As I mentioned last week, I'm trying to limit myself to one ALDI trip per week. And I thought I'd be able to do that this week. I made a trip a couple of days ago and picked up the basics - milk, eggs, juice, and bread. And I thought I was done for the week!
But then, my plans to buy cream cheese at Publix went awry. The sneak peek ad showed that the Publix brand cream cheese would be 99¢ for an 8-oz brick, 20 cents cheaper than ALDI's regular price of $1.19. So even though I was out of cream cheese, I decided to wait to buy it at the lower price.
But when I got my local ad and posted my Best South Florida Publix Deals post, I found that my local price for the Publix cream cheese was $1.50 - 31 cents higher!
I also found that I needed garlic powder - I used up all of it making my own unrefried beans. Garlic powder is a staple in our house, so of course I had to stop by and get some...
And I was glad I did, because I found some good produce deals there this week! I bought romaine lettuce, tomatoes, and peppers - so I didn't have to make a special trip to buy produce.
Here's what I got in my two trips:
3 dozen eggs @ $1.29 = $3.87
2 gallons milk @ $2.89 = $5.78
1 apple juice concentrate @ 92¢
2 canned mushrooms @ 59¢ = $1.08
1 juice pouches @ $1.79
1 2-lb green grapes @ $1.78
2 whole wheat bread @ $1.29 = $2.58
Total spent: $18.01
1 romaine hearts @ 89¢
1 3-lb Fuji apples @ $2.79
1 garlic powder @ 99¢
1 tray Roma tomatoes @ 89¢
2 cream cheese @ $1.19 = $2.38
1 2-pack green peppers @ 89¢
Total spent: $8.83
