I cry at how expensive living in California is. It’s rough out here for a freelancer. With kids. I can’t say that I’m totally committed to eating better and feeding the family healthy. I want to but reasons. The good food is pricey and the only way we were doing it was shopping 4-6 different stores a week. That got tiring and ridiculous. I couldn’t squeeze in trips to local farmers markets like I’d like and forget finding all the things you want in one store. Grocery shopping was my mission impossible. Until ALDI. I saw the coming soon banners go up in my city and kept tabs on the local newspaper for any info on the grand opening. A homegirl emailed me a list of her favorite ALDI products and I read blogs but nothing prepared me for shopping there. There is nothing like it.
Bring a quarter + reusable shopping bags. You’ll get your quarter back and you’ll finally use all those shopping bags you have laying around. You put the quarter in the slot and it pushes the back lock out. When you return the cart, you put the back lock back in and your quarter pops out. You smart, ALDI. Major key.
WYSIWYG. You are old school if you know what that means. What You See Is What You Get. No fancy displays. Boxes on boxes on boxes.
PRICES are what keeps me coming back to shop at ALDI. I couldn’t even get a dozen eggs at the local .99 store for .99!
Double Guarantee! I can’t believe this isn’t a secret. There it is right in the open. If you don’t like an ALDI exclusive item, they will give you your money back and replace it. WOW.
ALDI gets it. The community. Me. You. Us. 90% of the groceries are ALDI-exclusive brands. Tested regularly to make sure they taste just as good, if not better, than the national brand.
ALDI offers its SimplyNature® line which includes USDA Certified organic and Non-GMO verified items, liveGfree® gluten-free products, USDA Choice meats and NeverAny! products that are free from added antibiotics, hormones and animal by-products.
We’re picky when it comes to buying chicken. We only get bone-in chicken breasts and at under $2 a pound, ALDI is getting all our business.
Our weekly favorites. Chris has me making lemon herb pork chops with spaghetti. The kids love the pizza.
I could write a love letter to the Specially Selected Milk Chocolate Coated Butter Cookies. It’s that serious.
ALDI done changed the grocery game. No more shopping 4-6 stores for us. We’re now down to 1-3 (can’t get marinated al pastor and ceviche yet). Their different style is done in all the right ways. Shoppers will find that by shopping at this easy-to-shop store, you can save up to 50% on grocery bills with high quality products at everyday low prices. ALDI opened 25 stores in Southern California this year! Stay tuned to aldi.us or ALDI USA Facebook page for the latest updates on grand openings.
