I don't recall seeing them at Aldi's but I have a collection of reusable grocery bags that I take for myself and my Aunt when we go. I'm always on the look out for them at our local thrift store and buy them there when I find them.

I do that, it's so nice! We even use them as laundry bags from our laundry room to the bedroom. How it makes life easier, no need for laundry baskets. Though, we could use a hamper or two for the dirty clothes. :P
next time when you go on a trip use them as a laundry bag. I did that when my dad and I went to Minnesota in July. It was easier to carry them into the laundry room at my oldest brother's house that way and carry the clothes out and put them into the suitcases.
I have to say the ones at Save-A-Lot are great too, and only a dollar. I can put a lot in them and they don't easily fall apart. My wife even uses them for work. I wish more companies would invest in reusable solutions like this that are cost effective.
I have no shame, I take my Save-A-Lot bags to Sam's Club. :P
We finally got one the last time we went to Aldi's and we LOVE it. I used it at Target the other day because it carries a lot. It did when we used it at Aldi's the day we got it. It carried everything except for the gallon of milk. It's a bit bigger than the one that I got at JoAnn Fabrics and it's about a dollar more too than the one from JoAnn Fabrics.
I think my Aldi has two sizes of natural reusable bags as well as the freezer bag. We love our reusables - we use trader joe's reusable bags for frozen because they are a different type of material that wipes out without having to wash the whole bag -- don't want mildewed reusables!
I just got a reusable bag from JoAnn Frabric Friday and using it for a knitting bag and maybe use it at Aldi's and Save A Lot. I saw someone at Target I think it was Friday or Saturday using a reusable bag from Aldi's.
I made my own awhile back with re- enforced bottoms and pocket to slide certain items in. And i made a special one just for my frozen goods with plastic liners and recycled cooler insulation that I tore off of one of my sons old fabric coolers. I did this after my sil took her re useable's to Wal mart and some lady argued that she stole them. So all of mine have my own fabric and designs. I added snaps on a few and am thinking of making one with a flap closure!

We put about 15 pounds worth of canned goods in ours last weekend and it worked just fine -- Aldi's reusable bag is much sturdier than the ones we bought at Meijer last year, plus it's about twice the size.
We have had no problem carrying cans in the bags. Just don't put too many in. Besides we also use reuseable bags from other stores. You can get them at Meijer, Wal-Mart, Target, and a few other stores. These work out really good.

Our store finally got the reusable bags, and I bought one. It's very big, but seems flimsier than I was expecting. It would be great for carrying a lot of cereal boxes or light things, but if I filled it with cans or produce I suspect it might break.
I have two "sets" of reusable bags and rotate them so I always have a set in the car. Once I unload the bags, I set them next to the door near my purse and put them back in the car the next time I leave. It works great and I love that I can FILL my bags w/o worrying about them breaking on me!
Today we went to Aldi's and found a reusable bag for Aldi's. It cost $1.99. It is bigger then the ones you get from Meijer's, Walmart, Target or Spartan stores. My husband and I always use the reusable bags. Saves money you don't have to keep buying paper or plastic bags. When we are done with them we put them back in the car so we don't forget them.
