It's nice when you can save money, but sometimes getting the store brand isn't wroth it. I don't like store brand cereal, etc. Today I bought two different store brand bakery items and I didn't like either of them. One had a terrible after taste, ugh. I regret buying it.

I rarely have problems with store brands but I will buy the name brand if it's on sale. One store brand product I was disappointed with was their pizza rolls. I tried one box at .99 cents and they weren't good at all. Totinos pizza rolls average $2.19 for a box of 15 and aren't worth it. The same store that had the ones I didn't like ran a sale on Totinos at 10-for-$10 and I had 30 coupons good for $1.00 off 2 boxes so that brought the cost down to $15 plus this store has printable coupons that let you save $5.00 off a $25.00 purchase so my final cost for 30 boxes was $10.00 and I saved over $55.00.

I used to love pizza rolls till I got burned out on them. I used to love those little Stouffer's meatloaf and roasted turkey tv dinners but paying over 3 dollars for 5 bitefuls of food just didn't seem worth it. Now I'm hooked on those Patio single burritos for 50 cents apiece.

I LOVE Aldi! They have fantastic produce and imported, special stuff. I actually haven't had a lot of luck finding meat at my local store - the selection is really poor (the beef wasn't very lean). I've been to another one that had a lot more/better meat variety, so I guess it is different at each store.

Many of their store brands are made by "name brand" companies but have an Aldi label.

There stores are very clean, and the associates are very knowledgeable. Aldi is definitely my favorite grocery store for saving money.

They were selling boxes of cupcakes for 69 cents,it was a company I never heard of and the cupcakes were stale and didn't have much taste but the price was delicious. I checked out their meat section and found a pack of those 6 thin porkchops which sells for 7 dollars in the other store I normally shop at but were only 2.99. They didn't look too swift though, kind of gray in color and I could not read the expiration date because someone smudged the ink, probably on purpose. I wonder what my expiration date would have been if I ate them, I decided not to buy them. They did have good prices on potato chips, only a couple bucks for a huge bag not 4-5 dollars like I normally see. Really getting sick of these high prices.

Not really, I just decided to buy less of it and pace myself through the month which seems to be working. Inflation can f*ck with my money management skills LOL

I must have my Polmolive dishwahing liquid and ONLY Heinz catsup. Otherwise, store brands frequently turn out to be just as good as the higher priced name brands.

I like Aldi very much too. Wished there were more in NYC. Great store.

Found these organic chips yesterday at Big Lots. They were only $2.25 for a one pound bag and with most other brands you only get about 10 ounces. They are great and the fact that they're organic is another plus.

My city used to have lots of grocery stores but now we only have three grocery stores in my area and when Mom and I would go grocery shopping we used to get all of our groceries at Albertson's and they had great prices on groceries and every time we would go grocery shopping I always looked forward to going to Albertson's because I looked forward to a trip to Ross Dress For Less after the grocery shopping was done and I would buy a new purse or backpack but then another grocery store brought Albertson's and then the prices for groceries weren't the same. In the country I have two grocery stores and one of them has been in business since the 50's and even with a name change it's still the same and Mom often goes there for groceries she can't find anywhere else but when a new shopping center opened up in the 80's the grocery store that the shopping center had opened up stole some of the other grocery store's customers and it's prices are good but the grocery store doesn't have many of the stuff they have featured in their sale ads. Another store that Mom and I go to sometimes is Smart And Final and we first heard about Smart And Final from my grandfather and we thought it was impressive and it has very good prices for groceries and they have giant boxes of almost every food you can think of. Lastly here's some secret advice that might help you when you are shopping for cheap groceries. If you want the best prices on eggs or snacks I recommend you head to CVS Pharmacy and you'll be amazed at what great eggs CVS Pharmacy has and not to mention their bagged popcorn tastes delicious too

I also buy my groceries at Target and what I mainly buy there is canned goods and milk and they have the best tasting milk in the whole universe and when Thanksgiving comes around Mom and I like to buy our Butterball turkeys at Target because they seem to have good sales on turkeys and we never have had a problem with Target's food sales. We also like to go to Kmart for groceries too as well
