You know I am a saver and that is why I will shop weekly at Aldi`s grocery store in downtown Oxford, Alabama.
I adore the produce prices and the sale each week, since I am trying my best to stay vegetarian, and one day become vegan, this is an idea shopping store for me. I buy the sale`s each week, unless I am packed with fresh stuff but thats not likely.
This week I will mention the Ham sale because so many people buy and serve ham for their Christmas dinner.
Ham Prices range from . 56 per pound for a shank to $2.99 per pound for a sugar cured boneless ham.
Brand – Appleton farms
Smoked Shank – .56 per pound
Smoked Butt -.74 per pound
Spiral half ham – $1.19 per pound
Spiral cut double glazed ham – $1.59
PLUS! there is a coupon in the weekly sales ad $3.00 off any $25 purchase with a ham.
Now to the weekly produce.
.99 sweet potatoes – three pound bags
.89 celery per stalk
$1.99 russet potatoes per ten pound bag
.99 yellow onions per three pound bag
$2.99 mandarin oranges per three pound bag
.99 each pineapple
And .89 per can of cranberry sauce- whole berry or jellied
I am thinking with those cheap prices that a person could easily make a Christmas dinner extremely cheap. I am guesstimating that I could make a Christmas dinner for around $30 from this weeks sales, sure I would have to add a few spices but most of that is already staples that you have in your cabinets.
A ten pound shank ham $10, mashed potatoes and then some $1.99, Sweet potato pie or casserole.99, got your celery and onions for the stuffing for $1.88, toss in a can of cranberries for .89. This is the place to buy for your holiday meal!
NOTE: I do not get paid to promote Aldi`s, I just think they are awesome.
