Albertsons Stock Up Sale 2019, meal planning for busy weeknights

Each summer, I long for the routine of the school year. But what I tend to forget is the craziness of the school weeks. All too often, I end up making multiple stops at my neighborhood Jewel-Osco to pick up odds and ends—especially for quick breakfasts and snacks. So this year, one of my goals is to do better at preparing for a busy week ahead.

Must-Have Monday

To prep for the week ahead, I plan to make sure I have all of my weekday essential prior to the start of the week on Monday. This makes busy days and weeks much less stressful and I save time because I’m not constantly running to the store just for one or two things. Some essentials I always make sure to stock up on include:

  • Coffee
  • Cereals, yogurts and other quick breakfasts
  • Plenty of snacks for the kids to munch on after school and between activities
  • Ingredients for quick and easy lunches and dinners
  • Salad fixings
  • Our favorite beverages
  • Laundry detergent because #momlife

And because I always want to make sure that I’m getting the biggest bang for my buck, I always shop the Stock Up Sale at Jewel-Osco! This way I’m not only saving time but also money. I love shopping this sale because I know I will find great deals on a wide selection of products. What makes the Stock Up sale such a great sale to shop is that you can find all of your favorite staples, like General Mills, Pepsi, Pepperidge Farm, Folgers, and Tide, at a great value.

These are just a handful of products I found at my local Jewel-Osco during the Stock Up Sale. Most are breakfast, lunch, and snack essentials, but some, like the Pepsi, are a fun treat that I decided to splurge on. You can even download the Jewel-Osco app and utilize the Just for U savings tool to find personalized deals and special offers.

With these tricks up my sleeve, I’m already feeling like a better mom as I’m preparing for a busy week ahead! The routines run more smoothly and I’m saving money!
