Is it just my Aldi store, or has your Aldi store raised almost all the prices by at least $0.25 in the last few weeks? The girls and I stopped by there yesterday and cheese was up to $1.99 from $1.79. Milk was $3.28! And I noticed all sorts of other price increases.
Overall, their prices are still lower, but if they keep this up, it won’t be long before they aren’t anymore! I feel so badly for those of you who are on extremely tight budgets to be dealing with all these price increases. 🙁
However, I don’t mean to be complaining as I know that many of you don’t even have the luxury of an Aldi and are stuck with one over-priced grocery store. It just struck me yesterday how costly it seems basic necessities are becoming. And I’m more inspired than ever to try and do better about buying ahead when prices are at their lowest!
Now for what we bought:
1 canister oats — $1.99
2 loaves of honey wheat bread — clearanced to $0.69 each
2 packages of sweet corn — $0.99 each
3 bags of chicken breasts — $5.49 each
2 bags of apples — $2.89 each
1 jar of peanut butter — $1.49
2 packages of strawberries — $1.69 each
2 packages of baby carrots — $0.99 each
1 cantaloupe — $1.69
1 8-oz. cheddar cheese — $1.99
1 can orange juice — $1.09
My total with tax was $41.97
