Last-minute trip!

Supposedly one of the great things about couponing and stockpiling is that you never have to make a separate trip - you have everything you need at home.

Well, I guess then my stockpile needs some work, because I found myself making special trips over the weekend to pick up items for a birthday party and for the Passover holiday.

I went to Walmart and ALDI. ALDI wasn't all that crowded - again, I worry about the store's future in my area. Walmart, on the other hand, was packed; I had trouble rolling my cart within the aisles and almost ran into people several times. (Can you tell I'm used to shopping on weekday mornings, when I have the stores practically to myself?

I didn't use coupons for any of these items. ALDI doesn't take them, and I checked but couldn't find coupons for the items I got at Walmart.

So here's what I got:

2 dozen large eggs @ $1.29
2 apple juice @ $1.29
2 butter quarters @ $2.29
1 strawberries @ $1.59
1 gallon milk @ $1.99

Total spent: $13.32

1 box candles @ $1.32
1 snack plates @ $1.97
1 grape juice @ $2.48
1 8-oz sour cream @ 88¢
1 package cocoa @ $2.42 (ALDI was out of cocoa!)

Tax: 20¢
Total spent: $9.27

I actually got eggs cheaper at Target this week. They have eggs for $1.19.

I hope you will link up your Aldi savings at the
The Aldi Spot.

@JR - I know! And there was a printable coupon for eggs that I could have used as well. But I simply didn't have the time to make another stop, and I needed milk which is far cheaper than any other source. I will probably stop by Target later this week and pick up some eggs at the lower price.

Oh you are so right about that egg coupon, I gotta go see if it is still there...then I'll pick up more:) Thanks for the reminder. Is it at Smartsource?

I completely get it with the milk, Aldi simply cannot be beat on that.

Did you notice the flour went up...again!
