The coatings on the metal must add a unique flavor before it kills the user.

Ya know not many people realize they can not use their old refrigerator racks as grills, either.

I look back at the stupid shit we did in the Boy Scouts; burning milk jugs, burning treated wood, using refrigerator racks as grills, and a lot of other bone headed things its a wonder any of us are still alive and not coughing up blood or body parts.

yeah.....compared to kids today, we were toxic almost daily with the lead, asbestos, playing outside all the time in the dirt, catching mumps and measles. It's amazing we did survive at all.

When was the last time you saw a refrigerator with metal racks.

Now, you guys don't strike me as Aldi's shoppers. That's pretty much the joke here. In order to use a wagon at that market, you have to insert a quarter into the lock at the top and voila! You've got a carriage to use. When you leave, you park the carriage and collect your quarter back. Or, in this case, you keep the carriage you bought for a quarter!

I'm not ashamed to say we shop at aldis. We only buy certain things but what we do buy is just as good as anywhere else!

I was absolutely fucking dying for this but my local one was sold out.

Eta...hold on, not quite sure how to work this...

Eta 2....here we go!!!

Good to know I'm in good company. I love their cracker assortment. Just as good as the Ritz or other brand names.

There are good buys there but one you may not have tried: grab one of their hams. Not the spiral cut jobs but one of the normal hams. I was extremely pleased with the flavor. Also, we find Maple Leaf Farms ducks there for good money as well. As you said, it's a store that you go to for certain items at excellent prices and shop elsewhere for everything else.

I eat a high protein, high fiber diet and buy alot of my nuts there. Unsalted

We also get alot of produce and half pound blocks of cheese.

Also canned salmon, peanut butter, maple syrup and butter prices are pretty good.

Feed my family of four on 100-140 a week.

Love Aldi. Great store with great prices.

I wish every retailer would adopt the quarter shopping carts. I get annoyed when prime parking spots are taken by carts.

Yeah, cuz if they're too lazy to put it in the coral 5ft away, a shiny quarter is really gonna tempt them to walk back to the store.

It ain't easy. Especially when you don't eat junk food. Fresh produce and uncanned meats are our biggest expense, I'm going broke on berries, kids love them and how can I refuse when they reach for that instead of Oreo's or chips.

But I look at a gallon of milk for 3bucks vs a gallon of flavored sugar water for 99cents and I can see how the ignorant would automatically go to the cheapest item.

Exactly. We dont have any crap in the house, save for some things around holidays. Always fresh fruit and produce. Yogurt instead of sour cream, etc. Very little prepared food gets bought. Our kids drink water and milk, with juice being a rare occasion.

My wife will watch a couponing show or read a blog and cringe at the stuff some people feed to their families, all because it was on sale.

My wife is a good shopper. She grew up dirt poor and will not waste money. She shops at Aldi and only buys sales at the other stores.

We tracked our grocery bills for 6 months. We spent an average of $55 per week on groceries. This is a family of 3 with a teenage boy and a fat guy.

I would tease that "we only get to eat what is on sale".

My wife buys no junk food and no prepared food. If we did that our food bill would have been even less. Healthy food is expensive.

Now that I am eating less and my son lef for the Navy our food bill is down to about $40 a week.

That's awesome! If I had more free time I could really cut down on our free time with foraging hunting and fishing.

Can't beat their prices on milk, eggs, creamer for coffee or cheese !!!

There is a "dark side" to shopping at Aldi's. I'm surprised no one has mentioned it. That dark side is that there are more products than not that are from China. Not Japan or Taiwan or Korea but China. Now, I will NOT buy any food products from China, period, and that does for my dog, too.

Also, it's prudent to look hard at the contents of some products. For instance, the Half and Half is a great price but it has carrageenan in it to give it more body. I prefer to have my cream more pure, than you very much. On a flip side, bacon there can be a good price and they do quite often lower salt bacon. It has zero affect on the flavor but you can find bacon with only 325 mg of salt instead of 600mg. That's good. I tend not to buy meat (with the exception of the aforementioned hams and ducks). There are lots of staple products there that can save you a lot on your weekly bill. Just stay away from Chinese canned veggies. Can't imagine where they were grown and thinking of those millions of farmers squatting in their fields bothers me.

Crap! Just got back over $3.00 for a gallon of milk for the snow

Aldis is ok in my book. Except the mayonnaise that is terrible .

We have a food pantry in town.

My wife and i have good jobs and make decent money, but those old fuckers dont care. I feed all 7 of us for like 20 bucks. We really only buy milk and beer.
