WE ARE FINALLY GETTING AN ALDIS LESS THAN A MILE FROM MY
HOUSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have heard several references to them as being
inexpensive, and I am so excited. What all do they carry? Have you bought
anything from there (i.e. dish soap, laundry detergent, etc) that did not work
as well? Please give me all your hints and experience with Aldi! Can you tell
I am excited?!?! Wal-mart supercenters ran off all the inexpensive grocery
stores here so we are in desperate need for another store. I look forward to
hearing from you all!
Happy late 4th of July!!

Aldi's is great for veggies, general baking needs, pasta,
plastic/foil, dairy, eggs and fruit. They don't have a wide variety
though. Like in "rice-a-roni" they only carry beef and chicken. The
chips/snack foods aren't the best but they are okay. Ramen noodles
are cheap. As are canned veggies. The canned soups are okay too.
We don't like the toothbrushes but do get our vitamins and "Tums"
there. The laundry stuff is okay. Scoopable kitty litter didn't
seem to clump very well. Pop is okay but not our first choice.
Frozen chicken breast are pretty good but watch out for freezer
burn. My sister buys tons of the ice cream sandwich bars and
drumsticks. Oh and according to the manager at ours the can pasta
like ravioli is made by Chef Boyardee, the coffee by Folgers and the
better spaghetti sauce by Prego (overruns with the store brand
label). Though I am not so sure I believe that about Prego. They
don't really offer much low-fat stuff and don't get too carried away
with the high carb that they tend to offer a lot of.
Basically we get the staples there and the other stuff at a regular
