    I loved to read this. Thank you for sharing.

  • Yoli says:

    Thanks for posting. I just found out our Aldi’s has prices that are about 40% higher for the same items. Our prices in Rancho Cucamonga for this same haul would be about $105.

    • Brigette Shevy says:

      Yes, Aldi prices do vary quite a bit around the country. It’s amazing how much location determines prices (hopefully salaries are higher where you live to compensate!:))

  • Lillian Mcclinton says:

    What I Like about ALDI is that most of the food is organic like Trader Joes. The meat has excellent prices. I go to the Store like vive Times per week.
