Preparing for our next trip...thoughts are swirling rapidly through my brain of all I need to accomplish before we leave! However, I also have travel thoughts...
I have my hopes up to get a stop in at one of my favorite stores! A.L.D.I
Yes, I love that store! I miss the great prices on some of my favorite
things. Black olives being one, weird, I know, but they are really good
black olives. I also like a lot of their "cold" items which sadly I will not
be able to bring back much from that department. They have the best whipped cream in a can!
Seriously, it's good! I also think their cream cheese is just as good as
the Liberty Bell kind, sour cream is totally yum, too! Their guac
In addition I love their produce, they have
exceptionally good prices here. And it's great produce for sure! They
have good bread products, great whole grain type breads! And there are
some cereals of theirs I like.
To be fair they have
things I do not enjoy...it's trial and error. BUT if you don't like
something you return it for a FULL refund. Also if you get say a bad
cantaloupe, you can tell them next time you are there and they will give you another. I have
never done this without returning the actual unacceptable produce item, but I have been told you don't
have to bring the produce back. I just love a store that stands behind
IF you go be sure to have a quarter and
cash. Yes, I did say a quarter and I do mean that round coin that takes
four to make a dollar. You have to pay for your shopping cart. That way
more then likely you will return in to the cart corral to get your
quarter back instead of leave the cart in the parking lot. I personally
LOVE this concept and wish our commissary would adopt this process. It's
a little pet peeve I have when people take a shopping cart to their
vehicle and then just abandon it in the parking lot!
Okay, so I gotta get, have to make a post office, dry cleaning, bx run and get back to meet a friend who is picking up our moving boxes for her move. Love recycling and helping out a friend too! Just wish we had a little more time so we could have dinner. Next time!
