ALDI produce

This week I decided to skip my weekly Walmart price matching trip, simply because my feet were too tired to carry me there. Instead I stocked up on produce at ALDI, and I only spent a few dollars more than if I had made my way to Walmart with my local ads. For the past week I have been eating lettuce from the garden, but I decided to pick up some lettuce at ALDI, so that my homegrown lettuce can grow abundant again.

If I had gone to Walmart, I would have added a few extra price matching items, so I simply just left them out of my shopping trip. Sometimes convenience wins, and it sure is convenient to shop at ALDI.

  1. I bought one of the butternut squashes on Wednesday. I couldn’t believe the great price! I got a HUGE one for $1.49! Publix is selling them for $1.29 lb! The one I bought would have been at least $3 at publix! I cut it up in cubes, then roasted it with a little olive oil, salt, pepper, and a little garlic powder. It was incredible!

  2. I really need to check them out. We have an Aldi store now.
