Trip 1 for the week had me in new haven. I planned ahead took the cooler and ice blocks and hit Aldi with a list. Picked up 3 cartons on OJ the not from concentrate kind. Hope the kids like it - it's so much less $ than Tropicana. Also 3 blocks of cheddar, 2 bags of ciabatta rolls, 2 bags of the mini cucumbers on special (16 oz for $.99), bananas, more chocolate chips, blue corn chips, organic type corn chips, sweet potato chips, low salt wavy chip, oyster crackers, tissues. Not too bad $39.
I wanted blueberries but they were sold out. Also wanted plain raw almonds and grape tomatoes but those were unavailable too. Skipped the muffin mix and bottled water today - pantry is ok for those items.
I was bummed out because I need vanilla low fat yogurt and all they had was Greek style, artificial sweetened or whole milk style. Guess it's a trip to ShopRite for that.
Also hit Walmart for milk on my way back from a morning errand and dropped almost $17 on sliced ham, markdown Kaiser rolls ($1.39/6), milk, 8 small coconut yogurts, I know! Could have done better at ShopRite. Not in my planned driving area this week.
We are trying the Aldi cihips - I don't like them eating them so much...both because they're not very nutritious but also they get expensive!! Hopefully these will last until school starts.
