My patience paid off and a bit of grocery shopping
This past weekend, the Dollar tree was completely out of eggs. I unexpectedly returned to the city, so I stopped in on Monday-still no eggs, their shipment came in all cracked. I turned back to Aldi's (last price this past weekend was $2.69/large doz) out of desperation as we were down to one egg in the house. Patience paid off as the price of eggs dropped to $1.99. I grabbed 2 more dozen. Nice.
Today (Tues) found me back in the city, and needing a few staples. We stopped in at Price Rite as we were closeby. I bought: 2 gallons milk, 2lbs brown rice, bananas, 4 29 oz cans B & M baked beans, honey, 4 boxes brownie mix, Goya chicken bouillon, 2 tubs ice cream, a jug of ice melt for the front steps, a small jar of peanut butter to keep at work, 3 boxes jello. $37.70.
