is what I paid for 100 organic ceylon tea bags today.
I had to double check. I have no idea of the price of them before, but I know it was nowehere NEAR that little. There is another brand next to it that has a box of 25 for $3.99. So I know I had atleast some sort of saving.

Anyway. I didn't INTEND to buy teabags today but it was too good of a special to pass up.

I am still noticing a lot more 'buy X amount for X' specials. Normally supermarkets here DONT do that at all. It is odd. But all the better for me, I quite like buying in bulk.

I found a great price on cheese at Aldi, $7.29 for 1kg. But it's a bit of a bummer because I hardly ever go there. Once we move I will be even FURTHER away from Aldi than I am now, and it's about a 30 minute drive now. And to be honest I didn't find anything much else there that I couldn't find the same price in other supermarkets. Eh. Oh well...

    I don't know if groceries are going down here, or if I am just more conscience of what I am spending. I have spent very little on groceries lately and felt like I got my moneys worth, which hasn't happened in a while! Bought 4 boxes of Kraft mac and cheese for .80 each! They are ordinarily over a dollar.

    Hey, I think that was you who asked about freezing cheese over in the forums where I was too lazy to log in this morning. Yes, you can freeze cheese and later use it for cooking. Some cheeses become really crumbly, but often that makes it easier to use in cooking if you can just sprinkle it over your dish.

    My husband has family in Oz, and they are amused --well, maybe closer to shocked-- to see what huge sizes of food and household products we can buy in USA. And I usually do buy the biggest size possible if it is a money savings and is something that stores well. For example-- I buy my jasmine tea in two pound bags, loose leaf! I just have to store it in an airtight bag. Sometimes storage space is a problem as my house is small and my kitchen has no cabinets.
