Do you ever just punt on dinner while you’re out shopping because you just don’t feel like cooking? Yeah, I admit it.

And maybe some of these here grapes…

If anyone knows of any McD’s selling them – please post it on MUM!”

Random stuff from ALDI today — fridge organizer bins and pizza

aldi-fridge-bins

Stopped at ALDI today and bought a couple of the fridge organizing bins. On the right: Shredded cheese. (Yes, I went a little nuts on the $.49 Jewel cheese back when and bought eight… lol.) On the left: Lunch fixings for Junior High guy, including gluten free bread, lunch meat, mustard, apples, carrots. I like these bins, and may go buy more in different sizes. Yeah, they’re $4.99 each, but I need all the help I can get and have been meaning to do something with my poor fridge.

I also shopped hungry (never, ever shop hungry) so impulse bought this SimplyNature uncured pepperoni pizza for $3.49, then had some for lunch.

photo 3

It’s a lot smaller than its box, but aren’t they all… I added mushrooms, a little more cheese, garlic, red pepper and it wasn’t bad — I don’t think I’d pay $3.49 for it again, but would say it’s pretty comparable to the thin crust Culinary Circle from Jewel, but with uncured pepperoni and a less sweet sauce (which is a plus for me!). Oh, and as far as the mushrooms: The Villa Park ALDI on Roosevelt had sliced mushrooms on clearance for $.69, which looked a little old, so I only bought one. And if you’re buying the $.99 per head cauliflower, dig for a nice big one!

Bought a lot of stuff with expiring coupons shopping

9-3-petes.jpg

So I went to Pete’s Market today because I found four $3.00/2 Galbani printables in my stash (no longer available, but you can print $1.00/1 here) that were expiring in the next couple of days and I didn’t want to waste them! Four of the mozzarella balls are already in the freezer, one will become Caprese salad today or tomorrow, and we’ll see on the rest. I also had three expiring $1.00/2 Planters printables, so used those on peanut butter.

  • Note: The Vermont organic applesauce cups listed at $.99 in the ad rang up at $4.39 — they corrected the price at checkout for me after looking at the ad, but you might want to bring the ad up with you if you were planning to buy those today as well.

$.49 Avocados at ALDI — the nice ones!

aldi-avocados

I just wanted to mention how nice it is that when ALDI drops their price on avocados — like on this week’s $.49 each sale — they don’t truck in a new batch of inferior poor quality produce for the sale, but run that price on the good avocados they have every day. I may or may not have bought 10 this morning!
