Seriously, what a great shopping week! I planned a lot of my meals around the 2 pizzas and chicken fries I bought on clearance at Aldi last week, so I didn’t have to buy much for dinners. I stocked up on a lot, taking advantage of Kroger’s current mega sale, bought a couple things for dinners for next week, and still kept it under $50! Come see what I got.
