I also shopped at Aldi yesterday for my groceries...great prices and great value! I appreciate seeing your menu and what you picked up, I was doing great with planning my menu and then shopping - fell out of the routine the last few weeks but need to get back because it really does help stick to the budget.

I really need to start budgeting a bit better when I go grocery shopping because right now it's a free-for-all in terms of what I spend. This looks like a great deal!
