Due to recent job situation, I am trying to find more ways to save. I normally would shop at Acme or Wegmans out of convenience and quality of food.
I did go shopping the other day at Bottom Dollar Foods and was disappointed…Their meats were expensive and had a lot of fat in them. Acme is same price with less fat.
I just simply noticed that some of their boxed foods like mac n cheese, hamburger helper were decent price, and they had canned goods there, but I am questioning the quality of them? I mean, 50 cents for a can of tuna???
I noticed with them, the more unhealthy the food – the cheaper it was… Guess that’s answers the question of how can people with little money can be overweight.
I know this team is Aldi and Save a Lot. I have both Aldi and Save a Lot (closer to me than Bottom Dollar too)….so I wanted to post to see what all your opinions are regarding their products. How did you find the quality of their own name brand items like canned veggies, etc…?
A big thing for me is quality of produce and meats…Canned veggies are a staple of mine as well. The other stuff, like boxed items such as hamburger helper, instant potatos, aren’t a real issue for me. They seem to be affordable anywhere and I don’t really use them often.
So please give me your opinions – who’s better Aldi, or Save-A-Lot? Who has the better quality meats and produce?
Thank you for all your input.
