Before my trip back to Sam's Club to pick up a few items I decided to hit Aldi. One of the things I like about Sam's Club is that I can pull items up online and tally my purchases before I go. This also alerts me to some things that I can buy for less elsewhere. Eggs are cheaper at my local Aldi, chips are cheaper, and milk is cheaper. I don't have storage space for huge crates of eggs from Sam's Club and the chips bags are just too big. The lactose free milk (store brand) is a better price at Aldi.
2 boxes of oatmeal squares
3 packages of fruit popsicles (for my grandson's visits)
3 bowls of cool whip (yes, I know. However somethings are simply good with it.)
1 package of frozen sausage patties (these make quick heat and go)
1 bag of Honeycrisp Apples
3 boxes of saltines
2 cartons of milk
1 can of cocoa powder
4 boxes of jello
2 packages of coffee
12 cans of peaches
12 cans of pineapple
3 dozen eggs
3 cans of lemon pie filling (this will be for quick parfait type desserts)
5 bags of chips (1 bag is for a casserole and then one per week for the month)
4 boxes of Stevia packets
8 lbs of carrots
In total I spent $98.23 with most of the items going either in storage or into this months meals based on my menu.
My mistake...... I had stopped at Dollar Tree before Aldi and passed up the stevia packets there. They are 35 to a box for $1. They would have been a better buy, but now that I know next month I will buy stevia there.
At Dollar Tree I bought:
4 9 inch disposable pans
1 bag of pretzels
2 cans of pringles
1 box of high fiber cereal
2 bags of steak fries
2 bags of tater rounds
Total was $11.37
The only thing they didn't have that was on my list for there was the 2 gallon sized storage bags. I will probably check the store closer to Sam's Club when I go to finish up my shopping.
