    None of my stores in my area are listed so either I will do the ibotta deal or buy one to bring home when we go to visit my brother in Tennessee at his Aldi. They are building an Aldi in Little Rock but it won’t be open until next year. I also need to stock up on German items at Aldi while I am there. My grand kids love the German calendars and now that my mother died in September they won’t be getting anymore from Germany. LOL.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      SO sorry for your loss. ❤️ Hoping you score a great deal on a Turkey this year. 🤗
