These lovely grapefruit specimens were a mere $.19 apiece. At my regular grocery store, they sell for $1.19 regularly, and for $.99 on sale. This price is prohibitively expensive when I’m buying produce for all six of us to eat, and so I buy grapefruit only rarely, and usually I don’t buy enough for all of us. At $.19, though, we all got to have a half with dinner.
I thought perhaps these would be not quite as good as the $.99 grapefruit, but they were juicy and very sweet. In fact, they were better than the more expensive ones.
I also got a one pound bag of cranberries for $1.19. I have yet to see the same thing for less than $2.50 anywhere else. The $.45/pound bananas are the cheapest I’ve found(except for at Costco), and same goes for the grape tomatoes and the red peppers. I used to buy red peppers at Costco, but I wasn’t a fan of having to buy 10 of them at a time(it was a lot of work to avoid wasting that many!). Now I can pay the same price and only buy two.
Oh, and how could I forget?? The big bag of Fresh Express spinach is only $1.33! I have never seen spinach that cheap before, not even on sale. We use this for salads(a post on that is coming tomorrow), and also in smoothies. I’ve been wanting to eat more spinach since it’s a very healthy food, so I’m thrilled to have found such a cheap place to buy it.
So, a big thank you to my friends Sophia and Laura for encouraging me to finally to go to Aldi’s…I’m so happy I did! And if you’re one of those people who hasn’t hauled themselves over to an Aldi’s yet(assuming you have one close by), consider yourself prodded by me. 😉
