Can’t believe the last day of June is here already! I’m joining up with Leigh Kramer to share what I’ve been into this June.
Shopping at Aldi
We have a local Aldi, but I had always avoided it because how different it was compared to other grocery stores. The biggest deterrent for me was not being able to use a credit card (as we earn travel points on our cards).
So when I heard that Aldi now accepts credit and debit cards, it was time to check it out again. The oddities about Aldi (25 cent deposit for carts and bringing your own grocery sacks) don’t seem as odd after grocery shopping in Brussels and Berlin, where it is the norm.
Because of those oddities, Aldi can pass on savings to the customer and some staples are ridiculously cheap!
Aldi now carries many organic staples such as organic grass fed beef, produce, and baking items. My current favorites right now are the mango chipotle cassava chips, churros and 100 calorie guacamole snack packs!
Besides my favorite podcasts:
I’ve also discovered this amazing app when I don’t want to listen to random conversations poolside whilst reading the latest beach read.
Just like Prince, this free app is in a legal fight over the name Hear and so it’s officially the app formally known as Hear. You can find it here and even enter a contest to rename it!
Basically this app works when you plug in your headphones and distorts the outside noise into pleasant ambient sounds. I love to use this app when I read because it masks the chatter but allows me to focus on reading!
I’ve almost worked through my June reading
Besides the above books, I’m also rereading:
We’ve had some scorcher summer days already this month. Usually I walk in the evenings with my husband, but the humidity has been killer. So, I’ve taken to walking in the early morning before the mugginess descends.
What have you been into this June? I’d love to hear!
