Understanding Being Frugal – Aldi Shopping Trip 11/11/09

Aldi, Shopping Trips, Uncategorized
My dear wonderful husband went to Aldi last week for me. I asked him to pick up a gallon of milk and to check on the cost of butter.  During the holiday season butter usually goes on sale and my price point is under $2 (4 sticks 1lb).   He said no problem will be happy to do that.  I wanted at least 4 lbs if it is under $2. I got home later that evening to discover that he bought milk for $2.29, 4 lbs of butter for $1.69 each,  and lots of other things!  I was happy that he found some good deals like 10 bottles of Winking Owl wine for $2.99 each.  We will enjoy that.  And, he picked up some snacks for lunches but at the end…

Aldi Shopping Trip 9/4/09

Aldi, Shopping Trips, Uncategorized
Before I started to use coupons I would go to Aldi on a regular basis.  In the NOVA area, we have 4 Aldi's now and originally we had 2.  It is a great grocery store!   Not many people know what I'm talking about when I say, "Aldi", usually I get, "What is that?" or "I know Aldi, VA!".  Then I explain the Aldi store and the history of it. Did you know that one of the brothers that started Aldi is the owner of Trader Joes?   It's true.  You can even find Trader Joe like products at Aldi.  Joe Coulombe was the founder of Trader Joes and later sold it.  More information about Aldi and its german history HERE. What is Aldi?  Click HERE for a quick tour.  You can…
