Shopping Trip Today - Aldi's, here I come!

June 5th, 2008 at 05:44 am

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!

    The first thing that I do when DD gets home from school on the last day is go through her book bag (where she cleaned out her locker) and get all the good leftover supplies and compare it to her supply list for next year (we get it the last week of the current year). I usually only have to replace spiral notebooks and glue sticks, etc. Everything in good shape is reused--folders, pencils, scissors, etc.

    Don't forget your quarter for your shopping cart! Do you carry your own bags to tote it all home in?

    Please note that Aldi ONLY accepts CASH and DEBIT cards. Plus EBT. ("welfare"/food stamps) No checks or credit cards.

    Also, from what I have heard/read elsewhere, not all Aldi's take debit cards. Some people insist that "their" Aldi only takes cash and EBT.

    Nahhh, some Aldi's take Discover card too.
