One of my favorite places to shop is Aldi! I love knowing I can walk in and out with a week’s worth of groceries with out spending a weeks worh of pay check! It makes me so happy to know I don’t have to spend our entire weekly paychecks on food. Aldi is known for its inexpensive groceries, but over the years it has only gotten better. Here are some ways you may not know how to save money at Aldi!
Go for the organic options at Aldi
I don’t think there is a more inexpensive place to buy organics than at Aldi. Aldi takes pride in offering their customers organic foods at prices they can afford. The Aldi brand of organic food is called Full Circle. Look for that logo, when you’re searching for organic items at Aldi.
Bring your own bags to Aldi
If you have never shopped at Aldi, you should know that they don’t provide bags. They don’t even bag your items for you, you do. Some people may think this is weird, but it’s how they keep their costs down. By not providing bags or providing someone to bag your groceries, they are saving on labor costs.
Considering saving money at Aldi? Bring your own bags. You can buy bags there, but the cost is anywhere from 6 cents for paper to 10 cents for plastic. Cloth bags are $1.99 and up! You can also scope out boxes to put your groceries in, if you’re in a pinch.
Shop for produce at Aldi
I only do my produce shopping at Aldi. Their produce is about as cheap as a farmer’s market. If you eat a lot of fruits and veggies, then this is the place to shop. While they have good produce, it can go bad quickly. So, only buy if you plan on using up soon. I can get most fruits and veggies, in a package, for under $2.
Their new baby line is awesome
Something all my parent friends should know is that the baby line at Aldi is amazing. You can buy diapers, wipes, and baby food for decent prices. A package of baby wipes is around $1.30, depending on what part of the country you live in. A package of about 30 diapers is about $5. Those are good deals, considering the prices of diapers in other stores. Plus, I have tried the diapers and wipes out myself and they are as good as any other popular brand.
Shopping at Aldi is lifechanging in so many ways. You can afford groceries again without sacrificing. If you haven’t given Aldi a try, go ahead. The only thing I struggle with, is they don’t have specialty items, so I do have to go to bigger stores for those (Low carb tortillas and so on).
