At the right place, at the right time
This afternoon found me bringing kidlet in to the city for an appointment, which meant that we would literally drive right by Price Rite. I don't like Aldi's regular quarts of yogurt, and don't care for Greek yogurt, which they also sell, so I knew that PR would be on my list of places to get to. Someone also suggested that I try baking goods there, now that Xpect is no longer an available option for me.
We hit the store at the right time! Here's what I bought:
4 5 lb bags unbleached flour (I prefer unbleached, so I don't buy from Aldi's)
4 cans ck of the sea albacore @ 99 cents
1 can sliced pineapple (for Easter)-Aldi's was out
a jar of chopped garlic in EVOO
a HUGE head of cauliflower $2.19
5 lbs of carrots $2.50 (cheaper than Aldi's)
2 quarts low fat, vanilla yogurt
5 lbs Eastern potatoes $1.69
But the best find:
5 pkgs of marked down, ground pork
4 pkgs of marked down, sweet Italian sausage meat (out of casings)
I was out of grnd pork, sausage, meatballs for the freezer.
I have frozen this meat, and intend to make some trays of meatballs this weekend, and freeze them for future meals. I got the aforementioned meats @ 40% off. Nice.
Spent $45.15 today.
$85.18 remains in my reduced budget for the month. Will only increase SHOULD I get my reimbursements. Some treats were recently bought, but are earmarked for the twins and the one kid who does pay me, and on time.
