My Weekly Shopping Trips for the First Week of December!

As we enter December, I eliminated Costco from my rotation of stores for now. The membership was due and I'd rather use that money for Christmas gifts this month. Also, I am shopping every 2 weeks at Whole Foods Market and Trader Joe's. Do you save money by shopping at 2 stores, check the totals below? Since I am not going out of my way to shop at both Aldi and ShopRite, I don't facture the cost of gas or the time spent traveling into the equation.


Whole Foods Market: $20.89

We were out at the Home Depot Kid's Workshop, I went to the store on Saturday on the way home.
