Trying to stick to the essentials
Out this morning for a physical with my gastro MD; all's well, keep doing what you are doing, see ya next year. Great. So, I continue to try to eat healthfully. I stopped in at Aldi's for a top up: sugar, blueberries, kiwi, tomatoes, cukes, apples
2 jugs milk, organic yogurt, sour cream, fzn haricot verts, fzn Prince Edward vegetables.
Popped in at Dollar Tree next door (looking for a planner; spoke with manager, they should be out/stocked by the end of the week). Meanwhile, I grabbed 2 bags fzn peppers/onions.
Over to WM, my least favorite option to purchase clear, covered storage tubs for my new garage storage shelf. Ridiculous amount of $ for plastic. At least they were made in the USA. I also bought a replacement can of shower gel and "oil of Olay," trying their private label brands to save $. The shower gel is about what I'd pay elsewhere after a coupon, the lotion, however, is over $4.50 LESS than the name brand. That is significant! I compared ingredients, this is definately a knock off version. Hopefully, I will like it.
