Inflation is affecting everyone these days, so finding a deal wherever you can is important.  The great thing about this low-cost grocery chain is that it also gets rave reviews from shoppers.

There are multiple fan pages dedicated to the grocery store.  Plus, people are often posting about how much they bought there, or fun finds that only this store has.  I'm talking about Aldi and this is one of those posts that shows a believer in the low prices there.

A new Aldi location in Sartell just opened this past November and there's another in Waite Park.  You can see all of the Minnesota locations HERE.
