Understanding Being Frugal – Aldi Shopping Trip 11/11/09

My dear wonderful husband went to Aldi last week for me. I asked him to pick up a gallon of milk and to check on the cost of butter.  During the holiday season butter usually goes on sale and my price point is under $2 (4 sticks 1lb).   He said no problem will be happy to do that.  I wanted at least 4 lbs if it is under $2. I got home later that evening to discover that he bought milk for $2.29, 4 lbs of butter for $1.69 each,  and lots of other things!  I was happy that he found some good deals like 10 bottles of Winking Owl wine for $2.99 each.  We will enjoy that.  And, he picked up some snacks for lunches but at the end…

Aldi Shopping Trip 9/4/09

Before I started to use coupons I would go to Aldi on a regular basis.  In the NOVA area, we have 4 Aldi's now and originally we had 2.  It is a great grocery store!   Not many people know what I'm talking about when I say, "Aldi", usually I get, "What is that?" or "I know Aldi, VA!".  Then I explain the Aldi store and the history of it. Did you know that one of the brothers that started Aldi is the owner of Trader Joes?   It's true.  You can even find Trader Joe like products at Aldi.  Joe Coulombe was the founder of Trader Joes and later sold it.  More information about Aldi and its german history HERE. What is Aldi?  Click HERE for a quick tour.  You can…

Lidl has come to Northern Virginia

I'm a huge fan of Aldi, the german discount supermarket.  I have been going to my local one for over 11 years and most friends that know me, know that it is my favorite grocery store in the area.  It is one of the closest stores to my house and it has 98% of what I need.  I have written a couple posts about Aldi in the past.  I plan to write some more.  I adore Aldi and I know you will too. If you already know Aldi then you might have heard that Lidi - Aldi's competitor is now in the US.  Lidl is a German global discount supermarket chain, based in Neckarsulm, Germany.  It now has arrived in the United States and in 2017 will establish over 20 stores…

Store Makeup Brushes for under $2

  Check out this cool trick.  Taking a flower pot and adding rice into it.  The rice  holds the makeup brushes up.   I suggest enough to make it about 3 inches deep so that brushes don't tip over easily. The cost is under $2 since you use a cup or so of rice.

Meal Planning 5/21/2012

This is week 21 on creating a meal plan for the week. This is a busy week but slow week since the weather has been raining.  Hoping the rest of the week will be a bit nicer so we can go outside some.    I'm excited to say that I got a lot of birthday freebies like I did in 2009 that I will be using in the next couple of days before they expire.  (I wrote the post back in 2009 so some of the freebies aren't available anymore and some new ones are.  So I plan on writing an updated version soon. )  I got a coupon for a FREE burger at Ruby Tuesdays,  and a FREE meal at Silver Diner!  Looking forward to enjoying those. Monday: Breakfast: Cereal…

Dollar Tree: $1 Finds for Housekeeping and All Made in the USA!

This week I ventured out with all 3 kids to the Dollar Tree, PetSmart and then Aldi for some grocery shopping.  The kids were wonderful!  I was hoping to do everything before lunch time but it was cutting it close.  I had to take a break for snacks and then again on our way home before we did lunch.    Next time, I promise myself we will leave earlier.  I'm a little fearful when the twins start walking because I'm sure they won't want to stay in the stroller. I went to Dollar Tree to check out some cleaning, organizational products, and pick up some yard sale supplies.  I was excited to find that they had their version of Oxyclean, a liquid Dishwasher soap and a black cleaning bucket.  The best…
