I love Aldi! It's so easy to shop there because you don't have choices. There is only one brand of everything. And the food is good quality and cheap. Bring a quarter for your cart. You get the quarter back when you return the cart (you'll find that not many carts get left in the parking lot). They don't take credit cards or checks, only cash or debit. You bag your own groceries and you can bring your own bags or purchase them there for 5 or 10 cents. They have most of the stuff you need, but don't expect to find everything there.
