it's the consistency of butter but it's made of
olive oil so that's what I kind of use to butter all their things these I might
use for a breakfast or lunch but if we are on the go I love these fruit and
veggie squeeze pouches eggs of course can be good especially on the weekends
not usually during the week but I'll use those a lot on the weekends and I had to
get 18 because of all the Christmas cookies and some of the brunch recipes
that I have to make that require a lot of eggs I like putting fruit with their
breakfast – so I have raspberries strawberries I also have these yogurt
pouches these again are really good for on-the-go and can be used with breakfast
for lunch as far as milk goes so Landon loves
brown but I usually cut it with some regular milk so I will do like 2/3 white
milk with just like a little splash of brown chocolate milk
he calls it brown sorry guys oh and Fred's Lee's has home milk then for me I
really like for breakfast a lot of times granola and yogurt so I love getting the
different flavors of Greek yogurt I think I have a lemon meringue I think I
did two lemons because I really like the lemon I have a banana cream pie and I
got a raspberry yogurt so I like having that with the vanilla almond granola
coffee in the morning these are some of me and Adams favorites
besides my mushroom coffee but I love the cinnamon he loves this caramel
vanilla cream and then there's just a regular breakfast blend but I like the
coffee mate this is natural blissed almond milk it's a vanilla coffee
creamer and I feel like that almond milk one is really good I have some apples
and bananas Landon has been on a pomegranate kick lately so got a bunch
of pomegranates for him and then these I just like for on
go if you know we're rushing out because of preschool or something
these Luna bars so I got lemon zest there's a chocolate walnut fudge protein
and there's another protein one that's chocolate peanut butter but just so you
can see how my meal plan for breakfast its muffins french toast pancakes
waffles toast cereal whether that's oatmeal granola the olive
oil butter coffee creamer melon fruits or some kind of smoothie drink is sort
of the plan for breakfast all right we're gonna take a fast break from this
haul and do the letters of the day I'm gonna put them right here on the screen
makes you write them down for the vlogmas word scramble and on the
christmas vlog is where you can put in your entry so that you can be entered in
for that 500 dollar Amazon gift card $500 spa finder gift card and the $100
grow collaborative credit so you can get all those cleaning goodies for the new
year and then all of these lunches are super simple for the kids I always make
sure they have some kind of fruit veggie yogurt to go with their lunch but it's
either mac and cheese grilled cheese either peanut butter and jelly or a
sunflower butter for Landon and jelly cuz he can't have peanut butter
quesadillas and then my husband he really likes mini corndogs so does
Landon I didn't get those because they didn't have the brand that we like this
week and for myself I usually do something simple like a can of soup or
honestly I just snack on a ton of fruits and veggies and like peanut butter and
very quick easy things when I'm usually running around during the day so these
are much more like a kid geared lunches but this bread is still used for that I
just want to share I love lemonade I also love just having lemon water so I
usually get these sometimes I'll add fresh lemon to my water but I love these
Cecilia probably cuz I'm Sicilian but some peanut butter which will be for
Pressley sandwiches and for some of the bacon that we're going to do I have
these singles that are good for the grilled cheese and these just macaroni
and cheese cups and a lot of times like our kids love to snack on goldfish so I
got both the Mickey and these Christmas goldfish
and then just for with their lunches and baby cut carrots and I'll use one of
these broccoli floret packs just to kind of give them some broccoli for on the
side but then a lot of this stuff kind of overlaps for dinner than 2 because
the meals I have planned for dinner for us our chili with chips I have a red
sauce with rigatoni planned I have a chicken alfredo and fettuccine planned
burgers and salad and a beef with broccoli so for the burgers I have these
ground beef burgers and I got some whole wheat buns we can use this cheese and I
have planned salad to go with them so just Italian salad I'll probably just do
like balsamic and olive oil I have my olive oil here with my minced garlic
because I'm almost out of my other jar but I'll use this with the teriyaki
sauce one of these packages of the broccoli florets and then one of these
it's like stir-fried beef and I can just throw all that in the crock pot to make
a beef with broccoli and then got ramen noodles the beef flavor to go along with
that and then when it comes to the red sauce and rigatoni this is also one of
the meals I make for our Christmas Day dinner
I love making like meatballs with beef and veal so like it it just gives it a
very unique taste and flavor and then I also in the sauce I'd let it cook for
about 24 hours on low I add in some pork chops I like chop those up and some
sweet Italian sausage so some of this will go and because this is a huge like
3 pound pack of beef so when I just do the red sauce I'll just make some like
small meatballs or even just throw the sauce right or use me throw the meat
right into this sauce but I got a couple different flavors just because I'd like
mixing them a little bit but I got a mushroom a garden style and two that are
three cheese with then rigatoni so we can have meat sauce in rigatoni one
night this week and then I'll do the actual big like meatball sausage pork
sauce that will simmer for 24 hours and be amazing I like stomach is growling
just thinking about it because it's so good um but I've shared this one a bunch
on I think like Instagram and in some other videos
I love this Bertolli it's a creamy basil alfredo sauce I just use a package of
chicken breast and the same chopped garlic throw that into the crock-pot let
it cook all day it turns out amazing and I got some whole grain linguini then
that I will serve that on and then when it comes to the chili I have these
Tomatoes chili beans I like this organic chili and I have
already in my freezer some ground-up turkey I usually use ground turkey in my
chili because I really don't notice the taste different and that way it's a
little bit healthier so and then just for meal planning for Christmas our
brunch I do like a sausage bake bacon eggs cinnamon rolls this lemon ice jello
mold with raspberries on the top it's so good orange juice are we also have
champagnes we could make mimosas and then that garlic red sorry that goes
with like the Christmas sauce but in that bake there needs to be a loaf of
bread the sweet Italian sausage there's a bunch of eggs that will go in that
this is the bacon there's Colby jack cheese and cream of mushroom soup and
again I'll have this like recipe for that sausage egg bake on the blog then I
just got the Pillsbury grands cinnamon rolls are so good orange juice and then
for Christmas Eve so we like to do appetizers just like very simple because
we know we're gonna be doing like a big brunch the next morning and that red
sauce that I usually and making on Christmas Eve so Adam picked out he
loves these pepper jack filled pretzels and I'm gonna make the buffalo chicken
dip I'll have the recipe for that on the
