Every year we visit an area apple orchard.
This year we skipped the extras (cider slushies, candy corn and suckers from the market, would have been an additional $15. at LEAST) and just picked 1 small bag of apples. $10
Then we stopped at Aldi for a pre-made pie crust $1.89 (Should have made my own from scratch, but I had worked that morning as was POOPED!)
and Vanilla Ice Cream $2.69
and we headed home to bake our pie.
We have TONS of apples left to make apple crisp and another pie (with the crust from scratch this time.)
Love our visits each year and love the treats we enjoy as the fruit of our labor (ha. pun intended)
Frugal, family fun.
