I went by Aldi this morning and picked up some of the great deals this week.

Check out these prices including a fabulous buy on roses and strawberries from North Carolina!

    debcorr - super deal on the milk at the Fuquay Aldi!!

  • debcorr May 2, 2016

    I just came back from shopping at the Fuquay Aldi's. Got one gallon of milk for $1.69. There was a sign that said limit of 2 gallons on the milk case.

    I passed up the chicken (still have plenty in the freezer from previous sales) and the milk (found half gallons clearance priced for $0.75 at Kroger yesterday). Hopefully others will be able to take advantage of all of these great prices at Aldi.

    I love butter lettuce and will make a trip today just for that!!

    Dr D - great price on the milk! It was $2.29 for skim in Garner - still a good deal. And YAY on getting the amazing chicken deal!

    There were still 2 pkgs of the chicken breasts at the Durham Aldi this morning when I shopped before work, but they were out of the 1 lb pkg of wild-caught salmon that's a regular purchase item for me. Picked up some eggs, 3 tins of sardines, cooked salad shrimp, organic grape tomatoes, and bananas this morning. Their milk is $1.99/gallon again this week. I love Aldi, and am so thankful they are not far from my workday commute.

    Em2s - I hope they have restocked when you go. There was a sign over the strawberries indicating that there was a shortage. They had probably restocked my store (Garner) this morning because they had plenty of strawberries at 9:30 am. Good luck!

    earlychd99 - I hope they have the chicken when you go as well.

    Faye - Great shopping trip! I'm encouraged to make a second visit later today. My Thursday visit found the Cary store to have been heavily shopped prior to my midday arrival. I still found a bag of the Garden Salad for $.69, one container of those luscious strawberries for $1.49 and celery for $.99. Thanks for sharing your great buys!
