Aldi is my favourite grocery store. There are a couple of reasons; it feels a bit like home. I grow up shopping at Aldi and it sustained most of us when we were at Uni – in Germany Aldi has Alcohol!!! (So do the ones in Victoria)
Nowadays I love it because it offers NO CHOICE. It’s a no brainer and super quick. Where else can you shop (almost) everything for a week in 20 min with 3 kids in tow? Where else can you send hubby or the neighbours to do the shopping for you? If the shopping list says: rolled oats, they will bring the right stuff. It’s the grocery version of an organised household.
To make the most of it I sort my shopping list. All items on the right side of the list can be bought at Aldi, everything else I need to get at a speciality shop or a normal supermarket.
I also trust their specials products, which saves on the shopping around. And they re appear in an almost yearly cycle – so if my iron is kaput, I just don’t iron till Aldi sells one. (Fantastic excuse!!)
