    Can we take a moment to fully appreciate the wonderfulness that is Aldi?

    I can shop for two weeks worth of groceries for 40 bucks.

    I can buy a 4 dollar bottle of wine that doesn't suck.

    I can appreciate the system and that most other shoppers observe the system and the unspoken rules.

    I can load up on delicious things for a fraction of the cost anywhere else and get excited to meal prep while saving money.

    I can use my own bags and cut down on unneeded waste.

    I can marvel at the speed in which the cashiers throw my stuff into the cart.

    I can bond with other people who also love Aldi.

    I love Aldi. The quality of their brands are 99% as good or better than the name brands. I always go there first, then swing by a different store if they didn't carry something. Their chocolate is amazing if you've not tried it.

    Their prices are wonderful, you get spoiled by them, but that's ok. Love that store-!! :love:

    I grew up with Aldi in Germany. It definitely was the "different" store. Discount, discount !!!

    What was amazing is that the items did not have price stickers on them. The prices were on shelves and signs, but not on the items. Yet, the cashiers had to ring them ALL up. By hand. No scanners back then. And they did it super fast.

    It is still strange to me, that Aldi is suddenly such a big thing, LOL.

    Last week loafs of whole wheat bread were 75 cents. I have three loafs (loaves?) in the freezer. 3 pounds of smoked sausage was 5 bucks. Also in the freezer. My "treat yo-self" is the coconut vanilla greek yogurt with dark chocolate chips. Also the winking owl shiraz doesn't suck (3.99)
    I eat a butt ton of cereal. 1.75 a box? Yes please. I also live in a heavily amish populated area so I'm always impressed watching them scan 50 bags of flour. Even the Amish know whats up.

    There are 10 soon-to-be 11 kids in my family, and my Mom loves Aldi. She usually shops for a month’s groceries at a time, so it’s usually two carts (we don’t have to buy some things since we have a garden)!!! So yes. Aldi fan right here!:D

    It's recently become pretty big in Australia. Their groceries are pretty cheap, but everyone just gets excited to see what discounted random items are in the middle of the store. :applaud:

    A while ago they had these really good clocks that help teach kids to tell the time. Teachers found out and spread the word and every store sold out really fast! :ROFLMAO:

    To be honest I love their tofu
    Big block of organic tofu for a quarter of the price of anywhere else and just as good quality. :LOL:
