Gretchen’s $85 Grocery Shopping Trip and Weekly Menu Plan

Aldi Trip #1

I had to go to Aldi two times because while I was there the first time, I had to rush home so my husband could leave. So that’s why there are two Aldi trips this week! 🙂 It worked out in my favor though because the ad switched today so there were different produce sales! (And our Aldi is just one block from our house which is why it wasn’t a big deal to go back. I love having Aldi so close!)
