My Really Big Shopping Trip Today

Since I started this blog, I haven't posted very many shopping trips that I've done.  Maybe that's because the sales haven't been very good recently.  Or maybe it's because my husband (he's a teacher by day) has been subbing every single night at evening school, and I haven't felt like dragging the kids out with me.  Whatever the reason, I realized that I simply must go shopping today.  I had looked at all of the sale ads trying to decide what to get here and what to get there, but finally I decided that I would just grab whatever I could find at Aldi and call it a day. 

There were ALOT of things that I needed, so I knew I was going to spend alot of money today, but sometimes these things just cannot be helped.  My cats need to eat after all, and trash bags and laundry detergent and toilet paper are pretty important items.  In the past, I have always had to do one of these large stock up trips on pay day (which is around the 27th of each month) so to begin with I'm proud that we've been able to put it off so long this month.  Also, I usually have over a page on my shopping list, and end up spending well over $100 even buying mostly store brand items at Wal-Mart.  This time I only had about 3/4 of a page, but some were pretty costly items.  I knew if I went in Walmart it would take a really long time, and I didnt feeling trekking through there with two kids in tow, so I ran in Aldi assuming I would still be missing a few things on my list, but they would have to wait until later.

I was really surprised though.  I was able to find everything I needed and then some.  I really hope my cats like their cat food, because I certainly wasn't making a special trip just to go get Purina. =)  Here is everything I came home with.  In all I paid $81.66 for all of this.  Not incredible, but not too bad I think.


*Note:  While I was writing this, I looked at my receipt and noticed that I had been charged for two boxes of trash bags when I only bought one.  I cannot find a phone number for the store either on the receipt or online (strange) to call and ask about this, so I guess I will have to go down to the store one day.  I'll let you know what happens with that. 

Also, I did make one more quick trip today when my husband came home briefly.  It was pretty impressive, and I will post that a little bit later.
