February #LowCarb Groceries #2

We were in Saginaw yesterday, didn't have a whole lot of time but managed a quick trip through Aldi's while we were there. I'm so excited to have rediscovered this gem! I used to shop there all the time when I lived in Lansing (they have TWO of them!) and have really missed it.

Anyway, here is what I bought:
(1) 16 oz. Mexican Shredded Cheese $2.99
(2) 16 oz. Shredded Mozzarella @ $3.49 ea.
(2) dark chocolate bars, 1 @ 99¢, 1 @ $1.49
(1) bag of chips (Hubby got for himself) $1.99
(1) 100 ct. saccharin sweetener packets $1.19 (I usually buy the bulk box which is MUCH cheaper, but we were out of it; it's best not to go to another store, where I buy more stuff than I need! I spend much less by paying a little more at a store I'm already at.)
(1) 33.9 oz can of coffee $5.49
(1) 11.3 oz can decaf coffee $2.79
(1) pint jar salsa $1.79
(1) box instant rice $1.35 (will use in potluck meals for church; ½c goes a long way in a casserole!)
(2) cans diced tomatoes 59¢ ea
(1) can parmesan cheese $2.39
(1) 16 oz pkg American cheese slices 99¢
(1) 16 oz pkg Swiss cheese slices $1.99
(1) bottle salad dressing $1.29
(4) quarts half'n'half @ $1.79 ea

TOTAL @ Aldi's was $42.05; total for the month so far $62.38. And I have to go pick up a few things today for meals through this next week: eggplant and ground sausage for lasagna (and I can use up that vile lowfat cottage cheese I picked up by mistake!), turnips, onions, cauliflower, brussels sprouts (hubby's favorite veggie), popcorn, broth, fish, SOS soap pads (I like these SO much better than Brillo!), dog food...and if there's any "red sticker" meat for a good price I might bring home some of that as well. I will be up near $100 within the first 10 days of the month but shouldn't need to spend more than another $100 before March - unless I have an opportunity to stock up on something for a great price :).
