There have been lots of posts about Aldi's the past few days. I am finally serious about THE BUDGET. I have tracked expenses, I have budgeted the numbers, I have lost interest, get the idea?
We are low in the fresh produce dept. I am heading to Aldi's simply to hit their produce stand and dairy (plus a loaf of bread). I can be in and out of there in a few minutes with minimal distractions. I am sure that I will be able to stay under budget.
I am heading out with cash (I am nudging my way to the cash in the envelope system) I am heading out without my children. Great opportunity for bonding time with Grandma.
Yesterday was last day of school for most of them and I collected items in good working condition and rounded them up for August. Looks like I won't have to buy that many things (like scissors and stretchy book covers). And the school uniform store is taking 10% off purchases now through July 12. I guess a truly frugal purchases has a roving list aand isn't pigeon-holed into seasons for shopping.
Have a good day!
