I succeeded in keeping my grocery budget at $50 this week… mostly! I’m attempting to make a month of freezer meals in March, so I’m saving up $10 a week to have enough money to cover the upfront expenses of that. I had left a little wiggle room after the bulk of the groceries, and then Aldi happened with their clearance specials. Let’s see what I got this week!

Quick question: Where do you buy the DeLallo Potato Gnocchi from?

I had actually bought a bunch of the Aldi brand a few weeks ago when it was on clearance, so I'm using that! I'm thinking you can find the DeLallo brand from any grocery store, like Kroger or Meijer.
