Anyone Shop At Aldi's?

Recommended Posts

I've seen Aldi stores while I've been out and about, but never really thought about them. I just assumed they were a regular grocery store, but never actually bothered to go into one because I have just always shopped at ShopRite.

 

Anyway, I heard someone mention it on the radio this morning and she was talking about how she saves a lot of money by shopping there. As many of you can probably relate to, anything I can do to save money right now is appealing.

 

So I looked at the website and I have some questions:

 

Is this similiar to a wholesale store? Meaning, do I have to purchase items in bulk? Or can I purchase single items?

 

Also, you don't have to have a membership or anything to shop here, do you?

 

If you do shop at Aldi, or have ever shopped there what do you like or not like about it?

 

Thanks for the info!

I shop at Aldi's every once in a while. I haven't every had anything bad from there. If you're looking for deals on cereal, milk, bread, and stuff like that. My daughter, who is 8, on the other hand...hates going in there with me...she says it smells like cheese. So, if I were you I would go in and take a look!

We used to shop at one every once in a while when we lived close to one. you dont need a membership and dont need to buy in bulk like costco. they dont have bags so bring your own and they only take cash, check or debit card. they have a mix of name brand and brands that i have never heard of. the one thing i noticed, when ever we got bread there it didnt last long before going old. you can save quite a bit of money shopping there though.

I've shopped there for random things Ive found deals on butterball turkeys (my fiance deep frys them when he tailgates with the boys), tri colored peppers are usually cheap and my personal fav Fresh Flowers. You can get a basic bouquet for under $3.00!

 

Happy Shopping

hi we have aldis here in the uk i use it fairly regually as you do spend less.pauls dad got us 2 turkey crowns as we had them last year and were very nice.In the uk budget stores have seen an increase in sales.I get there washing powder and shower cleaner.I love the different yogurts too.All i can really say is if your cutting back then its worth having a shop there.Shopping becomes boring when you are trying to cut costs as you pick up the same brands and leave quickly.I think they are a european company not british that have done very well out of the credit crunch.I agree the bread dosent keep that well and you do need to take your bags.hope that helps

I love Aldi's for the basic staple items and also sometime they get great deals on brand name items (Tide, Welch's, B-Ball, etc).

 

I have purchased juices, bread, eggs, milk, oil, seasonings, flour, chips, potatoes, some veggies , and you cant go wrong with that. I do save much more by getting things there than in the store. Love tht place. You will pay for your bags, which are reusable. Worth a tour!

I shop there every once in a while, only because there is one so close to my house if I run out of something I can run and grab it, but for staples I can't rely on them having what I need in stock.

Yes I do go there for some things. For the most part I love ACME or ShopRite. Anyway, Aldi has good stuff, bags of frozen meats, green peppers, cereal, milk, eggs, apple sauce, pastas, ziplock bags, etc. Some certain name brand stuff though I'd rather get at ACME though. Also, the cart system is pretty awesome imo. It keeps the parking lot clean and the carts in order. You have to insert a quarter to release a cart, and when you put it back, you get your quarter back. They ring you up kinda funny too. They just scan it all and place in it the previous person cart and they take your for the next person. You have to buy bags or bring your own. You should go and check it out, you will def save $ going there!!

    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
