Hi! I'm Alli, a wife and mom of two from San Diego. I've been married to my husband for 10 years, and we have a 9 year old daughter and a 7 year old son. I grew up in a house where cooking never really happened, so I taught myself at age 23. I absolutely love cooking and meal planning as well as sharing my favorite foods! Everything I feature is simple, uses everyday ingredients and won't break the bank. It's also mostly kid-friendly and great for feeding a crowd!
A few years ago my husband and I started loosely following the Dave Ramsey baby steps, which transformed our food budget. I was able to cut our grocery spend in half, if not more. I share just about everything on my Instagram Page, but one thing you will always find is inexpensive and budget friendly snacks, foods and recipes.
In October 2019, I was in a major rut at my corporate job. I hated what I was doing and needed some sort of creative outlet. I created the Grocery Getting Girl as way to build my creative outlet while also sharing my tips on budget food. A few weeks later I was laid off which such a blessing in disguise. I used my severance money to start up my own business and never looked back. What started up as hobby has now turned into an amazing community.
Keeping food costs as low as possible will always be on my mind. I also share my real-life weekly meal plan's, and many of the recipes I share are direct requests from that. If there is anything in particular you would like to see, just let me know.
Thanks for being here!
