I’m not sure if it’s the unbeatable prices, infamous Aisle of Shame, weekly specials, or even the $2.95 Winking Owl wine that really got me on the ALDI bandwagon. I have been shopping here for a few years now, and until recently, I would split shopping between Publix/ALDI/Whole Foods/Trader Joe’s. Grocery shopping had become such a hassle that it had become my least favorite kind of shopping…
Thank you to the ‘ALDI god’s’ for finally offering more vegan options! As much as I love all kinds of specials you offer, I am particularly excited about your vegan cheeses, vegan coffee creamers, vegan hot dogs, and vegan burgers. To be completely honest, I’m not sure about about Winking Owl wine, but the Sangria is totally delicious and still the ALDI price of $2.95.
The usual grocery items I would purchase from any other store are dramatically cheaper- almond milk, spinach, salad dressing, pasta noodles + sauce, peanut butter + jelly, bread, etc. This allows me to save money (or spend it on something exciting in the AOS).
With 15+ locations in and around the Orlando area, be sure to find the one nearest you! You can check out their weekly special on their website here. I am a proud member of the ‘ALDI Aisle of Shame Community’ on Facebook, where people “CAW-CAW” throughout the store to find each other, inspire one another, and keep everyone up to date with all of the best deals and what’s selling off the shelves.
I wish I could remember the first time I found ALDI. I remember everyone saying it was an “inexpensive German owned grocery store that sold off-brands,” so I didn’t hop on the bandwagon until I realized how massively popular they were. Oh, how I wish I had gone sooner! Have you discovered the awesome deals at your local ALDI before?
