Ok moms, we all try to save money and budget. Groceries are expensive and are getting more expensive every time we turn around. There are 2 chain, cost cutting grocery stores out there. Aldi and Save a lot. I want your opinions on these 2 stores:

1. Which store is cheaper overall?
2. Which store has better quality foods?
3. Which one do you shop at?

Im not asking about other stores. I am specifically asking about aldi vs save a lot.

 My DH prefers Aldi's, because of the food and the prices.

I won't shop at Save A Lot. My mom dragged me in there and it seemed dirty and gross.

Aldi is fine. There are some things I will buy there. They recently expanded their organic offerings and they are far cheaper than Wegmans or Trader Joes for those items.

So between the two, I would shop at Aldi.