blog for you guys too and then when it comes to Christmas cookies this year
I'll share these recipes but we're gonna be making butter cookies collage cheese
maple thumb prints peanut butter blossoms and Italian cookies and so
these are kind of all the ingredients I need so I'll need one of the packs of
cream cheese I need a lot of sour cream for the collage peas
lots of margarine because I'm avoiding butter for just myself in Landon two big
things of flour I have the kisses for the peanut butter blossoms baking soda
baking powder I get pure vanilla extract I really hate
the taste of like imitation and same thing with almond and I'm a little bit
disappointed though because I did the pre-order for our grocery and this is
like the filling that I usually use and I think they said they were out of the
raspberry and cherry so they substituted like pie fillings and I just don't think
that's gonna work so I think I'm gonna have to end up going back to the store
before I make the collage keys and the thumb prints but I also just picked up
some frosting for the cut out cookies and oh this over here is for that jello
mold I was talking about it's like lemon jello mixed with Cool Whip and then you
top it with the raspberries you kind of make like a syrupy sauce out of those
that goes over the top but it is so good and in just a couple random things I
threw in this haul I ordered these fridge and freezer packs because I
wanted to do one in both the fridge and freezer because I just cleaned it out in
like a deep cleaning video last week and randomly this popped up as something
suggested so I decided to try this it's like a foaming cleaner for your garbage
disposal so give it a try okay so I did not expect to be crying in a grocery
haul a video but instead of just like shouting out one person at a I like I'm
opening all these cards because I stopped at the PIO box today on my way
to the grocery store and you guys have sent me like the nicest things like
literally I'm like that kind cuz I'm upset I'm crying because I literally I'm
just like I'm so touched I've shared before that like words of affirmation or
my love language and oh my gosh I did not just expect to read some of what I
wrote in your cards and that's I just want to say like I have a peel box but
please don't ever send gifts do not waste your money like put your money to
a good cause or to somebody you know who's really in need but if you ever
want to send me a card I'm just like what
they blow it away Thanks oh good lord but truly okay so I want to just like
say the names of the people who cards have like touched me so Jacqueline thank
you so much Elizabeth pilling Thank You Brittney Patrick and Camilla lynn
karolina dave kelsey and mallory New York I hope I'm saying that right Kim P
Steve Heather Anastasia and Jackson Lisa and I got Amy darlie's card today too so
thank you guys like I'm so touched right now and just reading like your words and
your kind thoughts and prayers for our family and for Adam and fear my dad I'm
just blown away by you so thank you thank you thank you
Society I'm like crying over my boss mom cook over here today's inspirational
quote of the day is by kamila Kimball and it is never suppressed a generous
dot and I had to pick that one after reading all of these cards because you
all clearly went way out of your way to even send me something and write those
kind words and whether it is somebody that you see in person that you want to
give a compliment to or tell them something you've always admired about
them or somebody that you might not even know that well on your feed on Facebook
or on Instagram leave them a compliment if there's something you see that you
think in your head like oh they're great at this or that looks awesome share that
because I can tell you like I woke up this morning just being totally honest I
have a really big to-do list I had some feelings of like self-doubt but
literally opening up those cards has changed like the fact that I have a
really long to-do list I'm like ready to take it on because I feel really good
now so you just your words and your kind thoughts can completely turn somebody's
day around so don't be afraid if you have something nice on your brain share
it okay I know I promised at the end here I was going to tell you what the
grand total was so for the meal planning like for a family of four
how much it cost for all of the meals which by the way I typed it all out it's
on my blog bits of Brie blog.com make sure you check it out because I have
exactly how the meals are broken down and I have the full shopping list so if
you just want to print out the list and go to the grocery store or use that list
and put in an online order it can be super simple for you um and I did budget
in like two nights of either having leftovers or getting takeout or like
going out to eat so there are just five dinners but we always do eat our
breakfast and lunches at home but the total cuz you're like that's what I'm
waiting for I'm gonna show you on the screen because
I put everything in the online checkout so I just wanted it to be exact so I
think you guys are gonna be pretty happy because it is under two hundred dollars
so right now I know you know prices can vary based on produce and whether or not
you're buying organic and I actually do have quite a bit of organic products in
here because I always do organic dairy just because I've read a lot about the
hormones and milk and how that especially can affect a little girls but
all kids so I was buy organic dairy products and I try to buy organic like
meats and even produce as much as possible but I thought that was pretty
good under $200 to feed a family of four for a week okay and what I really love I
just realized if anybody else lives where there are giant Eagles that's
where we shop you can save different shopping lists on their online shopping
so I just saved that as like meal plan one and I made another list that has all
of the Christmas cookie ingredients so next year it will be so easy just to go
back in and order everything that I need for the Christmas cookies um but the
total for all of the Christmas cookie of Christmas cookies are expensive man
sixty three dollars and seventy four cents see isn't it cool you can like
make a list and see whatever you know you need based on whether it's a meal
plan or Christmas cookies and then everything I need for our Christmas
brunch ended up being sixty one dollars and 49 cents okay so I
just made another list for Christmas dinner which is 46 dollars and 36 cents
so I think what I'm gonna do is just have separate blog posts so I'll do a
blog post for all of the meal planning and then I'll do a Christmas cookie
recipe blog post and then I'm gonna try to get around to it but doing like the
Christmas brunch and Christmas dinner recipes I'm gonna combine those or make
them separate but I'll be working on some blog post here for you guys if I
don't get them all out by the time that this video goes live keep checking back
because I'll try to get them up then this week well I hope that this grocery
shopping haul was helpful and I hope that the blog is helpful to to give you
a quick simple easy affordable meal plan for you and your family and if you have
any other video requests that you would like to see let me know that in the
comments if you want me to do more meal planning videos or a blog post or
recipes that kind of thing let me know that as well and I will see you my next
video make sure you're subscribed here and our family channel I will have that

