Aldi My Favorite Store
Aldi is my favorite grocery store of all time. When we lived in Texas it was heartbreaking there wasn’t an Aldi near by. When I saw Instacart delivery form Aldi was available I was thrilled. I mean get my groceries don’t have to drag the kids to the store with me and get a great price typical of Aldi. What could be better than that to a busy Mom ?
Uh…Oh…Not So Awesome Prices
I eagerly logged onto the Instacart website and created my account. I began to fill my cart with groceries from my list for the week. The first thing that caught my eye was Bananas the Instacart price was $0.45 a pound. In store the Bananas are priced at $0.38 a pound. Yes, I know only $0.07 a pound however little differences like that begin to add up quickly. Eggs priced at $1.09 on Instacart and $0.99 in Store. So, after further research I decided to get up and go shopping at Aldi. Below is my receipt for the store purchases. I have also included a screen shot of my Instacart cart .
Sooo….What I think about Instacart
My in store total was $89.47 my Instacart total was $87.03 before delivery. However I wasn’t able to add the Ice cream into my Instacart total. Which would have brought it to $89.52 + $4.99 delivery fee + the default 5% tip fee bringing my total to $99.23. Shopping in store cost less when you figure in all the little extras. However, If I was pressed for time and needed groceries delivered I would use Instacart.
