Aldi's ... ALDI'S!Everyone sing praises!
The one straight down the road from me, corner of Oakland Park and 441 is opening on Thursday the 11th. Psyched Baby! Boy am I ever. About 7 miles. Google Map says 15 minutes but I know it takes 15 minutes (about) to get to I95 from here and that's only the half way point. So figure 20 to 25 minutes.
More than anything, I can't wait to see the prices ... whenever we go to Indiana, Illinois or Kentucky, we try to take a bag with nothing or little in it with us to fill on our way back. The last time in Kentucky we were over the 50 pound limit so I ended up stuffing summer sausage rolls in my purse. Pretty funny going through the security checkpoint.
Anyways. There is a Walmart across the MAIN intersection (when I say MAIN, I mean MAIN, like 5 or 6 lanes in all 4 directions) and the last time I shopped at the store there, I wasn't all that impressed with product selection, quality or pricing.
AND now, I can buy the produce and such from there! For obvious reasons, I couldn't before!
So hopefully this will stick within the SRS month I have imposed (holy cow, I'm going on day 3 and already talking about shopping!) ... but seriously, how can I NOT get excited!!
Thursday. November 11th. Veterans Day. The kids are out of school. Banks are closed (I think?). Courts will either be closed or on limited schedules. I wonder IF I can get that day off? Maybe a half day?? :)
Now I feel the urge to skip working out this morning and go browse other blogs for seasoned Aldi tips!
