A new store in town...


So today was my first visit to the new grocery store ALDI. It was fabulous!
Such great deals on is the breakdown of my savings...

10 lb bag of potatoes for $1.29
4 lb bag of oranges for $2.29
1 lb of salmon for $3.29
3 zucchini for $1.49
1 lb Strawberries for $1.49
8 Roma tomatoes for $1.49
1 Pineapple for $.99 each
Avacadoes for $.39 each (I bought 3)
1 Gallon Milk $1.79

So it was definitely worth my trip, because we eat so much fresh produce and it usually takes up a big chunk of my grocery bill...I didn't really shop an any other areas of the store, so maybe that will be another blog post...I do want to warn you that if you decide to go, either bring your own grocery bags or be prepared to purchase your bags there for $.06 a piece, and the grocery carts are $.25 to use, but you get your quarter back if you walk it back to the front of the store...

Another tip, is that is you don't want to go several grocery stores to get good deals- you can always take the sales flyer from ALDI (or any store, that is) and use it to price match items at Walmart.

Happy Shopping!

  1. We have Aldi's here. I have been once. Their produce seems to go bad faster than other stores. And I have been told of a few things not to get there. I was told never to buy their cheese, spaghetti sauce, fresh chicken and ground beef. The stores are different here though cause they have been here a long time and are just kind of depressing inside. If they were new they would be nicer of course!
