🥝CHEAP Healthy ALDI Large Family GROCERY HAUL! | 🛒SHOP WITH ME | Jamerrill Stewart


– [Jamerrill] Okay Daniel, what do you want mommy to bring home? – Ice cream and pizza! – [Jamerrill] Ice cream and pizza, you think we need that in our lives? – Mhmm! – [Jamerrill] Okay, here I go! So the girls, and Benjamin, and I are doing a big grocery haul today. And we went to get into our super-mega, large family van, and uh, I just could not drive the thing with crumby messes. You know when your van
looks like the bottom of the cereal box? That’s how our van was a looking. When our brooms break… Benjamin hears me, he’s
not happy with this. We keep the bottoms of
the brooms in the van, that way we can do sweeps. We did lots of trash pick up. You’re doing it Amelia, almost done. Here, get that bottle lid. And then when we sweep the van out, if there’s like little trash
pieces that come out… See right there, the cough drop wrappers and the bottle lid, and I think we’re done. What I’m trying to do today, is I’m doing a pantry challenge. I’m not doing it super organized. If you wanna see a very fun, inspiring, organized pantry challenge, go over to our good friend Sarah at Our Tribe of Many. She did a pantry challenge in the summer where they ate down their
pantry and their freezers, I think for four weeks, and she did an excellent job sharing each week along the way. We have been working on
eating down our pantry and freezers over the last few weeks, since after the holidays. So now it’s almost the end of
the second week in January, and I have a lot of the components
to do big weekend tacos, to do large family spaghetti, to do some meatloaves,
and probably some chili, you know, the old standard favorites. I have the meat, which is the big part, but there’s some fill-in
items I need at Aldi. And then, also, while we’re in the city, we’re gonna go by Sharp Shopper. Now, I’m trying to not spend a ton, because, again, I have a lot
I need to use up in the house. Okay, we had to fill up
our big, beast of a van. It was only $55 of diesel, that makes you feel like a deal. And the girls and I, we’re three girls and a baby out, we are gonna go to Outback Steakhouse, actually, for lunch. But the shopping center we’re at, it’s either that or McDonald’s
or an Italian restaurant, and I’m trying to stay, you know, trim healthy mama-ish. And I looked up Outback
Steakhouse’s lunch menu and they do have… Let’s see. I’m going in a big circle here. They do have lunch specials. It looks like you can
pick two things for $8.99. So, it’s gonna be more
expensive than fast food, but then again, trying to not eat those carbs. Okay, you ready for some lunch? You was sleeping. – [Jamerrill] Are you
just a little excited about that bread? Naomi’s getting it going, look at that. Cutting everybody a hunk, huh? Yum. She’s gonna put the butter on it for you, then you can shove it in your face. – How is she gonna put the butter on? – [Jamerrill] Well, yeah, she’s gonna use that knife
she’s cutting it with. Are you excited? – What did you order?
(screaming) – [Jamerrill] Yes, what did you order? – Um… – [Jamerrill] What was it? I forget. Oh, ribs! – Yeah, ribs. – [Jamerrill] You gonna try some ribs? – [Naomi] I got a cheeseburger – [Jamerrill] You got a cheeseburger. And you’ve got grilled cheese. Say “grilled cheese.” – Grilled cheese. – [Jamerrill] Grilled cheese. Good job! Oh boy, Benjamin! Ohh! Say “I can figure out
what to do with that.” – Yummy. – [Jamerrill] Yummy. No, don’t eat the table. Eat your butter bread. There’s mama’s, and look, this is like… This grilled cheese sandwich is bigger than my hand. So (laughs). And you got your ribs. Yummy! We’re here. Get six cans of tuna. – [Amelia] Of tuna? – [Jamerrill] Yes. Stack ’em up, put ’em in the cart. Spaghetti sauce is .85 cents each. I’m gonna get a whole case of 12. I’ll get four of these at $1.39. Really good price on pretzels. I’m gonna get a few bags of these, just for extra treats. Let’s get two of these. Can you get two and put them in the cart? There you go. Woo. Say “asparagus.” So many good choices here. We’ll get these. Get our spaghetti squash, baby. No, you don’t need those. Woo, trampoline! Okay. You get in the back of the van, I’m gonna hand you bags. Put that over back near the cart because we have bread and stuff in there. There you go. Here’s more bread. Take it way back. – [Friend] Do you need more
