Aldi is where I do 80% of my shopping, it's a German origianted store...we are fortunate to have two in Appleton,WI. It takes a little getting used to, they have a rent a cart system, so have your quarter ready to plug the cart, they only take cash, debit hooked up to your checking account, food stamps and travelers checks. Also, bring your own bags or totes to pack your groceries---they charge for bags--which I guess every store does in their costs, Aldi is upfront about it!!! You can help yourself to empty boxes too for free!!!
The just started expanding their line of groceries---carrying fresh meat, new items weekly, great Austrian chocolates for any chocolate lovers...wonderful pizza for $1.99---love the sauce, great produce if you get there before 4pm---I probably pay 30-50% less on everything...I do more of the work...at the end I bag it myself...but who cares....more money to spend on something else....they run weekly special purchase items from furniture to namebrand laundry detergent (Tide/Era).....check one out in your area
