Aldi Produce, Frozen and Refrigerated Food (not pictured: 1 gallon milk)
I purchased less produce this week because I stocked up on sale meat as you will see below. I still have carrots, cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, avocado and apples leftover from last week.
Other Aldi Grocery Items
I have a small amount of cooked black beans in the freezer (read here how I prepare beans in bulk for the freezer) but I bought a can to supplement what I have for the BBQ Black Bean Tostadas I will serve this week.
I have not been very happy with Aldi meat lately. Last week I had to return two packages of pork chops and a package of boneless, skinless chicken breasts because they were both spoiled when I opened them. The chicken was my fault because I did not pay attention to the sell by date (it was the next day) when I purchased the.
Aldi graciously gave me a credit for all of the meat which was $27.75. My total spending at Aldi for this week was $69.26, but with the credit I only spent $45.20 out of pocket.
Winn Dixie Meat and Other Grocery Items
After the bad meat from Aldi I was happy that Winn Dixie had some super low prices for our area this week. I was able to get chicken thighs for $1.29/lb, ground chuck for $2.99/lb and boneless pork loin for $1.99/lb.
You might be concerned with processing large quantities of meat, but it is really simple. I cooked half of the chicken thighs the night I purchased them and placed the other half into freezer bags to freeze for later. I also placed the pork loin into the freezer for later.
The day after I prepared the almost 15 pounds of ground beef. Read here How to Freeze Ground Beef.
Now I have meat for several meals in the freezer.
Weekly Total: $120.36
August Monthly Total: $392.41
I am under-budget for the week but slightly over for the month so far (average of $131 per week so far).
