My fruitbowl was completely empty, and for the first time in months I could actually see the bottom of the produce drawer. Since I was on family vacation last week, I had not been to Aldi for two weeks and my fridge was definitely showing signs of Aldi withdrawal. This morning, I headed to Aldi early to stock up and my kids were eager to get some fresh fruit in the house again.
I did not buy anything out of the ordinary, and as I stated earlier I was in Aldi price shock, as my favorite Aldi products had all seen Aldi price increases. Because of the price increases, I bought one less orange juice and one less pack of eggs than I had planned too. I know Kmart has eggs on sale at $0.99 this week, and sometimes I can get the orange juice price down at Publix and Target thanks to coupons.
