    Those Aldi prices are amazing! The Aldi’s in our area all remodeled, and prices have gone way up on most things. I miss those low grocery store receipts!!

      Oh man! That’s a bummer. I’m sorry to hear that. I love Aldi’s prices! – Gretchen, MSM Team

      • Robyn says:

        I live in the Chicago area, so grocery prices are high in general. But after the remodel, prices for some things doubled. Aldi used to be my go-to for keeping my grocery budget under control. Now, with Covid, my grocery budget is officially out of control!!
