Lemme start by saying I stopped at Aldi so I could buy some more provolone cheese to try out this Stuffed Asparagus Chicken. As you can see… I didn’t do very well. For somebody only needing one thing I sure did leave with a lot of stuff! Anyway, here goes:

  • 3 Sliced Cheese $1.99 each
  • Eggs $0.69
  • Light Brown Sugar $1.29
  • Honey Wheat Bread $1.39
  • Wicked Grove Cider $6.49

  • 2 9″ Graham Cracker Pie Crusts $1.19 each

  • Chocolate Syrup $1.49 (I thought this was chocolate SHELL. I’ve already thrown it out.)

  • Canola Spray $1.49
  • Fusia Sauces $1.49 each (these are new to my store – can’t wait to try them)
  • Fusia Bean Sprouts $0.79
  • 40 oz. Creamy Peanut Butter $2.99
  • Total Spent: $37.02


I meant to post this sooner but forgot. My bad. I say that because the sale changed today so you won’t be able to grab these deals for yourself. I originally went to grab the mushrooms for super cheap but as usual, I lost my damn mind in the store and walked out spending far more than I intended. Oh well… here’s what I got.

Mushrooms 69¢ per pack (I’m making crock pot mushrooms for my super bowl pot luck)

Italian sausages $1.99 per pack (these are so good, we love them on the grill)

Green Onions 99¢

Garlic 99¢

Green Peppers 99¢

Shredded Cheese $2.39

Potato chips $1.49

Organizer Shelves $4.99

Jumbo Raw Frozen Shrimp $5.99 (You can’t beat it. And that’s their regular price. They’re good shrimp too!)

Friend of mine was heading to Aldi and she was kind enough to grab me a few things:

  • 1 bag Grapes $1.98
  • 4 bananas $0.50
  • 2 Caesar Salad Kits $1.49 each
  • Final Cost: $5.46 

That’s a great deal if you ask me. All that produce for just over $5. Besides Aldi, I really only ever see prices that low at farmers markets (another great reason to shop local).

It was the last Saturday for the Old Trail Indoor Market. I made sure I went and got some of the meats. I didn’t grab any the last time I went and I regretted it.

  • 1 Rosemary plant
  • 1 Parsley plant
  • 1/4 lb Green Garlic (like scallions only garlicky)
  • 2 Hydroponic basil
  • Handmade Chorizo
  • Handmade Italian Chicken Meatballs

Final cost @ $27.00 – Pricey but that’s what you get when you buy local sometimes.  I wanted to buy them all – they had delicious, meaty samples out – but resisted the urge. It wasn’t had to do when the handmade meats were practically $9.00 each.

On the bottom left of the photo is my haul from Home Depot:

  • 4 – 4″ Adjustable Metal Worm Drive Clamp $1.67 each
  • 35 pc 3/4″ construction screws $1.94
  • 1X6 – 6ft. Common Board $2.96 (I had it cute into 4 – 18″ pieces)

Final Cost: $12.36

These are materials for making a mason jar garden. You can read more about that project HERE.

On the top part of the photo is my haul from Aldi:

  • 1 bag of Grapefruits $3.49
  • 1 bag of Lemons $2.79
  • 1 bag of Spinach $1.49
  • 2 bags Raw Jumbo Shrimp $5.99 each
  • 3 pkg. Mushrooms $0.99 each

Final Cost: $14.19

I was grabbing ingredients for a detox drink I was making. You can see more on the Grapefruit Lemon Detox Drink HERE.

I left the office thinking I was going to Giant Eagle to grab that deal I posted on Uncle Bens Rice (on the facebook page). Well, I completely forgot the coupon I needed to do the deal. I know what you’re thinking, “you could buy the rice now and take the coupon back another day (within 7 days).” Yes. I can but I decided not to because I didn’t want to make two trips. Instead, I’ll print a coupon from home and make the stop on my way to work in the morning.

Anywho, I remembered that I wanted to grab a bike pump from Aldi. Well, $30+ dollars later and I have this:

  • 1 dozen eggs 89¢
  • 1 bunch green onions 89¢
  • 2 pkg of Mixed Peppers $1.29 each
  • 1 Caesar Salad Kit $1.49
  • 2 jars pesto sauce $1.69
  • 1 bunch cilantro 99¢
  • 1 pkg Roma tomatoes 79¢
  • 2 avocados 49¢ each
  • 1 bag broccoli crowns $1.69
  • (3) 4-pack plant stakes $2.99 each (not pictured)
  • Bike Pump $7.99 (not pictured)

Final cost: $31.78

Guess who’s gonna be eating her weight in shrimp and avocado salad for the next week 😬 All I need to make another batch is another bag of raw frozen shrimp.

Unfortunately, I had to return the bike pump. It only works on 3 brands of bikes – mine isn’t one of them.

There was nothing too exciting in the Aldi circular this week in my opinion. But I did go grab their 4″ indoor plants for $1.99 each. The selection was limited. Only 3 plant varieties to choose from: Neanthe Bella palms, snake plant and arboricola (aka inmbrella plant). Lucky for me the palms were perfect for the project I had in mind. 

I bought four of them and after taxes my total came to $8.50.

During my last trip to IKEA I picked up a trio of THESE hanging planters. They were $9.99 each. 

I have them hanging in my kitchen windows and overtime I’ve been planting in them. They look great and they’re sturdy. Initially I wanted to use them to plant herbs in for use in my kitchen. 

In one of them I planted arrow heads and pothos. Both of which appear to be just fine in this container. 

In the second planter I planted asparagus fern and parsley. These plants are also doing very well. 

And in the third one I was planting seasonal things like small mums, Christmas cactuses and so forth. But now I think I’ve found some forever plants for it. 


I think the palms look great, don’t you? It’ll work for the time being anyway. You can’t exactly prune these m because they only have one source from which they grow so if I were to cut off the top then the plant would stop growing. But I’m sure I have a while before they get too big. They can hold the space until I can find some healthy kitchen herb plants to go in the planter. 

Honestly, I’m just glad to have something planted in the planter. And they didn’t cost an arm and a leg!
