Shopping at Aldi...and my grocery list

Do you shop at Aldi?

Over the years, I have found myself shopping at Aldi more and more.

Here are some unique tid-bits:

1. Aldi does not accept manufacturers coupons.

2. You have to bring a quarter to get a buggy.

Good news, you will get your quarter back when you return your buggy. What a clever idea! They can operate on one less employee. They don't have to hire a "buggy runner". No buggy runner = Lower prices

3. You need to bring your own grocery bags. By Aldi not providing grocery bags, they keep their overhead down and in turn... it helps keep the prices down for the consumer.

4. They do not sell name brand items. No worries, I have been pleased.

5. They offer a 100 percent guarantee. If you are not satisfied with their products, for any reason, bring in your receipt and the packaging. They will refund your money and replace the item.

Can you tell that I am a fan of Aldi? I highly recommend Aldi. The prices blow Wal-mart out of the water.

"Okay, now we know you like Aldi... what do you buy?"
