March Grocery Haul Part 1- Aldi. March 13, 2015

As I mentioned a few times, this month is a “stock up” month at the grocery store. We still have some money left from February’s grocery budget, but I haven’t even touched that yet, despite doing some major freezer stocking. With warmer weather quickly approaching, Tiffany likes to be ready for grilling season. We are pretty set on regular groceries for the month too, so I am trying to watch for sales and put our extra money towards those items. ( Side Note- Frozen Food Month is pretty much the most unexciting sale ever for me)

I made a trip to Aldi on an unexpected morning off last week. I went to Wegmans over the weekend and I will share that later because it would be a bit too much at once. I am considering doing a video for my meal haul next month. I wasn’t quite organized enough to do so this month.

    I blog about grocery shopping, too! So fun to see what others are buying 🙂 I have an Aldi near me, but rarely shop there. I might need to this weekend!
