ALDI SPOT UPDATE


I wanted to give all of you an Aldi Spot update, as I have not been around much lately. My blog Frugality Is Free has taken off big time this spring, and between having all three of my boys home for the summer, the blogs and my other writings, I needed to find more time somewhere. For this reason, I have decided to give the Aldi Spot a break.

I am still shopping at ALDI though, and I still post ALDI posts, you just have to find them at Frugality Is Free instead of here.

You can find my latest ALDI posts here:




I want to thank all of you, who have followed me here at the Aldi Spot. I am so thankful for all of your support, and you are the reason, why I have kept on writing. I have been debating about taking an Aldi Spot vacation for a while, because the truth is that I am not superwoman. I want to be the best mother, wife and writer that I can be, and with everything else in life, it is important to evaluate where time needs to be spent.

ALDI Stock Up Trip



ALDI was my first stop today, and since it would be a while until I got to my final stop at Walmart, I could not choose anything that had to be kept cool. I did buy sliced 8 oz Havarti cheese though, because it was cheaper than the regular 8 oz block of Havarti at ALDI. I had a cooler bag with a frozen water and some juice for lunch, so I simply put the cheese in there to keep it cool.

My ALDI Shopping Deals:
Seedless Watermelon $2.99
Blueberries $1.39
Taco Shells $0.99

Florida Aldi Produce Prices:


This week's Florida Aldi produce prices is all about the fresh fruits, and with summer vacation just around the corner I cannot have enough of it in the house. My kids go through a lot of fruits, and I don't mind keeping the fruit bowl full at ALDI prices.


Thankfully our mango tree in the backyard is helping out a bit, as it is throwing down a ripe mango once in a while. Check out these mango muffins that I made with my youngest son yesterday.
