Aldi Grocery 2013-4-12

ALDI–Total Spent $106.23

(including produce pictured above plus (3) cans of black beans and (1) 16 oz. container of natural peanut butter not in the photo)

Grocery Saving Tip:Purchase staples at one low-cost store.

Aldi had some great prices on produce this week and has lower prices than my local Walmart on many items. I was able to get:

4 lb bags of navel oranges for $1.69

2 pints of strawberries for $1.79 each

1 pint grape tomatoes $1.29

bananas for $.44 a pound

3 dozen eggs for $1.59 each and lots more great deals!

Walmart 2013-4-12

WALMART–Spent $26.98.

Grocery Saving Tip: Shop the sales at multiple stores if they are within a few miles of each other.

The Walmart is right down the road from Aldi and had boneless, skinless chicken breasts for $1.99  pound which is $.50/lb cheaper than Aldi’s price. I also had to buy our tortilla chips there because Aldi’s chips are not gluten free, as well as some gluten free pasta.

Publix 2013-4-12

PUBLIX--Spent $8.49.  

 I had to make one more stop at Publix because neither Aldi nor Walmart carry Udi’s gluten free bagels or the yogurt we like.


Weekly Total: $141.70

Monthly Total: $253.33 

($125/week budget for six people–I am over for the week, but only $3.00 over for the month.)

    At our Aldi,eggs are .69 a dozen,not $1.59,thankful for that with a family of 7!! Love their produce!

      That’s great Liberty! I have noticed that Aldi prices here are higher than what other bloggers talk about getting, but they are still lower than other stores in my area.

    I am a huge fan of Aldi. I try to do as much of my shopping there as possible. Right now, we budget $200 per week for our family, but I’ve consistently been spending only $150 as I learn to get the sales better. This isn’t just food items, however, cleaning and hygiene items are included in my budget.
    Another good tip that I have done is to look for gas savings. We have a Reasors store, and when you spend $50, you get 5 cents off per gallon of gas. Because both my husband and I have 40 minute commutes per day, this is a lifesaver for our household budget.

      That is a great tip Erin! I have a friend who shops almost exclusively at the store in her area that gives gas rewards and she bases her menu on the weekly sales at that store.
