ALDI: Two trips and still forgot stuff

I made two trips to ALDI this week. I'd really like to keep it to one, but somehow I keep forgetting a few things and running out of milk and eggs, so back to the store it was today. And when I got home and put things away, I discovered that we only had a little cream cheese. Oops, should have picked up some of that, too! It will just have to wait until next week.

Here's the two trips:


Trip 1:
2 gallons milk @ $2.19 = $4.398
1 package cheddard cheese @ $2.79
1 package salmon @ $4.49
1 cottage cheese @ $1.99
1 strawberries @ $1.39
1 almonds @ $3.99
1 applesauce cups @ $1.29
2 kidney beans @ 55¢ = $1.10
2 refried beans @ 79¢ = $1.58
1 whole wheat bread @ $1.29

Total spent: $24.29



Trip 2:
2 gallons milk @ $2.19 = $4.38
1 gallon-sized bags @ $1.89
1 package farfalle @ 89¢
1 cottage cheese @ $1.99
1 bunch bananas @ $1.14
1 5-lb all purpose flour @ $1.78
1 strawberries @ $1.39
1 flour tortillas @ 99¢
1 alfredo sauce @ $1.69
3 dozen eggs @ $1.19 = $3.57
1 whole wheat bread @ $1.29
2 package juice pouches @ $1.69 = $3.38
1 3-lb apples @ $2.99
1 apple juice @ $1.49
1 jar sprinkles @ $1.99
2 black beans @ 55¢ = $1.10
1 sandwich bags @ $1.89

Tax: 43¢
Total spent: $34.27

Total spent: $58.56

I ended up spending more than $50 at Aldi this week as well. I was out of a lot of stuff, and I just got all that I needed. I kind of blew a hole in my budget, but at least I have been within the budget or under for the past many weeks.

Thank you for linking up at the Aldi SavingsLinky at the Aldi Spot.

Okay. I have to ask. what do you use so many flour tortillas for? You're constantly buying them!

@Michelle - My kids love quesadillas as a snack. Put a bit of shredded cheese over half of a tortilla, fold over, heat in the microwave for 25 seconds, cut into triangles, voila! The ALDI tortillas only come 10 in a pack, so we go through them fast. I will also make bean burritos for dinner sometimes.
