One thing that I love about ALDI is that some items are even cheaper there than if you bought the name brand at Publix on sale and with coupons.
For instance, take crackers. The thin wheat kind (similar to Wheat Thins) are $1.39 per box and the woven wheat kind (similar to Triscuits) are $1.25 per box at my store. The same-sized name brand at Publix costs $3.69. If it went on a BOGO sale, that would be two boxes for $3.69, or $1.85 per box.
The current best coupon right now for those products is the $0.75/2 Nabisco Cookie or Cracker Product, exp. 7/14/13 (SS 05/19/13 R) coupon. So subtracting that, you'd get two boxes for $2.94, or $1.47 per box.
So the ALDI price is even better! And because of that, I picked up two boxes of crackers along with the rest of my groceries. My kids love to snack on cheese and crackers.
Here's what I got:
2 gallons milk @ $3.39 = $6.78
2 apple juice concentrate @ 99¢ = $1.98
1 16-oz shredded cheddar @ $3.29
1 8-oz cheddar block @ $1.79
2 cream cheese @ $1.19 = $2.38
2 blueberries @ $1.69 = $3.38
1 Romaine hearts @ $1.99
1.77 lb bananas @ 44¢/lb = 78¢
1 thin wheat crackers @ $1.39
1 instant oatmeal @ $1.49
1 fruit snack bar @ $1.89
1 woven wheat crackers @ $1.25
2 whole wheat bread @ $1.29 = $2.58
Total spent: $30.97
