Pricebook -Bare Bones for Aldi and Sams Only

Since Grocery Game keeps track of prices at Harris Teeter for me and Food Lion--which I may be phasing out.. we'll see. I figure I can keep just a small price book and possibly even use it to cut/paste a grocery list when I need one. I decided a while ago to just keep track of prices for Sams Club and Aldi on things I sometimes buy at these two stores. I don't go to either of them every week. Right now I'm aiming at making a once a month trip to both.

Here's what my Price List for Aldi and Sams looks like right now it is updated as of the last time I was in either store:

* This is obviously NOT a perfect price list. Next time I update it I hope to get more info on sizes/prices and unit prices included. For now it works ok because I have a good idea for my own personal use what size I'm getting for the price. Its a useful list even if its not a perfect list--that's what matters most!


  1. Thanks for posting this list. I'm in SC and plan to go to Aldi tomorrow. It has been so long since I was there I really had no idea what to expect.

  2. Hi Debtfree-- I need to do a better job on that price list-- its not much use if you don't include unit prices--but it is 'bare bones'. Did you know that you can the weekly flyer for Aldi in your email? That's how I knew that butter was going to be $1.99. I love real butter so I kind of planned to stop there this week rather than next just cuz I knew about that. My Harris Teeter puts it on sale for about $3--that's nuts!
