Aldi runs ads every week and it will be tucked into your Sunday or Wednesday paper. They always have next week's at the door as you check out, to tempt you to come back!
The first thing you need when entering an Aldi is a quarter. This is my "Aldi Quarter" that I keep in the ash tray of my Santa Fe!
Insert it into the slot and ta-da, the cart is now yours to use for your shopping. This encourages you to take it back to the buggy rack and keeps costs down.
One of the things you will notice first off is how fresh the produce is...
The prices will shock you, sometimes half what other stores advertise.
They proudly post information about their dairies being free of growth hormones.
Butter, cream, yogurt and cheese...even gourmet cheeses!
Basic cleaning supplies that work every bit as good as name brand and cost so much less.
You'll be saving money around every corner! Now comes the catch, you knew there would be a catch didn't you? When you get to the checkout, you'll see a sign...
Please don't be afraid, you can do it! It doesn't have to be in any order, just pile it on. Well...don't pile cans of tomato juice on top of the eggs or you'll be sorry. But put it up on the belt in an orderly fashion. By now you will notice the bags under the counter provided for you for a paltry sum. Remember, this is all about cost cutting!
By now you can see the checker. He will be busy scanning and placing your groceries back in another cart that you will take over to a bagging area. I just take the cart out to my car, and leisurely sack my stash.
I forgot to tell you about their Belguim chocolate. They carry a premium line of milk, dark and 70% cocoa bars that are out of this world! Godiva good. Eat in the car good. Skip dinner good.
So, if you have an Aldi in your neck of the woods plan a trip as soon as possible. Don't forget your "Aldi Quarter!"
