I go to ALDI about once a month to stock up on staples.
My favs are:
Vinegar for .75c
Tomato paste and tomato sauce about .25c
Pineapple 1.79 the best price I have ever seen.
Old fashion Oatmeal big container 1.75
Maple Syrup 1.50 this is a good size.
I buy milk when I go but find it compares to the other stores.
Sweet condensed milk for about 1.25 a can is a staple at my house as I am constantly making fudge for the kids or school functions.
Speaking of Fudge if you need to bring a baked good to a school function here is a quick easy receipt for the busy Mom.
16 oz of Chocolate Chips. “1 Cup” (This is flexible, can be baking chocolate or chocolate waivers.)
4 Tbs. Butter
14 oz. can sweet condensed milk.
Melt the butter on low to Med heat in a Med sauce pan for about 30 sec. add the chocolate and stir for about 3 Min's, then add the sweet milk stir for about 5-8 Min's or until the mixture is well blended. Line a loaf pan or 8x8 pan with wax or parchment paper. (What ever you have in the pantry) and pour in mixture. Cool in Fridge for at least two hours. You can slice the fudge or cut into pieces for the function.
