I have been out of sorts ever since one of my favorite healthy grocery stores shut down a few months ago and we have a limited amount of organic/health stores in my area. So I was thrilled to hear that ALDI was coming to our town in SO CAL! I have seen them all over the south and have heard great things about them, so I was excited to try it out for myself. We really try to only buy organic meats and the dirty dozen fruits and veggies. ALDI offers its SimplyNature® line of foods which includes USDA Certified organic and Non-GMO foods. They also carry liveGfree® gluten-free products, and USDA Choice meats! This I am very excited about!


If you are new to ALDI here is a few things that I learned on my trip:

#1. Carts are available for you to use, but you must deposit a quarter. When customers are done using the cart, they return it and get their money back. This is a way for them to keep prices lower!

#2. 90% of their groceries are under its own exclusive ALDI brand, which are high quality and tested to make sure it taste great!


#3. ALDI offers its SimplyNature® line which includes USDA Certified organic and Non-GMO verified items, liveGfree® gluten-free products, USDA Choice meats and NeverAny! products that are free from added antibiotics, hormones and animal by-products.

#4. ALDI is a lot smaller and made shopping quick and easy. They only have about 4-5 shopping aisles and that is my kind of grocery store.



#5. You bag your own groceries at the end of the check out. This makes the line go by super quick!

#6. You can purchase your own bags at the store for super cheap or bring your own bags in. YES!


#7. The store hours are typically from 9 AM to 9 PM, which also helps keep labor costs down.

#8. They have something called DOUBLE GUARANTEE, which I think is pretty amazing. If you see the double guarantee on any item in the store and if for any reason you are not 100% satisfied with any product, they will gladly replace the product AND refund your money.

#9. They are affordable! ALDI believes in the philosophy of keeping things simple – offer premium high-quality natural and organic food that everyone can afford. I love a store that keeps things high quality, yet affordable! Amazing right?!

#10. ALDI Finds are food and household items that are in stores for a limited time. If you like an ALDI Find, buy it. It won’t last long and will most likely sell out. I bought a couple bags of popcorn for RJ that I know she is going to love!

My haul…

I got a few organic fruits and vegetables, Happy Farms Farmhouse Cheddar Cheese, Chateau Cote Nord Chardonnay, SimplyNature® Organic 100% Grass Fed Ground Beefand Foster Farms Organic Chicken Breasts as well as a Mama Cozzi’s Pizza Kitchen 4 Meat Pizzafor dinner tonight that was only $5.99! My whole grocery haul was less than $80 and I got a lot of things that will last a couple weeks.


I am most excited about the SimplyNature® line of foods and the WINE FIND tags! You know me and my wine 😉


I am so glad I gave ALDI a try and I know that we will be back again soon! I hope you give ALDI a try and let me know what you think?!
