Go shopping at Aldi's

Back in Germany I didn't consider Aldi the source for my everyday groceries, because there were other stores more conveniently located.

You need a quarter to be able to use a shopping cart, and plastic bags are not free. The store is relatively small, you do your entire weekly grocery list within half an hour. You don't see 50 different brands of the same item. And you save a lot of money.

We estimate about $250 savings on our monthly grocery bill. We found spanish red wine for $6.99 a bottle, and everything else for 30% to 50% less than Meijer's. They don't honour coupons, they don't advertise in the Sunday paper, but they are open on Sundays - which is one very convenient difference to Aldi's in Germany.
