ALDI: A quick trip

I love ALDI because of the store's compactness.  You can get in and grab the things you need in just a few minutes.  And assuming there's no line at the cashier, you can be out in just a few more minutes, depending on how quick you can pack your own bags.   It's a much better shopping experience than your typical grocery store or national chain store, where the major categories of food (produce, milk, meat, bakery) are kept as far apart as possible.

Here's what I got on my last quick trip:

2 gallons  milk @ $2.99 = $5.98
1 cream cheese @ $1.19
1 sour cream @ $1.29
1 head lettuce @ $1.19
2 apple juice concentrate @ 92¢ = $1.84
1 3-pack tomatoes @ 99¢
1 box juice pouches @ $1.79
1 pack tortillas @ $1.99
1 5-lb all-purpose flour @ $1.79
1 whole wheat bread @ $1.29

Total product:  $19.33
Tax: 11¢
Total out of pocket: $19.44

It always takes me a while to bag my own groceries, I have to laugh at myself because almost all the time I spend in the store is trying to get my groceries in my bags.
