ALDI-Only Challenge Week 9: $90.92

I cut it pretty close this week because I made a fatal mistake in grocery shopping. I brought the WHOLE family! I can shop pretty well with just my two boys since I have deal with my five-year-old that he gets $1 to spend when we go to the store. He knows if he asks for other things that are not on my list, then the answer will be no. He does a great job of not asking for treats and junk food beyond what his one dollar will buy. His dad is a different story. We were all out and about this Saturday morning and I figured we would just knock out shopping and go together as a whole family. My shopping list below is evidence of what happens when my husband tags along. Bold print items were not on my list:) I guess I can be relieved that we went to ALDI and not a store that would have cost more for all those little extras.
