First shopping trip of the week was to Aldi, where I spent $26.28. That leaves $13.72 in the budget, which is enough to cover the rest of the things we need (milk, eggs, fruit). We also have a $20 credit at Kroger from getting a prescription filled that we'll probably use to stock up on soft drinks and some other non-essential items this week.

I love your deals from Aldi! We have one about to open here and I can't wait. It's opening on the 21st. I probably won't have any budgeted to spend there this month but looking forward to saving next month!
God bless,

Aldi is awesome! I moved here 9 months ago and this is the first time I've lived near one. It definitely helps us with our grocery budget.
