Aldi Shopping - $0.25 Avocados - Aldi Savings Linky Delayed

This has been a bit of a crazy week and I am way behind in my blogging work, so I apologize for getting the linky up late. My youngest son has suffered on and off from a stomach flu for about a month, and this week it just got crazy again. It got so bad that I had to take him to the doctor, and finally after getting some Florastor Kids (which btw is an over-the-counter medicine), his stomach seems to be getting better. I can highly recommend it. 

On top of that I am preparing for visitors, as my dad and his girlfriend will be arriving tonight from Europe. My middle son thinks my dad will get here tomorrow, so he is going to get quite a surprise when his grandfather will be there for breakfast. 

This also means that my shopping has been a little bit different this week, but I am a strong believer that there needs to be room in the budget for fun times.

As for great Aldi deals, I hit the produce deals this week, and I also snagged up avocados at 0.25 a piece. They definitely have to be used today or tomorrow, but I guess they will be incorporated into tomorrow's dinner. I was amazed to see that Target has cheaper eggs, flour, sugar, brown and powdered sugar than Aldi this week - I sure hope Aldi will lower those prices again soon.
