I’m currently challenging myself to stick with a $70 budget for our family of six (two adults, two teens, a pre-teen, and a baby). This includes almost all of our breakfasts, snacks, and dinners + most household products (toiletries, feminine products, etc.). Jesse and I usually eat lunch at home. The kids have lunch at school.
So many of you have begged me to do another Aldi shopping trip, so this week — since I needed to buy a lot of basic ingredients — I stopped by there for this week’s shopping trip. (Psst! Have you seen my post on my 25 Favorite Things to Buy at Aldi?)
Since we had a lot of ice and snow last week, I had heard that the delivery trucks had trouble getting through to some grocery stores — and that was very obvious by the produce section. (However, the produce section was the only section that was really sparse.)
I was excited to find some marked down meat! I had been hearing from people that Aldi has been doing lots of markdowns recently, but this was my first time to find it myself!
I also found these heart-shaped pizzas marked down by 50% so I bought two and we had them for dinner on Saturday night.
