Today I finally got a chance to visit one of the three new ALDI stores in South Florida, and I was not disappointed. I did not get to do much shopping, as I had to take the bus home with my three boys, but I did get to do a lot of price comparison between ALDI and my regular grocery stores. I will post my list soon.

Besides visiting ALDI, I also needed to find my last Christmas present, before I ship them off to Europe. We were supposed to start out at Old Navy, but it apparently closed down, since I was there a few months ago, so we started out at Target instead. In my search for ALDI, my sons and I walked around a shopping plaza, and we discovered both a produce market, and and Indian store. The Indian Store was a real bonus, as I have been looking to get new spices for a long time. 

Since my family has been sick all week, our fridge is pretty full, so I just bought a few things that I knew I could not find at a better price at our regular store. I sure wish I could have bought eggs (1 dozen $0.69), milk (1 gallon $1.99) or OJ (64 oz at 1.79), but with 3 boys, 1 shopping bag was enough, and I knew the eggs would never make it home.
