Dollar Tree trip
right next door to Aldi's is the Dollar Tree store. I am SO happy that they FINALLY are offering boxed milk (not just soy) sold in quart aeseptic boxes. While this equals $4/gallon, it is much more palatable than instant milk, which I DO use in baking/cooking. I like to keep this on my emergency shelf, especially come Winter. $4 for milk so as NOT to have to stop at the store is fine as $4/gallon milk is very easily found as fluid milk in CT. This is one of the brands we received through Angel Food. I also grabbed more AA batteries as we are running low, a 10 ct pkg of rough scrubbies.
Under household goods: business envelopes, a sympathy card, a new 2013-14 planner for me, a Halloween themed bookend for one son, who is enamored with the holiday.
