Who doesn't love Aldi these days????? Saving money AND getting tasty food?? Count me in!!!!
I heard about Aldi years ago when we still lived in Augusta. There wasn't one there yet (is now!!!), so I had no idea what I was reading about when everyone was so excited about all the money they were saving at Aldi. I read about the prices being seriously lower, I read about needing a quarter for the grocery cart (we call them "buggies" around here!!!), and I read about there being no bags to put your groceries in. Hmmmm. No bags for your groceries. How in the world do you do that????
After a few weeks of seeing others check out, pull over the "the counter area" in Aldi, and fill the bags they brought from home with their just purchased goods, I decided there HAD to be a better way. And I found one!!!
Now maybe I'm not the first one to discover this, but I don't know anyone else who has done it except me (and the few struggling mothers I shared it with in the check out line). Y'all ready? I keep an empty laundry basket and empty cooler in the back of my van so that as soon as I leave Aldi, I put all my food in one of the two large containers!!! YES!! So when I get home, I carry in only two containers. I don't spend extra time bagging groceries and I don't have to carry in all the bags and then keep them for the following week. I just carry in the two totes, put all the groceries away, and stick them back in the van for next time. WOOHOOO!!! Super easy and major time saver for me!!
Anyone else LOVE Aldi? If so, how do YOU get your groceries home???
