My shopping trip today. I spent $23.92 (a little more than normal, but as you can see I snagged a treat for hubby and Grace)
I do think you need to be careful when shopping at Aldi. Although many of there prices are low. If you are a couponer like me and watch the weekly deals at your local grocery store it is sometimes a better deal to shop at you local grocery store verses Aldi. Just be sure to watch the ads and ALWAYS be sure to check the expiration dates. (I think this is important no matter where you shop).
What I got for $20.93
10lbs russet potatoes - $3.29 (has been cheaper before but I really needed potatoes)
M&M Ice Cream Cones - $3.69 (Not a normal buy special treat)
Red Grapes - $1.59
Large Pitted Olives - $0.99 (love my olives!)
Spanish Olives - $1.09
Banana $1.10 ($0.44/1b)
Strawberries - $0.99 (in blue container already sliced)
Plain Bagels - $1.49 (we love these)
Cinnamon Bagels - $1.49 (another favorite)
Roma Tomatoes - $1.49
Cinnamon Grahams - $1.49
Graham Crackers - $1.49
Lemons $0.50 ($0.25 each)
Cantaloupe - $0.99
Corn Chips - $0.99
A few tips when shopping at Aldi:
- Be sure to always have a quarter handy.
- Bring your own bags. If you do not you will have to either buy bags or try and find boxes to use.
- Aldi does not except credit cards( man I wish they did). Mae sure you have cash or your debit card ready.
