When I decided to become a full-time vlogger, I used to take my precious time grocery shopping each week. I counted it as work, perusing the isles looking for new products to share with my viewers. I knew I was everyone’s least favorite person to shop with quickly in college when my sorority sisters would be waiting on the benches on the other side of the registers for me to finish up. However, as my schedule quickly filled up, these luxury trips stopped. I’m in and out of my weekly Trader Joe’s Monday pit stop usually in 20 minutes (depending on how long the lines are).
I know what I like and I know what Trader Joe’s has. Since their prices are always competitive, they do not do sales. When I shop at the big grocery store, I’m often lured by their attractive deals and end up making additional purchases to create a complete meal with the sale item. I also hit up farmer’s markets during the summer in Boston. I finally decided to put together my grocery list for all of you to see and critique. Here you go:
In addition to the above list, I usually will grab a few veggies to throw in my salad like grape tomatoes, cucumber and onion. Jarred veggies are a staple as well like olives, roasted red peppers and jalapenos for flavor.
Am I missing any of your staples? If it looks like my sweet tooth is lacking, my go-to is frozen bananas with almond milk and vanilla protein powder. It makes the best soft serve ice cream.
I hate my kitchen so you will not see it in another video for a very long time!
