So after sharing the other day about my giving up on Kroger (and from the comments, it sounds like I’m not alone!), I dug out the circulars from the other stores in my area from the recycle box. I was pleasantly surprised at the prices at Aldi on 2 staples in our house during the fall…
- Squash – $.59 EACH! (Best price I’ve seen in 2 years!)
- Crushed tomatoes, 28 oz. – $.89 eac
I couldn’t resist these prices, so I made a trip in, while I was sorta in the area. Every penny counts when making $5 meals…and it certainly helps to have such inexpensive vegetables to keep the overall costs down!
I also took the opportunity to look at prices on other products that I buy regularly, like pretzels, 100% fruit strips, and a few other things…and what to you know…$.50-$1.50 less that Kroger. I’m thinking that if I shop there for more of the staples, I might be able to get our grocery bill back down under $75/week or less!
We’ll just have to wait and see…
Total spent at Aldi: $4.14 (no sales tax on food in OH!)
