Oh, Aldi, How I've Missed You!
I got lazy over the summer, and in an attempt to consolidate my food shopping, went exclusively to Wegmans, and supplemented with whatever came in our CSA share. Now that the school year's back in session, and easy lunches need to be made or brought every day, I need to be a little less lax, and for some items, Aldi is definitely the more cost-effective choice.
For example, my husband brings a ham and cheese wrap with pretzels to work every.single.day during the school year. I can buy all the ingredients for his lunch for less than it would cost to purchase comparable items at Wegmans.
According to the above list, I will save $4.81 by shopping at Aldi only for my husband's lunches; not including anything else that I can find there. For more information about Aldi/Wegmans comparisons, check this post
Here's what I actually bought this week:
Yeah, we go through a lot of cheese. It's pretty much the only thing my 20-month-old will eat, so we have shredded cheese, string cheese, sliced cheese, and block cheese. So, yeah. Lots of cheese. I was also excited to see Nature's Path organic granola bars for only $2.39 a box. I love when I find random organic items for deep discounts at Aldi's -- don't forget to check the special bargain bin!
Total Spent: $26.49
