    I always love seeing your trips. Since we have transitioned to a vegan diet, my kids have been eating Aldi’s oyster crackers in the place of goldfish. I must admit, the oyster crackers are delicious and such a great price. How many ounces are the pecan halves?What a great deal on strawberries!

  • Rebecca says:

    I wish our Aldi was that inexpensive! Our prices are about .50 more for each item you listed…

    • Kim says:

      I was going to say the same about Aldi prices. I must be paying for the new remodel.

      • Brigette Shevy says:

        Both of our Aldi’s have been remodeled in the last year. It’s probably just the area of the country, we’re in – ??

    • Brigette Shevy says:

      In the 4 years I’ve been shopping at the Aldi’s here in SC…almost all of the prices on things have gone DOWN (there are a few things that have fluctuated a lot – like eggs). I just keep blinking my eyes in amazement, honestly. It’s really weird, and I’m not sure how Also is able to pull it off. I’m not complaining, though!

  • Denise Friend says:

    Wow! Your Aldi prices are amazing. 4 blocks of cheese for under $4?? Ours is $1.67 each. We have a local store where cheese is always $3/5 for 8 oz and that is definitely the cheapest around.

    • Brigette Shevy says:

      They aren’t normally that cheap. The past couple of weeks, though, the mozzarella 8oz blocks have been $0.99! I agree – it’s a great price!
