A Successful Shopping Trip to Aldi
Before today, it had been over a year since I last shopped at Aldi. I love the store, but due to time constraints I have recently been visiting Pick ‘n Save for the majority of my grocery shopping. Pick ‘n Save is close to my house, and I can get everything in one trip. Plus, I like visiting Pick ‘n Save on Double Daze. I have always viewed Aldi as a nice place to supplement my more frequent shopping trips to Pick ‘n Save and Sendik’s.
I found myself driving by an Aldi store today and decided to stop in because I wanted to stock up on macaroni and cheese. Their macaroni and cheese tastes pretty good and I figured it would probably cost a little less than the brand we usually buy (Kraft). Sure enough, the Aldi brand was only $0.45 a box! I grabbed an empty box from the shelf (to avoid paying for a grocery bag) and loaded it up with seven boxes of macaroni and cheese. In retrospect, I should have bought more!
I also found a bunch of other great deals. Black beans and kidney beans were only $0.55 a can. I bought four of each because they’ll be great to have on hand for salsa and chili. I also bought a very large can of pinto beans for $0.99.
Just yesterday I paid over $3 for a bottle of ranch dressing at Pick ‘n Save. Today I paid $1.39 at Aldi. I will be interested to see what my family thinks of the quality of the Aldi dressing.
Last but not least, I paid $1.62 for a gallon of skim milk! I can’t recall the last time I found milk that cheap.
With the great deals I found today I am definitely heading back to Aldi again soon. It’s been so long since I have shopped there regularly so I need your help. What items do you recommend I buy at Aldi on my next trip? What items should I avoid?
