The Weekly Trip!

This includes both Aldi and Dillon's this week. Usually I find such great produce marked down at Dillon's, but this week there wasn't any, so I headed on over to Aldi where I always know I can find great prices and good quality on produce! I will probably head to Hy-Vee when I do my weekly CVS run. Here is what I got so far for the week:
  • 5 cans of Van Camp pork and beans marked at .19/can (3 day sale!)=.95 (we love baked beans in the summer time!)
  • 1 pack of Kroger deil ham=2.19
  • 1 bag of Kroger popcorn kernels=1.59 (we love fresh popped popcorn as a snack!)
  • 2 Lipton sides marked at .74/1=1.48-.60/2 coupon doubled to 1/2 =.48 for 2!
  • 2 8 oz. bags of Kroger shredded cheese marked at 1.58/1=3.16
  • 1 package of Ball park franks=2.00-1.50/1 catalina=.50!
  • 1 box of suddenly salad=.53 after coupon
  • 1 dozen large Dillon's eggs on MS for .49! (looks like I will be making deviled eggs for our Sunday school class cook out tomorrow night!)
My total was 10.82. Total savings from vendor coupons and store coupons was 9.82=49%!

Aldi Trip:
  • 1 loaf of wheat bread=.59
  • 1 bag of tortilla chips-.99
  • 1 bag of chocolate chips=.99
  • 7 bananas =1.08
  • 2 cucumbers marked at .39/1=.78
  • 1 bag of 6 oranges=2.49 (a little more than I like to pay for oranges, but we needed something besides all those apples I have been finding for such a good price!)
  • 1 pint of grape tomatoes=.99
  • 1 bag of baby carrots=.79
  • 2 lbs of green grapes=2.98
  • 2 cans of green beans at .39/1=.78
  • 1 box of cake mix=.79
  • 1 box of dog biscuits=.99
Total was 15.35! I could try and figure out what I saved by shopping at Aldi, but I don't have that kind of time:) I can tell you that I probably spent half of what I would have had I paid full price at Dillons- totally worth the extra mile to go to Aldi!

Again this week I did not need much. I continue to be amazed at God's provision for us! So far for the month of June I have not had to buy much, but our meals have been plentiful! Be sure to visit Super Savings Saturday for other great buys!

Yum! I LOVE deviled eggs! It's going to be a good cook out. :)

And I'm impressed with what you got for $10 at Dillons. This was the first time I looked at the total and thought "Really? All that?"

I am always amazed at God's provision too!

Great job on your shopping!
