Aldi 1/18/12

Has anyone else noticed an increase in shoppers at Aldi lately?  It has been so much more crowded the past few times I have gone.  I've also noticed a huge increase in couponers when I participate in Super Doubles of Triples.

Here is this weeks shopping trip.

Sugar Frosted Flakes $1.79
Wild Caught Salmon $4.49
Bite Size Shredded Wheat $1.99
Cinnamon Crunch Cereal $1.99
Spring Mix Salad $1.99
5 lbs Red Potatoes $1.29
2 packages Chocolate Chips $1.79 each = $3.58
2.5 lbs Bananas $1.11
Carrots $.59 (yep $.59 for a bag of carrots)
Gallon Milk $3.39
Crackers $1.19
Crackers $1.19 (I just noticed this and wonder if I was charged twice for the same thing)
Sred Mozarella $3.49
Frozen Mozarella sticks $2.49
2 Dannon Danimals Smoothie Drinks 6 pk. $1.99 each = $3.98
Plain Bagels $1.49
American Cheese Singles $1.99
Butter $2.29
Homestyle Beef Soup $1.39
Chili $1.09
Eggs $1.39

Total  $45.25

By adjusting our budget to $50 per week I was able to stay within budget and get a few treats without blowing the budget.  I'm still trying to decide what to do with the extra.  I have been considering saving it and seeing what we have at the end of the year, saving it and seeing where we are at the end of 3 months and then deciding......Still unsure but that's for another post.


  1. wow...your food is so much cheaper than ours (except our milk is cheaper)

  2. Sarah- The prices at Aldi tend to be consistently cheaper than other stores. There are times when with a coupon I can get an item from a different store at a better price but I choose to stick with Aldi unless there are several items at another store I have coupons for because otherwise the extra drive of going to two stores is not worth it.
