Aldi is a go-to store on my shopping list...
Same here. Aldis, Shaws, and Market Basket are on my commute (I drive past three Market Baskets) and within about a half mile of each other. Hannaford is about two miles from my home and also on my commute. My shopping 'process' begins on Sunday when Aldi's posts their weekly ads. On Tuesday or Wednesday, Market Basket and Hannaford ads arrive in my mailbox. Thursday Shaws posts their upcoming ad and Friday Shaws posts their coupons.
I buy milk and eggs at Aldis or Market Basket. I also get most of my not-on-sale items at one of these stores. I shop Shaws for their ad. Hannaford is mostly for the ad as well. Both have digital coupons and a very good loyalty program. Market Basket, Shaws, and Hannaford have excellent bakeries.
I also pay attention to Amazop's subscribe and save promotions and occasionally visit Ocean State Job Lot for spices, batteries, and other commodities. Most of this is free as the back end of a Crazy Deal. Last week I bought a Z Grills pellet smoker for $399.99 that came with a $200 Crazy Card. This is a ZPG-550B which sells for $439 on Amazon.
