We were completely out of milk, so I made a quick stop at Dillon's today to buy some. I prefer to buy my milk at Dillon's (or Braum's), so that is one item I am not going to buy from Aldi's.
While I was there, I went ahead and picked up some bananas (I have never had good luck with Aldi's bananas) and a bag of store brand tortilla chips. The chips are only $1, which is a hard price to beat anywhere.
My total cost for this trip was $9.16.
My resolve to primarily shop at Aldi's did have a positive impact on this trip. I stuck to my list and did not even stop to consider picking up any other items (even though they do have Townhouse crackers on sale).
