Testimonial from Karen
I just want to say thanks. I see you post often about ALDI and I always write it off as a not for us because it is too far away.
Today, I was in the neighboring city and knew I needed to stop for some fruit at the grocery store. Right as I thought of it, we drove by an ALDI. I pulled in the parking lot and we went inside to “check it out”.
The first thing we noticed was the milk, $1.89 a gallon! That was shock! We pay $3.39 a gallon.
Next, I went to the produce. The prices were good but the fruit was picked over. We were able to get cantaloupe for $0.99 each and that was exciting (they are $2.50 at our regular grocery store!)
So for a gallon of milk and 3 cantaloupe I paid $4.86, if I had bought this at my grocery it would have been $10.89!!! What a savings!
Then, we stopped at the nearby Target for 3 specific items: diapers, cheese, and a skillet meal. The diapers were $0.90 cheaper and the cheese was $0.65 cheaper than the Target by our house. The skillet meals were the same price, but this Target store carried more variety than the one by our house.
Also, we noticed gas was $0.11 a gallon cheaper in this town than where we live. I make a trip to this town every two weeks, and I think I’m going to start planning my grocery trips around it.
While I can’t buy two weeks’ worth of milk at once, I can save $1.40 a gallon for every gallon I do buy. I am excited to see what I can “save” by buying here instead of at home and I would not have noticed if I hadn’t read your posts about ALDI! So, thank you! -Karen
