ALDI: Price increases!

The sharp increase in commodities prices like wheat and oil is affecting grocery prices everywhere, and ALDI is being affected, too.

I made two trips to ALDI this week, and noticed (as did JRFrugalMom over at The ALDI Spot) that a lot of the prices had increased. Here are some changes I saw:

  • 1 dozen eggs - from 99¢ to $1.29
  • bananas - from 39¢/lb to 44¢/lb
  • whole wheat bread - from $1.19 to $1.29
  • 5 lb all-purpose flour - from $1.39 to $1.64
So far a gallon of milk remains at $1.99, and tortillas are still 99¢ per package.  But those items, along with apples, are the main things I'm buying right now at ALDI, so these price increases are hurting!  (But they're still cheaper than supermarket prices!)

Here's what I got in the two trips:

3 gallons milk @ $1.99 = $5.97
2 dozen eggs @ 99¢ = $1.98 (first trip)
1 dozen eggs @ $1.29 (second trip)
3 loaves whole wheat bread @ $1.29 = $3.87
1 cottage cheese @ $1.99
1 shredded cheddar cheese @ $2.69
1 juice pouches @ $1.69
1 3-lb apples @ $2.79
3 plastic bags @ $1.89 = $5.67
1 flour tortillas @ 99¢
1 chocolate chips @ $1.69

Tax: 46¢
Total spent: $31.08

still not bad! I went to my local aldis after work and spent $6.XX on a gallon of milk, a loaf of split top wheat bread (which was $.99) and a package of hamburger buns and a carton of eggs. I wouldve spent that on just the milk and bread alone at walmart so im not complaining.
Our milk here is definatly more expensive than yours!

Thanks for sharing this information. I would probably not have noticed the changes. I still continues to be cheaper than other places though, especially when you need to make a quick run to store for something you forgot to purchase.

I noticed the bananas, too! I also noticed the cooking spray (similar to PAM) went from 99c to $1.19 in my area. :(

WOW! I wish we paid $1.99 for milk. Skim gallon is $3.89... In PA they regulate milk prices...

Before Aldi came to South Florida I rarely drank milk, because I was already spending so much on my kids milk. I love that Aldi's milk is hormone free, and I sure hope they keep the price low.

Thank you for linking up at the Aldi SavingsLinky at the Aldi Spot.
