Shopping Trip- Kroger, Meijer & Aldi- HUGE Savings!

Best Blogger Tips
Here are some shopping trips that I have already made for this week. I am over budget by about $15-$20 this week, but there were are few things that we were out of and I needed to get them!And of course my husband just had to have his ice cream, that was not on sale, but hey when you are saving $1,000's of dollars each year, it is OK to splurge every once in a while! As long as he doesn't make a habit out of it!! HEHEHE!

Looks like you got some great deals this week. Come on over and link up if you are interested! I am trying to stay in a budget of $50 for 4 people.

Great deals! Our strawberries at ALDI only made it down to $1.49, and we only live a couple hundred miles from where they're grown. I was happy to get them at that price
