Have you noticed food prices have crept up since the holidays? I was just checking out the local supermarket flyer and noticed what used to be buy 2 for $4 is 2 now $5 or 6. Glad I stocked up during the holidays.
One of things on my to do list this year is to check out Aldi supermarkets. I know I’ve been saying this for over a year, but one of these days I’m really going to shop there.
If you’re wondering how the Aerogarden is going… a few days ago I noticed the first shoots starting to appear. The basil seems to be growing the fastest. I’m already thinking about how I’ll use the first harvest. (I’ll post more photos next week).
On my must do list for this week is putting together menu and shopping lists for the week, even two weeks at a time. In fact, that will be one of the topics on this week’s Budget Smart Girl. I’ve got so many projects going right now, I’m looking for easy dinner (and yes, budget friendly) ideas that will free up some time.
Also, on the site this week, I ‘chat’ with a green cleaning expert about ways to save money on cleaning your home.
Have a good week.
