Last Grocery Trip of the Month

October 28th, 2022 at 02:31 pm

My friend decided that she was going to drive herself to the infusion center, so I did not drive down there to be her chauffeur. She's an adult, so I respect her decision. I have already heard that she made it there and back safely.

So that left me free to perform my final grocery shopping trip of the month. I spent $23, bringing my total for the month to $99. I went to Mariano's, because I wanted to buy popcorn. While I was there, I bought other things I cannot buy at Aldi. 

Here is the SHORT list of what I got:

Popcorn (bag of kernels, not microwave)



Bay's English muffins

Kozy Shak pudding

That's it!

I will say the creamer came in a large bottle -- 2 quarts! It was the best unit price. It should get me through next month easily.

I bought the butter, even though I still have a couple of sticks in reserve, because it was on sale, and I expect that butter prices will just get worse.

I bought some non-food items as well. I spent $13 on Halloween cards and candy (counted as a gift). I spent $19 on face serum -- probably not the best place to buy that. I should have waited till I got to Walgreens.

What I did get at Walgreens -- a fresh bottle of B12, which cost $12.

I have plenty of food in the freezer and pantry to make meals this week, so don't worry about my weird sounding list. Smile

    It seems like you do a great job planning meals and using all that you buy.

    Well done, CB!

    You were wise to get the butter...I think you are right that prices are going to increase. There was an article saying there might be a butter shortage due to fewer farmers raising dairy cattle because it is cost prohibitive and there isn't enough butter in reserve. Same with cream and all those things that go along with it.

    I always thought it was weird Aldi never carried popcorn kernels.

    Thanks Petunia!

    I also think it's weird that Aldi carries microwave popcorn but not kernels. I think of them as a stock-up store, so I expect basic stuff!
