Why Shopping at ALDI Saves You Money!



ALDI Saves You Money on Your Groceries on time2saveworkshops.com

 

You can get great deals at ALDI stores and save quite a bit of money. There are several ways that ALDI is able to do this.

Last year, I had the privilege of touring an ALDI grocery store with the ALDI PR team. As you can imagine, it was very interesting to walk through the store and hear how and why their prices are often as much as 50% lower than other grocery stores. Here are a few operational efficiencies that allow ALDI to keep costs to their consumers low while providing quality products: [Read more...]

My Couponing Confession: I Haven’t Used Coupons in a LONG Time!

Kasey here, I haven’t used coupons in a LONG time. Maybe once or twice  in the past 6 months. There, I said it. I was so busy with my book release earlier last year, I think I just needed a season afterwards to breathe. Also, if you have read my book or know me then you know I have never loved coupons. I’m not one to get super excited about deals or coupons. They have just been necessary. My husband has gotten laid off unexpectedly 3 times in the past 5 years, the most recent last January. Coupons were never a choice for us, we had to use them to get by financially. Plus, we completely changed the way we eat last year, cutting out most processed foods which made it even more difficult to coupon.

The past couple of months I have still saved on my grocery bill by shopping at ALDI and taking advantage of deals on things like toilet paper and paper towels on Amazon. As I watched our stockpile dwindle on other grocery, household, and personal items I knew I’d have to make a decision.  Even though, there are very few grocery items I can use coupons on (since we changed to a healthier eating lifestyle) there are still some items like condiments, paper products, and a few other items that we can buy with coupons.

So, on Friday I decided it was time to get back in the saddle. I don’t usually go to a bunch of different stores, but since I hadn’t couponed in so long and my husband and kids were up for the challenge we went to Target, Publix, and CVS. I have included my shopping trips below along with our savings. Was it worth it? Yes, we saved money and it was less stressful than I thought it was going to be. With homeschool and two home based businesses my hands are pretty full.

If couponing has become a drudgery to you, or you feel like it has to be all or nothing….it doesn’t. As I’ve always said do the best you can. Seasons of life change, during some seasons it’s less feasible than others. The biggest thing, don’t be hard on yourself if you aren’t saving “as much” as you think you should or “as much” as someone else. Instead, celebrate YOUR victories!!

There were tons of items on sale at Publix this week. However, since we really try to eat as healthy as possible I rarely buy anything boxed or pre-made anymore. We really try to stick to eating as clean as possible. Although, sometimes I make my own bar-b-que sauce I don’t make the rest of our condiments homemade.  You can find this weeks Publix Match-ups here.

This was my favorite trip! We have been out of body wash and have been paying for toothpaste (gasp) I know, crazy. With coupons, and ECB’s the toothpaste was free, Dawn only $0.49, and Body Wash just $0.67.  You can find the current weeks CVS deals here.

My daughter is a type I diabetic, so we have to keep juice boxes with us all the time in case she has a low blood sugar. With the sale last week at Target combined with coupons, each pack equaled $1.19. You can find the current weeks Target deals here.

Not bad for our first couponing trip in a long time.
