My little one saw the $0.99 Strawberries from Aldi's and polished off a whole pint before dinner! Good thing I bought 3 total!
We have some friends coming to spend 3 days with us, so I got the approval from the hubbie to spend more than $40 on groceries this week. I ended up spending $74 total.
Some great deals I found were the strawberries from Aldi, the mangos were $0.79 from Aldi, the Fiber One yogurt from IGA in my previous post was a steal, and the bananas were $0.45/lb. at Aldi.
Also we hooked up 4 boxes of Frosted Mini Wheats from Schnucks because they were $2/box and I had a $1 off coupon, making them $1/box! To sweeten the deal - if you bought 4 boxes you'd get a $2 off your next grocery order! So I got 4 boxes for $0.50 each!!
Our meals planned for this week are:
Cereal, Waffles, Scrambled Eggs, Toast, and more cereal
Ham, Pepperoni, Cheese Sandwiches
Mac and Cheese (boxed)
Green Bean Casserole
Pork n Beans
Corn on the Cob
Oatmeal Rasin Cookies
