Day Forty-Nine

April 10th, 2016 at 11:28 am

Calories: 1495

I went to Aldi yesterday and spent $36. For that nice, low price I bought: kitty litter, paper towels, frozen broccoli, frozen asparagus, frozen beans, frozen peas, a sweet potato, an onion, pizza sauce, blue cheese dressing, ranch dressing, applesauce, fresh mushrooms, celery hearts, tortellini, chocolate eggs (left over from Easter), salsa, jarred red cabbage & apple, creamer, Greek yogurt, and teriaki marinade. Certainly not ten items, but they did fit into my two cloth bags. Except for the kitty litter.

From there I went to Jewel to use two coupons that gave me a free jar of peanut butter and a free loaf of bread.

After unloading my groceries I walked to the library. Unfortunately, I met a panhandler with a great sob story and I ended up giving her $20. I always have a hard time turning down a woman. It might have been for real, who knows? Anyway, when I opened my change purse, $20 was all I had, so that's what I gave her.

Today I invited my son's family over for games and tuna salad, but it is too busy a day for them, and we'll do it next Thursday night instead. So I have a nice, lazy day ahead.

    That was a lot of food for that money. You are so good to panhandlers. I will have to reexamine my conscience.

    I love how far the dollar goes at Aldi - and I love that red cabbage with apples! German week is my all time favorite there.

    I read about how Aldi's is changing over much of its inventory to healthier foods...have you noticed any change y et?