  • I honestly love leaving positive comments on videos that I love because I know it really helps someone feel better or happier and I truly love your beautiful channel thanks for uploading such awesome content I’m so so thankful to God I found your channel a few weeks ago I think about 2 weeks ago and I’m watching all videos while I clean or when I eat. I have twins and I only live with my hubby we have no family around us so I’m alone all day other than when he comes home and it makes me feel sad when it’s eating time because I eat alone but now having found your channel I watch your videos during my eating time and I don’t feel alone anymore and I feel accompanied πŸ’• so thanks for your positive spirit I can tell even though I haven’t met you that you are an amazing and kind person full of love.

  • So this video popped up in my feed and I decided to watch, as I love grocery/meal planning videos. Noticed a lot of stuff was giant eagle brand, which you don’t see too often in videos so it got me curious about where you might live (not to sound creepy). I’ve only ever seen giant eagles in Ohio and PA. Turns out you’re in the Cleveland area, as am I! Small world! But I’m definitely subscribing not only because I loved your video, but I also like supporting hometown people! Can’t wait to watch more of your videos 😊

  • Great video!! Soo helpful! Loved your meal plan and gave me good ideas! I would love to see how you make your meatballs and that lemon raspberry jello dish. Im going to go check out your blog now.

  • Hey Brianna i love your videos! You inspire me to be a better person, mom, wife, with every video you make. Do you still use hello fresh? And if so, how often and how often do you just do your own recipes?

  • Is that a lower case or upper case for the middle letter. Just want to make sure I have the right letter.

  • Hey, girl! Would you happen to have any codes to help out a mama who's interested in trying Hello Fresh for the first time? My hubby and I are very interested in incorporating them into our weekly meals. πŸ™‚

  • Hi Bri~I pray that you lay your head on your pillow at night with a huge smile on your face. I hope when you are by yourself you do a little floss dance or whatever dance moves you are into and finally I encourage you to yell as loud as you can (maybe while you’re by yourself driving) β€œI am an amazing Mom and I am winning at life because when life throws me a curve ball, I will Always TRY to hit it”.

    Your heart is so Big. If I am having a rough day, I just turn on one of your videos and my day is better. I want to sincerely say thank you . You are doing great girl, and I Really hope you can see it through all of your subs eyes, if not your own. 😘

  • My mom keeps her receipt from grocery shopping for Passover every year and a few notes in her cook book every year (how many people, how many nights, etc) and it’s so fun to look and see the cost change.

  • I love your use of the saved lists. I don't normally shop online, but I'm seriously reconsidering now lol! Always feel inspired when I watch your videos, they never fail to motivate me. Love your channel! β™‘

  • Keeping your Dad and Adam in my prayers. You are so inspirational and I loved this video switch up, loved seeing your grocery haul and learning a bit more about what you all eat. Always looking for inspiration for our little fam of 3! Thank you!!!
