Aldi Two Week Menu Plan

After reading about discount grocery store Aldi on several blogs, I decided to try shopping there this week to see for myself if I could save money. My goal is to get my spending down to $100 a week for my family of six. I spent $169 at Aldi for two weeks worth of groceries. BUT I made make a trip milk and items for my husbands lunches the weekend between the two weeks. And I had a roast and pork chops in the freezer and didn't have to buy them. I ended up spending about $120 a week. Better than the $150 I had been spending, but I think the budget still needs work.

I found a lot of these recipes on momadvice.com.
