    Wow, we normally buy 2%, but for $0.59 I'll pour a little half & half in it!

  • Faye Prosser -WRAL Smart Shopper Mar 5, 2015

    That is an awesome price, Anna! Thanks for sharing!

  • acs0427 Mar 5, 2015

    I noticed that the gallons of milk at the Garner Aldi were priced at $2.89 this week. And the 1% and skim milk half gallons were 59 cents!!!!!!!!!! I didn't see a tag for the 2% or whole so I don't know if they're the same price, but I couldn't believe my eyes!
