Aldi Shopping - Saved $15 @ Aldi - Link Up at the Aldi Savings Linky

I did not go Aldi shopping last week, which meant that we were now out of Aldi staples such as oatmeal, veggies and meat. I was surprised to see that Aldi eggs had gone up to $1.49, so it is a good thing that I picked up eggs at Walgreens for $1.29 each this week.

On a positive note, I was very excited to see that Aldi finally got cocoa powder in stock again, and although it went from $1.99 to $2.29, it is still $0.50 less than any of the competitor's prices. Another positive change at my local South Florida Aldi store was that Aldi finally got baking powder in the store. At $0.69, it is a price that cannot be beat.

  1. Heading to Aldis tomorrow! Cocoa ON SALE up here is $2.99...and as a frequent baker, I go through a lot of it! Will also load up on flour, sugar, butter, eggs, and plenty of fresh/canned veggies. Am mentally plotting my trip...
