A Whole Kart of Grocery Shopping for Under $100 at Aldi

Updated on November 5, 2013

I have a mission. My mission is to prove that you can fill a shopping Kart for under $100.

Below, you will find a list of groceries that filled a whole Kart for under $100 that I recently purchased at Aldi. And the truth is, that I wasn't even being careful of my budget. Some people have a low opinion of Aldi and personally I think that their opinions are skewed and unfair. These people believe their food to be of the worst quality, yet those same people have never shopped there. Personally, I find their food to be of the best quality. Their meat can be a little mediocre at times (it's not terrible at all at the same time) but the rest is always great.

Regarding their dairy products, they are all produced locally in my area and to be honest, the list below could have been a lot cheaper, but I like to buy some nicer things. Most items have a cheaper alternative.


To further my point, in the coming weeks, I will be writing articles with recipes made from the shopping list below to show what kind of delicious meals you can make and their low prices.

      I wish there were prices like this where I live. The prices are amazing. The grape tomatoes at the grocery were $3.89 when I looked at them last night.

      I don't have an Aldi anywhere near me, but when I was in Germany at the beginning of the year we shopped there weekly for groceries. It's my Uncle's second favorite grocery stores, Lidl is his all time favorite.

      Funny thing, I went shopping there today and got a huge amount of produce and other stuff and spent $43. A fresh pineapple for 99 cents, Wonderful! It's like the old grocery stores of the 60s only newer. Potato chips for $1.49. They're tasty and bad for me but I like them.

      12.6 Oz bag in my hand cost $2.99. I do everything except Meat shopping there. Some Aldi are not so good with fruit and veg and may take some looking to get a nice set of fruit, but more often than not they are great with fruit. Also, some of them are great with Meat too.

      They are AMAZING with chocolate. There wine (winking owl) is also tasty and 2.99 a bottle.

      This is very interesting. We just got a new Aldi within the last couple of years. It's about 45 minutes from here so I haven't gone. But I was talking to a friend in Indiana a couple of years ago who shops exclusively at Aldi. I've had people tell me that I can save a lot of money shopping there. We just haven't been able to make the drive. Now I'll have to try it out! Those are good bargains.

      The peanut M&Ms, small bag at our local store is $4.85! LOL
