  • Yep =] We shop there every two weeks, when my boyfriend gets paid. It saves us at least $50 every shopping trip.

  • Oh yeah! I love Aldi! Everything there is so cheap. You can leave with a buggy full of groceries for under 50 bucks. All of there brands of food are good too.

  • I usually go once a month or so to pick up some things when they have a sale. For example, this week a 5 lb bag of potatoes was 99 cents. Also they had a 3 pack of green peppers for 99 cents. I don't normally buy fresh meat there, but I will buy other things there.

  • there is but I don't go a lot, because I don't like some of their food and they don't have a lot. The brands that they have are exclusive to Aldi's. They have the best "cheeze it" type crackers. Their produce is pretty good too.

  • We have several Aldi's around us. I don't often shop there though. Just about ten minutes down the road is a Amish town that has a Save A Lot. I love that store. The prices are about the same as Aldi, but they carry name brands too. And there fresh meat and produce is fresh and cheap. Other than that I go to walmart and just buy their brand. Costs just slightly more. Luckily Save A Lot is closer.

  • The "cheap brands i never heard of" are usually the same product from the "name brand" companies. The only reason they have a different name is so the company can give the same product to you for a much better price.
