Aldi Five Things You Need to Know



Well, I think I need to add 5 things to my original list of 10 things you need to know about Aldi.  I went shop
ping there and here are the things I wished someone told me.


Aldi Tips

1) You will see that they have a great line of organic products.

2) You need a quarter or you are not getting a cart They lock them up and only a quarter will release them.

3) You get your quarter back when you return your cart That is why the lady didn’t give me her cart instead she scurried past me and locked it up to retrieve her quarter.

4) They do not bag your groceries They put them back in your cart with out bags. You should not bring all your groceries out to your car without having them in bags. That is what the huge counter is for behind the cashier. If you chose to do this like I did. Then you will be the subject of everyone staring at you wondering why you didn’t see the huge counter that is supposed to be used for this task.

5) When you leave the store they have the preview for next week If I lived near the Aldi store then I would go get that flyer so I know what not to buy this week and what to wait to buy during the following week. (I live 45 minutes away but I found that I saved enough to do 3 weeks of grocery shopping for $250.00)

Take a stand against Severe Acute Malnutrition with PB+J Foods!

Take a stand against Severe Acute Malnutrition with PB+J Foods!



Did you know that Severe Acute Malnutrition (SAM) is the number one killer of children under five years of age? Nearly 20 million children around the world suffer from SAM. In fact, SAM kills 3.5 million children each year. To put that in perspective, that’s more than HIV, AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria combined. As a mother (and a person) that is an unacceptable fact. So what can we do to help?Continue reading

Karla’s Korner: Learning to Love and not Hate


Learning to Love and not Hate……

On Thursday morning I saw this posted on Planting Peace’s Facebook page and immediately shared it on my own. Throughout the day I thought of the words on this picture and just how true they are. In the past several months there have been numerous tragic events involving school and workplace shootings, kidnappings, killings, suicides as a result of bullying and much more. Each time I hear of these situations my heart aches for the families of all involved. As difficult as it is to have a loved one taken away as a result of hate crimes I wonder how the parents of the perpetrator feel. What parent wants to know that their child has committed a horrific crime all in the name of hate? This past week the mother of a seven year old little boy made him a Klu Klux Klan costume for him to wear for Halloween. Naturally this made the local news and a firestorm has rippled through their community and throughout my state. This mother defends her right to do whatever she wants and has openly shared her support of the KKK and what she believes is normal behavior. Of course she has a right to dress her son in whatever she wants for Halloween, however, she is doing nothing more than teaching her little boy how to hate.Continue reading
