Proverbs 31:14 She is like the merchant ships, bringing her food from afar.
Derrick and I have started doing most of our shopping at Aldi's. We go there to buy most things and then to Wal-Mart to get everything else Aldi's doesn't have. One day after shopping at Aldi's we decided to go to Wal-Mart and actually check if and how much we were saving. We took in our Aldi's receipt and priced checked every single item.
After checking each item, there was only one thing that was less expensive at Wal-Mart and it was only by a penny!! We calculated our total savings and it turned out to be $18! It may not seem like a TON of money saved, but when you are on a budget, it's totally worth it.
Here are some examples (off brands at both places):
Cranberry Juice $1.69 $2.28
Frosted Flakes $1.79 $2.48
80/20 Ground Beef $2.69/lb. $3.28/lb.
What are some ways you like to improve your family's quality without devastating your budget?
