Julie’s 3 Months of “Normal” Foods List

Now, if you take a look at my three month plan vs. Jodi’s you’ll notice we’re different. When it comes to meal planning, Jodi likes to call herself organized, I tend to call her intense. I like to call myself creative, she might argue I’m scatter-brained. Nevertheless, we are all different and go about doing things differently. So for all you creative people: I made a list of what I normally buy at the story and put it on an index card (and yes it’s cute because it’s pink). When I look through grocery store ads, or other useful blogs on grocery shopping sales, I’ll see if any of my “list” items are on sale. Actually the truth of the matter is, I’ll wait for my awesome sister Andrea to call me and tell me where the sales are. She’s great at that. Anyways, I’ll buy my foods bulk. I’ll just keep on buying those foods on sale. With my three months list, I’ll creatively make meals and enjoy good food, for good prices.


  • Thank you…. Julie! :o)

    My family and friends ask me for my recipes all the time and my usual answer is… uh… let me figure it out first.

    I also go by looks, feel, taste and smell. You 'just' know. :o)

    So, no Julie, you are not weird!

    Sometimes I say, what it’s supposed to taste or smell like too.

    Ok so I guess that means I’m the weird one πŸ™ But Emily I have to warn you Julie doesn’t USE recipes! It drives me crazy. Whenever I ask how she made something i have to go and write down exactly what she said and then she mocks me for it. I hate the term “I just know what it’s supposed to look like”. ARGH!

    So I am not so weird after all then! Obviously this does not include fresh produce, meats and dairy, but I buy the same stuff every time I go shopping. I figure I will just load up on these items as they go on sale.

  • Funny–I have almost exactly the same stuff in my pantry! Julie and I should trade recipes, since we use so much of the same ingredients!

    You buy weird food! I wouldn’t know what to do with myself if that was all that was in my cupboard.
