ALDI groceries

Today the Frugality Is Free family is hosting a neighborhood holiday party, so yesterday was a big holiday shopping day at ALDI, and we sure filled up the cart. It is amazing how far it is possible to stretch a $100 party budget at ALDI, because even with gourmet products in the cart, ALDI’s prices are difficult to beat.

If I had shopped at any of our other local grocery stores, I would have paid $30 – $50 more for the party foods and gourmet products, which I purchased at ALDI for $100.
