We go through so much produce at our house, that we cannot fit everything in the fridge on shopping days. However, two days later, the fridge begins to look empty again, and after a week it is surely time to stock up again.
Today was our bi-weekly visit to ALDI, which is a bit of a drive away. I surely wish we had an ALDI store closer to home, as it would help us save on produce, meat and dairy.
Still, without a bi-weekly ALDI visit, we would end up spending at least $20 more on groceries each week. While $20 may not sound like much, it all adds up. I love how we can get more than 20 lbs of produce each week at ALDI, without breaking our grocery budget.
Did you notice that ALDI now has a selection of gluten free foods?
