Over the past few months, there has been more and more on my plate. Between finishing up end of year projects at home school co-op, a teething baby, a rowdy toddler and my husband’s changing work schedule, I have been having a hard time keeping up.
Unfortunately, one of the biggest time frustrations has been getting my coupons done. Getting coupons done for both grocery shopping and drugstore shopping has fallen by the wayside some weeks.
After hearing several friends talk about shopping at Aldi and how much they save, I decided to attempt it myself. Since Aldi doesn’t use coupons, I figured if I could save enough getting groceries there, it would free up time to be more consistent with my drugstore shopping, which is where I get all our toiletries and household items.
Since I don’t like being surprised when shopping, I did a little research before embarking on my adventure. I found this great post on how to shop at Aldi from Gimme Some Oven beyond helpful. She truly has EVERYTHING you may need to know laid out! It made the trip a lot simpler and streamlined for me, since I knew exactly what to anticipate.
My trip went off without a hitch! The store was clean, well organized and everyone was friendly. Like really, genuinely, super duper friendly. It was so refreshing! The employees were also quick and efficient, which I loved!
I was able to get six bottles of juice, a gallon of milk, turkey lunch meat, five pounds of hamburger, steaks, three packages of cheese, six boxes of cereal, plus lots more for just $120 — and that includes $10 worth of reusable bags! I was really pleased with my savings. Now that we’ve had a few days to eat the products as well, I can also say how pleased we are with the quality!
I definitely plan to shop at Aldi again in a couple weeks!
