    Yeah, if you're into canned veggies for food prep, canned ham, canned soup. Those are all worth the trip.

    I must admit I haven't tried a lot of the stuff we bought yet non-perishable-wise.

    We're on the same page. Those are my vino go-to's when I go there. I often pick up a case of both. Seriously.

    We have as many Aldi's as McDonald's here in Houston I think. They seem to be on every corner. I tried them when they first opened a few years ago and didn't care for it. You want a quarter for what???? Maybe I give them another look.

    Years ago Aldis came here and I gave them a try. Paying for carts and bringing my own bags was a real turnoff. Standing in line forever to checkout really sucked. And their off-brand foods I tried didn’t really taste very good. In all fairness, checkout times at the local Walmart are also very long so maybe that negative is a wash. If you need to save every penny possible, then Aldis may be an option for you. Me? I’ll pass.

    Lines weren't so bad for me. Maybe because we went mid-day?
