Today we did our bi-weekly run to ALDI, and while we love ALDI, we are still hoping that they will soon build an ALDI closer to us. We go through a lot of fruit and vegetables every week, and without ALDI, we would definitely have to add at least $20 to our grocery budget each week.
Our freezer is still filled with great high-quality Zaycon chicken breast from our recent Zaycon meat pick up, but there was room in the freezer for a few other things than just chicken breast, so I picked up a few things at ALDI for the boys in the family. Bellamy Blue is still on my vegetarian diet, and my husband is not protesting as he has been with all of the boys. Will she eat meat eventually? Probably, but I am in no hurry to introduce meat into her vegetarian diet – it feels so nice to have a second vegetarian in the family.
I was thrilled to find the large butternut squash back at only $1.49 a piece….and not per pound, which it is at many other stores. We also bought xx lbs of bananas, as these are great now that I am starting to work out again.
As an extra bonus, ALDI had a freezer full of $0.79 deals that had been marked down. Spinach rigatoni, mushroom rigatoni, waffle fries, onion rings, waffles, and a bunch of the frozen meals. Wow, what a steal. I picked up lots of rigatoni, plus a few bags of onion rings waffle fries.