or do I take the paper away? – [Jamerrill] I would
take the paper for now. Naomi’s getting Benjamin buckled for us. Here honey, we got a whole bunch. That’s a good pretzel deal we got. Here’s our pineapples. I ended up getting a third pineapple. Okay pizzas, you behave yourselves. I got kiddos expecting you for dinner. So, here’s how the one week, huge, healthy,
Aldi grocery haul is looking. Well, as Travis is reminding me, we have basketball practice
for some kiddos in a few hours. And in order for me to get
home and show you this haul, which I’m gonna do next, I’m gonna have to go back over the river, through the woods. Our fun girl-lunch out means
no Sharp Shopper today, but that’s okay, because wait until you
see what Aldi’s price was on yogurt this week. So we are back from our fun
Aldi grocery shopping haul, which I had mentioned earlier that this is more of a fill-in-ish haul, because we are working down on, I think, we might only have, I don’t know, three or four freezer meals from this fall, left in the freezers. It’s already middle of January now, so I’m trying to get the last
of those freezer meals gone. We have lots of items there that I’m gonna go through
every single one for you. Then I have our dinners
planned for this week. So, let me show you what I got. So, already, for tonight, I have two kids with
basketball practice tonight, so we got two of these pizzas. The pepperoni was $5.49, and the five cheese was $4.99, and I figure if the kids really want to, we can put pepperoni on that one. And then, look at this Jamerrill restraint, I only got one box of 12. Gonna actually go put these
in the freezer right now, so the kids can have- Oh, look at that. Doesn’t everyone just
have some stray pepperonis hanging out? You know what? These are pepperonis that are trying to get
over to this cheese pizza. I know it’s a thing. I know. That must be where these mystery
pepperonis have come from. Anyway, that’s dinner tonight. If you are new here, we could easily go through
a gallon of milk a day, so I got eight gallons. All of these are dated for January 24th, and it is, well look, my battery is dying. I think it’s January 11th, which means Benjamin’s
officially 18 months old today. Anyway, these two here with
the little squished down heads, they were like that when we got them, but it wasn’t worth Naomi
digging back in the cooler for any more at that time. ‘Cause we were busy. We were working hard. So, we are getting ready to
have a snow storm in Virginia. We’re gonna get anywhere
from two to eight inches. How do you like that? What I’m gonna do for this weekend, is I’m going to do weekend tacos. Which means I’m gonna make
’em tomorrow, Saturday. We’re gonna have ’em Saturday, we’re gonna have ’em Sunday. We may even have some
leftovers Monday for lunch, we shall see. So, I got a whole case
of these taco shells. We already have some cheese. I think we already have two
bags of shredded cheese, so I got two more. And then these little
containers of sour cream. That’s right, these are little. These were only .89 cents. And I figure, we will use most of these for our couple days of tacos, and we will have, of course, tacos in the shells, the traditional way, and a lot of taco salads. That’s what I’ll be having. I got only one container, cottage cheese. Again, Jamerrill restraint now. This yogurt deal. I only got 24 yogurts, which again, if you’re a
long time viewer ’round here, or even a recent viewer, you know this is like, no yogurt for me, basically. It was only .29 cents each, which was an awesome deal, because usually at Sharp Shopper I can get them for .25 cents each, but I didn’t have to drive across town. However, my cart was almost full and I wanted to get home
