I stopped by Aldi expressly to stock up on fruit and a few other staples. I was sad that they were completely out of the $0.99 pineapple and $1.49 strawberries, but happy for the great deals on apples and oranges. I might have to make another trip to get the strawberries and pineapple as they told me they’d be getting in another shipment tomorrow.
Here’s what I ended up getting:
Chicken Breasts — $5.49
Milk — $2.80
Three bags of apples — $1.29 per bag
Paper Plates — $1.29
Tortillas — $0.99
Kidney beans — $0.55
Cream of Chicken soup — $0.59
Applesauce — $1.19
Two bags of oranges — $1.49 per bag
Oil — $2.29
Butter — $2.38 (Yikes! This is much more than I usually pay. Must. look. for. a. sale. on. butter. stat! Or, buy a milk cow. :))
Carrots — $0.99
Two cans of refried beans — $0.69 each
Raisins — $1.49
My total was $30.34 including tax.
And no one flip out that I bought plastic plates, okay? We’re going to be hosting some folks for meals over the next few weeks and I just decided to make it easy on myself and stick with plastic so we didn’t have to mess with dishes when we had company.
Also, those of you who are observant will notice I bought oil. It’s been months since I’ve bought oil, but I’ve been hankering for some Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins and they just really taste better with oil instead of butter or applesauce or coconut oil. So I caved. Yes, I did.
