Aldi-Only Challenge Week 2: $56.47 (with Road Trip Food!)

This is my second week of grocery shopping exclusively at ALDI and I was expecting to spend a lot more than I did. I was shocked to come out so far under budget. We took a Labor Day Weekend Trip to Tulsa and I packed lunches, snacks, and drinks for all three days of the trip. We ate hotel breakfast and had dinner out both nights. This also included what I needed for the week for meals at home.