to basketball practice, I knew we had to go over the
river and through the woods. So, anyway, I only got what
I could fit into my one cart, which was these two cases. So, it won’t be a heavy snack for the kids for this coming week, but it’s a little yogurt filling. That’s the only yogurt we have right now. I got three things of almond milk. This is probably more almond
milk than I’m going to drink and a few of the kids are going to drink, in the next week, however, I like to stock up and have a little extra on hand. The pineapples were an awesome deal and we have not had
pineapple in a long time. Just a $1.19, so we actually ended up
getting three of them. Then, I got some celery. I got two bags of organic pears. This is more for snack-wise. One head of iceberg lettuce, and then I also had got
some spring mix lettuce. And so, this is for tacos, taco salad. I got two spaghetti squashes, because after we have weekend tacos, we’re then gonna do a
big batch of spaghetti. We probably have spaghetti twice a month. We absolutely love it, and so if it’s on spaghetti squash, then I can have it. I really wanted to get these, and of course, we love mini peppers. So I got a bag of mini peppers. Got two bags of tomatoes
with tacos in mind. These were only a $1.39 a bag. I got us a box of the kiwis. Two packs of the green peppers. These were $1.49 a bag. I got one bag of green apples and one bag of honey crisp apples. I think these were $2.69 a bag. Then I got… Oh, let’s not forget the asparagus. Two packs of asparagus, because, see the meal
plan for the next week is coming out as I talk. So, tacos, yes. Spaghetti, yes. Then I was gonna do a couple meatloaves and I thought we could
have those with asparagus. Here are all the spaghetti sauces. I like to buy the big cans
from Costco for like $2.69 of just plain tomato sauce, and I make homemade spaghetti sauce. Aldi doesn’t have anything comparable. These jars are only .85 cents, so I got 12. I got four boxes of spaghetti sauce. It’s two pounds each. I got one can of shakey cheese. I got five loaves of bread. It was .99 cents a loaf. Two things of mayonnaise. We have six cans of tuna. I have six more cans at home. If I do it for lunch, with just a little left over, that’ll take six cans. I also have some avocados left over, and Amelia and I like to have avocado, and even Liam likes to have an avocado with a can of tuna on it. So, that is that. Got some more barbecue sauce. This is to have on-hand. It’s not planned for any
meals, in particular, although some of the kids
might have it with meatloaf. I got these pepper rings
because I would like this on taco salad. I got the apple cider vinegar from Aldi, use that for all kinds of things. Got one bag of black beans. There’s a couple different recipes in the coming weeks I
need black beans for, and I also might use
this in our taco meat. I got two packs of the 85% dark chocolate. Travis likes dark chocolate and these were .99 cents a bar. This is the super-great, what was it, .59 cents a
bag for these pretzels? Yes, please! So I got four. Those will be nice and
snacky for when we need ’em. So, this whole haul came to $158.50. That’s for our family of 10, which includes two adults
who are home full-time, two teenagers, a young adult, and a whole lot of growing kiddos. Here’s another look. And the reason you don’t
see meat in this haul is because we bought a whole, pasture-raised, grass-fed cow this fall. And that is the meat that
I am using for the tacos, and the spaghetti, and the meatloaves, and then by the time we get through that, it’ll probably be time for another haul. Doing these little hauls
for the next few weeks as we continue to eat
down more of what’s in our freezers and pantry
and be a little creative. And then for February I will probably do a super-mega large family grocery shopping haul to Costco and Sharp
Shopper and all the places.

