Sample Cheap Shopping List

Here is a shopping list I used recently for 3 adults, no dairy.
It is mostly setup for our family which means we eat between 1-2 meals a day.

If you aren’t familiar with my shopping lists, they are what I actually used to cook the meals for a week doing Sunday Meal Prep, scoop and heat.  I don’t prepare each portion in its own dish because… damn that’s a lot of work.

Item Qty Price Total
Eggs (dozen) 3 $1.99 $5.97
Tuna 2 $3.88 $7.76
Pickles (Dill, sour) 1 $3.50 $3.50
Pork Picnic Shoulder (~9lbs) 1 $11.00 $11.00
Chicken Thighs (boneless, skinless) 1 $6.50 $6.50
Salad greens 1 $4.99 $4.99
Olive Oil 1 $5.99 $5.99
Green Onions (bunches) 2 $1.20 $2.40
Green Peppers (bag of 6) 1 $2.00 $2.00
Chard, Kale or Collards (in bunches) 2 $2.50 $5.00
Frozen chopped spinach 2 $2.22 $4.44
fresh Cauliflower 1 $2.50 $2.50
Fresh Broccoli 1 $2.20 $2.20
Zucchini 4 $1.10 $4.40
Iceberg Lettuce heads 1 $1.10 $1.10
Garlic 1 $1.10 $1.10
