Aldi Run

January 20th, 2018 at 06:27 pm

Aldo's run today wasn't so bad.
I picked up paper towels for about $1.20 less than Wal*Mart, a bottle of salsa for dip, about a dollar less and cream cheese about $2 less. Saving about $4. Not bad

There was a time that buying generic was a big no no for me, not anymore. It makes no sense to pay for a brand items that are just as food as off brands. I forgot to buy Lysol wipes for the counters, I'll just improvise.

For my birthday my coworkers got me a birthday cake and then the SO bought me one, so I'm stuck with two cakes 🎂. I decided to have friends over tonight for cake. Normally I'd go all out get some appetizers but not tonight, it's just cake and wine with a little dip and chips. I made sure I told everyone we are just having cake.

Other news, I've been using my planner a lot lately, and it's been helping with getting things done. Cleaned, shopped and read all before noon today.

Now it's time to relax before tonight's get together

    I make my own cleaner for stuff like counters, windows, and mirrors. I fill a 16 oz bottle half full with white vinegar and add 1 squirt of dish soap and fill it up with water. It cleans as well as any commercial cleaner and doesn't leave behind a chemical smell or toxins.

    Happy birthday! You can put in a few drops of essential oils if you have any. I like lavender.

    Sounds like you have a good plan to get rid of the cake. Smile

    You are getting smarter! I'm sure your friends enjoyed the cake and the company!

    Just so you know, you can freeze cake if you ever have too much.

    Like crazylibrarylady, I also make many of my own cleaners as well as laundry detergent.
