One of my favorite things to do is find a bargain. It may be a genetic trait handed down, or maybe I just love the satisfaction it gives me to get something for less. Either way, I love being able to save money on just about anything.
And grocery shopping is NO exception. This is why I do most of my shopping at Aldi. I wasn’t always and Aldi shopper, but over the past few years I have come to love it. I turned my nose up at first and didn’t like how small the store was. But one summer while some roads to our main grocery store were closed for road work, I decided to give it another shop.
I’m so glad I did because I honestly have a hard time shopping anywhere else now. I truly love the size of Aldi now because it takes me a lot less time to shop. And I don’t think I could ever go back to a grocery store bill that’s 40% more expensive.
There are still things that I have to grab from a Super Target or grocery store that Aldi just doesn’t carry, but for the most part, everything we buy is from Aldi.
One of the things I love about Aldi is that eating healthy and organic food doesn’t have to be an expensive habit.

What are your best tips for keeping your grocery bill down without sacrificing the quality of your food?
When I first began doing fitness at home with videos, it was a costly habit. The internet wasn’t the valuable resource it is now when it comes to the number of free and inexpensive programs. Because of this, I would order videos from infomercials (hello, The Firm!), borrow them from a friend or get them at the library. And then I would do those videos over and over and over again with almost no variety.
Maybe I’m revealing too much about my age, but I’m SO glad those days are gone! In the past few years I’ve tried a few other workout videos and programs at home and had some really positive results with them.
I’ve always enjoyed working out at home, just because it takes the complexity out of trying to squeeze in some exercise. There’s no driving to the gym, loading up a bag, planning my outfit, etc. And I don’t need to worry about how crowded it will be. Nowadays, it’s a bonus because I can get up early and workout before my kids wake up, or I can even workout for a half hour while they play nearby.
Working out at home is definitely one of the things that has helped me stay active and healthy for the majority of my adult life.
Plus, there are amazing resources available online that you can access for free. And the sheer variety of videos and programs means you won’t get bored, and you’re less likely to hit a plateau from doing the same repetitive workouts over and over.
These are my top picks for free workout videos online:
Yoga with Adriene
Tone it Up
Jessica Smith TV
Get Healthy U
Shauna Kathleen YouTube Channel
