I’m a frugal foodie (if there is such a thing!)…I love to cook, I love gourmet ingredients, but I’m very frugal when it comes to my grocery bill. I’ve had a love/hate relationship with the gourmet food section of my grocery for a long, long time. I love walking through the aisles and looking at the food, but I just can’t justify the prices. It’s always sticker shock at the register.
When Aldi arrived in our neighborhood, I expected a low price grocery. It is, but it’s not your typical low price, low quality grocery. In fact, when you walk in, you’ll see a big sign that says…
“Aldi Truth #1: When deciding between eating well and saving money, always choose both.”
I like that, and I like Aldi.
If you’re not familiar with Aldi, it’s a no-frills grocery store that promises to save you up to 50%! These guys make Walmart look expensive, but it takes some getting used to, so please read my Aldi Shopping Tips to maximize your savings.
