What is the Price of Eggs at Aldi?
Prices at Aldi don’t change very often but there are some items, like eggs, that become more or less expensive throughout the year, depending on supply and demand. If there is a shortage of, say, tomatoes, tomatoes will be more expensive at Aldi than usual.
As mentioned above, the same was true of the price of eggs at Aldi recently. Aldi eggs price has always been a bit higher it seems but, when I took a close look, I realized I was paying quite a bit more for eggs than I would elsewhere. A dozen of eggs at Aldi was costing me about $1.29. At Walmart, a dozen of eggs was priced at $0.69. That is almost twice the price. So, what’s the deal with the egg price at Aldi?
Making the Most of Shopping at Aldi
Aldi’s prices, as explained above, will go up and down with the season, especially where fresh produce is concerned. However, most other items stay around the same price. I will note that a couple weeks after the noted increased egg price, the cost did drop back down under $1 per dozen ($0.79) but it instigated further thought about how to shop at Aldi.
There is no doubt that Aldi is cheaper on most things. Blocks of cheese, for instance, have an average price of about $1.79 at Aldi. In a traditional grocer, blocks of cheese oftentimes cost more than $3. Meat prices at Aldi are also extremely competitive. The grocer’s frozen foods, canned goods, fresh produce, and dry foods sections are also lined with competitive prices. So competitive, in fact, that it often makes people shrug away the higher prices.
Always Compare Prices
If you are going to make the most of shopping at Aldi, or any grocer for that matter, you will always want to compare prices. Of course, don’t spend extra money store hopping (if it will cost you extra in gas) but try to go where the items you need are cheapest.
As previously stated, most of the time Aldi is the cheapest place to go for your grocery items (and well worth the trip). The Aldi eggs price above will demonstrate that it isn’t always the cheapest though. You will want to continue to scan your local advertisements for deals, especially on meat and fresh produce. These items don’t go on sale often at Aldi. In fact, Aldi doesn’t really have any “sales.” It is also important to note that Aldi does not accept coupons and will not provide price matches like many other grocers do.
Keeping these things in mind, you should always compare prices and be sure you are getting the most out of your money. Your food bill is one part of your budget you can control closely, so why not save as much as you possibly can?
