Y'all this was one for the books! lol
All I wanted was the orange hatted gnome.
Went to four local Aldis and only one had gnomes and it wasn't Mr. Orange but I grabbed a consolation gnome just in case lol
Then I got a tip that the Latrobe Aldi had some so I hightailed it up there and there was only one left, still not Mr. Orange, but I grabbed him and a hedgehog with a bowtie for good luck.
Was on my way to the Garfield Aldi (no gnomes!) and Paula said she just saw some at McKees Rocks and they had Mr. Orange! I asked her to pretty please grab him (and the cute lil purple wizard one too-why not!?! lol) because there was no way I would get there before he was sold because I was coming from Latrobe! Thankfully, she graciously grabbed those two and PMed me her address, I PMed her backand I was on my way!
I get to the address and went to message her that I was there and noticed that my previous message said: "I don't know where McKees Rocks is but God said I should be there in 20 minutes"
Oh my lort she must think I'm some kinda nut that I think God tells me how far away things are!!!?!?! lol so I responded:"Umm not God *GPS lol what is wrong with autocorrect altho God is kinda like GPS lol"
Mercifully she gave me the benefit of the doubt I wasn't a whackadoo and still met me for the handoff! lol
I present to you:
Harry Potter, Mr. Orange, Gnome Chomsky, Mr. Purple, Beau Tie lol

To recap my day:
  • 122 Miles
  • 7 Aldis
  • 6 hours
  • 4 gnomes
  • 1 hedgehog
  • 1/2 tank of gas
    = totes worth it lol

Thanks again Paula for going above and beyond for your fellow Yinzer!!

And now I'm totes dead and going to bed πŸ˜‚

 So I bought some of those cute fridge organizer trays yesterday.

Today I figured I'd put some things in them and go about my day.  I was gonna have one of those "get $h!t done days" that I always hear people talking about.

But then I looked at my fridge with everything akimbo and no rhyme or reason to it and thought "this must be what the fridge of a psychopath looks like."  So I started organizing a little.

I figured since I'm organizing I might as well clean a little too.

I threw a couple things away that were past their prime.

I wiped down the shelves.

While I'm at it I might as well pull the shelves out for a more thorough clean.

Y'all two hours in I got this thing down to the bare bones! I removed every piece I could figure out how to take out! 

I'm cleaning crevices that I didn't even know existed.

I got parts soaking, parts in the dishwasher.

My kitchen looks like the fridge exploded with its parts everywhere!

  Even Richard Pryor got involved.

I swear I saw God at one point this was such a spiritual experience-I felt this cleaning in my soul!! 

I rethought the entire way I was organizing my refrigerator all my life was all wrong and realized I needed more containers!  Funny, considering yesterday morning I didn't even know I needed any containers, and now I don't have enough!

I went to my closest Aldi (a mile away lol), and they only had the small ones left.  

I drove to my next Aldi (another mile away lol) and they had one of the larger bins left so I snapped that puppy up and treated myself with some Pumpkin Spice Special K-wth you only live once! lol

I had to go into town so I figured I'd stop at their Aldi-and they had three large bins left so I snagged those too. And rewarded myself with some Pumpkin Spice donuts for my trouble lol  

 At this point I thought "you know what!  You need the egg holder too bc that way you can always tell at a glance how many eggs you have because it is clear!" Even though this morning I thought the idea of transferring eggs from the perfectly fine container they come in, to another container was stupid but the Aldi magic had its hooks in me and wasn't letting go until I had that egg holder and of course this store didn't have any!

So back towards home I stopped at my first local Aldi because I remembered they had egg bins from my earlier trip, and I figured now that I had a clean and organized fridge, maybe I should get some respectable groceries for it too.  Also, because do I want to be remembered as the weird lady who stopped in twice in one day just to buy fridge organizers?!?

Thankfully, once I was home the Aldi spell was broken and I came back to my senses that no, in fact I did NOT need a fancy clear bin to put my eggs in even if it was cute, so that bin will be released back into the wild when I visit Aldi again.

Welp, this is it y'all.  This is what took up the better part of my day lol

WEDNESDAYS WITH ALDI: Refrigerator trays! lol


Welp, I really wasn't going to go to Aldi today as nothing really caught my eye in the ad:
  • I don't buy candles because I seem to accidentally cause fires lol
  • I have all the decorative signs a girl could own (and maybe a few too many if I was being truthful-which I am not! πŸ˜‚)
However, I had a couple of jeggings to return since last weeks trip to buy said jeggings turned out in disappointment as I couldn't squeeze myself into them πŸ˜•

I was out and about anyway, so I stopped by to return the jeggings and to check out the stock in the AOS to report back to my local Aldi Yinzer group in case anybody needed to find something that their Aldi was out of.

I saw those refrigerator organizing trays and just had to get myself a few because our frig always seems to be out of control!!  I blame Tracy from the Yinzer group because that was her "must-have" purchase today. πŸ˜‚

To be able to justify that I was "grocery shopping" I even picked up a couple food items too lol
Photo credit: me : )

Feels legit to me πŸ˜‚

I got them in the dishwasher now (even tho it says handwash only-ain't nobody got time for that! and I'm excited to see how "organized" the frig really will be after I use them lol

 I scored some pants-yah! If you would have told me two years ago I was gonna start buying my pants πŸ‘– exclusively from a grocery store I would have laughed  🀣🀣🀣 

I also got some food too, not pictured πŸ˜‚  

I started getting these jeggings during the pandemic and haven't turned back. They are my "going out of the house pants" which frankly I don't do very often, and the Aldi leggings are my "inside the house pants" It's quite a system I got going.  Follow me for for fashion advice lol


Ok after just trying them on, I gotta report that these are NOT the same size of my other Aldi jeggings that I got last year, and despite trying to squeeze myself into them, it wasn't happening. Too much junk in the trunk lol The ones I got last year had a bit more spandex in them so they were a tad more <ahem> accommodating lol 

I'm super sad bc I only have the dark blue and green ones from last year, and they had dummy front pockets whereas these have all 5 real pockets!! 

Unfortunately, these are going back : ( I knew I should have grabbed some maternity jeggings (despite not being pregnant) last week when I had a chance! πŸ˜‚