  • I’ve watched so many of your hauls I now call Parmesan “shaky cheese”. 😊
    For many years we called milk, moo, because that was what my daughter started referring to it as and it stuck. It’s always funny to hear the unique nicknames families give things.

  • I love your vlogs. I should be asleep. it's 1am here and I just got off work, and I have to be up at 7am to get my son ready for school.

  • U look great!! Love watching your grocery hauls!!🍅🌮🍕🍞 Your small son is so cute!! Blessings to u and your beautiful family and stay warm!!🧣🧤🧤

  • I dont really find good deals at Aldi's. I will try again since I'm getting my family of 3 healthier. I LOVE your videos!!

  • Great time to do a pantry challenge – Planning on doing a bit of the same once the school year starts back in a couple of weeks and I get back into a routine. Things are so reasonably priced in your neck of the woods! I get the Moser Roth chocolate from Aldi and think it’s a great price for under $3 😆 .99cents?! Amazing! Anthony grew up for a time in Fairfax Virginia….I’ve suggested we give the kids a similar experience….now that I know Moser Roth chocolate is under a dollar there, I think discussions will have to get serious 😂

  • Hi Jammerill! I’m catching up on all of your amazing videos! I cannot begin to tell how much joy your videos bring me. Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful life with us. 😊💗

  • I love watching your videos. Your grocery hauls give me life. Lol. Here in Mechanicsville we got a couple inches but a lot of ice so it was interesting driving in it. I hope your kids enjoyed the snow. 😋

  • Good work! Sometimes you just have to work fast and get it done right? Your cold seems to be hanging on? Hope you’re all healthy soon!

  • Oh, I only have 2 kiddos and my car still looks like the bottom of a cereal box..lol! Love your videos, and your calm demeanor! 💕

  • any more, fast food is not cheaper than Applebees or Olive Garden at lunch time. [[ sigh ]] We don't eat out a lot, but it is a treat (I take my 85 yr old Mama out to eat once a week – usually for breakfast! It's our 'girl' time!

  • Love watching your videos. Would love to see you and Sarah (Our tribe of Many) do a collaboration some time. I think getting both families together would be fun.

  • Just for mama tip, Walmart has frozen angus meatballs. Add a half cup of low sugar sauce and shaky cheese. Nuke it , add a salad and you feel like you had a spaghetti meal, filling.

  • I just did a pantry and low spend challenge in the month of December (I know what was I thinking?!). So this month I really need to stock back up on stuff. We've been lucky in the Northeast (NY) when it comes to winter storms but we have 2 headed our way for mid week and the weekend. So today I'll be heading out to make sure we're stocked up, we should be getting anywhere from 12-18 inches of snow, yuck. My SUV currently looks like the bottom of a cereal box but it's too cold for me to care.

  • When you eat out do you bring leftovers or bring a plate of for the kids and/ or Travis. Bc my husband enjoys leftovers or a plate of food when I go out without him. I guess it make him feel special and that I though of him. Lol whatever makes him happy

  • I miss Aldi so much!!! When my husband and I lived in Houston Texas… that was our most shopped store! We are now back in Canada and have nothing that compares!!! Love your grocery haul videos!

  • We are in the middle of a pantry and freezer challenge right now!!! We have just been doing fresh food and milk, etc. we are out of all our fruit currently and need to make another aldi trip but the snow threw us off. Your lashes look good! I need some! Our yogurts are 25 cents each at aldi! The last time I got pineapples at aldi they were 49 cents! I couldn’t believe it. My kids love those peppers too. I think two more snow storms are coming this week/weekend! ❄️❄️❄️❄️🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼

  • I did not realise your last name is also Stewart, but I married an east coast one. I saw a video where an ingredient of the grated parmesan is wood pulp. not sure if this is true. If I had bought that amount of food over here in the north east it would have been about 300.

  • Great video., also… I love when favorite youtubers are friends with other favorite youtubers. We Love Our Tribe of Many 😘😘😘

  • You go girl! That was an awesome deal at Aldis!! It pays to know when you go what you are getting for sure….We got 5inches here in Ohio…tacos and chili here too!! Made ham and bean soup too!! I loooove your look in this vlog…that hat color brings out your eyes and looked cozy. What would you recommend in a starting list for the trim healthy mama for an aldis run??

  • Do you freeze the almond milk? Also, I am a huge coffee drinker, but looking for a healthy creamer does Almond milk work for that? Love your video as always! 🙂

  • I'm blown away by how cheap the prices at your Aldi are! I live in Maine (where they don't have Aldi) but it's difficult to find food so cheap. Your pepperoni trying to escape was hilarious…. 😂😂

  • Thank you for sharing your Aldi shopping with us. You did great! Your family is beautiful, and I just love watching your videos of everything you do with your beautiful family!

  • $55 is good for a fill up! I filled my diesel f350 up for a total of $67 with 30 cents off a gallon the other day. Ugh. 🙄

  • Love your videos but Can you really call this a healthy haul? I mean the first 2 things you showed where pizza and icecream and then you got stuff for tacos and spaghetti. It's a good haul but not really healthy.

