I didn’t really need laundry detergent right now but for $0.99 I figured I’d get it and put it on my stockpile shelf in the basement. Texas Toast are our favorite croutons but it’s been a while since I bought them because they haven’t been on sale. This is one item I’m kind of a brand snob on. I tried the Aldi brand croutons but we just didn’t like them at all. And when these are on sale they are only $0.25 more expensive so I figure it’s worth that to us. My hubby is a big hot tea drinker so whenever I can get tea at a decent price I try to stock up. The ice cream wasn’t the best price ever—I used to be able to get it for $1.00/box after coupons and sales—but I haven’t seen it for less than this in months. And since we were planning to take a meal to our senior pastor and I wanted ice cream I decided to just go ahead and get it. The sugar was just a great price, cheaper than Aldi usually sells it. And the yogurt? Well, it was free after coupons/sales.

Dollar Tree: $3.65
I don’t very often go to Dollar Tree but I didn’t have the children with me and since I needed to get some candle lighters and they have really good candle lighters for just $1, I decided to stop. You definitely can’t beat that price! While I was there I picked up a birthday card and also lasagna. I had no idea that they carried Oven Ready Lasagna for $1. That is the kind that I prefer using (saves cooking it!) but it always costs a bit more. Walmart doesn’t always carry it and when they do it is priced around $1.78. I prefer whole grain pasta but it is hard to find whole grain lasagna noodles.
By the way, did you know you can now use coupons at Dollar Tree?
- 2 Lighters $1.00 each
- Oven Ready Lasagna $1.00
- Greeting Card $0.50
Cash back for grocery money…some of which I used to buy fresh ground whole wheat flour from my mother-in-law.
For some soup that I returned that didn’t ring up on sale as I had thought it would.
