Aldi's Update

June 5th, 2008 at 01:50 pm

Well, I stuck pretty much to my list, but added several other days of dinner (prices were great on ground sirloin and turkey - so I added a batch of chili and meatloaf muffins to next week's menu) and I got two weeks worth of canned dog food.

The milk was $1.99 per gallon and I bought five. By far the cheapest around here, other store have it for $2.28 a gallon with a $10 purchase. I went hog-wild with the produce buying green and red grapes, two batches of strawberries, bag of apples, head of cauliflower, pint of grape tomatoes, two bags of carrots, two cucumbers and a bag of romaine hearts.

All in all, I spent $78. Which is awesome for my budget! I did get namebrand Colgate toothpaste or $2.20 and namebrand Smart Balance for $2.69, plus premium Kraft mac & cheese for $.79. Also snacks for one of my Kidd-Os soccer game on Saturday (two boxes of namebrand Rice Krispy treats for $4) Also decided to try their version of tombstone's personal pan pizzas. I pay $6.50 for those at Walmart and bought them here for $4.99.

I did have a quarter, and I had to use $33 on debit card over my cash stash. The cashier was very nice and didn't snurgle a bit splitting my payment method.

I will be going back to Aldi's again definitely.

    I cannot help but wonder at 5 gallons of milk!

    Family of seven - five under ten - expiration date is the 20th - we can use as much as 1 gallon per day depending upon whether or not I am baking from scratch which I do a lot and the kids do drink a lot of it!

    That's great. I looked for an Aldi's around here, but we don't have them.
