Princess Does the Shopping

My weekend was super busy and so with just a teensy bit of trepidation, I sent the Princess to Aldi with my grocery list. I told her she could go head and pick ot a few snack type items, but to not go overboard. Here is what she got:

2 Pasta Shells Entrees
Cheddar Rice Cake Snacks
 Mini Muffin Pouches
Nacho Tortilla Chips
Mini Rice Cake Snack Packs
Cheese Dippers
2 Shells & Cheese
2 Alfredo Sauce
Beefy Macaroni
Shredded Mozzerella

All in all I think she did okay. She got everything on my list plus her junk food, with some "healthier" junk food mixed in. The only thing I was going "REALLY?" over was the mini muffins. That's way too much to spend for something that takes about 10 minutes and 75 cents to make. I consider it a "teachable moment" on cost vs. value, so I'll still chalk that one up in the "win" category.

Grand Total Spent: $30.98


  1. I always shop for party food for birthdays etc. at Aldi. No one cares what brand it is anyway once it is put in the bowl.

  2. Princess did a good job! Can't wait till my oldest can drive so she can run a few errands, too!
