On my Facebook page yesterday I announced that I had made a trip to Aldi grocery store and was super excited for the deals that I found. I have been to Aldi before but it has been a really long time. I kept reading comments and suggestions about shopping there. Since everyone was raving so much about it I decided I better check it out again.
I got all that you see above for $15.75. I was amazed at the prices they had on their produce. So cheap compared to what I pay at my local Fareway and Hy-vee. Here is the breakdown.
2 gallons whole milk $3.25. I usually pay close to $4.
1 gallon 1% milk $2.83.
Mushrooms $.79 I think it's a great deal when I find them for $1 at the grocery store.
3 lbs tangerines $1.99. Not great but they looked really good and my son wanted them.
Cucumbers $.39 each
Green peppers 3 pk $.99
Bananas $.38 lb
Hamburger buns $.99
I felt good about what I bought. All the produce I got (with the exception of the peppers) are not on the "dirty dozen" list so I am ok with buying them non-organic. Looks like I have a new place to do my shopping until I can grow my own or buy from the Farmers market.
Thank you to all my readers who suggested I shop there. Because of you, I am saving more money!
