OK — today was shopping day!
I hit Aldi and the bread outlet (I know, I missed the 25% off discount day but really needed bread!)
Needless to say, I missed the strawberry picking so I got eight packs of strawberries at $.99 along with four packs of blueberries at $1.29, two cantaloupe at $.99, one watermelon @$3.99, bananas @$1.15, the asparagus looked amazing and was $2.39 – nice thin and tender stalks! Add a bag of rice snacks and a bag of veggie chips for a total of $26.27. That is thirtyone pounds of fresh produce for abut $.73 a pound. I LOVE that store!!!
Then came the Village Hearth bread outlet…
Cottage Bread for the hubster, Cinnamon Raisin bagels and New England whole grain bread for me and the munchkin. The 2 packs of buns are for my Mom – she is having a cookout this weekend and asked if I could pick them up for her – so MY total is $5.17 (I could have saved $1.30 – sigh). She owes me $2.80.
That would put me in at 58% under budget..so far, 35% under budget for the challenge.
That should be enough to blend with the mulberries,
end of of the rhubarb and make some plain old strawberry jam!
