    here in fla, our local aldis carries it year round.

    some stuff with aldis is very seasonal.

    they only carry cranberry sauce 11 weeks a year.
    i asked the manager today what is with the cranberry sauce, how come you have it this week? i bought 15 cans. he told me that some items are seasonal or limited or 1 time only.
    must have to do with space or lack thereof.

    the aldi brand of sunscreen we like is aerosol Little Ombre, spf 50.
    i know only use 50 on my ears, shoulders and forehead . the rest of me gets 15 or nothing at all.

    We have only purchased silly things at our Aldi's, things we definitely don't need...never looked in that section cause our store is really tiny. 50 if HIGH for me also who is olive(ish) in color but it doesn't hurt to have some around, especially for 1.99! (Can keep at our house for our Little Ombre's!) Thx

    P.S. Bought their Baby Back Ribs about 2 weeks ago and OMG...they were the meatyist we've ever had and only 3.69 per lb. We usually buy them at CostCo or when on sale at our local market but no more...I will wait for Aldi's to carry them from now on!!!

    Did you know that if you have a flex spending medical account offered through most employers that you can purchase sun tan lotion with a SPF of 15 and higher tax free?

    The purchase is before Payroll taxes. Since we are beach people, the savings adds up.

    Sunblock of 30 SPF or higher is an eligible FSA expense ONLY with a doctor's prescription.

    We must have conflicting information. My wife called the provider and they said spf of 15 and NO script is needed. We made the purchases, sent in receipts, then we received a request from them to submit a picture of the products we purchased. I will google and post support, gotta run to a meeting

    Here is the support:

    Link: http://www.connectyourcare.com/cyc2/...s_can_use.html

    "To be considered FSA, HSA and HRA eligible, sunscreen products must be broad spectrum and have an spf level of at least 15. See FSAStore's list of eligible sunscreen products."

    If you click the "list of elegible products" you will be taken to:
    http://fsastore.com/Sun-Care-C253.aspx A few product screens in you will see that SPF 15 is an approved product.

    Heres my sun screen tip of the day. You know how cold it is when you put it on first thing in the morning? I sure do and hate it so I put it in the sink and soak it in hot water shaking it up time to time while Im having my coffee. No more cold, a nice comfy warm lotion.
