Can You Shop Aldi Only? How To Make Aldi Your One Stop Store


See all the best current deals going on at Aldi this week right over HERE! 

Could you shop Aldi only? I shop Aldi occasionally for produce, milk, spices and eggs, but have never gone to the store expecting to buy my entire grocery list there.


However, yesterday when I was shopping I noticed that they really do have everything. And the because they don't have so much of everything (for example 101 types of cereal in the cereal aisle like our local Kroger and Meijer do . . . ) I can get in and out without spending hours perusing the aisles.


As a busy mom, spending way too long at the grocery store drives me nuts, and I love that Aldi is small enough that I can quickly get in and out of the store. And, if I forget an item at the checkout lane it doesn't take me too long to run back through the store to get what I missed.


So I started looking closely and questioning if you could buy absolutely everything there? Here are the things I noticed . . .

Aldi has an abundance of snacks, including gluten free options. They also carry Pepperidge Farm Goldfish (priced at $1.85 – I usually only buy them on sale at Kroger for $.99, so that's pretty pricey for me but their store brand is priced at $1.49 per package at least?)


Aldi has tons of baking products. I tried to see if there was anything they were missing, but couldn't find anything  we would need that wasn't there. They have olive oil (for just $2.99!), real vanilla, cooking spray and spices.

I tested their Aldi brand semi sweet morsels (for research purposes of course . . . you're welcome.), and honestly they taste almost identical to Nestle Morsels. At $1.79 per bag that's a pretty incredible price (they rarely go below $2 at the grocery store), so I may switch over to buying them completely. (Which is saying something, I'm pretty picky when it comes to chocolate chip cookies!)


Aldi has a  huge selection of bread products. I was shocked at the price of English Muffins there – I've paid as much as $3 for them at the local grocery store, but Aldi had them for just $.99!

They also have gluten free items, and be sure to watch for discounts on bread as well. My store had a huge bin of discounted bread for $.25 per loaf (several different types, including whole wheat and low calorie breads, which was all incredibly fresh when I checked it.) I asked the cashier about it and he said their policy is to not let it get closer than 5 days out from their sell by date, so definitely watch for those deals when you're there!


Aldi has a huge selection of dairy products, including eggs, milk, cream cheese, real butter, and even coffee creamer. The best price I noticed was on their store brand cheddar cheese (16 oz. for $3.29), and I'm pretty sure you could find everything your family would need when you're there.

The toughest one for me to buy of course at Aldi is . . . meat. I have never bought meat at Aldi (I'm just funny about that!), but when I asked my cashier he shared that most of their chicken comes from the Tyson distributor, and even looking at the packages they had Butterball Turkeys and Appleton Farms Hams. The prices were decent (although I have seen better prices occasionally on sale at my local grocery store), and Aldi allows you to return items if you're not pleased with them so their meat might just be worth trying out.


(I've had several friends buy meat at Aldi and they've been pleased with their meat ~ I'd love to hear your thoughts if you've purchased meat there!)


Aldi has paper products and cleaning supplies, however you won't find the jillion items you might see at a larger grocery store. We're almost out of toilet paper (gasp!) so I bought some of their store brand TP and while I don't love it quite as much as Quilted Northern, it wasn't too bad. 🙂


They do carry some name brands (like Tide laundry detergent), but the price on that at Aldi is high. If you love name brand items at all I wouldn't recommend shopping Aldi because even though they carry a few of those items they just don't have great prices on them, but if you're willing to try Aldi store brands you can easily save!

Aldi also has pet food, a few pet treats, and kitty litter. I had no idea they carried pet supplies at all, but my dog loved the treats I brought him home yesterday. 🙂
Aldi does carry a very small selection of toiletries, including personal care items, shampoo, and soap. I also noticed sunscreen, razors and even batteries, so you might really be able to make Aldi your one stop shop!


When I asked the cashier about things he's heard people complain about missing at Aldi he mentioned shaving gel and bug spray ~ so you might have to head to another store every once in awhile. But, as I went through the store I realized they really do have just about everything we use (just packaged as Aldi brands), so I'm seriously considering trying a month to see how switching would effect our grocery budget.


I won't try to make the switch until January (the grocery store sales during November and December are too good to miss!), but maybe we'll try out a January-Aldi-Only-Challenge here in 2016. Anyone wanna join me? 🙂


If you shop only Aldi I'd love to hear your thoughts, and I'd love to know how you've saved by shopping there. Leave a comment to share ~ I love hearing from you!

The Ultimate Aldi, Costco, Sam’s, Target & Walmart Price Comparison Sheet

UPDATE: we *just* updated the Ultimate Aldi, Costco, Sam's, Target & Walmart Price Comparison Cheat Sheet with 2019 prices ~ go HERE to print yours! 

Do you struggle finding the lowest price at your local stores for every day items? Look NO FURTHER! We have pulled together the ultimate comparison sheet at Aldi, Costco, Sam's, Target & Walmart!!

To get Aldi, Target, Walmart Comparison Sheet, go HERE and download your free PDF.


I'm soooo excited to have this updated, and now all our most popular stores compared on one simple list!

Check out Video over HERE!



The PPP team has just updated this amazing (seriously A.M.A.Z.I.N.G.) reference guide for you to use every time you shop Aldi, Costco, Sam's, Target and Walmart.


 I SERIOUSLY LOVE THIS LIST ~ I'm a penny pinching dork and it just makes me happy to always know the best prices!




Now, as always, pricing will vary a bit by area and your store, but this gives you a good basic starting place with an idea of what to really expect at each store.



And if you're like me, I'm betting you'll be a little surprised at how the prices stack up.



I never (ever?) would have expected Walmart and Target to be higher on so many items (not everything, but many things!), so the results were pretty interesting to me.


 Here are a few things you need to know to fully take advantage of this list:

  • These are everyday prices on these items and don't include any special sales at all. If you can wait for a sale at Target or Walmart you'll get a better price, so this is just your starting point.

  • We did the best we could to compare things evenly across the board. We looked at basic generic brands as much as we were able to (i.e. Up & Up for Target and Great Value for Walmart), and gave you the exact item name so you can compare too.
  • These prices were updated in the Southeast, so your pricing will vary some by store. This just gives you a handy little reference guide to get an idea of what to expect.
  • ****MOST IMPORTANTLY**** This is such a valuable tool when shopping other store sales. A few weeks ago I was shopping the Mega Sale at Kroger and while I thought I was getting a good price on peanut butter, a quick look at this list let me know that I was getting a serious stock up price. Even if you don't use this list to compare these stores to one another, it is so stinkin' handy so that you'll always know when you're getting the very best price on an item.  WOOHOOO! 😉 


Okie dokie ~ are you ready for it? Print yours HERE!
