Thanks for all this work! So, did you get ALL the grocery items at Aldi's?

I love the idea of the freezer kits, but I'm a little confused...
How do you assemble the kits? Are there recipes? Maybe I'm just not seeing the big picture...

At any rate, I love your blog and appreciate all your hard efforts on posting this!

I recently found your blog and am so inspired!! We have an Aldi's about 50 minutes away, but I've never made the trip. I'm anxious to see your plan and cost etc, and maybe I'll get up the nerve to try Aldi's. Your recipes and pictures look so terrific. I can't wait to try them! Thanks for all your work and for sharing it with us! --Olivia

I love these ideas, Shawn! We are looking forward to less hectic dinner times!
We also love hearing about your family.
Blessings to you! Your Centerville friends :)

I want you to know that I am EAGERLY awaiting your step-by-step guide to freezer kits!!! I have even got my other non-hs friend looking for it. We are going to do them together. I don't have an Aldi so I am sure mine will turn out costing a little more than yours, but I am sure it WILL be a savings than what I am doing now.

Thank you for sharing your talent with us!

This looks awesome! But I see it's from 2007 :( Did you ever have the chance to create the menus? I'm going back to work after 10 years away, and I'm looking for ways to feed my 4 children happily when I get back home!
