Aldi’s Meal Plan

By July 17, 2009July 25th, 2017Cooking, Menu Planning

On Monday, I shared my Aldi’s Menu Plan. I am participating in the  All You Grocery Challenge, trying to stick to a budget of $25 per family member per week. For our family, that’s $125. I usually am way under that, so I thought I would give it a try. Plus, I could win $1000 grocery card.

I thought it would be easier for me if I posted my meals and costs, and that way you can get some ideas on how to cut your grocery costs.

Here is what we had this week… starting with the shopping trip
