This week was sort of a mini shopping trip. We had a lot of leftovers in the fridge, as well as a ton of fresh produce; so I just stocked up on a few things to at least get us going through the middle of next week. I still have about $30 left in the budget, so that’ll help if we need to go back out for something!
I did all of my shopping on Thursday because I wasn’t able to Friday. You should have seen how many people there were at Aldi! There was a big snow storm coming Friday night, so everyone was out all at once to get what they needed. I kind of did the whole “Buy bread and milk” thing; not on purpose, but I knew we were running low. And now we have enough stuff to last us awhile! Here are the two stores I visited this week:
