We finally took down all the Christmas decorations yesterday. It took quite a bit of time too. Whew, taking that one wreath down was hard work...lol. seriously, all we did this year, was put up my snowman wreath...easy peasy
We decided to go to town today. So off we went.
I saved sooooo much money today.
Wanted to go to the new Aldi's.
I found graham cracker crusts, for $1.19.
The cheapest that I had ever found them was $1.49 at Save a lot. i BOUGHT 10 OF THEM, SAVING $3.00
Then I found juice sweetened canned fruit, peaches, crushed pineapple and I bought mandarin oranges too., 89 cents a can
I bought a case of each of those, oh, and fruit cocktail too. 89 cents a can. Save a lot was over $1 a can.
I bought a case of vanilla sfff pudding mix, at 55 cents a box. Save a lot. They are 59 cents a box at Walmart. So what is 4 cents times 24 boxes...that is what I saved. only about $1.
Saved 20 cents on 5 pounds of flour at Aldi's too.
Hubby wanted a pizza for supper. A very large supreme, $5.99 at Aldi's.
so yes, some things were cheaper, quite a bit, but not all.
I don't know anything about investing my money, and we do not have much to invest anyway.
A big way that I save money, is to remember what prices are and which store the are in.
I think I need to make a price book...I have put it off for a long time.
I can save quite a bit on groceries each month. My way of investing my money.
Now, you are all probably just bored to tears with this message.
But if finances are tight, or you just want to save money, make a price book, or remember prices. I am going to start with a price book today.
I bought nothing else besides groceries...stocked up. I hate finding one of JoAnna's recipes, and not having the ingredients for it.
