Every time there's a discussion on computer sales at Aldi, the store's whole existence becomes a topic of discussion here.

I can feed our family of seven on $250 a month buy buying at Aldi (not counting produce and WIC items). But getting their prices has been a chore, until now. I found and scanned a price list I found at our new Aldi. The date says the prices are effective until 4/12/08, but in my experience their prices don't fluctuate much - or vary much by location (we just moved from NJ to MI, and prices are as I remember them).

Unlike other store's circulars, this list includes the prices of ALL the items Aldi carries and their retail prices, with package sizes.

I've also mentioned Aldi in the Angel Food thread - this is why we don't do Angel Food Ministries, Aldi is cheaper even than that program.

Part of the Hot Deal here is not having to drive to your local Aldi to check prices!

Only problem I have had at Aldi is their produce is often NOT the freshest. On the other hand, it's pretty obvious, i.e. browning mushrooms so they are easy to avoid. I always have a backup if I must have an item of produce and I am going to Aldi. Otherwise, they're great.

Yeah, in NJ I got produce at Produce Junction, here in MI I have to go to Meijer. Never really bought produce at Aldi's.

Another thing: getting meats at the big chain loss leader sales is still your best bet for most meats.

Aldis is a great place pricewise to shop for probably 80% of your grocery needs. For certain "brand" names you absolutely cannot live without I go across the street to a big chain. You will definitely save money at Aldis.

I find Aldi a pain to shop.
Hours are nearly impossible for me to shop, the selection sucks, cash & debit only (I'm a rewards cc user w/o a debit card) and their meat prices are always higher than just about every store in the area.
They do have a handful of items that are cheaper and comparable to know brands but not enough to make me want to go way out of the way to get there.

why do you need a price list? Just do all of your shopping at aldi. If you pay a little more for one item, remember that most everything in the store is cheaper.
I am feeding a family of 4 for about 150 bucks a month.

I love it when snacks for the kids are a dollar.

And.........it is quick to shop there on my way home from work. No long lines and I don't have to walk way in the
back of a big store.

Meat comes to mind. It works out to $1.60 a lb for ground beef, sometimes meijer, shoprite, albertsons runs a special where its cheaper.

Aldi's prices are more than 5% below the other stores... so it's worth it to me to pay cash and save more than spending more in order to get CC rewards.

But otherwise, I'm a big CC rewards user also.

wow i just looked over those prices, and although its not necessarily name brands, it still seems even cheaper than shoprite/stopnshop store brand stuff

i think i may like this place, once they finish setting up and open the store

the only thing i dont like is this whole idea of paying cash/debit... i use my Visa at supermarkets and get 5% back

It's a grocery store built around german efficiency. They don't sell old stuff, but their own brand (like walmart).

However, they don't provide bags or baggers, no credit cards, shopping carts require a quarter deposit to use, stores are minimally staffed (but very fast checkers!) and they barely advertise. So prices are a lot lower - lower even than sam's and costco.

It isn't old or expired stuff, they just carry brands you've never heard of, but are basically the same thing, for a pretty low price. I've only been there a few times but was totally satisfied with the items that I did purchase. Different packaging but the items are identical. Also helping to keep prices down is the fact that they do not provide you with grocery bags or allow you to use CC's.

edit --- looks like previous poster beat me to it..

Also like to add that I don't get why someone would pay more for something just to get rewards? Do you like "presents" that much? I use a rewards card for everything I can, but it doesn't make any sense to spend more money than you need to just to wait a year and have them give some of it back to you. Not a valid reason to avoid shopping at a place like this, IMO.
