Aldi Trip 1/2

Somehow, we had run out of a lot of things at my house.  Most importantly were bread and milk.  My husband was supposed to stop by Aldi on his way home from work on Saturday, but he forgot.  I was going to stop after church yesterday, but they were closed, so we've been without bread and milk for a few days and have added several other items to the list as well.

I also made my menu this morning (posting in a bit) and grabbed nearly everything I would need for it at Aldi.  They only thing I could not find was red beans!  The Hispanic groceries don't sell them either (only place I went last week, so I'm hoping for good sales so I have a reason to go to a big chain this week.)

Here's everything I got at Aldi this morning:

Spent $48.77.

This will be the first entry in my 2012 Savings Tracker.  Since it was Aldi, it will still show a savings of 0%, but I know that I saved just by shopping at Aldi because of their low everyday prices.

That's great that you are keeping track Amanda.

I was so excited about saving more than $7000 on groceries in 2011, and I am definitely keeping track this year as well.

Last year I saved $555 by shopping at Aldi compared to the lowest prices at my regular grocery stores. That's about $10 a week, which to me is a lot of money in the grocery budget.

I'm going to go look at your price list and try to calculate my aldi savings and just make a note in my tracker. I also save a lot by buying my meat and produce at the local hispanic stores, and I don't even have a basis to calculate those savings, so its just about eating well and staying within the budget there I suppose. =) You have great savings!
