Aldi Trip 4/14

I know I have been pretty MIA around here the past few days, but my daughter and husband were sick on Monday and then I took a couple of days to catch up on the house work.  I also cooked a turkey and have been trying to come up with creative ways to use it in recipes...more on that later.

I was thoroughly unimpressed with all of the grocery ads again...for the third week in a row!  I'm really needing a good sale around here.  Maybe next week...

With the lack of grocery store sales, I haven't been doing much shopping lately, except at Aldi.  I went this morning with a long list of items that I was going to need to make about 5 different recipes (and I will still have turkey left!  Eek!).  I also picked up a good bit of their fresh produce that was on sale this week, including 3 lbs of strawberries @ $0.99 each, a $0.99 pineapple, and a $0.79 cantaloupe.

Here is everything I got today.  Notice that the kids didn't even let the strawberries get put away!  The bag in front has plums that were $0.39 each!  So glad they are coming back in season.

I really thought that I was going to completely blow my food budget for the week on this trip.  I was expecting to pay around $60 for all of this stuff, but my total only came to $42.87, and that is including coffee and bacon!

Add that to the $17.25 I spent at Aldi earlier in the week, which included two racks of ribs that were marked down $5 off each, and my trip to the 99Cents Only store, which cost just over $4, and I have only spent about $65 for the week!  $5 under budget, and I didn't even use a single coupon!

I'd love to hear about your shopping this week!  Leave a comment below.

Now if you'll excuse me, I have a napping toddler and some turkey to be dealt with. ;)
