Even though Leavenworth built a new Aldi store close to our Home Depot, it took a while for me to begin shopping there. Now it is almost a weekly stop along with our basic grocery store, Dillons, which is a Kroger store.
We have been impressed with the quality and prices of their produce so I check their sale flyer each week to plan what I will get from them. This spring when they had fresh strawberries for $1.19/lb, we bought 25 pounds to core and freeze for smoothies and to go in yogurt.
We make quite a bit of homemade granola that we put toasted rice cereal in along with rolled oats so we buy the cereal at Aldi’s. We also like their oyster crackers. We also get sour cream, orange juice, butter, and heavy whipping cream there.
After Joseph and Elissa’s baby was born, I did their grocery shopping, and Elissa also buys quite a bit of produce plus other things from Aldi’s like parmesan cheese, shredded cheddar and mozzarella cheese, refried bean, tortillas, applesauce, and pasta.
Christopher and Anna Marie and John and Chelsy also like shopping at Aldi.
Be sure to have a quarter with you when you go because if you want a cart, you put a quarter into the cart rack to release your cart. Then when you put the cart back, your quarter is returned. There is another Aldi’s protocol I learned. If someone offers you their cart as you are headed for the cart rack, you offer them your quarter. Some take it; some don’t.
Trusting in Jesus,
“Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me,
bless his holy name” (Psalm 103:1).
