WIC Items: FREE
We adopted our son 1 year ago. We found out with our girl’s adoption that even after they are adopted and out of the foster care system, they get to keep their WIC until they age out at 5. So our son gets to continue to be on WIC for 1 more year. We are very thankful for this.
Aldi’s Trip: Spent $18.71
Avocados: $.25 each! WOOHOO!
Cucumbers: $.29 each!
Also, I had a bad container of sour cream from Aldi’s last week, so not only did they give me a new one… they also gave me my money back! That’s $1.29 BACK! YAY!!! Seriously though, being on a $40 per week grocery budget makes every dollar important!
GRAND TOTAL FOR THE WEEK: $38.79!!! Plus, I got $1.29 back from Aldi’s! = $2.50 leftover!
