The One Thing You Should Never Buy At Aldi (According To A Former Couponer)

As a former couponer, I know a thing or two about getting the best deals possible. Each week, I would do extensive research regarding the best sales and coupons. Surprisingly, I would often find at a store that doesn’t even accept coupons: Aldi. The no-frills supermarket has some of the lowest prices on groceries, including meat and produce. Although they don’t accept coupons, their discounted prices are hard to beat.

However, despite Aldi’s super cheap prices, there’s a few items you should avoid. Specifically, you can get name brand paper towels, toilet paper, and napkins for much cheaper at other stores. I found these paper goods are often a better deal at places like Walmart and CVS. If you shop sales and use coupons, you can beat Aldi’s prices by a landslide.

According to the blog Living Well, Spending Less, other items to avoid at Aldi include: coffee, dough, and cereal. Most of these items frequently go on sale at traditional grocery stores, plus you can use coupons. Regular supermarkets also tend to have a better selection of goods and variety of different brands available to customers. Traditional supermarkets carry approximately 40,000 products, while Aldi only stocks 1,200 of their most popular items.

If you are looking for a specific name brand item, Aldi isn’t always the best place to shop. More than 90 percent of the products in the store are Aldi exclusive brands. Although they sell some national brands, you never know when they will be in stock at Aldi. Despite this, Aldi’s “Double Guarantee” policy makes it a great place to shop. Under this policy, if you’re not 100% satisfied with any product, Aldi will replace the product and give you a refund. So go ahead and try Aldi brand items, if you aren’t impressed, there’s no risk to you or your wallet.
