A Hop Skip and A Jump Away
We met not so bright and early at 9:30am in Anderson center where we loaded the Hamline van in pursuit of Milwaukee, WI with our fearless drivers Merry and Nur. On our drive, we saw a turkey while others took a snooze.
After five hours in the car, we finally arrived at our lovely destination, the Marquette apartments. We quickly unpacked and headed out to Aldi to get our grocery shopping done. While at Aldi, the group really bonded over packing all of our food into boxes (see video below).
Once we got back from Aldi and put everything away, we got some grub then had a great reflection. We reflected on how stressful being on a tight food budget can be, and trying to figure out what should be the first thing to go if we were to go over budget. We also learned the importance of getting fresh, nutritious food, and not just frozen or processed food. After reflecting on our shopping experience, we made affirmation bags which will be a great keep sake for each of us to remember our experience.
