Usually, I shop at Aldi because they have cheap off-brand food. But I'm beginning to wonder if this is the best way to do the shopping. I tend to like to do my grocery shopping every 2 to 3 weeks. And even with shopping at Aldi, I easily spend $100 for just Nathan and I for those 2 weeks.
We have a Jewel card because we lived really close to one in Tinley Park and it was easy to run to Jewel for small things. I only shopped there once or twice, because, while they are my favorite place to shop, they are much more expensive. I have never been a coupon-shopper but I'm starting to think if I maintain a list and take coupons and use our prefered card Jewel might be cheaper. Or even Wal-Mart.
