Quick trip to Aldi

July 4th, 2022 at 11:22 pm

I was planning to hit up both Aldi and Walmart today; however, the oldest kiddo asked if I could watch the baby for about 90 minutes while they hit the gym this morning. I can never say no to that sweet girl. So we hung out, ate pizza, and watched Lilo and Stitch until they came and picked her up.

I then made my way to Aldi, and they had everything I needed. Of course, NONE of it was the brands I am used to, but that's okay. I am treating this like a challenge. 

I decided to NOT do drumsticks tonight since I have plenty of frozen chicken breasts, so we are having "fried" chicken, mashed potatoes, corn and corn bread. I only needed to purchase the potatoes and the corn bread mix for tonight. I tried really hard to shop out of my pantry first. At the end of the day, I spent $59.11 at Aldi, and came home with 29 items. Two most expensive things? Paper plates $5.79 (we won't make a trip to Costco until next weekend likely - that's where we usually buy them) and bacon ($8.85 - OUCH. Thick, center cut for the husband - he's lucky he's cute!).

Okay, off to clean the kitchen and then make our 4th of July dinner!

Happy Independence Day, fellow Americans!

    Great that you trekked to Aldi! We like their produce, dairy, and meat products especially, but I often buy flour and sugar and other baking supplies there.

    Curious about the paper plates...was that just for the holiday or do you use them on a regular basis?

    Oh, and do you use money back apps like Fetch?

    @rob62521 - I bought some baking things a few weeks back - prices were good! Smile We do keep paper plates on hand all the time. And I do not use money back apps... never really looked into them.

    Fetch is probably the easiest, at least in my opinion, as far as money saving apps. You just snap a photo of the receipt and you get points. It's basically free money.
