I often get asked what I buy on a weekly basis at the grocery store for my family of 5. While some of the items may change with the seasons, I do have a set list of produce and staples that I buy weekly.

We also love that we finally have a patio and a good-sized yard to start growing our own fruits and veggies! While we are mostly unpacked, the house is far from decorated yet. I promise to do a mini house tour (or at the very least, a kitchen tour) when we are finished. OK?
