This was a mission that I had to accept budgetwise ;) Out of my budget for this week I used a good chunk at Publix last week, so I decided to go into Aldi's with $20, and call it a day. Seeing as I had the troops with me I know [and you probably know] this is a feat in itself! After years of being a soda drinker I quit. I just don't even like it anymore honestly sometimes I will have a jonesin for some Barq's rootbeer, but all in all it is just terrible for you. Rambling...so here is our trip including DH additions[really he always does, but he wants to go so how can I not lol].
2 gallons milk 5.78
2 cream cheese 2.89
2 cheese puffs [DH addition, but compared to 3.00 in the store he is learning ;)] 1.98
1 bag M&M [DH :S] .99
1 bar milk chocolate [DH I am so weird that I don't care for chocolate much lol] 1.49
1 dz eggs .74
4 soda 2.36
1 glorious spiral ham 5.49
Over my $20, but I had change in my purse...does that count ;)
Now let me say something. I wasn't going to buy that ham. I really wasn't [I swear!], after all I only have twenty bucks! Needless to say that ham has given us 3 dinners, and 2 breakfast meals. So dinner on a budget....gotta love it! ♥
How did you do this week? Any lovely guilty pleasures? Any recipes for a ham bone other than soup? Making pot beans tonight, but with the leftovers I carved off the bone. Really Phoebe [our baby yellow lab]is eyeballing it on the counter making me a bit nervous.
