    Just wanted to chime in...I had to buy a lot of "staple" items a couple of days ago. I talked DH into to Aldi with me. We made a quick trip and bought the staples needed (excluding milk which I buy locally and eggs which we do the same) and a few extra "non-staple" items. Wow! They are pricey!! I do a large portion of my shopping at Trader Joe's, but I haven't had time to get there lately although I prob would have spent about the same!
