In the spirit of saving money and finding as many Krazy Deals as we possibly can, we decided I should finally make a trip to our local ALDI’s and see what all the talk was about.

I had never heard of ALDI until one moved into our town and it seemed like overnight they popped up in every town around us. For those that may not be familiar with ALDI, they are a discount supermarket chain. According to their website, ALDI was “founded by the Albrecht family, the first ALDI store opened in 1961 in Germany, making ALDI the first discounter in the world.”  When our local ALDI store first opened we did go and check it out, however, we did not purchase anything at that time. Our first impression was that it was very similar to a Save-A-Lot, which is another discount supermarket chain and just like ALDI you bag/box, your own groceries after check out.

Also, when you go to ALDI make sure to arrive with a quarter in hand, because you’re going to need it if you want to use a cart for shopping. You will get your quarter back when you return the cart.


 So with my grocery list in hand, I embarked on my ALDI shopping journey. The store was clean and well organized and neatly zoned. I like that Aldi offers its own brands like LiveGFree for those of us that have gluten sensitivities. Some of the other ALDI brands offered are SimplyNature, Fit & Active, Earth Grown, Never Any!, Specially Selected, and Pueblo Lindo. For this trip, I only tried the LiveGFree and SimplyNature ALDI brands.

So out of everything I got, we were all pleasantly surprised that everything tasted really good. The quality, textured, taste, of each item I purchased was all good. You would have never guessed that any of these items came from a discount supermarket chain! We plan on going back and trying out their other brands as well, also some of these items have now been added to my regular grocery list and pantry staples!


So, did I save any money? Well, let’s compare!

  8. I definitely have some favorite ALDI purchases like their organic produce, but I find that we have to eat it quickly (like with 3 days) so it doesn’t go bad. Overall I think it’s a good community grocery store option. - Elle Em
