What I always must get when I shop at Aldi.
Aldi is the brand of two German family-owned discount supermarkets, and my family loves shopping at this grocery store.
You will need a quarter to get a cart unless you want to carry everything in your arms.
If you do not have a quarter, you may exchange a dollar at the cashier. Sometimes the cashier will give you a quarter so that you could use a cart, though, which shows just how amazing their customer service is. You may repay the kindness by returning that quarter later after you finish your shopping.
Regarding bags, you may use reusable bags in stores, repurpose empty cardboard boxes from inside the store, or purchase paper or plastic bags at checkout.
Paper bags are 7 cents, and plastic bags 10 cents in Nashville, TN.
Since coming to the USA, I’ve been doing grocery shopping at Aldi most of the time because their products are high-quality; I genuinely like what they offer.
Some of the things you must get that’s worth your buck:
Items for Charcuterie board
- You will find so many different, High-quality and inexpensive cheeses that look and taste expensive at Aldi. Pretty impressive!
- Dry salami, prosciutto, smoked fish, and deli meat.
- Nuts: pistachio, peanuts, almonds, etc.
- Dry Fruit: figs, apricots, etc.
- Pickled vegetables: gherkins or pickles, olives, stuffed mini peppers, pickled jalapenos, etc.
- Crackers: gluten-free options, pita chips, entertainment crackers, etc.
- Fresh produce.
Fish, Bacon and Ground Beef
- I love purchasing raw meat and fish at Aldi. It is always the best quality, and I have never seen their meat mixed with old ones; some stores are mixing old and new ground beef, which is disgusting and wrong.
- I would highly RECOMMEND Aldi’s beef, fish such as salmon, pork/bacon, even the chicken. I have never had a problem with it, so put that on your list if you eat fish and meat.
I feel like everyone already knows about Aldi’s inexpensive produce.
- Not only will you find a plethora of fresh fruit and veggies, but it’s all of excellent quality and pretty affordable. I get probably a week’s worth of produce. Most of the time, when farmer markets are closed during winter, I get all of it at Aldi because I love what they carry and how fresh it all looks.
- Some of my favorite fresh produce from Aldi: mushrooms, mixed greens, assorted mini tomatoes, English cucumber, mini cucumbers, peppers, cabbage, cauliflower, pears, bananas, avocados, kiwi, etc.
Low-Carb Bread, Tortillas, or Wraps
Some of my favorite wraps come from ALDI.
When I started the low-carb and keto journey, I had to change my lifestyle; it was mostly to clear brain fog, help me mentally, and, of course, to lose weight.
This lifestyle gave me so much more. I love going to Aldi every week to find excellent products that fit and support my lifestyle. Their bread and wraps are a Lifesaver. I can make a quick snack or when a meal using their wraps.
They are fantastic, and even if you are not on a low-carb diet, they carry gluten-free bread, baked goods, and wraps, as well as regular carbolicious items.
