Let's Go Shopping!

I was in dire need of some essentials today. I've had a few people ask me if a trip to Aldi was really worth it. I think it is!

Once again, I was the weirdo taking pictures of food at the market. I do this for you!

They are a German company and they have fantistic beer & wine. I dare you to find a better one for the price.

Their mac & cheese is way better than Kraft, I think. It actually tastes like cheese, not salt. It's creamy and really quite good for a boxed mac & cheese.  And at this price? It's worth a try. These are all regular coupons or sales needed!

I make a really fantastic sausage gravy (it would make a shoe taste good, honestly) and I put it on these biscuits all the time. They are really quite good. Low fat too!!! THIRTY EIGHT CENTS!
They have a clearance aisle and a clearance refrigerator section. Look what I found there today! These are usually $4-$5 a package!  99 CENTS!
Here is my cart of groceries. I bought 5 grocery bags because I am going to attempt to make my own "Frugal Gourmom" shopping bags to use today. They cost $1.99 each.   They are so nice & huge too! See them at the front of the conveyer belt?
Here is my reciept.  I got ALL of these essentials for under $42. Now do you think a trip to Aldi is worth it?
