Since we started eating healthier this year, a large part of our grocery budget goes to fresh fruits and veggies. To keep our grocery budget under control I typically make an Aldi run since they have such great prices on produce. Since we had a list a mile long of projects we needed to tackle in our back yard I didn’t want to spend my afternoon running errands. We had to go to Walmart to pick up light bulbs and a couple other items so I decided to price match the produce in this weeks Aldi’s ad. I was surprised to see just how much money I saved.
You have to be careful to price match the exact item. For example, Walmart had 3lb bags of onions in order to price match I needed to purchase a 2lb bag like shown in the ad above. Same thing goes for the corn, Walmart had single ears of corn instead of the 4pack at Aldi. The Watermelon, strawberries, and blueberries were the exact items.
- (1) Seedless Watermelon – $4.98
- (1) Blueberries – $3.99
- (4) Strawberries – $1.78
- (1) Seedless Watermelon – $3.99
- (1) Blueberries – $1.99
- (4) Strawberries – $0.99
Total Savings – $6.15
So, was it worth it? To me it was. Personally, I don’t have time to drive all over town to get every deal. It was nice to get everything we needed at Walmart today, and take advantage of Aldi’s great price on produce. Saving $6.15 on 6 items isn’t too shabby in my book!
