Today's Shopping Trip

I went grocery shopping today knowing that I needed to only buy essentials and the things I needed for making laundry soap (I still need washing soda) and decorating for Christmas. I went to Aldi's, Target, and Dillons. I am hoping to do a post on our homemade Christmas decorations soon.

The produce I bought is not organic, but sometimes you just have to take what you can get.

Nice deals at Aldi's. I am excited about going there later in the week.
I may try the laundry soap recipe in the future--after using up what I have.

My DH & I are doing our best to get back on a dedicated budget... I'm planning to drastically cut my grocery portion of the budget back. Thank you for the inspiration!
