New Year’s Resolutions: 2019

Happy New Year!!

With a new year there comes new goals and resolutions to make 2019 the best year yet. No matter whether you call them goals, aspirations, or resolutions it doesn’t matter. They allow you to work toward something and (hopefully) feel a sense of achievement this time next year.

I decided to share my resolutions with all of you this year so I have some accountability. I have some big ones to check off the list and I want to make sure I am able to get them done. As I  work my way through the resolutions I will make sure to report back – good or bad I will let you know how they go!

Come Shop with Me: Aldi

I have a new love…and her name is Aldi 🙂 I don’t know why it took me so long to realize this grocery store’s greatness, but I am now on the bandwagon and loving it!

Aldi is a great grocery store for anyone trying to eat healthier or just to save some money. Here’s why:

  • Great produce
  • Great meat
  • Many organic options
  • Reasonably priced
  • Not too many temptations because the selection is limited

I was able to reduce my weekly grocery bill from about $65 to around $40 – that’s about $100 a month that I save just by shopping at Aldi!
