Typical Grocery List

I'm Asking: What's on Your Grocery List?

We always talk about saving money on groceries, but I'm wondering what are the common staples you reach for in the grocery store. I always get items like milk, eggs, bread, chicken, fish, bananas, oranges, and some fresh vegetables like broccoli, green beans, or lettuce. To satisfy my soda addiction, I occasionally buy some sparkling water, and once in a while I reach for some cheese! As you can see, I don't really buy processed meats or frozen foods.

I know all of us have different diets, but I'm interested to know what the typical grocery list looks like. What do you reach for when your browsing the aisles of your local grocery store? Don't be afraid to add your whole list!

Frozen pizza Box mashed potatoes Chips 30 min meal in a box Gerber microwave meals for my tot White bread Sandwich meat Pickles Salsa Mac and cheese Milk OJ And then I'm a couponer so I have to shop based on what coupons I have as well.
