A quick grocery stock up this weekend
A quick stock up/replenishing this Saturday (yesterday). With funds tight, I tried really hard to stick to the list. I hit Aldi's: 2 gallons 1 % ad 1 whole milk, 2 doz eggs, stick margarine, 2 bags fzn large shrimp (Xmas), 18 ct pkg TP, 4 fzn OJ, 2 pkgs of marked down pork chops (on tonight's planned menu anyway), 2 pkgs marked down chicken thighs, 2 neufchatel, 1 "pam" spray, swabs, celery, walnuts (PRICEY! but wanted for Christmas), 2 boxes granola bars, 2 'splash" juice, 2 cran juice, mushrroms, cinnamon, mandarins (fresh). I spent $77.31.
I also went to Dollar tree next door: 2 3 ct packs of Kleenex pocket pack tissues, 1 3 ct pkg night light bulbs. I spent $3.19 there.
$45.84 remains for groceries until the end of the month. I will need milk, 1/2 and 1/2, bread flour, OJ (after using up bottled grapefruit and pineapple juices), ground pork for meat pies. Really making an effort NOT to overspend.
