This week was a bit of an odd one, when it came to shopping, but the grocery budget sure liked it. I only shopped at Publix and at ALDI, and I did so with gift cards from blogging promotions, which kept my out of pocket low. I know the title is a bit misleading this week, but I really did not know how to put it….and frugal shopping usually includes a bit of creativity.

Thanks to the gift cards and blog promotions, I was able to get $210 Worth of Groceries for less than $5 out of my family’s weekly grocery budget. I love shopping with gift cards, but I never take the value of a gift card literal, as it can always be stretched for extra value.

  1. Amazing savings!!

  2. Hi,

    Great savings!

    I’m curious to know what you are referring to when you mention “blogging promotions”?


  3. Great savings!
    What are you referring to by “blogging promotions?

  4. I keep meaning to check out ALDI as I have one nearby. Do you have a newbie ALDI post? I’m not sure of their couponing policies… thanks!

    I’m adding you to my weekly link-up and following your blog now!

    • Ashley, thanks for adding me to your weekly link-up!

      ALDI does not accept coupons, but if you need low-cost foods without the hassle of using coupons, then ALDI is definitely for you. I have put together a grocery price comparison, where you can see which products are lowest priced at ALDI. You can find it in the top navigation bar under GROCERY PRICE LIST. I hope this helps, I always use it as a reference, whenever I do not have a coupon for something.
