Do you love ALDI? Are you nervous to shop at ALDI? Marie talks about all the things she loves about ALDI. What do you need to know before you shop at ALDI? What do you want to avoid when shopping at ALDI? It’s ALDI 101. All the basics for shopping at ALDI.

-Bring a quarter

-Bring grocery bags, but if you forget, grab a box in the store or buy a couple of paper bags at the checkout for 7 cents each. (You will save so much that it is okay to buy a few bags.)

-ALDI has the best prices on conventional produce and good prices on organic produce.

-All house brand items are free of synthetic food dye.

-If you try an item and do not like it, they will replace the item and refund your money with a receipt, so don’t be afraid to try new items.

-Watch out for “Special Buy” or “Seasonal” items. If you find a product you like, go back right away and stock up because it may not be back again for a year.
