I was in the town where our Aldi’s store is located and since I’m watching for them to put their butter on their yearly sale, I popped in. Well, the butter was still $3.19/lb … no, that is not a sale … so I didn’t purchase any.
But, what I did find was this …..
… banana’s on sale for $.22/lb.
I purchased these, brought them home and got to work. I peeled, cut up and froze enough to make 51 smoothies, made 12 banana nut muffins and still have several laying on the counter to ripen a bit more.
The total cost for the banana’s was $2.61 including taxes. Pretty good return on my money don’t you think!
One more thing … I fed the compost bin with all those banana peelings!
What did you add to your pantry for $5 or Less this week?
