Aldi's

Unfortunately you can't use coupons at Aldi's but they usually have the lowest prices on produce and staples which rarely have coupons.


Here is what I bought:

2 dozen eggs, 1.29 each
1 bag of apples, 3.89
3 cans Tuna, .57 each
1 Moo Tubes, 1.89
Milk, 3.29
6 Cream of Chicken/Celery, .49 each
4 Cucumbers, .39 each
1 Bag of Sweet Potatoes, 1.99
Bananas, 1.53
Grapes, 2.98
1 Bag of Onions, 1.69
Celery 24 ct, 1.09
Green Peppers, 1.49
Watermelon, 3.99
2 All Purpose Flour, 1.79 each

Total OOP: $39.37

Target:

Okay, so I still had some Pop Tart coupons left, as well as a bunch of Keebler cookie coupons. Since I have two kid birthday parties coming up very soon, I decided to stock up as they are either free or extremely cheap. I took advantage of their sale, buy 4 for $9 get a $5 gift card.



So this is what I bought:

10 Poptarts, on sale 4/$9
- 5 MF Qs $1/2,
- 10 Target Coupons .50/1
(the combination of these coupons and the $5 gift cards makes these free)

12 Rice Krispies, on sale 4/$9
- 6 MF Qs $1/2

14 Keebler Cookies
- 7 MF Qs $1/2

2 Glad Freezer Bags, on sale 2.39 each - 1 Peelie Q $1/2

1 Pepsi, 1.32

Also used: $40 in gift cards from previous purchase

Total after coupons: $25.98
Total Gift Cards Returned: $45.00
True OOP: $20.98 (Total + Gift Cards Used - Gift Cards Earned)

Awesome savings! We are getting an Aldi at the end of the month. I've never been, but I've read so much about them!
