Weekly Shopping Report from Joe

We made our trip on Saturday, as usual. The first stop, also as usual, was Dollar Tree. Stock looks good there, from the shelves to the coolers, for both food and drinks. The store was busy enough for the one woman working a register to holler for “All to the front!”

Our second stop was Hobby Lobby, where Sonia added some stencils for her crafting. She actually found the ones she wanted in the baking area, and those are a lot cheaper than the ones in papercraft aisles.

We skipped Home Depot, but looking online a 2x4x8 is unchanged this week, at $3.48.
Aldi was last. I don’t think the produce looked anywhere near as good as in recent weeks. Most of the bananas were very green. The cantaloupes looked old and wrinkled, and the few bags of green grapes left just didn’t look that good, so I got a bag of dried dates instead. The chocolate section continues to diminish, but an alternate I like was available. Staple prices were: eggs: $1.11, milk: $3.02, heavy cream: $4.69, OJ: $3.19, butter: $3.29, bacon: $3.99, potatoes (10 lbs.): $5.59, flour: $2.19, and sugar: $3.09.

A gallon of untainted regular gasoline remains at $3.899.

Frugality Tip from Margo

Traveling can end up costing a lot of money. With the choice of hotels over Air BNB, hotels sometimes look like a better choice. But when you get a house you have a kitchen and most of the time a washer and dryer. A trip to a local farm stand and/or a grocery store to buy food to cook will actually save you money over eating out. And you know what you are eating. So way in your meals on you choice of hotel vs. Air BNB and you will find a few more dollars for a house, is actually a savings.
