Cold and Rainy

March 25th, 2017 at 07:54 pm

I had some simple goals today--the library, return and mail some packages, and go grocery shopping. Despite the cold rain, the library worked out well--and we've finally received the 5th season of Homeland. I went to the UPS store to return a pair of DD's shoes to Zappo's, but the USPS had closed before I got there with my sample glasses frames. That'll have to wait until Monday. The third return was the air compressor/inflator I ordered from Target.com which never worked. It was also my attempt to use up my various gift cards, so I got yet another gift card as credit and did more grocery shopping at Target than usual to spend it rather than "real" money."

Target grocery prices are hard for me to figure out. They're significantly more expensive on some things, but the Tazo tea, cocoa mix, and a few other things were almost 1/3 less than my usual grocery store. I still have over $35 left on that card, and a lot of credit at Target.com. Maybe when we get the bathroom remodeled, I'll buy lots of lovely new towels. We could probably use another set of sheets as well. I spent $48 at the regular grocery store, and we seem to have SO much food now. DD has spring break and I wanted to buy a few nice things. We'll also use some BOGO lunch coupons. Not Mexico or Florida like some of her friends, but a few fun outings after work.

The dog is still resting. So far, so good.

    My DIL insists that Target is cheaper, and I insist that it's more expensive, when it comes to grocery shopping. It may be that we are focusing on different things.

    I'm glad I'm not the only one in a quandary. If I had the time or energy, I'd start a price book, but most of that stuff just floats around in my head.

    We have found that the two other grocery stores besides Aldi in our town, neither of them is cheaper on everything. One is cheaper on certain items and vice versa. Some weeks it means three different stores. One of them is going to put out a penny pincher coupon book and they sent a preview...it has some good stuff in it so I'm pretty pumped about it.

    Grocery prices have slowly increased here, just over the last few weeks. I'm going to aldi at the end of the week, but I'm not sure exactly how much difference in prices there will be.
