When I need to really stick to a small grocery budget, Aldi is the place I shop. I know that I can rely on their low prices to fill my cart with fresh produce, dairy and anything else I need for the week without spending much at all.
Here’s a recent grocery trip where I did just that! I picked up everything I needed for a week of meals – of course also relying on a full pantry and freezer to fill in any holes in the menu. My total came to $50 for two adults – right on track!
There are things in this haul that I prefer to purchase at my local grocery store instead of at Aldi (cheese and meat being the biggest ones). Most of the time I can get better deals on those things outside of Aldi, but that was not the case this particular week. It’s nice to be able to fall back on Aldi’s low prices when I need them!

If you have to stick with a low grocery budget at the end of the month – or every week – take heart! You’re not alone. There are lots of us pinching our pennies, cutting our coupons and settling for Aldi cheese! 🙂