  • Those lashes looking like butterflies on top of your Baby Bluessss! I wish I could hop in the van and pretend to be one of your children! You're just such a fun momma!! x0x0x

  • How do you deal with picky eaters&or eating issues??? I only have 2 kids and they have feeding/eating issues disorders my son way worse then my daughter texture brand ect … we go to psychologists ,dieticiatians, nutritionists , you name it…so that makes shopping n cooking just for 2 kids extremely expensive and tricky(my son is also Fructose intolerant) Just wondering if u have any dietary issues

  • Loving all the videos you're getting out! I hope you will still be posting homeschooling ditl's! I know you are focusing your channel on food but I love your day in the life's and week in the life's!!

  • Can you make anymore obvious that you are wearing false eyelashes in the first minute and 45 seconds of your video?? Ha ha

    I though you were going to fly away by batting your eyebrows so much..lol

    Cute video!

  • Jamerrill, this is one of the best yet for fill in foods! I need to be doing this as well..Tomorrow can’t come soon enough! Lol
    Jamerrill, I need your help!! I don’t know if you have done this or even know how I can accomplish this…I need to loose between 10 and 12 lbs in 2 weeks. Less time if possible. Lol Do you know how this could be possible? If so, what do you suggest? Now I have an ileostomy so i can’t just eat anything. Nothing with nuts or seeds. I have looked online and YouTube, I need and prefer simple! I have never tried a can of tuna with avocado, that sound so good. Anyway, if you know…please share.
    Thank you Jamerrill xo

  • Anyone else try and resist watching to stacked up a few so you can watch more at one time? Its hard but I love love love watching a mini marathon while I'm working because I often work super late at night. Thanks Jamerrill for sharing your family with us and helping to encourage other moms with all the things you do and how you make it work. I started my own small business and channel and its hard juggling work and family sometimes! (I'm NOT trying to plug my channel at all!)

  • I'm in Virginia too! We got lucky and only got around an inch of snow. I was very happy but my kids still missed school Monday.

  • My daughter lives in VA and was telling me she got that spaghetti sauce on sale for 45 cents but it was regular price in New Jersey $1.45 a jar for those small bottles it's cheaper in the grocery store lol

  • I love watching your videos! I wish you would check out my channel! New homeschool mom here. I learn so much from your videos!

  • How awesome she’s small enough yet big enough to stand in the back to help momma load up – brilliant!! Amelia reminds me so much of my oldest when she was little, now a teenager studying to get her drivers license…oy!! but still mommy’s little helper! She can be taller than me but still my little roo! So many blessings to you and yours! You truly are a ray of sunshine and glimmer of hope and help for the rest of us mommybears out here 🙂

  • You have 8 kids, but I have only seen the 2 girls..2 youngest boys..and sightings of your oldest boy..that's 5..I have never seen the other 3?

  • I love watching your grocery hauls because sometime I may see something that I haven't tried that I want to try and I'm like you more so not really but when it comes to spaghetti I can eat it four times a month my husband say I eat it too much I just had it again yesterday and day before and I'm going to have it again today because their leftovers for 3 days anyway I said to myself the other day I'm going to cook spaghetti at least once a month or every other month now because I eat it too much too starchy I need to slow down on it spaghetti and pork chop suey is my favorite meal thank you so much for sharing your grocery hauls I love them just saying

  • How much does it cost to buy a whole cow to eat? Do they cut and prepare the meat portions for you? Im so interested in this.

  • Fantastic haul. Love how organized you are. I'm sure you have to have very well thought out shopping trips and meal plans to keep everything on track! Great job!

  • You did really well at those sales, Jammerill! Love your channel. The kids, your wholesome approach to life. So inspiring..

  • You are so lucky to be able to buy store brand. My oldest daughter has food allergies. She is 28 now but it was very hard in the beginning. No peanuts, no sesame seeds, milk and tree nuts. She out grew the milk and sesame allergy. She lives with the nut allergies.

  • Yay ! I’m glad you have an Aldi — I was watching some of your other videos and wanted to suggest Aldi because the prices are comparable if not better than bulk shopping! 🙂
