    Has Brigette every done a “get to know me” post? For some reason I’m thinking I’ve seen you say she is your sister or sister-in-law, maybe. Does she have a blog page also? Just curious.

  • AngelA says:

    I’m always intrigued by the price difference in different areas, even in Aldi, here in Maryland you would add about 50 or 60 dollars to that grocery haul! I wish I was a better couponer! But I still love Aldi!

  • CJ says:

    I’m jealous of anyone that can get milk for $1.31 a gallon. It’s at least$1-2 more at any store where I live. And eggs for .55 a dozen? Eggs are always at least $1.30 at my Aldi.

    • Brigette Shevy says:

      I know – prices vary so much based on where you live! Normally the eggs are running $1.09 at Aldi, so I’m not sure why they were so much cheaper this week. I’m sure they’ll be back up again next.? But milk is definitely cheap here in the south.

  • Martha Artyomenko says:

    Yummy! Do you have a recipe for the Crockpot Italian chicken?

  • Cindy says:

    It sounds like we would all like to get to know Bridget a little better. I always look forward to her posts. Love that her children are responsible for their own breakfasts AND the cleaning up after!!!

  • Mgt says:

    It sounds like we might all want to become more acquainted with Bridget somewhat better. I generally anticipate her posts. Love that her kids are in charge of their own morning meals AND the tidying up after!!!
