I remember going into Aldi's and getting a shopping cart full of groceries when my son was small. Now he's 22 and he's amazed at how much we can buy at Aldi's for $60 or so. He said that we needed to go more often. I thought that's right and you're learning.
I wouldn't have the energy to do what you've done! Our Aldi's is always super busy. Sometimes my son and I can get in and out in 20 minutes but most of the time when I go it's more like 45 minutes because the check out line is so long. Most of the time they only have one check out. If they have two it's still super busy. I'll take the long lines to save the money. I bring my reusable grocery bags so it's a breeze.

Start with small steps and momentum will build. Celebrate moving in the direction of increased happiness now! With a plan and persistence moving towards your goals all things are possible! ♥ From Ask-Angels.com
Much Love & Hugs, Ramona

I raised 6 kids, 'organized' is my middle name.
Once a month we would go to ALDI
Each big kid and I had a cart; and a list....
each of the kids had a little kid 'helper'

We were in and out in 30 minutes with $250 worth of groceries. (No one else wanted to be in line behind us!)
emoticon I don't have the energy to do that any more!!

flour, sugar, (all baking products) oatmeal, cereal, canned vegetables, eggs, milk, oils, cheese, butter (especially better priced there than anywhere I've found). We buy almost everything at Aldi, except what isn't available.

I do have a problem with the produce at both Aldi stores close to us. I bought Strawberries once, without looking them over and got home and found them molded when I lifted the first one out of the package. I've also bought onions there and although they were firm on the outside, were rotten on the inside. This has happened more than once. I'm starting to get a little leary of buying produce there because even the bananas I buy from there seem to go bad quickly. Are any of you having problems with their produce?

Mary, that was a great deal on the blueberries!

If you give up today, think of how much you'll regret it three months from now when you could be 15-20 pounds lighter.

I can't imaging not shopping at Aldi's. The Save-A-Lot by us is really bad, the dates are on or too close to experation, but the Aldi. I love the fact I can take my list, be in and out in less than 30 minutes, even on a Saturday and the additions to the cart are minimal. Their frostings, cake mixes, cereals, spices, meats, dairy are all wonderful and even if there is an issue they are really good about exchanges or refunds, even without the receipt. Plus I love being Green, in that I use my re-usable bags, and occasionally I use some of there boxes, which I then end up using for something else.

Have a little faith, take a single step and DREAM even if it breaks your heart!

fresh pineapple - they have the best pineapples. I always get one. I plant the tops too. I love their fresh veggies and fruits. I like the fit & active yogurts too. Fresh garlic. We (my aunt, son) love their cinnamon raisin swirl bread. Toasted for breakfast with fresh fruit - yum.
