Amy Clark, creator of Momadvice.com, reveals the secrets of shopping at Aldi's in this article. I didn't know that Aldi's is known as the German Walmart, or that Trader Joe's is its upscale cousin. If you want to try Aldi's, she points out its double guarantee on products. I didn't like their slimey French cut green beans, but have come to love their individually sealed portions of frozen salmon. She includes a link to sign up for Aldi's electronic newsletter, so you can keep informed of weekly specials and limited quantities of non-grocery items. Aldi's has recently moved into my area--it's still not on my weekly schedule--but the stores are fresh and clean.
