Just one more point about these stores: You can save on non-food items there, too. I love Aldi’s Tandil laundry detergent, and have heard rumors that it’s actually Tide in a different bottle. I just know it gets my laundry clean, cheap. Their Shique shampoo and conditioner work fine, and I’m crazy about their Lacura anti-aging skin care line, which is terrific, and less expensive than drugstore brands. Save-a-Lot’s Glo is the best bargain dishwashing liquid I’ve tried; I think it’s as good as Dawn.
